This course focuses on properly installing a conventional water in/water out shower pan. This includes common mistakes and causes of tile installation failure. Attendees will individually construct their own traditional-type shower base and curb out of mortar, while following industry-accepted methods and requirements for waterproofing tile showers.
The instructor will provide an overview of alternative shower systems and products available on the market, shower pan repair techniques, as well as sheet and liquid membranes that are used in various waterproofing applications.
Emphasis is on getting optimal performance out of wet area materials and methods with the goal of ideally eliminating failures and callbacks. Because instructors address the full spectrum of industry-accepted materials and methods, attendees gain the ability to select appropriate materials and methods for the various wet area jobs and challenges that may be encountered.
Attendees receive a certificate of attendance.
The MSB&WP course does not provide any certification or endorsement of ability/knowledge.
