    Hey guys,

    Had a minor leak in our kitchen ceiling, I know the culprit is the master tub, but need someone to come in, rip down the dampened drywall, fix the plumbing issue (pretty sure the overflow isn't hooked up, but it's hidden behind drywall), and repaint a significant piece of ceiling.

    Wondering if anyone has any recommendations of people who can do this? I'm anal about a good drywall and paint job so I don't just want joe-blow from down the street who does work on the side while collecting pogey.

    Thanks!

    The overflow would be hooked up, but its not uncommon to see them start to leak on fibreglass tubs after a years use. Some tubs being put in these homes have so much movement it moves the rubber gasket.

    I suggest you get a plumber in to fix the tub, they can be bastards. And once thats done, if you want to PM me i know an excellent, excellent drywall guy.

    It's a little out of my way to do for cash but if you want to put it thru a company pm me and I'll give you an approximate price.

    I'm not 100% sure how that works but I think it's only covered for a year after occupancy. I could be mistaken though.

    Is it a tub/shower? Or a free standing tub?
