Frequently Asked Questions
When we go into designing the floor of your shower we always slope the floor a quarter inch per foot leading to the drain. This lets all the water flow to the drain instead of all over your floor, which could lead to a lot of more problems.
That slope not only makes your shower leak-less but it also makes more safe. Creating less chance of falling or slipping on the ground. Get in contact with us and/or schedule a free consultation if you are interested in a walk-in shower.
The tile can get slippery but Home For Life uses tile that is recommended by the ADA with a COF (Coefficient of Friction) rating of 0.6 or greater. That just means that your tile will have the right amount of texture to avoid any slip or fall.
