Our Tub and Shower Liner Process
November 9, 2017
A tub or shower liner is a simple, cost-effective way to completely transform the look of your bathroom on a budget. A full bathroom renovation can take weeks, and will cost you more than you’re comfortable with. However, the star aspect of a redone bathroom is the replacement of your tub or shower. Sometimes, all you need to revamp your bathroom is another shower or tub. A tub or shower liner can easily change the look of this appliance without ever having to start a serious renovation.
Proper tub and shower liner installation is a must, though. We’re here to share with you the correct process of installing a tub or shower liner.
What Could Go Wrong?
Even the slightest misstep during a shower liner installation can cause disastrous results. One of the most common problems is water seeping underneath of the liner over time. This usually occurs because of poor installation or poor fit. A liner must be precisely cut by a professional, and adhered perfectly to the tub or shower. There is no leeway when installing a liner. Proper fit ensures no water damage, and precise measuring tailors your liner perfectly to the shape of your tub or shower.
What Needs to be Done?
Liners must be installed over an extremely clean tub. It must be totally free of soap scum, oil, buildup, or other common tub imperfections. If your tub has been reglazed, you might want to consider chemically stripping away that layer. It will help the adhesive to be more effective, thus leading to a better fit, keeping water out. A combination of butyl tape, silicone adhesive, and proper molding is the only way to ensure success.
The Importance of Great Installation
A professional shower liner installation process is the key to success. Your liner will serve you for years to come, as long as it is properly installed. A liner needs to be cut by a craftsman, and requires specific measurements. Installing a liner yourself may seem simple, but it can lead to disastrous consequences. Professional manpower is needed to ensure that the installation goes smoothly; otherwise, you could run into nasty problems down the line.
