Two Installation Methods

We use two different methods for shower installation:
  1. Custom Mud Bed Shower with a Standard Pan Line

    This has been the standard for many years. It needs to be done properly so that the shower drain weepholes are free from any obstruction.

    The installation steps for the wood subfloor are as follows:

    • Lathe and tarpaper
    • Preslope
    • Shower pan liner
    • Mud bed.
  2.  

  3. Custom Mud Bed Shower with Liquid Waterproofing/ Sheet Membrane Water Proofing Product

    This is a newer method that we have adopted.

    The installation steps are as follows:

    • Lathe and tarpaper
    • Mud bed
    • Waterproofing method on top of the mud bed which is either liquid applied or a sheet membrane.
      This is our preferred method because it keeps water out of the mud bed and on top of the mud bed.
      Consequently the shower dries more quickly and is easier to clean.
