Ceramic tiles are often thought to be the only way to waterproof a bathroom or shower area, but thanks to the wonders of modern technology, there are now other options to consider if you are looking for a change. Proclad panels are one such option. Made from PVC, Proclad panels can give a modern bathroom a beautiful clean look. They are a low cost alternative to traditional tiles, so if you are considering a bathroom refit, Proclad PVC panels are an excellent choice. But if you still need some persuading, there are five reasons why Proclad could be the best choice you ever made.
Easy to Install
Proclad panels are nice and easy to install. In fact they are so easy to fit that a competent DIYer will have no problem installing new Proclad panels in place of old ceramic tiles. The panels can easily be cut to size because they contain no plywood or MDF. Each panel is designed to fit together tightly with the aid of a colour co-ordinated trim. The panels are then fixed to the sub-wall using a special polyurethane adhesive.
Great Range of Colours
One of the top reasons why Proclad panels are so popular in bathrooms and shower rooms is that they are available in a fantastic range of different colours. White bathroom suites may be all the rage these days, but who wants a completely white bathroom that is devoid of colour? Although Proclad panels are available in white, you have the option of buying them in many more exciting colours, including Red Wine, Terracotta or Blush Pink!
Nobody wants a leaky bath or shower. Water leaks cause a huge amount of damage and if left untreated, the end result is an expensive repair job. Fitting Proclad panels will ensure your bathroom or shower is completely waterproof, leaving you to have a nice, long soak in the bath in peace. As long as the correct trims are used during the installation process, even the joins between the panels are waterproof.
Easy to Clean
Ceramic tiles may be a popular choice for bathrooms, but they are not the best surface to clean. Because bathrooms are such a high humidity environment, they are prone to mildew and mould growth. This is often a problem when you have ceramic tiles fitted because the grout between the tiles is a great breeding ground for mould and mildew. Grout and cracked tiles also attract dirt and soap scum. Proclad panels are completely smooth and are therefore very easy to clean; they are also mould and mildew resistant.
10 Year Guarantee
Any product that comes with a ten year guarantee is clearly good quality. When you buy Proclad panels for your bathroom or shower, you can relax, safe in the knowledge that your new bathroom will look fantastic for at least ten years—well, it will if you remember to clean it regularly!
Proclad panels are a great choice for a modern bathroom. Once you have tried Proclad, you will wonder what you ever saw in ceramic tiles.
