FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO YOU PROVIDE HANDICAPPED-ACCESSIBLE SURFACES?
Yes, we provide handicapped-accessible showers, tubs, vanities and countertops. Our cultured stone and solid surface products are custom manufactured and can be made to fit any dimensions.
WHAT ARE SHOWER PANS?
Shower pans are the base or floor of the shower in freestanding (tub-less) showers.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO REPLACE THE SILICONE SEALANT?
Seams should be inspected annually for separation; when the seam begins to separate, the silicone needs to be replaced. With regular use and cleaning, the silicone sealant we use in installation is expected to last up to 5 years per application. To further extend the life of our seams, periodically spray them with a cleaning polisher.
