Solid Shower Surrounds
If you’re looking for an inexpensive and long-lasting shower system, look no further than a seamless, one-piece shower system, also known as a solid wall shower. These shower systems provide a timeless looking shower that looks as clean as it performs while also reducing maintenance at an affordable cost.
What are Solid Shower Systems?
A solid wall systems are installed using one piece shower surrounds. Depending on the size and make-up on your bathroom, these solid wall surrounds can be a one piece shower surround that is custom fitted to your bathroom or they can be solid wall surrounds which are sealed to a floor piece using waterproof caulk. Either method is leaps and bounds ahead of tiles showers or other similar materials with regards to durability, cleanliness, and water resistance.
Solid Wall Showers are Durable
Where some materials can crack or break apart over time, a solid wall shower won’t have this problem as frequently. Solid wall showers aren’t susceptible to the splitting and cracking issues that tile showers commonly see over time due to your house settling or the caulk between tiles breaking down. In fact, the largest complaint about tile showers is that each 4″ tile has about 16″ of caulk which creates the possibility of water leaks.
Maintenance for One Piece Shower Systems is Easier
Along the same lines of durability, maintenance is another huge selling point for a one piece shower system or a solid wall surround. With a tile shower, you will need to re-seal the tile nearly every year; and sometimes this means sealing in any stains which have set in the caulk between the tile. Additionally, any cracked tiles or cracks in the caulk waterproofing must be fixed right away to avoid leaking water and mold. For this reason, Maryland solid wall surrounds and one piece bath units provide a nearly maintenance free shower.
Low Cost Doesn’t Equal Cheap-Looking
Seamless shower systems save home-owners lots of money during a bathroom remodeling project. That said, just because one piece shower surrounds are inexpensive, that doesn’t mean these seamless showers are cheap-looking.
