New Steam Shower in Castle Rock, Co
ACTION SHOWER PAN & STEAM SHOWER COMPANY is an A+ rated Tile Installer specializing in Steam showers and shower pan installation, repair and replacement.
This new steam shower installation/basement bathroom project features a 6x36 porcelain tile that is set in vertical pattern. The grout joints are staggered to mimic a random pattern much like a hardwood floor pattern.
The wallboard selected for the shower walls and ceiling is GO BOARD a 1/2" foam board that is fully waterproof from front to back and throughout. Go Board has become one of the leading tile backer boards in the industry today!
The shower pan itself is cement poured and is waterproofed with Schluter-Kerdi membrane. I have been asked if the wallboard is already waterproofed why apply the liquid membrane on top.
This really is a good question and the answer depends on the tile backer board selected for the steam shower installation. In this case The manufacturer requires additional covering for steam showers. Why? Because steam showers not only have to be waterproofed as typical of most showers but also has to be vapor proofed to prevent structural damage from occurring.
Come back for part 2 of this new steam shower and bathroom floor tile installation project. Hopefully the shower doors will be in so that we can show you the finished bathroom.
The porcelain tile that has been installed has been purchased from Floor & Decor along with the Mapei UltraColor FA grout and metal tile edges. A majority of our clients will buy their tile at these tile suppliers who have really cornered a good deal of business by being well stocked and offering a wide variety of selections at very competitive pricing.
