ABOUT A STEAM SHOWER INSTALLATION
SOME THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND -
It is good to come home from work and enjoy an evening of steam, relaxation, and bliss in order to relieve stress. There are more and more customers considering the installation of a steam shower in Arvada, Colorado
WHAT STEAM UNIT SHOULD I PURCHASE? - The time you take in selecting your steam shower generator is to your benefit. Make sure to do your research before making a choice. Many people purchase a lower-quality steam shower unit and can't get it fixed or replaced, which will result in a substantial loss of money well spent. If it can be fixed. And finding the right people to service your unit is a subject in itself. Some Steam Generator Options to consider - ELITE - THERMASOL - STEAMIST
WILL A WINDOW WORK IN A STEAM SHOWER? - Certainly. As long as your window is double-pane, it will not lose any heat, and it will not let in any cold. A lot of modern homes have double-paned windows.
IS INSULATION OF THE STEAM SHOWER NECESSARY? - Yes. In particular, if the walls or ceiling of the shower are exterior walls, insulation ensures that the heat from the shower does not escape outside and guards against the cold coming in from outside.
WHAT ABOUT A SMALL SHOWER, CAN A BENCH BE BUILT? - A corner seat is another solution you can think about. Or you can buy a folding seat to save space. After all, you need to sit down to relax while in the steamer.

Taking the walls down to the studs and sub-floor, custom steam shower installation starts with removing the existing walls and tile from the shower’s base.
You can install the steam shower units in an adjacent closet to the shower or you can build a bench to keep the steam unit inside the shower.
A tile backer board which resembles a cement board is used to cover the shower in this case.
Waterproof Schluter Kerdi membrane is applied to ALL areas of the steam shower in order to ensure sufficient protection for it.
A slurry of thinset is applied to the durrock underlayment prior to the application of the cement pour and will form a seal between the Schluter shower drain and the sub-slab of ceramic tile.
It is recommended that the cement poured pans are troweled with dry pack mud for greater control and to ensure a proper drainage system to the shower drain at a ratio of 1/4" per ft.
We have Schluter shower pans filled with water, before the tiles are directly installed to the shower floor, and tested for leaks.
After the Schluter/Kerdi shower is installed, the next step is to install the product directly to the tile and grout.
During the tile installation process, the tile installer usually begins with the walls and ceiling in preparation for the shower pan to be tiled last to allow for the cement to cure properly.
An integral part of this steam shower is the custom bench that houses the steam unit and has a recess which is made to accommodate soap and shampoo bottles.
TILE INSTALLATION for STEAM ROOMS & STEAM SHOWERS
All types of tiles will work for a steam room or steam shower and bathroom tile installation, but there are differences between them with regard to how they perform with retaining heat.
In terms of retaining heat efficiency, a quality porcelain tile that is non-porous and good at retaining heat is the most efficient tile (followed by a quality ceramic and glass tile)Also, with the tile installation of natural stone tiles, however, you must also invest in additional maintenance, such as sealing the stone every few years or every two years depending on the frequency with which the steam unit is utilized. Nevertheless, if you are considering installing a large steam room or steam shower, it might be better to choose a non-porous tile as discussed.
There are stone tiles installed in this steam shower on the ceiling and shower floor in addition to 12x24 porcelain tile installed on the shower walls. Since the steam shower is relatively small the use of the floor tile does not affect the efficiency of the steam generator to any negative means.
