INSULATION - We will insulate (if necessary) the walls and ceiling to make sure that your new shower will retain the heat.
PLUMBING - ELECTRICAL The next steps to be taken. The steam unit must have a dedicated 240v line to power the unit and an exhaust fan will need to be installed and vented outside. The new shower drain most often needs to be moved to compensate for the shower bench. The shower valves and plumbing are installed.

ABOUT A STEAM SHOWER INSTALLATION
SOME THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND -
Stress relief in the form of a steam shower can be a very soothing and healthful experience. As a result, numerous people have created a budget for steam shower installation when renovating their bathrooms.
WHAT STEAM UNIT SHOULD I PURCHASE? - When making your selection, do your homework. Some who have invested in a bathroom renovation have made the mistake of purchasing an inferior steam unit, only to have the steam shower not be available until the unit can be repaired. It may be possible to fix the problem. However, finding the right people to service your unit is another matter. Some Steam Generator Options to consider - THERMASOL - STEAMIST
WILL A WINDOW WORK IN A STEAM SHOWER? - Yes, it is possible. As long as your window is a double-pane window. Most newer homes do have double pane. No heat out and no cold in.
IS INSULATION OF THE STEAM SHOWER NECESSARY? - The answer is yes, especially when the walls or ceilings have exterior walls. Insulation ensures that the heat is kept in the shower and prevents it from escaping outside or allowing a chill to creep in.
WHAT ABOUT A SMALL SHOWER, CAN A BENCH BE BUILT? - To relax in the steamer, you have to sit down. Therefore, there are several options for creating a corner seat. Another option is purchasing a folding seat that can be mounted on the wall so as to save space. Or just use a teak bench that can be placed in the shower when using the steam option.
A completely custom steam shower is an amazing addition to your home that includes a raised shower bench, handheld showerhead, and recessed shower niche.
With expert porcelain tile installation, custom steam showers are built and waterproofed to last.
With nearly forty years of experience and great references, we can provide you with the most effective and efficient steam showers available.
For a custom steam shower installation, we remove all existing walls and tile from the base to the studs.
A steam shower unit can be installed in an adjacent closet close to the shower area or you can build a bench to hold the steam unit inside the shower.
To cover the shower in this case, a tile-backer board that is a cement board has been used.
In order to ensure that the steam shower is adequately protected, a Schluter Kerdi waterproof barrier is applied to ALL areas of the steam shower.
A thinset slurry is applied to the underlayment of the durrock before the cement pour is applied, and will serve to bond the cement for the new Schluter shower pan.
For greater control and to ensure proper drainage flow to the shower drain, the cement-filled pans are generally troweled with dry pack mud at a ratio of 1/4" per ft.
After we install the Schluter shower pans directly on the shower floor, we have them filled with water and tested for leaks.
The Schluter/Kerdi shower membrane is installed, and the tile is set directly on the membrane.
When installing tiles, the installer usually begins with the walls and ceiling before putting the tile on the shower pan, in order to let the cement cure properly.
Part of the design of this steam shower is the custom raised bench that houses a steam unit and has a recessed shampoo niche for storing soap and shampoo bottles.
TILE INSTALLATION for STEAM ROOMS & STEAM SHOWERS
All kinds of tiles are suitable for the steam room and steam shower installation, yet there are differences between the heat efficiency of each tile type based on the size of the steam shower/room and the steam generator that will be installed for your bathroom installation project.
Among the best heat-retaining tiles that are non-porous is a quality porcelain tile followed by ceramic and glass tiles. Natural stone can be installed as well but will require more maintenance, in particular sealing it every year or two depending on how often it is used. The issue with natural stone is mold growth so regular upkeep is critical. However, for a large steam room or steam shower, it may be wiser to select a non-porous tile as mentioned.
Featured in the steam shower is a 12x24 porcelain wall tile installed with grout lines in straight lines. The ceiling and shower floor are tiled with natural stone tiles. Due to the small size of the steam shower, the use of stone tiles mostly on the ceiling and floor has little effect on the efficiency of the steam generator, whereas a larger unit would have been adversely affected.
No matter what option you choose for your steam room or steam shower installation, Action Shower Pan & Steam Shower Company will install tile with attention to all surfaces and details. All of our steam room & shower installations are carried out by a tile installation and remodeling expert with more than 40 years of experience installing tiles.
