my house was built in 1972 and i have a standing tile shower. the pan needs replacing. i have gotten many bids to replace the whole shower because it does not have green rock and cement supports. my insurance adjuster will only allow for 2ft of tile to be removed to replace pan. should i go for a total replacement or let them just replace the tile the insurance co. agrees to? i don't want to have to do this again in a couple of years. thank you very much.
At almost 30 years, I would replace the whole shower and @#%@&*#@ all the insurance companies. If replaced properly you should not have to worry about the shower for another 30 years. Also have them raise the shower head (pet peeve) while the whole thing is apart. Take what little they give you and put it toward the new shower.........
