Steam damage is a problem many homeowner’s find in their bathrooms. The owners of this Basking Ridge, NJ 07920 home called in our team to rectify the damages by installing new bathroom tiles, installing new sheetrock, and repainting.
The first bathroom’s problem was that years of hot showers had caused for a great amount steam damage on the ceiling. As you can see in the photo below the paint was beginning to wear; the steam was causing a bubbling effect
In order to prevent further damage ceramic tiles would be installed on the ceiling. A ceramic tile was chosen to match as closely as possible to the composite wall.
The tub was fully protected before the installation took place.
The new tile and grout were installed on the ceiling of the shower, ensuring that steam damage on the ceiling would no longer be an issue.
These Basking Ridge homeowners had more projects in store for Monk’s. After having Monk’s install new tiles in their upstairs bathroom they decided to have Monk’s fix up their downstairs bathroom as well. Like in the first bathroom, the downstairs bathroom was also suffering from steam damage. Our team at Monk’s would replace all of the damaged sheetrock, apply fresh paint, as well as install a new overhead fan and light to ensure that even with steam the air would be circulated and not cause the same kind of damage again.
The homeowners brought our team at Monk’s in to inspect the state of the walls in this bathroom and determine what could be done. After careful examination Monk’s determined that the paint was so far gone, after years of steam damage, that installing new sheetrock was the best option.
All damaged sheet rock was removed from the ceiling and the walls, leaving the lower half of the wall (the tiles) intact.
While the sheetrock was being replaced Monk’s took advantage of this time to install a new overhead fan and light fixture.
The new sheet rock was installed, the walls were taped, and spackled. The new overhead fan and light fixture helping to ensure that further steam damage will not cause great problems in this bathroom again.
After the new sheetrock was installed the walls were primed and painted for a crisp, new, finished look.
Another job well done by Monk’s! In only three days our team rectified the steam damage found in this Basking Ridge, NJ 07920 home and delivered improvements to leave the homeowners satisfied with two fresh looking rooms.
