Bathroom Renovation Contractor
Bathroom Renovation Crozet, Virginia
We are an experienced renovation and repair contractor. We have the experience you seek when choosing to renovate or repair your home. We have experience with storm, smoke, water and insect damage repairs. This is a small house in Crozet, Virginia one of my long time clients purchased. Replacement windows and vinyl siding make this a clean neat little property. No vent pipes in the roof are a red flag.
Note: Missing Vent Pipes
After we removed the tub and shower walls we discovered rotten sub flooring and rotten floor supports. 2x4s in floor structure was another red flag. We also discovered metal siding (middle of picture) inside the wall and metal beams below the wall base.

After we removed the shower stalls plastic wall-coating and the surface luan (thin wood wall covering) on the walls we discovered a "crank out" type window and two upper vents that look like those in a vacation type trailer. Red Flags all over the place.
Red Flags all over the place.
The rotten floor and floor joists are exposed from the old tub area. Below the wall base is a metal beam resting on a block foundation. Now we know this house is made from at least one trailer, possibly three.
The old tub area.
We discovered that no floor supports for the flooring. The lack of clearance mandates 2x4s for floor joists. The commode flange and pipe were not attached to the floor system other than the floor flange. The PVC sewer pipe from the commode was duct taped to an old sewer pipe which in turn was fastened to another PVC pipe running to the sewer system. The water feed lines were made up of copper, PVC, and steel line combinations simply taped together in some places and laying in the crawl space. The dirt floor crawlspace was littered with refuse which we removed and replaced with a 6ply moisture barrier.
Here we look back towards the door. Note the old drain system and water feed lines. Also note the right side where you can see an air duct that blew into the crawl space because there was no opening in the previous floor space.
The second duct opened into the middle of the room. The wall n the right was framed with 2x4s but had an uneven “jog” in the wall. We shimmed half of the wall up to level. We reframed the walls and installed insulation and sheetrock. This picture shows the total trailer portion of the house.

Note the shims leveling the left wall. New pressure treated 2x4 flooring system has been installed in the limited space between metal cross members and base of wall. The new drain and water system is shown installed. A vent pipe valve was installed under the sink in the vanity to allow proper drainage. (The old system had no vent) A 3/4 “pressure treated subflooring was laid over the floor joists. We also extended the unconnected air duct vent to the window at the end of the room.
