Tile Shower Remodeling
A large custom tile shower is definitely one amenity that everyone wants in their dream home. Tile showers are approximately twice the price of a fiberglass shower, but tile showers have many advantages. Many showers are fiberglass and commonly are placed in a 3 x 3 foot area.
Due to the shape of fiberglass showers, an inch of space is lost because the walls of the shower due not butt up to the stub walls creating some dead space. This equates to at least 4 square inches lost when using a fiberglass shower. On the other hand, tile is laid directly on a water resistant cement board similar to sheetrock that is nailed to the stud walls. A basic tile shower will run you a minimum of $3000.00 which does not include a shower door.
A shower door installed will run you a minimum of $400. A lower end shower doors are made of a Plexiglas material incased in a lightweight aluminum frame. For a frameless glass door one can expect to pay $800 or more. Tile showers are just one of many facets in bathroom remodeling that Baton Rouge has found a trusted name.
