Skokie, IL (PRWEB) August 24, 2015
Many shower floors were not properly supported during the installation process, leading to cracks forming over time. These cracks allow water to seep in, promoting mold and weakening the subfloor below. North American Polymer Company (NAPCO) is now providing fiberglass shower inlays which provide a permanent solution to cracked shower floors.
In the 70’s and 80’s many builders were installing fiberglass showers. When properly installed, these worked out great. However many builders did not properly support the shower pan. The lack of support lead to cracked shower floors.
Unfortunately, cracked shower floors means water seeps in. The most significant problem associated with this is mold. Many Americans are allergic to mold and it can cause some serious respiratory problems. With a cracked shower floor, the mold never goes away. Another issue arising from cracked shower floors is subfloor damage due to constant exposure to water. Over time, this can cause serious structural problems requiring a complete replacement of the shower and floor underneath.
NAPCO’s fiberglass shower refinishing solution is a plastic inlay that permanently bonds to the shower floor. Applied with a marine-grade adhesive, the result is a like-new floor that won’t crack. The inlay also has the advantage of an anti-slip surface for increased safety. The installation process is easy and you can use the shower the next day.
NAPCO offers a home kit through Home Depot and Lowes. They can also recommend a local tradesman who can do a custom install. For more information please visit napcoltd.com.
