Should I be retiling the apartment shower after two years?

No, I don't think so.

However, that is exactly what I will be doing (once I have ensured it is dry, mould-free and painted the wall with something to stop moisture getting into it).

We first noticed something was seriously wrong when we went to clean the apartment during a long stay and noticed the tiles were coming away from the wall. Now, we have had a chance to pull the tiles off, we can see why- water has obviously been getting behind the tiles and allowed mould to grow, which has been feeding off the tile adhesive and multiplying which has pushed the tiles away from the wall.

Hmmm, serves us right for employing a muppet in the first place... if you want a job doing right do it yourself!

Hopefully it will be done in time for the guests who are due on Wednesday!
