My 41 year old shower pan is leaking. Behind the tiles are lath and mortar. I would very much like to only replace the bottom three rows of tiles after new shower pan is installed using a contrasting tile. (The old ones can not be matched) How do I get a clean cut on the existing tiles? And what is the best product to use for pan replacement? Any “alerts” or “be careful ofs”? Thanks
They have been making a vinyl shower pan material called Chloralay (not sure of the spelling) for appx 25 yrs. It is much easier to work than a lead pan and will last as long or longer. With either material you need to make sure that their are no nails or screws sticking out (or anything else that could cut into the material).
