A picture might change my advice, but I'd probably rake it out before it cures and start over.

Welcome back, John. :)

I'd frame the raised part with regular lumber, and build the curb with concrete or a foam curb. Then I'd use a surface-applied waterproofing membrane throughout the entire...

You could just grout it and see what happens. Worst case scenario, you'd have to take out the grout and replace the tile.

Does the curtain fall on the tile outside the shower, or inside?

If inside, is the floor sloped at 1/4" per foot to the drain?

You could make a curb out of concrete, if you could figure out how...

Welcome back, Allison. :)

You run the risk of grout cracking if the tile is loose. I would use a punch and hammer and break the tile. It'll come out easy in pieces.

They usually set pretty...

That's assuming that the slope is done properly and directs water to the drain from the perimeter, with no dips or humps that cause a problem.

1. Either way will work. Functionally it makes no difference which goes first.

Yikes! :sick:

I think I'd bite the bullet and hire someone else to replace the floor tile.

Of course, that assumes that the shower is otherwise in good working order. We often find that...

I saw that, and thought it might be because the water lines were on the far right side of that wall, closest to the proposed location of the new closet.

If that's the case, they could be moved,...

Well, I just saw the cut piece there, so I'll change my advice, and my optometrist. :dunce:

Yeah, break it out as previously mentioned and replace it.

I'd put the shelf at the top and make an L-shaped piece for the bottom.

Actually I guess it would be two pieces at the bottom.

I'd deal directly with the tile distributor. That's who you made your deal with. He hired the installer.

Welcome to the forum, Bill. :)

If you've got loose tile, you have no choice but to remove them all.

After that, you can decide on your next move.

That is quite the conundrum. :scratch:

Is this just a GFCI, or a GFCI/Arc fault combo?

I've never heard of a vibration causing a fault, but maybe somewhere in that wall is a couple of bare...

Looks like you furrowed in for a short distance as well.

If it's really Keeshond, I don't know what to tell you. :)

John, we can always get one sent to you if you can't get it through the online store. I'll send a message to Dave and he'll contact you.

Thanks for your patience. :)

There's no rule or best practice about that. I would do at least 2-3", but you can do as much as you want.

Comparatively speaking, you're lucky. We've seen a lot worse on here.

I've knocked down several that were in use far less time than yours, and suffered much more damage.

Glad you found us. ...
