Why let moisture turn your luxurious shower space into discomfort? – Install PVC shower wall panels

23 January, 2023

Your shower room is exposed to heavy dampness and moisture that can damage the walls and ceiling. There is no way you can reduce the humidity levels. You can control its effects on the walls and ceiling to prevent further damage. There can be various reasons for dampness that includes pipe leakages, poor floor condition and other plumbing problems. 

A shower room accumulates excessive moisture after each usage and this leads to condensation. The warm air undergoes condensation and is collected in the form of droplets on the walls and ceiling. The wet walls and ceiling can get damaged soon due to daily exposure to humidity. Bare walls and ceiling are not at all recommended. Cover up the walls and ceiling with a layer of moisture resistant paneling.

Excessive condensation can lead to dripping water along the surface of the bathrooms. This can lead to paint chipping off and ruined wallpapers. There can be mold formation if the dampness issue is left unresolved. Duramax panels are 100% water-resistant so they arrest moisture from settling on the walls and ceiling. This prevents the formation of bacteria and mold on the surface. Also, the vinyl boards are covered with an antibacterial layer that acts as a barrier. It is good to have dehumidifiers, have adequate ventilation, keep windows open, keep a check on the heating and cooling vents. You can take cooler showers to reduce the moisture levels.

You do not need to plan before installing PVC panels because you can do it any day. Shower wall panel installation can be completed within 7 to 8 hours. The process will not even need one full day so you do not have to break your head thinking about not being able to use the shower room next morning.

The vinyl boards are exactly cut to shape prior to installation. There are no backers beneath the panels so there are no chances of moisture leaking into the walls and ceiling. The PVC boards are attached to the studs with fasteners and invisible screws. The vinyl panels have interlocking grooves and tongues to make the installation quicker. These tongues and grooves are helpful in keeping away moisture and humidity.  Our contractors use a transparent or off-white silicone in between the panels for moisture lock. You can use wall studs on the wall attachments in case you want to hang objects on the panel surface. The fasteners should be able to endure the load.

PVC shower wall panels do not attract bacteria and impurities. The panels do not require daily cleaning and maintenance. We suggest wiping the surface of the panels with a damp cloth and a mild cleanser. Do not use agents like acids, abrasives, bleaches, or other harsh agents. The panels would be exposed to water, also there is nothing to worry about deliberate washing as the panels remain untouched by moisture.

There are various types of walls and ceiling covering like plywood, drywall and FRP panels. These are not suitable for areas where there is excessive humidity. Vinyl panels have gained popularity for being the only wall and ceiling covering that can stand humidity and improve the aesthetics. The vinyl panels have more than 100 years of shelf life whereas FRP boards can last for a maximum of 20 to 25 years. FRP panels have taken a backseat due to the various disadvantages. They are almost obsolete now. Do not fix old FRP sheets.

The advent of PVC panels is one of the dominant reasons why FRP panels have taken a backseat. FRP sheets last only a few years because they peel off, delaminate and crack easily. There are various other disadvantages of FRP boards so they have become obsolete. So, there is no point in fixing old FRP sheets once more. Embrace a modern solution, choose PVC boards. Say goodbye to moisture infiltration, delamination, cracking and peeling off.

Duramax PVC Panels has been manufacturing PVC sheets for residential and commercial use for more than 40 years. Our vinyl panels are installed in grow rooms, car washes, commercial kitchens, laundries, fisheries, shipping containers, breweries, commercial spaces, hospitals, shower walls, riding stables and more. The products are ASTM-certified, CFIA-certified, and FDA-compliant. The PVC shower wall panels are ½ inch thick, 16-inch wide and available in customized length. Each panel weighs 8 lbs and they can support attic load insulation. The vinyl boards are available in white color but we take only bulk orders for grey panels.

PVC wall panels have no porosity and they are extremely light in weight. This makes the transportation easier and less expensive. The PVC shower wall panels can be recycled 4 times more than FRP sheets. They are environment-friendly so recycling them produces little waste. They sheets do not release toxic substances so they are safe for the pets and kids.
