We have a 1950's home w/ original tub and tiled surround wall that go all the way around the entire room. We had to upgrade our fixture and went from a hot and cold faucet to the single one lever unit. So now, of course we have a few patched holes and need expert advice on how to remove those areas and replace with new tiles. We are worried during the process that other tiles may crack thus leading to a complete redo which is NOT a possibility. :-( What is the best way to remove and replace these tiles (what products do we use for behind the tiles, to adhere, etc.) Has anyone done this and had the cracking domino effect happen? Also, to top it off, my hubby dropped the handheld showerhead and it hit and broke the handle off the soap dish in the wall so we'll need to replace that also if we can find one the correct size. Please help as we are not very experienced DIY'ers and appreciate any info you can give. Does anyone know an experienced tile repair person in the Metro Detroit area? Some people have said we should put a piece of metal around the area but I think that would look terrible and it won't help with the soap holder situation. Looking forward to any help.
