Waterproofed Florida Shower – Laticrete HydroBan


Being a Professional Tile Contractor & Installer in Tampa, Florida I have noticed a lot of damaged showers from water damage, rot, leaks and black mold. The lack of a surface membrane is usually the main reason these problems occur.

Did you know the average residential shower gets about 4,500 gallons of water in it every year. 1 shower a day for 12 min with 2.5 gal per min. shower head = 1100″ rain annually.

Unfortunately, too many bathrooms are not protected properly with a waterproofing membrane, thereby increasing the risk of water damage, mold and mildew growth.

Professional tile contractors know the importance of a properly built shower with a waterproofing membrane.

But what’s the best way to waterproof your shower ?

Take a look at  HydroBan by Laticrete.
