    If encapsulation is good enough for asbestos, it's good enough for you and your scum

    Well lets all hope you had a vapor barrier installed lol. As long as your existing tub was in decent shape you're ok. I mean if you had water damage your fucked. On the flip side fuck em if you are selling :depressed:

    it is not like flipping after mikes jiz.

    Just had it done on a place of mine. 5yrs if your lucky. They do not touch the walls. If you have shitty rotting walls not a savoir. Rip it all out and start a fresh

    It's the only option for a lot of families with only one place to bathe but I was showering at my neighbor's house when I gutted my bathroom.

    Not if you plan it right, my last house had 1 1/2 baths so we only had the one tub, I gutted everything else then after everyone showered the next morning I ripped the old tub out and installed the new one, we were only w/o a tub for a few hours.

    Then it's baths for a few days if you're doing tiles, shower the same day if you're doing a snap in tub surround.

    You could have a delay if you found water damage once you rip the old tub out, but generally it's easily done.
