There comes a time in life when the things in your bathroom start to look old, worn and outdated, and bathtubs are no different. There may be rust in the drain of your tub or around it, you may think the drain area is giving your bathroom a cheap, broken-down look, or you may be changing your washroom decor and want to spruce everything up.

Nothing lasts forever, and the same is true of your concrete floor or slab. Concrete may be a very durable material, but even concrete is prone to cracks and leaking. The most common problems occur where the floor meets the joint of the wall.

Top of the line routers are fine, but that high-quality router comes out to nothing if you do not have some common router bit types that are good enough to create a nice, clean cut. The router is the mechanical means to an end, the engine and gears that turn the bit.
