Duplex Rental Property | Bathroom Floor Replacement | Charlottesville, Virginia

We received a call from the company that was replacing the sewer lines under the floor of a duplex rental property. We do a lot of work for this property owner. When we pulled the commode we discovered the flooring underneath was rotten around the drain.

When we checked the second rental unit of this duplex we discovered the flooring was also rotten around the drain.

Back at the first unit, the one with wallpaper, we pulled up the vinyl base and shoe moulding. Then we cut out a large section of the floor and added a 2"x8" floor joist to the middle support and floor joist closest to the wall.

At the second unit we perform almost the same procedure. You can see the new PVC sewer lines below the joists.

After the floor support repairs we laid down 1/2 inch pressure treated plywood for the flooring. We glued and screwed the flooring to the joists in both units.

We then added a layer of black tar paper (roofing felt) wall to wall as well as a layer of luan board is glued and screwed over the roof felt to the flooring below.

Floor leveler is used to patch the seams and screw heads. Here we see a new wall to wall wood floor that is smooth enough to cover with vinyl.

The first unit is prepared the same way and ready for vinyl too.

The first unit completed. New vinyl, baseboard and shoe moulding complete with a fresh coat of paint on the trim. The company doing the new sewer lines will drill the commode drain hole and attach a new flange to the sewer pipe.

The second unit is completed including a fresh coat of paint. The floor repairs are quite sound and will last. The property owner was out of town while we we're working on this project. Beams Painting coordinated with the sewer company and the tenants to complete these repairs which the property owner greatly appreciated.
