Like so many home owners out there, there comes point in when you may be considering ways to add spark and life back in your home. Remodeling can help bring out the much-needed changes to your current living conditions. Putting your home on the market, selling and moving somewhere new may be one solution but why bother with all of the hassle? Adding just a few things to your home can help give it life and make it feel new again. Keep in mind something very important before you start your home remodel –Have Every Thing On Hand First.
Large items such as the vanity tops and special order tiles can take several weeks to arrive, so be patient. Before you take a sledge-hammer to your bathroom, make sure everything you’re going to need — including the vanity, plumbing fixtures, any new lighting, the tub and the tile is on hand. You might get frustrated waiting around for products, but it’s better than tearing up your fixtures and having an unusable bathroom until they arrive. Plus, when your new products are on hand, you’ll know if you need to do extra work, such as moving the plumbing lines for the sink location or running new cable for your lights, before you rip up and then patch the walls.
Below is an example on one of Don Of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services recent corner shower tiling upgrades and a description of the work that was done. Enjoy!
So here’s what we did:
– Installation of ceramic tile.
– Partial installation of Backer Board.
– Dry Pack for the floor which consisted of a mixture of sand and Portland cement.
– Configuring sloping of the shower floor to ensure proper drainage.
– Installed 8×10 ceramic tile on all walls.
– Glass inlay installation.
– 12×12 sheet of 1 inch tile for the shower floor.
– Grouted tiles with sanded grout with polymer to give it strength and prevention of mold & mildew.
– Vinyl tile edging installed to the shower opening to it a clean and finished look.
If your thinking about building a shower, consider the design. Odd shaped designs take longer to tile due to the fact there are more measurements involved in order to get the tile to fit correctly. Plan accordingly in order to fit this into your project time line completion.
