The Tile Doctor - DVD Volume III : How to Install Showers
If you ever thought about remodeling an old shower, or just putting in a new one, you cannot be without this video. A tile or stone shower is one of the most comprehensive and costly tile installations in the home. If done wrong the moisture damage and other installation problems can result in major problems such as mold and mildew.
Paul and Jodi break it down into easy-to-follow steps showing you what to look out for when tackling this type of project. Even the most extreme shower installation in a home, the Steam Shower, is completed flawlessly in this DVD. We take through the backerboard installation, to the lay out, to tile and grouting.
Ideas on accent tiles with liners are shown along with other finishing pieces demonstrated, including the shampoo shelves.
This is a great DVD for the person who is hiring a contractor and wants to protect their investment by insuring their shower is done according to proper installation methods. All installation techniques use the highest standards in the industry and all content is approved by a non-profit industry organization dedicated to teaching proper installations: The Ceramic Tile Institute of America (CTIOA).
