Many times in a bathroom remodel, much of the focus is placed on the look of the space – choosing the perfect tile for the shower and all the right fittings to create a beautiful space that homeowners can enjoy relaxing in. However, there is one important step to a beautiful shower that might not be at the top of a homeowner’s mind that shouldn’t be overlooked – a waterproof system.
A great waterproof system is one of the first and most important steps in the process of creating a great shower space, as it helps protect the space from water damage and other related issues throughout the years. One of the industry’s leading suppliers of complete shower systems is Schluter. The Schluter-Shower System is a complete waterproofing system for tiled showers that creates a water-tight layer at the top of the assembly. This water-tight layer prevents water from penetrating through and collecting underneath the shower on the floor structure and in the wall cavities to prevent unsanitary mold and mildew from forming. Schluter’s complete waterproof system provides homeowners with confidences that their shower will remain waterproof and problem-free for the life of their home.
Consider the benefits waterproofing has to offer, both now and in the years to come. It is certainly a wise investment to make that will allow you to avoid costly repairs in the future. A great looking shower starts with a great waterproof system!
