How High Should the Shower Stall Curb Be?


Hi,
I'm doing some remodeling and was wondering if there is a standard size for the curb of a shower stall. Or if it should be how ever high is convenient for tile size.
Thanks,
Murph

When the subfloor is made of wood and the curb is made of 2x4's we generally go 3-2x4's high, so 4.5" plus what ever is above it. This could be concrete board and tiles, or mud and tiles. All depends on your chosen method.

Hi Murf,

I just had my neo angle shower finished; The dam was built using (3) 2x4's on top of one another on wood subfloor. Tile guy used 6" glazed ceramic tile w/quarter round trim for the dam and it finished-out at 6.5" hi by 6.5" wide.

Keep in miond the curb/dam height must accommodate the shower floor height inside the shower also. Typically the curb/dam is higher outside the shower than it is inside the shower. In the rough...somewhere between 5" and 6".
