Am I stuck with shouldering this or can I still go after the contractor? Water leaks from the upstairs shower into the kitchen on the first floor. This, after the bathroom was completely gutted and new plumbing, fixtures and tile installed. Problem is, the renovation was completed just over five years ago.

Other considerations: it is the very same leak we had BEFORE the renovation, so I'm suspicious about the supposedly "new" plumbing that was installed. Because this was the typical rocky contractor-homeowner relationship -- filled with missed deadlines, cost run-ups and nasty confrontations -- the likelihood of him making good on his own is slim.
Am I stuck with this or do I have legal or some other recourse? Thanks for any thoughts or advice.
