Bathrooms makeover: designers, contractors, company long island

we gut the bathroom down to the studs & subfloor. If there is any damage to either, we replace it now. On this job, we were reconfiguring the fixtures so we had to relocate all the rough plumbing. We ran new hot & cold water lines with ¾” pex, 2” pvc for the tub, shower, & sink, and finally 3” pvc for the toilet. Next was adding a new Panasoninc Whisper Quiet heat / exhaust fan. This unit required a dedicated 20 amp circuit so we snaked a 12/2 wire in to the garage where the main panel was. The exterior walls got R-15 kraft faced fiberglass insulation, while the ceiling got
R-30. Since the walls were being tiled full height, we closed the entire bathroom up with ½” Durock cement boards & ½” moisture resistant sheetrock on the ceiling. The ceiling received 3 coats of compound & was sanded ready for the painter. Travertine was choosen for the finish product & installed on a ¾” bed of mudd for the floor & white thinset on the walls. The next day we sealed the tile & 2 days later we grouted everything. The painter came in after that was completed to finish the ceiling & paint all the woodwork with Benjamin Moore semi-gloss paint. Installing the fixtures was all that’s left. The shower trims by Hans Grohe, the toilet by Toto, the faucets by Hans Grohe, with all the accessories by Hans Grohe also.
