We bought a 10 year old home about 9 months ago, and have recently discovered that the subfloor in the master bath is rotting/moldy. There was only one or two cracked tiles when it was inspected before we purchased it, so we didn't think anything about it. Now, it's obvious that the shower is/has been leaking, and there are several wobbly, cracked tiles. We have resealed the shower (don't know if that's fixed the leak completely). We inspected the floor in the crawl space and now know the rot is spreading. Our shower is a big walk in one with a seat, not tile. Can we replace the subfloor from the crawl space underneath the shower, and then remove the tile/subfloor from the top to replace it? We don't know if the whole floor needs replacing, and if it can be done without removing the shower, jetted tub, cabinets, etc. It is going to be a big project, we just need some direction! HELP!
