The Shower Stall Floor (1 of 3)

This is the first in our instructional blog series.  This series is designed to provide helpful tips and instruction for our up-and-coming contractor clients and DIY homeowners to explain how Kitchen and bathroom remodeling jobs are done right and create interaction between these two groups and our more established, experienced contractors.

If you’re a member of this latter group, you may not get much in the way of tips from these posts, at the same time we encourage you to show off your skills with tips and techniques of your own.  Just put your tips in the comments section or call our showroom.  We may just feature you and your comments in a future video to help increase your business.

The Shower Stall (part 1 of 3)

Today we are on one of our renovations, where we’re doing a master bathroom renovation.  For these first three posts we are going to be focusing on the shower stall and the floor in particular.

With shower floors you have two options:

A prefabricated base is a little bit more cost friendly option. It’s a pretty simple

application. The base comes already sloped.  It’s just a matter of:

  • Popping it in the whole.
  • Getting it screwed in.
  • Getting the drain assembly hooked up correctly.

From there you could choose either a pre-fabricated wall or a tile wall.

Prefabricated bases will come in a few different materials.

  • Acrylic
  • Fiber glass
  • Cast iron.

A Tile floor is a little bit more costly and is a much more involved process with

material and labor.


This particular renovation is actually getting a tiled floor and we’re going to show the steps of that process throughout these next blog posts.

Once we’ve finished up with the demo, we’ll come back with our second post, with our curb in place and ready for our vinyl pine liner.
