The pictures of the coping/corner turn just look like poor planning to me. If it were mine (as in someone doing it for me, vs. me doing it) I’d have them redo it. Taking out set, grouted, and cured...

I’d go with #3. It’s easier to pull out the board, cut the new one and screw it down. Done and I’d know it’s solid. Once you start patching and adding blocking, it takes time and effort and you...

Talk to Pulte directly, and bring the lead contractor in on the issue. Depends on how badly you want the home and how badly they want to move inventory. Depending on how the floor was laid, it...

With Schluter system stuff, you really don’t need the lifetime warranty; if it leaks, it’s due to an installation issue, not the materials. Depending on your experience, the few bucks more for the...

I went in the same order, from the bottom up. You may want something a bit thicker than cardboard, or in addition to it. I used some pieces of Masonite that were part of the packing from my mirror...

I had pretty much the same stuff in my bathroom project floor. I called it short strand OSB for lack of a better description. No one I’d asked could give me any info on it. I did learn that it...

Mold generally is a moist (vs.wet) surface thing. It would scrub off, especially with something soapy or bleachy. That it’s mainly where the water spray is, is odd for mold. The constant wetness...

Not familiar with SW Solo. Was it too thick, or just didn’t level? I do use their paints often and have had good results on walls with Duration and Emerald. For trim I like the Behr premium...
