Today, we started a master bathroom remodel for Terri & JT Waite. We were referred to them by their friends - our existing clients. We will be removing all the current tiles, vanity, the mirrors, enlarging the shower, installing a new bathtub, new vanity with granite tops along with beaitiful new tiles & plumbing fixtures. We will also be installing warm wires throughout the main floors of the bathroom.
Here's a picture of the tear-out.

Today, we're over at the Waite's - we will be installingthe rough plumbing for the shower that will include two showerheads, one hand-held with a slide bar and 3-body sprays. We will also be installing a brand-new air-jetted bathtub. We will be pouring the shower floor, installing warm wires on the main floor, and pro-sealing over the warm wire. We will be ready for tile installation for tomorrow morning.
This is what the bathroom looked like when we started the work today:

Sometimes, problems occur in a remodeling project. Over at the Waite's project, during the installation of the drywall, a screw went into one of the water lines. Mr. Waite woke up at 1AM to go to the bathroom and heard water dripping and found out that water was leaking through the ceiling on the first floor all the way to the basement. He called the owner of JW Construction & Design at 1:09 AM. Mr Waite lives in Downers Grove, IL and Jay, Willans, the owner of JW Construction & Design, in Naperville. By 1:25 AM, Jay arrived at Mr. Waite's front door, and oversaw all the damage that was created by the water damage.
The water was shut off, holes were put in the drywall to release the water in the ceiling & walls. Water remained shut off until 7AM and water was shortly turned back on once the crew arrived at 7AM at the Waite's residence and fixed the hole in the copper waterline.
Here are a few water damage pics from the basement & dining room, which had to be repainted to repair the water damage:

As of today's date, all the drywall that was removed from the water damage has been installed and we're currently in the process of priming all of the new drywall as we have our crew tiling the master bathroom. Here's a pic of the bathroom remodel in-progress:
Stay tuned in as we get close to finishing the Waite's master bath remodel.

The Waites' bathroom has come a long way. The shower has been tiled in beautiful travertine with a stone mosaic border. Top of the line water features, including two showerheads, one hand-held with a slide bar and 3-body sprays have been installed. Here are a couple of pics of the shower:
