Shower Systems & Bath Waterproofing
At New Hope Kitchen and Bath our commitment to excellence extends beyond what you can see when the project has been completed. Using the best products and installing them correctly is the key to ensuring your bathroom remodeling project lasts for years to come. The timeless beauty of ceramic and stone tiles enhances the aesthetics of any bathroom. Tiled showers, steam showers, and bathtub surrounds are luxurious and elegant and add to the value of your home. Tiles are not inherently waterproof, however, and must be installed in conjunction with a waterproofing system that effectively manages moisture to protect moisture-sensitive building materials and control mold growth. Assemblies achieved using the Schluter® Shower System reduce total installation time and eliminate the risk of failures due to water and vapor penetration, thus preventing efflorescence and mold growth.
Schluter Sealed System VS. Traditional System
Tiled showers, steam showers, and bathtub surrounds are luxurious and elegant and add to the value of your home. With a reliable waterproofing system in place, a tiled bathroom provides the ultimate in practical as well as aesthetic appeal. There are two types of systems that are typically used in shower construction—the traditional shower system, or a water-in/water-out system, and a sealed system. To avoid the common challenges with the traditional water-in/water-out shower assemblies, Schluter®-Systems offers the Schluter®-Shower System. The Shower System is an integrated family of products that creates a “sealed system”. Check out the video above to explore both options for waterproofing a tiled shower to see how the Schluter®- Shower System eliminates leaks, reduces potential for efflorescence and mold growth in the system, and dramatically reduces installation time to ensure success and make shower installation easier than ever.
