Greetings all. About 3 years ago we noticed our tile wall in the shower was a bit on the soft side. We removed the tile and found that water had been leaking and got into the drywall. This was only about a foot and a half off the floor and the length of the wall. So we removed the tile, put in some new green board, and re-tiled the wall.
Yesterday when cleaning, I noticed the wall was misshaped. 1 Tile pushed all the way through, and the lower corner (that we replaced earlier) looked like maybe a ball was thrown into the wall. Needless to say we aren't using the shower any longer.
We plan to remove the tile, remove the drywall, kill off all the mold we find, and replace the drywall
I have 2 questions. 1. Is there something I may not have done with sealing the grout that would cause moisture to leak through the tile and cause this problem again? I only sealed it once, maybe I needed to do it again.
2. Is there something I can replace the tile with? I am really tired of rebuilding this wall and want to know if there is something easier like an enclosure, or maybe different (larger) tile. The tile we have now are I believe 4" square.
