Shower Remodel

We have the current shower



Which we are looking to semi-rip out. We're thinking of keeping the shower pan and removing the flat cultured marble and replacing with tile.

In this type of application where we're keeping the existing shower pan (or replacing with another shower pan) Is replacing the walls with dura-rock then coating with a water-proof spread-on membrane (hydro ban) adequate?

Anything to be cognizant off when ripping this out?


Thanks

Shower Remodel Update

Alright here are some update pictures. Looking for some advice as to what would work and be appropriate.

We have left the existing shower pan in. Could we use the existing pan, add an appropriate CBU and then a waterproofing membrane like hydroban then tile?

If you look at the close up picture, I'm just concerned on how we would do that? Would the CBU rest on the existing pan or just outside of it then place the the hydroban on that and then overlapping into the pan, then tile?

Mark, It looks like your missing some of your tile flange (upturned lip) on your pan. I'm looking at the right side corners and it looks like they're broken away?

shpedly, yes that unfortunately is the case. When we removed the cultured marble wall, we noticed it wasnt there. It must have broken off or was damaged when it was originally installed 12 years ago.

Do you think that will become an issue?

Mark, You really need something there, for your waterproofing to attach to. You can replace the pan, which is going to be expensive, or you can get creative and repair the damaged areas. Very tedious, but it can be done.

It looks like some damage in the back too.

I'd replace the entire pan with a DIY mud pan.

Cabotrowe,
I see your are located in Houston. I'm curious what you would approximately charge to do a from scratch mud pan?

Okay so here is where i'm at. I just read the "How to on a shower deck" in the reference library forum. I'm not sure i'm confident enough in my DIY skills to correctly slope and built a shower pan from scratch.

If i'm able to find another shower pan whose drain holes match up with where my drain is now, maybe something like this:

Then what would be my next steps? CBU? Liner? Hydroban etc...

Thanks

One suggestion I have seen is to build a mock up of the shower pan, and do a practice run at the slope. Not necessarily full size just a few 2x4s and a scrap of plywood for the bottom and a piece of plywood to simulate the drain. I'll be doing that soon myself.

Pedestal Sink

I ripped out our old pedestal sink that was originally installed on the concretebslab then they put wood floors around it. We ripped out the wood,and plan to put a new pedestal sink in. Id prefer to put the pedestal sink over the new tile. Is this reccomended? Will i have any issues?

Welcome, Mark.

This all the same bathroom that's getting a new shower and wood-look tile floor?
