Whether it’s the master bathroom of your dreams, designed to be an oasis of relaxation, complete with a soaking tub, custom tile shower, double vanity, and radiant floor heating. Or a hardworking second bath for the kids, the same basic principals of sound construction practices and waterproofing techniques apply.
At HRH Construction Inc., we have found that bathroom renovations are the most common area where we see basic construction techniques executed incorrectly or not at all. This can lead to water leaks and cause mold and structural damage to the bathroom. This results in not only costly repairs for the homeowner, but also poses a serious health concern for the occupants.
It is a common misconception that the tile itself is waterproof, however it is not. It’s the material that the tile is installed on that should provide the waterproofing. Common tile substrates such as cement backer board or sheetrock are not waterproof.
In almost 20 years that HRH Construction Inc. has been in business, we have yet to remove a single bathroom that did not have water damage, at minimum. This is why we exclusively use the Schluter family of products to ensure a watertight foundation for all our bathroom projects, saving our clients from costly repairs down the line.
With the proper waterproof foundation in place, your imagination is the only limit on creating the custom bathroom of your dreams. To learn more about out bathroom remodeling services, contact us by filling out our contact form, or to reach us more directly, give us a call at 978-314-7263.
