What is a Solid Shower System?

August 6, 2019

Today, one of the most popular design choices in the bathroom remodeling world is the solid shower system. But what exactly is it? It’s a style of shower that involves using solid shower surrounds. Depending on the size of your bathroom these shower surrounds could be custom fitted to your bathroom walls or they could be sealed to the floor with waterproof caulk. What are the benefits of a solid shower system?

Tiling can be beautiful but over time it tends to crack. With a solid shower system, you won’t have to worry about cracking. Solid wall showers don’t split or crack like tiles do, and this is because of the differences in caulk. For each 4” tile there’s 16” of caulk, and all of this extra caulk creates the possibility of a leak. Something you don’t have to worry about with an acrylic solid shower system.

Little to No Maintenance

Tile showers need to be re-sealed pretty much every year, and that can be a real pain. Additionally you will also need to seal any stains in the caulk and repair/replace any cracked tiles. But when you install an acrylic solid shower system during your Maryland bathroom remodel, you needn’t worry about any of these problems. Acrylic shower systems don’t require yearly resealing and won’t crack. Choosing an acrylic shower surround for your MD bathroom remodel is a low-maintenance choice.

An Affordable Option

If you’ve ever looked into remodeling your MD bathroom, then you know it can get quite pricey. But one way to save some money is to go with an acrylic solid shower system. You don’t have to worry about compromising the looks of your bathroom just to save money either, as acrylic solid shower systems can accommodate all different design schemes. There are a variety of different styles and colors that you can choose from, we’re sure you can find something to your liking!
