How To Build A Mud Pan Shower Base

To build a mud pan shower base, the first step is to remove your existing shower base or bathtub. Once that demolition is completed, we will form up your newly designed shower base. The amazing thing about building a custom shower is when utilizing a mud pan shower base, the design possibilities are unlimited. We will form up your mud pan shower base in the location of your new bathroom remodeling job. When you decide where your new shower is to be located, we will start by installing a rubber bladder that has been installed around your shower drain. This rubber bladder will be installed 8 inches above the base of your shower and wrap the threshold of your shower base. Dreamland makes an incredibly sturdy rubber shower base, but other manufacturers produce amazing shower pan rubber shower base material. Once your shower base has a top-of-the-line rubber bladder installed, we will need to water test the bladder to make sure that your shower does not leak. Once your mud pan shower base rubber bladder is waterproofed and verified, we will go to the next step. The next step is to mix a 50-50 blend of Portland cement and find masonry sand laid over your shower base rubber bladder. This process requires experts so that the grading of your shower base leads to the drain. Once the cement shower pan has been created, we can lay tile on the surface.
