Question DetailsAsked on 9/21/2011

I need to find someone reliable and experienced to work on my bathroom. I would like to keep the existing layout, but remove the tub.

My home was built in 1963 and the bathroom did not have a shower, so I put up a hand held one that could hang from the wall. Unfortunately, the water has made the wall start to develop mold, even though I painted with water proof paint. Now I think the water is building up behind and underneath the tub area cause the floor is also turning blackish and bubbling up. I would like to remove the tub and make the area a walk in shower with seat. The original layout will stay the same and the floor be replaced, as well as, the wall mentioned above. I don't have a big budget to fix this, but need to do something before I get sick from the mold. HELP

According to the recently adopted " E P A " LEAD Renovation and Remodeling LAWS , effective March 2010 ,In any Home constructed before 1978 , Any Homeowner can do what ever he wants to his home . BUT, when it comes to using a " Contractor " That Contractor can only , LEGALLY REMOVE , -6-sf of wall surface , without being required , by Law , subject to fine of $ 32,000.00 per day.The contractor is supposed to be EPA Certified and to Treat the Entire Work Area as a " LEAD Containmenated " Work zone and perform material removal tasks as mandated in the EPA Code !

By LAW , ANYONE You HIRE , must conform to these rules.

Family and friends working unpaid , are Exempt providing there is NO PAY !

Water Proof Paint Only encourages MOLD to grow if it is allready present while MOLD has trouble existing on Oil Base Paint !

Your Best solution,would be , for YOU personally , put on a Good Respirator mask, and demolish all of the bath walls & ceilings you can , leave the floor for the professionals

and then seek bids for the restoration .

You will get more even and competitve bids, if you create the replacement specs yourself,products ,brands, sizes ,sources etc , , handing the specs to each bidder thus creating a level playing field for all bidders and simplyfying the process
