Shower, Drywall and French Door Maintenance
A mission Viejo home needing re-grouting, cleaning and re-caulking in the master bathroom.
Drywall: Before and After
Wall damage was patched and repaired,then re-textured. The replacement baseboards are re-installed and new, ready for paint!
French Doors: Before and After
A couple of the rooms in the home had French style doors that were physically damaged. Many large and small holes, claw marks and deep scratches, loose hinges/hardware, as well. The doors had to be replaced. This involved cutting to fit, boring holes, mortising the hinges and repairing/aligning hardware.
Another Bathtub/Shower Enclosure
The same house. Working on The main Hallway Bathroom.
The corners of the tile, the frame of the glass tub/shower doors, and window sill and frame, tub spout, soap dish, plus the tile at the corners to the ceiling all had mold or missing grout and caulking and/or both. The damaged areas all had to be parged/cleaned completely out of mold, deteriorated caulking, and loose/dirty grout.
After the damaged areas are scrapped, and cleared free of old caulking, mold, loose grout and dirt, then is ready to be re-grouted and then caulked/sealed as necessary. It's very important to clear out molded areas, because the mold can shorten the life of the new caulking. While the whole process of fixing the tub/shower is labor intensive, the new caulking also takes about 8 hours to cure as well.
