Looking for Kerdi installer in Maryland

Hi,

I've just recently discovered 9 year old shower (in 9 year old home) in home beginning to fall apart. Grout began to crack and bottom tiles came loose to show mushy drywall behind the tile. I demoed the entire shower down to the mortar pan, and then I eventually broke up the mortar base as well. In the process of doing alot of reading here I was able to identify many things that seemed wrong from the start with this 'builder' shower. The pan seemed to have no slope at all and the PVC liner was cut in places and nailed all the way across the curbs. The entire shower tile was attached to regular greenboard.

After I removed the mortar base I noticed that the entire PVC liner also sat directly ontop of the plywood subfloor (second floor). There was noticeable water staining and swelling to the plywood underneath and a leak to the first floor.

Long story short, I had planned on doing a kerdi shower to replace this myself. Due to recent events, I need this shower replaced fairly quickly and am now looking for a professional who can at minimum reconstruct this shower back into a functioning unit.


Cliff Notes: Need a shower rebuilt in Maryland, preferrably Kerdi experience

Thanks
