Small bathroom remodel -- does tile guy waterproof shower?

4 years ago

I had two bathrooms gutted and remodeled by a GC. I'm planning to act as GC for the third (hallway) bathroom. I am unsure about who does some of the tasks required.

I plan to hire a demo and hauling company, electrician, plumber, tile setter, cabinet builder for vanity, fabricator for countertop, and solar tube company for adding a solar tube in the ceiling.

Who frames the new shower -- do I need a framing company or carpenter for that?

Who waterproofs the shower (typically it is hot mop in my area) -- would this be the tile setter? or a waterproofing company?

The tile setter gave me a quote that includes demo, waterproofing, tile setting, and fabrication. He is licensed only for tile setting and has no employees (carries no worker's comp for employees).
