The project for today was removal of the glue at the tub surround. It was cracked in many places. It had to be replaced. Behind it though was a truckload of glue that was basically just squirted on in an S shape without being trowelled. The result was large gaps where the surround plastic was bulging away from the wall, creating ample opportunity for someone to lean on it and crack it. In some places, the surround was glued in place a good quarter inch (0.7cm) away from the wall.
