Welcome, Don.

If you're in the tile trades it'll help to put some information into your User Profile so folks can see who you are and what you do and where you do it and that sorta thing, eh? Might even wanna start a thread of introduction if you plan to stay with us for a while.

I would have walked away and not did it.
When that shower leaks the last guy that touched it gets the blame.

Ps...see the request from CX. Im assuming your in the Rochester area from your username?

I don't recall making any negative comments, but since you asked I would not have run the greenboard back into the tiled area.

Not sure what that comment has to do with the the tub repair job.

Evan. I understand what your saying. It was a favor my neighbor who's a close friend also. There are tenants living in there so it had to be a quick repair job for now. A gut would take a few days. The green board issue it that I couldn't extend the cement board further there would be no place to nail it. I can't place a beam there without ripping down the wall. If it ends up leaking which it will eventually from the builders crap work that's a story for another day. I'm from Staten Island ny

I'm not a pro but if it were me I would have at least inspected the area behind (if necessary with an inspection camera), looked at the damage (if any) and reported it to the owner before closing it up.

I have a shower remodel thread up in the advice forum where the builder never water proofed the shower and the leaks form the corners of the tub has caused a significant portion of the floor and some of the studs to rot. I'm currently in the process of replacing the affected studs and flooring.

The neighbor of a friend of mine in SD experienced a similar thing. When the problem showed up there was a damp patch forming on the exterior of the home (here most homes have stucco as siding). When the issue was investigated it turns out that something similar to your problem had occurred - during construction a screw had nicked the water piping. It had been leaking steadily for years and by the time they discovered it it was a mess. The whole bathroom and to be demolished and reconstructed - there was mold everywhere.

In my case I have been lucky - the damage is limited and virtually no mold.

Pretty sure it's not 'shopped. There are all kinds of similar pictures from the hotels near the Olympics.

I second the photoshop.
Even the Russian government,who can make ICBM's but cant make a refrigerator work for more than five minutes, wouldnt do that in a shower.

BTW...they messed up the checker pattern.

Eric,

We see those often in condo's and highrises as the exhaust vent for the shower / bathroom. The wind passing the building, along with the building's natural chimney effect makes for a cost free exhaust system.

I'm thinking that is an AO or Dal 4 1/4" along with bullnose trim. Even the ceramic soap dish is the exact same profile we can buy in the States.

Very typical looking American bathroom, don't think that shower is in Russia.

Here is a bathroom from Sochi- the tile work looks ok

There's a starters tree (think drag racing) just out of the picture in front of the two heads....It helps keep the competitive juices flowing while waiting around in Sochi for your event.
