Water damaged bathroom

November 1, 2009

The bathroom at this house was having a problem with condensation on the walls and ceiling due to poor ventilation. The owners also wanted a heat lamp outside of the shower for comfort. There is a window in this bathroom, however to open it requires stepping across the jacuzzi tub.

The owners were also ready for a color change for the room and cabinets. They did not like the gold finish of the fixtures or the water damaged mirror wich runs the length of the vanity.

The first step in this project was to install an exhaust fan and heat lamp in the ceiling.

Next I cut a hole in the drywall behind the tub. I crawled through the hole to change the tub spout.

I patched the access hole and the areas where the water had damaged the drywall.

The ceiling color was 1/2 of the wall color. The cabinets were an accent color.

To address the water damage at the base of the mirror and to change the color of the metal mirror support I used a special primer to bond to the glass. Once primed, I painted the metal and the bottom of the mirror silver. I also painted the two light fixtures silver to match.

With the painting complete I replaced the bathroom sinks and faucets for a new finish.

The last job before replacing the hardware was to grout and seal the shower and glass block walls.
