Stud Wall Mishap By Cowboy Builder


Postby neil72 » Wed Oct 02, 2013 8:49 am

Can anybody help, my sister got a.builder into to do her bathroom, he built a stud wall and passed the shower pipes vertically from the roof. The plaster boards and the tiling were completes but have found out that he did not secure pipes to wall, so that when we have attempted to put the shower on, it moves in and out the whole shower tape moves, any ideas how to sort this out without taking the plaster board and tiles off? Thanks

Simply Build It

the only way I can think of, is drilling a 8mm hole in the studding, on the opposite side of the tiles if you can, and filling it with expanding foam, It will stop any pipes moving once set

It is worth going back to the builder to query what he did. If the work wasn't done correctly you can insist they put it right.
