bathroom tub flooring nightmare help

We have had our bathroom gutted and redone. well the tub needed the mortar under it to keep from cracking / making noises so the contractor came back taking the tub out and putting the mortar under it.. Now tonight we noticed the flooring next to the tub is warped looking and u can knock on the floor sounds like concrete when it has raised and where its lower the wood sound it is laminate flooring on top of the new flooring put in... Why or how did he get it under the new floor and what can be done? Will he have to take the sink out toilet and put the lam up and the flooring to redo or?? so very stressed out on this all. took him almost 2 months to get it done then now 2 weeks later redoing the tub and Im worried when tomorrow i show him the floor that he just walks out.. he has been paid in full cause we thought it was all done

Help ;(

Your post is a little disjointed. What is the flooring next to the tub made of? tile, engineered wood etc Are you saying that you hear a hollow sound when you tap the floor? It would be very easy for the mortar to get under the old floor, when you push the tub down, the mortar get pushed in all directions. Pictures would help and a better description of damage would be good.

Laminate no mater what brand it is, never ever should have been used in any wet area!

Sorry, I can't figure out what you have, can you try to explain it more clearly?

If you actually have laminate flooring, that needs to go.
