My superintendent is in the process of installing one of these. Iy is 3 separate pieces. The problem I have is, the tiles have been leaking water for quite some time, and when one of the tiles was pulled off , there was all this old black crap that fell out from behind.He wants to put the tub surround directly over the old mess. Is this a health problem, as in, isn't this probably mold that should be removed first? and isn't the wood behind likely to be rotted out and damp?

Sounds like a tragedy about to happen.

To bad your not in the NYC area as there are lawyers here who can get you compensated for this type of condition that is about to happen once the walls are put on and the mold is not taken care of PROPERLY by someone trained in this area
