is a shower installation contractor with 40 years of extensive experience in custom shower, bathroom, and tile installation.
Shower tile installation features a very affordable ceramic tile that looks like marble. I was very impressed with this tile selection.
The subway tile is a classic design that never is out of date.
Tony replaced our shower pan and completely redid our entire shower. He did an absolutely wonderful job. He’s very neat and professional and we couldn’t be happier with the work that he did for us. He gave us regular updates on his progress and finished in a timely manner. He even identified an issue we had with the tile on our stairs and he helped us repair that as well. We are truly happy with the work that he did and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his services.

Thank you, Terry, it was a great experience working for you and Derek
This shower project located in the Boulder, Colorado 80310 neighborhood began when the homeowners detected water dripping to the downstairs bathroom ceiling. Since they were considering putting their home on the market and they could not match the existing shower tile they decided to update their shower and install a new leak-proof cement poured shower pan.
The shower pan is cement poured and the waterproof liner is Schluter-Kerdi
In today's home improvement market place, it is becoming harder and harder to purchase a tile that is manufactured with a finishing trim.
Most tiles are now imported. The tile edge needs to be finished in a way that compliments the tile installation.
In this shower example, the edges of the tile were painted with a sealer colorant. Sealant is manufactured by Custom Building Products and sold at the local Home Depot

Now that the tile has had time to dry the shower tile and grout joints are cleaned to allow for and even application of grout.
The tile joint that runs along the top of the shower curb will be covered when I reinstall the shower doors.
It is important to use the best grout for the job and I prefer to use Mapei's Ultra for all of my tile installations. It is a grout that will not shrink, this grout does not need to be sealed and is colorfast.
The shower pan is being removed with a hammer drill. Although this pan was cement poured the pan liner failed due to faulty installation.
This shower is a secondary shower in the residence and has not been in use for a long time. Water has dried off
The walls of the shower are removed to the studs. The shower pan is removed to the sub-floor. The old shower drain is also removed and replaced by a new Schluter/Kerdi shower drain.
With the wallboard up and the new Schluter shower drain installed the shower pan is cement poured using dry pack cement.
Once the cement cures for at least 72 hours the Schluter/Kerdi membrane is installed. Next the shower pan is filled with water and inspected for any leaks.
After the shower pan is tested and inspected the tile installation can begin. A bridge is set so that the bottom roll tile can be installed after the shower pan is tiled.
After the wall tile is installed the shower pan tile can be set with the bottom roll wall tile is cut and set into place. The shower curb is last to be tiled.
