Tile Shower - Overview
No Ordinary Shower!
Bathrooms are one of the primary focuses of today’s building and remodeling projects. As a result, tiled showers, with their aesthetic and hygienic benefits, are more popular than ever.
Consider the benefits!
Tiled showers are luxurious and beautiful. A plethora of tile colors, designs, and shapes provides endless possibilities and enhances the aesthetics of the entire bathroom. Tiled showers also allow for flexibility when installing the latest features, such as benches, niches, windows, multiple shower heads, and steam units.
Contrary to popular belief, tile and grout joints (even sealed grout joints) are not waterproof. Moisture that penetrates these areas and collects in the wall cavities or floor structure is the primary cause of mold and leaks. In order to create a tiled shower that will last a lifetime, a waterproofing system is needed beneath the tile covering.
The Schluter-Shower System, a complete, easy-to-install waterproofing system for maintenance-free tiled showers, helps ensure success by eliminating the risk of failures due to vapor and/or water penetration. Unlike other waterproofing systems, the Schluter-Shower System creates a watertight layer at the top of the assembly rather than below it. Once tiles are installed over the Schluter-Shower System, a hygienic, durable tiled shower is the result.
