Prefabricated models are available in a variety of designs - from basic models, to high-end looks, to completely custom designs. They can also be customized with extra features such as shelves and grab bars. A great way to make a prefab bathtub appear more sleek is by installing a glass shower door. A glass shower door will help to make the bathroom look larger and brighter. While one piece kits are the most waterproof, they are very bulky and often cannot fit between doors. One piece tub shower combos are most popular for new homes and additions since the kit can be set in place before the walls.
If you intend on applying any non slip adhesive mat for bath tub safety it is best that your surface is smooth, clean and dry prior to the application of any product. Remember to avoid applying any tape over grout lines as it will not adhere as well as the smooth tub surface. Many bath tubs come with a pre textured surface already on the tub from the manufacturer and I would not recommend applying any tape products to this surface.
The next step involves applying the waterproof silicone around the fixtures and fittings inside the enclosure and the outside where the enclosure fits up against the floor and wall. To do this correctly you need to insert the silicone waterproof cartridge in the caulking gun and screw on the nozzle. Using your Stanley knife you need to remove the tip of the nozzle (about 1-2cm) at a slight angle. Once this has been completed the triggered on the caulking gun can now be pressed to release the waterproof silicone for application around the seals and joints.
Once you have found and purchased the standalone shower of your choice, you may want to start installing it right away. Since most standalone shower kits come with instructions, you should easily be able to install your own shower, even if you have no prior home improvement experience. What could be better than having a new shower installed and saving money at the same time?
