Remodeling any room in your home is often a daunting task. You have to hire the right contractor and figure out exactly what you want. Your bathroom is also the most likely room to need to be remodeled. This is especially true of older homes that do not have an outside vent fan. This will cause steam to build up whenever you take a shower and can cause mold and mildew to form. Here are a some reasons you may need to hire a contractor to do a bathroom remodel in San Antonio.

Your Ceiling is Moldy

If your ceiling has started to mold, then it is definitely time to call a professional. Mold will develop if steam is allowed to build up for extended periods and can be hazardous to your health. To avoid mold in the first place use the vent fan if you have one. If not then open a window or door to let the steam out when you take a shower.

Your Walls Are Bowing

Again, this comes back to a lack of a vent fan, but over time steam can cause the board in your walls to expand and bow. This is most common on wood paneling that is used in a lot of older homes. As the panels absorb moisture, they expand, and then when they shrink back down, they do not go back where they belong. This will cause the walls to start to bow over time and can destroy your paneling.

Your Shower Is Leaning

If your tub has started to lean to one side, then this can be an indicator that there is rotten wood underneath it. If this is the case then you should call a contractor as soon as possible, you never know when it could fail.

When it comes to your bathroom one of the most common causes of issues is the lack of a vent fan. Newer homes will have this, but many older homes still do not. If you have your bathroom remodeled, then be sure to have one added.
