Our Carefully-Crafted Process Ensures You Are Truly Satisfied With Your Finished Project

Part of what sets us apart is the low-stress process you enjoy while we work. For instance, we never use high-pressure sales, always do what we promise, and are easy to reach. Moreover, we employ premium materials and precision workmanship. But what really distinguishes us from other wet area specialists is our commitment to the four steps of The Shugarman’s Way.

1. Strip The Space Down To The Studs

The first thing we do is to strip your wet area down to the studs. This lets us spot and identify numerous common problems that homeowners are often not even aware of. Common issues include:
  • Mold
  • Rotting Subfloors
  • Plumbing Problems
  • Pest or Rodent Infestations
  • Damage Caused by Ants or Termites
Many contractors don’t strip the wet space down, so they never spot these issues. We can’t abide the thought of constructing a beautiful wet area upon a weakened foundation.

2. Make Necessary Repairs

Once we spot an issue with the subfloor or support structure, we take steps to eliminate the problem. This ensures that subsequent work is sturdy, durable, and strong. Our approach is meticulous, and we eliminate all signs of damage, pests, and trapped moisture. We never cut corners and make certain that your new wet area’s foundation is level and solid.

3. Replace Foundational Materials

Your bathroom’s wet area features numerous foundational materials you may not be familiar with and which other wet area businesses may leave as they are. These include the shower valve, the P-trap, and more. The result is that all the aging hardware and support structure materials get replaced with cutting-edge items to ensure peak performance and years of trouble-free service.

4. Apply Our “Never Leak” System

The fourth step of The Shugarman’s Way is the application of an effective leak-prevention system to ensure the foundation and subfloor remain firm and dry for decades to come. We install an exceptional quality DensShield backer board, which is similar to waterproof sheetrock appropriate for wet spaces. And on top of that, we add a top-quality shower pan. We apply corner strips or flashing to the walls to cover seams where moisture might seep through. Then we install a Bath Planet shower base, which is composed of BP-Cor2 material. BP-Cor2 is made of 15% durable rubber acrylic and 85% acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), a tough, rubbery, thermoplastic polymer. The four layers prevent moisture damage to your foundation and puddling on the bathroom floor. The result is a high-quality shower remodel that lasts for decades and operates precisely as it should.
