Shower Pan Installation
When It’s Time For Installing A New Shower Pan
Water leakage into the space below the shower is the most important sign that you urgently need to install a new shower pan. Other signs also include:
- Presence of water damage on the ceiling below the bathroom.
- Mold growth or missing grout near the base of the shower.
- The age of your shower.
- Movement of the tray, resulting in new or unusual cracks or sloping in the shower floor.
Types Of Shower Pans We Install
Shower Pan Liner
A shower base, often referred to as a shower tray, is a pre-formed, ready-to-install floor that is installed at the bottom of a shower. These bases are made from a variety of materials, such as acrylic, fiberglass, metal, ceramic, or stone, and come in numerous shapes and sizes to complement any bathroom design. They are also often available with doors and installation hardware. Unlike a liner which is used under tile, a shower base is a finished surface that requires significantly less labor and time to install. Turning to professionals at KBC for installing a shower base guarantees a smooth and secure fit, proper drainage alignment, and a sealed connection between the base and the walls. Our team of specialists will be happy to help you determine the most suitable option based on your budget and the desired size of the shower.
Shower Base Installation
A shower pan liner is an essential component for any custom-tiled shower installation, acting as a waterproof barrier (membrane) between the subfloor and the tile. This pliable sheet is typically made from PVC or CPE (chlorinated polyethylene), ensuring that any water that seeps through the tile and grout is effectively captured and redirected to the drain. Professional installation of a shower pan liner is crucial for preventing leaks and water damage. Our installers meticulously fit the liner to fit the unique contours of your shower space, ensuring a perfect seal around the edges and the drain. When installed expertly, a shower pan liner provides a secure base that protects your property from moisture, giving you peace of mind along with the individual beauty of your tiled shower.
