Tile Installation

What to Put Behind the Tiles in your Shower

Tiling installation has become a popular solution with shower remodeling projects in recent years. The flexibility of these fixtures means that they can be integrated into different sections of this room, including the walls.

If you’re planning on tiling your shower walls there might be several requirements you might not have been aware of. One of these elements is the additional protection included with the Jackson WY Tile Installation.

Cement Backer Boards

Cement boards represent one of the stiffest options available. These boards are generally integrated with plastic or liquid membranes to enhance the water resistance available. It’s crucial to avoid any paper-faced backer board when looking to provide coverage against moisture and molding.

Glass Mat Gypsum Board

This alternative is made of gypsum at its inner core and sandwiched by fiberglass coating. Their high water-resistant levels make them ideal for shower sections, and this alternative is potentially cheaper than cement backer boards. They’re available at different prices, depending on the quality involved.

Other alternatives include foam shower backer boards, silica sand and cellulose fibers, and tile backer boards. We offer a wide range of high-quality tile installation services at affordable rates, so call us today! Custom Royal Countertops and Tile, your preferred contractor!
