Sometimes it can be a difficult to waterproof around oddly shaped shower controls. This @gessi_northamericaofficial shower control comes with a waterproofing membrane so all I had to do was use a little kerdi flex at the penetrations and then apply this precut membrane. I love it when companies make it easy for the installer.
A fresh blank canvas, my favorite! I don’t think a lot of people understand the amount of planning and work that goes into a bathroom remodel to get to this point. From dust protection, humping countless loads of debris to the dumpster, fixing the 60 year old framing members, overseeing/scheduling the subcontractors, double/triple checking everything before closing the walls up, juggling client meetings to go over the countless choices/decisions and making sure everything is ordered on keep on schedule, just to name a few... Figured I give a little insight on why this white wall with an orange floor gets me excited...😂 Now it’s time for the fun stuff!
Ditra heat from @schlutersystemsna is one of the best floor heating systems out there, nor only does it provide heat to your floors but it also acts as an anti fracture membrane. I recommend this product to all my clients.
The Meck Brother’s Bathroom & Tile Team had a great couple of days at The Schluter Systems Innovation Workshop in Parsippany, NJ. We are excited that we got the opportunity to further our knowledge, learn many, many new ways to not only innovate your Bathrooms as well as All Tile Installations but more over Manage Moisture &PROTECT our client’s homes from possible leaks, water & mold.
We are excited to start implementing many newer technologies into our upcoming bathroom remodels.
Check out a few of the pictures from the past couple of days.
Here is a shower we just completed. We opted to use the @schlutersystemsna #kerdi shower kit along with the #ditraheat system for the floor. If you haven't tried this set up yet, we highly recommend it. Very easy to map out and install your heating cables.
I completed the shower in this bathroom, including the framing, water-proofing and tile work. The drain is centred with the mosaics flowering off of it. Corners are wrapped carrying on the veins, and the custom niche lines up with my grout lines 👍 Video at the end!
Got through setting most of the seam membrane yesterday. I spray with water & mix my mud wet, but it always feels like a drag race to get thinset on the wall and membrane pressed in before the backer board pulls the moisture out of the mud. Any advice???
Here’s the shower from our last Reno! Love the way it turned out with the river rock floor and the detail through these niches! We used @schlutersystemsna Kerdi shower tray and drain with a dry pack combo for the floor. Added a bench and there is a rain head and slide bar option for showering. More pics to come!
