Bathroom Remodeling – San Jose – Fiberglass shower pan
The lead article (the table of contents if you will) is titled Bathroom Remodeling.
A fiberglass shower pan is a single piece shower pan that is made out of fiberglass (probably no surprise there)
It’s main advantage over an engineered stone shower pan is the reduced cost. Fiberglass pans are much cheaper.
Although it is possible to apply tile over a fiberglass shower pan, it is recommended that you do not.
The primary reason is the pan will flex some as you stand on it and move around. This is not a bad thing, but the flexing will cause the mortar below the tiles and the grout between the tiles to stress some and eventually the grout will start to crack.
This will not compromise the water tight integrity of the pan, but will create cracks and crevasses that are hard to clean and become a place where mold and bacteria will grow and thrive.
If you do insist on having a fiberglass shower pan tiled, be sure your contractor has installed many fiberglass pans in the past, so they know how to get the pan as secure as possible to ensure it moves around as little as possible.
