Pepe Tile Installation specializes in all types of tile shower installations including;tub surrounds,stall showers,converting your tub area into a stall shower,new shower construction,and removal of any existing tile showers.
The choices for tiling your shower include;ceramic and porcelain tiled showers,marble tiled showers and natural stone tiled showers.There are no advantages of one over the other,as any tile will hold up well in the shower.The exception being that ceramic and porcelain require no maintenance while natural stone and tumbled marble may need to be sealed periodically.
No matter what tile you choose for your shower,the grout should always be sealed,and this should be considered as part of your maintenance for any tile shower.Sealing the grout is really simple and most customers will seal the grout themselves,mainly because the grout needs to cure for 48 to 72 hours before being sealed.
Sealing the grout is just a matter of applying the grout sealer with a rag or foam brush and then removing any excess sealer from the tile with a dry towel.A shower can be sealed in under an hour and probably only needs to be done every couple years.
All tile showers are easy to maintain and choosing the right tile just depends on your preferences,the look of the tile,and the cost.
Popular trends in new tile showers have been natural stone tiled showers,porcelain tiled showers,using a mosaic strip to add an accent to the shower,and the use of marble corner shelves.Also,stall showers with a tile floor are more popular than stall showers with a fiberglass pan for the floor.
