“Block” Out Some Time to Upgrade Your Shower

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: BathInterior

Back by popular demand, Hawaii Glass Block will again host a free workshop to show you how you can remove your old bathtub or shower and replace it with the wedi® 100 percent waterproof shower system and add a glass block wall so you can eliminate a shower door or shower curtain. The free workshop will be held at 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 16 at the Hawaii Glass Block showroom and warehouse located at 284 Kalihi St.

The wedi Fundo total shower solution is the industry’s innovative application for constructing waterproof tiled showers. With its uncomplicated assembly process and ability to be tiled the same day, the system installs quickly and efficiently, reducing substrate preparedness from days to hours.

The wedi system is in stock at Hawaii Glass Block. The Fundo bases can be easily cut to size or extended using pre-sloped extension panels to fit any custom shower application. Additionally, since it’s up to 80 percent lighter than conventional shower methods, the wedi system can be installed without threatening a building’s structural properties. The wedi extruded polystyrene products are used to support Energy Star qualifying construction.

Here are topics that will be covered during the workshop:

• Why should I use the wedi system? • Do I have room for a glass block wall panel? • Are glass blocks difficult to install?

Those who should attend the workshop are:

• Homeowners considering a bathroom remodel • Do-it-yourselfers • Handymen • Contractors

A featured contractor will discuss why he or she uses the wedi system. And the company will show you how easy it is to build a glass block panel using its “Stack & Grout” method, or how it can prefabricate a wall for you to easily install. A glass block panel allows natural daylight into your home for positive energy flow.
