I have a leak through my ceiling from my ONLY bathroom with a shower in my house. Please help! I had a plumber come over to advise me on what I should do, and he looked at the shower/tub that has a curtain and said that it needs to be re-tiled. This is because there is a piece of wood around the lip of the tub rather than having the lip of tub connect directly to the tile. Hopefully, you can picture this. My house is really old, and when I bought the house, it looked as like they had painted over all the tile and tub, which is now peeling off. What are my options for fixing this? My plumber said that I will need to have someone re-tile the base of the shower where it meets the tub, but it will be hard to match the tile because it's so old. He said that caulking it is a temporary fix, and because this is my only shower, I want it done right. I also want it done quickly. Any feedback would be great! Thanks in advance!
