Wall surrounds, also known as shower surrounds or bathtub surrounds, serve two purposes; they protect the walls from water damage and they add beauty to the bathroom.
Re-Bath offers the three most popular types of wall surrounds: the Re-Bath patented DuraBath SSP Wall System, natural stone, and tile.
Dura-Bath SSP Wall Surrounds:
Re-Bath offers their own patented material called DuraBath SSP. Made from a nonporous polymer that is both mold and mildew resistant, and it is so durable it comes with a manufacturer’s lifetime warranty.
These wall systems come in solid colors and a variety of colors and patterns that resemble stone, tile, or granite.
DuraBath SSP is a great option for aging in place design because it requires little upkeep. By using mild cleaners DuraBath SSP can keep its original shine and beauty effortlessly.
DuraBath SSP can incorporate matching accessories such as seats, soap and shampoo shelves, and footrests.
One of our most desired and attractive offerings is DuraBath Natural Stone. Stone makes a profound statement. With a wonderful selection of travertine and marble panels, Re-Bath can design a majestic shower for you.
Re-Bath uses state of the art technology that reinforces each natural stone panel to give it 800% more strength at a fraction of the weight. We adhere the stone to a strong durable backing system, creating large panels with the durability of stone slabs.
DuraBath Natural Stone must be sealed periodically to maintain its beauty, but the process is simple.
Most agree the style and sophistication of natural stone is worth the price.
Tile has been the standard for quite some time because it’s durable, comes in a myriad of colors and styles, and can be arranged in many different ways to create a unique look.
Tile is manufactured in ceramic, porcelain, and glass and can be made to resemble wood and stone. Tile is a designers dream come true because of all the possibilities that can be created by using different patterns, colors and textures. There are also many features that can be incorporated to give you a one-of-a-kind design including oversized tile or feature strips.
Oversized Tile: One of the newest styles is oversized tile. These tiles are great for large walk-in showers and come in a variety of sizes.
Feature Strip: Use a feature strips to create a contrast or complementary pop of color.
In the past, one of the major concerns with tile has been cleaning. Spaces between tiles are filled with grout, which is porous and can attract mold and mildew. But technology has evolved and the new high performance grout and sealers all but eliminate the problems with grout. But even with high-tech grout and sealers, grout should be sealed periodically.
