A Tile Shower by Greenwood Home Services
This page features photos of a tile shower crafted by GHS. The original shower was improperly constructed and suffered severe water damage to the flooring and lower walls underneath the ceramic tile. The shower was less than 10 years old and was completely exhausted. It is a good idea to do some research when considering building a tile shower to understand the proper steps that must be taken, before the first piece of tile is set, to ensure that your investment will not fail as this shower did. I have personally seen, and read of many more, showers that have failed prematurely and all because of some important, but often overlooked, steps in the early stages of construction. Besure that whomever builds your shower explains to you exactly how they are going to construct your sloped floor, both above and below the waterproof membrane, and exactly how they are going to seal the critic area of the curb and the transition to the curb jams. A properly constructed shower should be a once in a lifetime proposition. Please see photos below.

...a photo showing the nearly finished shower. The custumer chose to go with a Southwestern motif in the tile selection to compliment the homes theme. Tile sizes and styles, pattern arrangement, decortive accent tiles and other considerations are limitless. Notice the built-in shampoo niche that was trimmed with complimentary Southwest accent tiles.
