It could be an issue from the deck. Often people don't flash the ledger board or pitch the deck
away from the house. Water gets in behind it and rots the wall and runs into the basement. You

I'm curious about if they just patched the wall after pulling wires for that receptacle. I
notice it's horizontal, are all of them in your unit like that?
Posted in thread: Is it Possible to Cut a Tile Like This - Pic Attached on 11-11-2015 at 09:44 PM
You can cut that out but the problem will always be that you're not left with enough meat on
the tile. If it doesn't break when you're cutting it, it will likely snap when you're
installing it. That b...

the new paint meets the old to get a smooth transition. I like 1500 grit wet/dry. Use it with
some water, ...

It looks like the tile and those fixtures were painted. I think I can see the same color on the
wall tile just above the sink. If that's the case, you may need to strip and repaint the soap

The deck should already be pitched away from the house. If it is, I would just attach pt
plywood to the underside of the joists. Whatever you decide on you'll need to make sure it
supports the weight ...
