Frequently Asked QuestionsFAQs for short
Why use cultured marble?
Our showers are an attractive long lasting, low maintenance, affordable solution for your bathroom. Cultured Marble never requires sealing like a natural stone or grout. It resists mildew and stains. Cultured Marble remains at room temperature and won’t be cold when you step in or sit on a corner seat or custom bench. We can customize the size, shape and color for your needs.
How long does it take to get cultured marble?
Once the color has been selected and deposit made most orders can be made in 5-7 working days. Installation of showers is usually a two step process. We set the shower base at the bare studs, after rough plumbing and before sheet rock. Shower walls are installed after painting.
Do you do shower doors?
We are a distributor for the Agalite line of shower enclosures, featuring a lifetime warranty. There is a wide range of metal and glass finishes to choose from. Our show room displays the Accent Collection with a Euro Header swing door in a Brushed Nickel and also a bypass door in Oil Rubbed Bronze. Additionally, we have a Chrome Accent sliding enclosure with rain glass and a swing door with gray tint glass.
Do you do plumbing?
We are not certified to do plumbing but work with several local plumbers. We are happy to coordinate schedules after the tear out of the old and installation of the new.
How do I take care of my cultured marble surfaces?
For daily maintenance, we recommend using a squeegee on the shower walls and use a spray on leave on cleaner such as Tilex Fresh Shower® or Clean Shower® by Arm and Hammer, Scrubbing Bubbles®,daily shower cleaner.
Liquid gel or foaming cleaners like Scrubbing Bubbles®, Liquid Comet® or Clorox Gel® work well for routine cleaning. NEVER use an abrasive cleaner on your cultured marble. DO NOT use Soft Scrub®.
For a nice shine and to help resist soap and hard water build up use a coat of Gel Gloss®.
If you get stubborn water spots you can use Lime-Away liquid cleaner. You can also use a car buffer and buff out with a light car wax.
