So I'm not sure I'm doing this right (should I download and save the photos, and post them here directly?), but I stumbled across this on Facebook this evening and thought you guys should see it.

https://www.facebook.com/Firsthandco...0778905036505/

I'm not wrong in thinking that shower is going to leak like a WAG's diaphragm, am I? I don't see any waterproofing at all, and they've got screws all through--well, all of it. And that in a year or two they'll be able to harvest mushrooms off the wood used for that bench (once they drain all the rancid water away)? I could do a better job than that, and I'm not a professional advertising this as good work on Facebook.

Yes, you should.

No way to know anything at all about that photo at that stage of construction, Stacey. There may be a plan.

My opinion; worth price charged.

It's a slideshow, Cx--you have to click the little right-hand arrow.

I could be wrong and it's something like DensShield on the walls--I'm not familiar enough with all the various backers to know if it's a gray one or regular drywall or cement board--but it still looks like it wasn't screwed in/sealed properly to me.

Well, they waterproofed part of the bench, sorta, and it's got a nice door. What's not to love?

this one is pretty bad, i only got involved after the builder stripped it, it was a existing tile shower that the owners wanted to retile so the plan was to remove wall linings, take up floor tiles, re waterproof etc retile, turns out the walls had been leaking for years, there were 2 layers of tiles on the floor, (black tiles and under them white tiles) no indication it was leaking, luckily its on a slab or the floor would be gone as well ...now its a rebuild
