Local Expert at Bath Planet Suggests Tips for Hiring a Bathroom Remodel St Augustine Contractor
The downloadable brochure provides everything homeowners need to know about hiring a contractor and even if they do not choose Bath Planet, they will be better informed to make a wise choice
For this reason, Bath Planet (http://bathroomremodelstaugustine.blogspot.com/) has provided a free, downloadable brochure with information to help homeowners make an informed decision. Even if they do not choose Bath Planet for their bathroom remodel project, the owner does not want to see the dishonest, shoddy contractor gain their business.
One bathroom remodel option that has gained popularity over the years is the acrylic bathtub and shower liners. Bathtub liners are fast, easy and affordable as opposed to complete bathroom remodeling, but they are only as good as the contractor who creates and installs them.
According to the local bathroom remodel specialist the most important factor to consider is the method used to create the bathtub liners. Only use companies that custom mold the tub and shower bases with heat, using the existing fixture as a form. Those who do not custom-form their bathtub liners cost less but use fillers such as foam to make them fit. This leaves the tub with gaps and uneven surfaces between the material and the old tub.
Although acrylic varies little between companies, installation methods and materials do. The bathroom remodel expert with Bath Planet suggests the following important factors to consider when choosing a company to install a new bath and shower liner:
Adhesive type used: Butyl tape, also known as butyl rubber, coupled with silicone adhesive is an absolute must. Foam strips, off-the-shelf adhesives and similar materials do not hold up over time.
Experience: A very specific skill set and knowledge base is necessary for a permanent, trouble-free bath and shower liner installation.
Waterproofing: Ask for the specifics! Tub liners must be installed with butyl rubber and drains and overflows which are generously waterproofed with silicone and vertical corners must also be properly waterproofed.
Finishing: Avoid companies that use T channel or detached strips to finish the edges. Rounded edges formed right to the walls give a clean, finished look that will not deteriorate over time.
Wall Type: Tub/shower surrounds are either one-piece or multi-piece. One-piece systems only work in bathrooms with 3 standard walls around the tub. Cathedral, arched or sloped ceilings require a customized, multi-piece system. When installed properly, the multi-piece shower surrounds are just as waterproof as one-piece systems and are not prone to horizontal cracking in the corners.
