Can You Install a Shower Surround Over Tile?
It’s a conundrum facing most homeowners these days – the tiled shower. While tiles seemed like a good idea at first, and looked beautiful for at least the first few weeks after being installed, as the years went by, you most likely began to see what a chore it is to keep your shower walls looking good. From scrubbing grout to dealing with mold and mildew growth, there’s nothing easy about taking care of a tiled shower. Which is why you’re probably looking at your options for shower surrounds. A low-maintenance shower surround that just needs to be wiped down – not scrubbed with harsh cleaning products – probably sounds like heaven to your ears. The good news is, these shower surrounds exist and can be quickly installed over your tiled shower in just one day.
Why You Should Trust a Professional to Install a Shower Surround
You may be tempted to go the route of DIY when it comes to installing a shower surround, but this is a project that is best left in the hands of a professional bathroom contractor. There are a lot of little details that go into a shower surround installation, from sanding down the tiles to making sure there aren’t any gaps between the surround and the edge of your shower, and missing even a simple step can affect the longevity of the surround. Instead, turn to MaxHome, a local bathroom contractor serving New Orleans homeowners, for a top-notch shower surround installation.
