shower stall

  1. Remodeling
    We have a soaking tub with an adjoining shower stall with aluminum frame and a "glass" (but I guess some kind of plastic?) surround. It was originally clear, when built in 2008, but now it's all hazy and we have tried everything we saw on line to clean, I believe the finish has been eaten away...

    We added on to our in-laws house a few years ago, here in Oregon. So when I retired (which I did last month). We had a nice place to live. Plus we just added a workshop for me, it's almost complete. Our addition was an 800 sq ft Master bedroom & bath. The show is large, with 2 full glass walls...

    I'm re-doing what was once a very makeshift shower stall. I've put up the cement board and I'm nearly ready to tile with 12 x 12 ceramic tiles. But I noticed there's more flex in the cement board than I expected. Two studs are spaced 20 inches apart. Where the spacing is 16 inches, it still...

    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

    Noticed shower stall base not level inside (frame of base is level) AFTER remodelers were done with job. The ("plastic") shower base was set into wet concrete and a marble floor installed a few days later. Now when one takes a shower the water pools because the drain is pretty much the high...

    Hello, I bought a shower kit. It comes with the base, walls, and door. I would like to install this shower in my basement utility/laundry room. The drainage down there is a four inch hole in the floor. There is a utility sink over it, with a drain pipe that just drops water into this drain...
