We at Trades of the Triangle understand bathroom improvements – be it a fixture replacement that just couldn't wait any longer and needs to be done yesterday or an update of a greater scope – we can do it. We will help you conceive of, design and carry out such a project. Our crews are trained in and accustomed to implementing all necessary measures for cleanliness, dust containment and minimally invasive techniques to reduce the disturbance, associated with an interior project. It is our promise that throughout the duration of the job, all the evidence of the ongoing work will be limited to the bathroom itself, leaving your home's interior every day just as comfortable and safe as it always is.
Bathroom remodeling requires significant expertise in many areas, but in none of them as much as in the tiled shower. Anyone attempting to put one together without adequate education and training is positively bound to fail, without exaggeration. Tiled shower pan is a sandwich of seven (that's 7!) layers, each one of them essential. Plywood, vapor barrier, lath reinforcement, sub-slope, membrane, mortar bed, tile – from the bottom up. Every year we are assigned to a grim task of taking apart and rebuilding a handful of showers that were built only a few short years prior. Direct impact of hot water several times a day creates an unforgiving environment and corners, cut during construction, will make themselves known in a way of mold and mildew, persistent leaks, grout failures, cracking tile, rot, decay and more mold. As in any project Trades of the Triangle are involved in, we dot every “i” and cross every “t” in our showers, which allows us to proudly declare a nice round zero shower pan failures out of dozens and dozens built over the years!! (Including one 6 feet by 10 feet three-men shower at the fraternity house in Chapel Hill – going strong in the harshest of environments known to humankind)!
