White Subway Tile Repair and Upgrade in Temecula,CA by Chad Deiter Company

Here at Chad Deiter Company we recently got a call from a homeowner that had some tile work done when he moved into his house. Our company did not do the original tile work but he was referred to us from a local tile store. So we took a look at it and came up with a plan of what we could to make this shower the way the homeowner wanted it to be. Below are the steps of what it took to get the job to finished.

Step 1. This involved cutting the existing grout joints and removing all the old tile and thin set all the way down to the cemented walls. This is a very tedious process but it has to be done to ensure that the new tile is flat.

Step 2. This was the tiling step. Chad Deiter Company went ahead and re-tiled a portion of the 3×6 sub way tile and the added a nicer 6×6 diagonal border at eye level.

The homeowner also had us re-tile the shower pan because the original was white and he wanted something a little easier maintenance wise.

Step 3. Finally all the tiling was complete we just had to grout everything up.

I wanted to do this write up because sometimes you feel that your stuck with what you have and think that it’s gonna be really expensive to spruce up your existing shower.  Honestly it is tricky but it can be done. Just look at the difference Chad Deiter Company made for this homeowners Master Shower in just a day and a half.
