I'm about to do the same thing on the shower like this one and the bath in the other room. One thing I wanted to point out is that shower door. Whoever made mine cut the seal 2 inches short so moisture got in and did the same thing with the mildew / mold.Update #2: I am going to do the floor myself after all. The kicker was thinking about strangers parading in and out of my house during a pandemic.
Question: I'm going to put quarter-round down along the baseboard after the floor is installed. Currently there's no baseboard along the front of the shower stall (see photo). Do I need to put quarter-round there too? And if not, should I instead just caulk that one area?View attachment 24346
Congratulations!@slownsteady I believe they are vinyl. They came with a cork backing, if that helps. The contractors who saw them both said they don't need underlayment.
I completed the project today. Knocked a few firsts off my list with this one: vanity install, toilet remove/replace, flooring install, and use of a nail gun. For firsts I think I did a decent job, but next time I do this it will go even better. Thanks for your help, everyone!
Congrats on getting that done. I bet an odd smell or two disappeared? Ah, nothing like the smell of soaked rotted plywood in the morning! I wouldn't put too much stock in wax rings though, see my post # 2439 in the "What did you do today" thread. My wax ring was perfectly intact, just didn't do anything. After doing demo as a part time gig many years ago, I don't recall ever seeing a clean footprint under toilets.
