Installation of a custom steam shower starts by removing the existing walls and shower pan so that only the studs and subfloor remain.
Adding a steam shower unit to the shower can be done by placing it in an adjacent closet or by building a shower bench to house it.
Our steam showers are custom built with the appropriate tile backer board such as wonder board cement board.
A Schluter/Kerdi membrane is applied to the entire steam shower in order to waterproof it.
Installing a Schluter shower drain and thinset slurry to install durrock cement board to the sub-floor before pouring the cement.
We trowel the cement poured pans using dry-pack mud, aiming to ensure proper drainage to the shower drain at the rate of 1/4" per ft.
Water is filled into the Schluter shower pan before the tile is laid onto the shower floor, so the pan can be tested for leaks.
Next, the tile is installed directly on the Schluter/Kerdi shower pan membrane and grouted.
Typically, shower pans are tiled last so that the cement cures completely. The tile installation starts with the walls and ceiling.
This steam shower features a custom bench that houses the steam unit, plus a small niche for shampoo and soap
TILE INSTALLATION for STEAM ROOMS & STEAM SHOWERS
Any kind of tile will work for a steam room or steam shower tile installation however, there are still variations in each of these tiles when it comes to the heat efficiency of the steam generator that will be installed in your bathroom shower installation project.
Ceramic and glass tiles are followed by porcelain tiles as the most efficient tiles that are non-porous and do a good job of retaining the heat that is generated. Installing natural stone requires more care, such as sealing it every year or two, depending on how often the steam unit is used. However, it may be wiser to select a non-porous tile for larger steam rooms or steam showers.
The steam shower featured is a 13x24 porcelain wall tile that is set horizontally with the grout lines matching in straight lines. The ceiling and shower floor are tiled with natural stone tiles. Because the steam shower is smaller than most showers the minimum use of stone tiles mainly on the ceiling does not affect the efficiency of the steam generator whereas a larger unit could be affected in a negative way.
No matter which steam room or steam shower installation update you choose, Action Shower Pan & Steam Shower Company will install your tile with careful attention to all surfaces and details.
