I have a client with a second floor bathroom entirely finished in custom cut Carrera marble; floors, walls, ceilings. I discovered a slow leaking condition which is caused by the lack of waterproofing directly outside the shower extending to the area in front of and below the lavatories. (approximately 6 ft. by 3 ft.). The owner is adamant about retaining the stone. The marble floor cannot be matched due to color, quality and size. Is there a method for top down waterproofing without removing the floor stones?
