Bathroom and shower countertops info:
Cultured or synthetic marble - these types of countertops generally come only with basin already molded. Many variations on basin/countertop configurations. Material is heavy, easy to clean, and comes in many pastel colors. Easy to install and relatively low in cost. Some cultured or synthetic marble bathroom countertops are also available in sheets, which you can use to make your own counter top for an inset wash basin. This material can be worked with standard woodworking tools with carbide blades.
Plastic laminate is available in a vast range of colors, textures and patterns at a relatively low price. Easy to clean, though it is subject to scorch and scratch marks. Laminating the plastic to the chipboard or plywood base and cutting the basin hole can be done by a pro. Cost is moderate.
When considering a wash basin, first decide what type you want: freestanding pedestal, wall-hung, separate basin or a one-piece molded basin and countertop unit. If you want to set a basin into a countertop, you should know that there are three types: self-rimming, flush mounted with a metal rim, and recessed.
Most basins come with holes predrilled for fittings, but some, like the recessed type, may require you to install fittings through the countertop. Materials used to manufacture bathroom and shower basins vary. Lawton, Duncan, Vernon TX and Frederick TX all serviced.
The transparent or colored coding on the top side of ceramic tile is called a glaze. Glazes are made up of lead silicates and pigment and are brushed or sprayed onto the surface of the bisque and fired. Please can be applied to green biscuit and fired with the bisqueware applied to fire bisque to be fired again.
Clay is a moisture absorbing substance. Glazes repel moisture from the top surface of ceramic tiles, but do not protect the eyes and bak. Proper tile installation protects substrate from water damage.
Home Shower Removal Tip: The inside of a shower partition is essentially the same as that of any small, nonbearing wall. It will be made of some combination of waterproof wallboard, plaster studs, and lath. Break up the wall by pounding it with a sledgehammer. Work on only one side of the wall, and only between the studs. Whenever necessary, pull sections of the wall apart with your hands or prybar. If the wood lath resists, you can cut through it with a circular saw; if the lath is metal, use tinsinips or good wire cutters. Hammer along the studs to free any exposed. wallboard, plywood or lath supports and push the wall through to its far side.
Bathroom tip: If you install molding, place a piece of cardboard between the vinyl and the molding, nail the molding to the wall, and then remove the cardboard. This will leave a clearance between the molding and the floor, which allows the walls and floor to shift without affecting the vinyl. Install a threshold at the doorway to protect that edge.
