Should You Insulate Behind a Shower?


Your beautiful bathroom quickly becomes a home for mold, water, and moisture. Left undone, your leaky shower might result in serious damage or flooding. Choose a professional shower remodel from Jescore Renovations the high quality insulation you need. Our experts have put together these important facts about the importance of professional shower installation.

The Danger of Leaks

A leaky shower results in significant damage over time. If you do not have a professional shower remodel, oftentimes water pools and moisture destroys the structural integrity of your home. Upper level bathrooms may flood lower levels. Neglected air seals and insulation leaks can cause dangerous mold growth.

Air Barriers

Professional remodelers will install an air barrier. They will avoid any gaps, compressions, and misalignments. Professionals can use a wide variety of materials when installing insulation:

  • Glass mat gypsum
  • Fiber cement
  • Cementitious backer panels
  • Other materials

Ask your contractor about the best way to insure insulation and waterproofing in your bathroom.
