The results of using a Wedi Shower System are truly impressive. This blog will go from before, during and after pictures to demonstrate the ease of use, speed of installation, and final results of a Wedi Tub Replacement Shower. The bathroom had an existing tub that was 5’ long. The 3’ x 6’ Wedi offset pan fit nicely into the existing tub drain. This allowed a large shower of 3’ x 6’ to fit into the existing space with a little bit of trimming to the length to 5’ 10”. The Wedi wall panels were erected and then using Wedi 2” board a custom bench was assembled within the shower enclosure. This bench took about 45 minutes to build. In addition twin 16” x 22” soap niches were installed to assure plenty of storage for soaps etc. As in many tub to shower conversions a window is present. Wedi ½ board was installed up to the window frame and caulked with Wedi sealant. The window sill was slightly sloped to promote drainage. The entire Wedi installation to get the shower tile ready took about 5 hours. Lastly, the finished product, a shower that will not leak, will not mold or mildew and because of the closed cell foam will be warm even in the winter.
