This is because as the building warps, the grouting in the shower enclosure is more likely to crack. If this cracking happens, it would mean the enclosure is no longer watertight and is therefore prone to leaking. The potential problem there is that if any water finds its way into a building’s timber frame, it can cause rot, which in turn can jeopardise the building’s structural integrity. A traditional shower enclosure in a timber frame building could be a costly accident waiting to happen.


Cubicles over enclosures


LOW-MAINTENANCE Shower cubicles require little maintenance and are quick to install


A growing number of independent house builders across the UK are realising the benefits of shower cubicles and installing them from the outset. Shower cubicles don't require any tiles, grouting or silicone, which means no unhealthy build-up of mould, and no broken or loose tiles to repair. Furthermore, their installation is swift, cost-effective and hassle-free, and the cubicles are also low-maintenance bathroom solutions.


These features make cubicles ideal for timber frame buildings. Since no tiles or grouting is necessary, there’s no danger


of cracks forming when the house warps over time. There’s no risk of leaks forming in the bathroom, minimising the chance of water seeping through to the structural frame and causing it to rot, thus jeopardising the building’s structural integrity.


For existing timber frame buildings with traditional shower enclosures, aside from costly periodical maintenance, complete replacement is a viable option. The replacement can be completed relatively hassle-free, sometimes even in less than a day, guaranteeing homeowners peace of mind and ensuring their bathroom wouldn’t be off limits for weeks. Instead, they can have a clean, stylish, future-proof bathroom in no time at all. Shower cubicles’ low-maintenance


profile, coupled with their modern design and quick installation times, are ideal for timber frame homes, which need bathroom solutions that aren’t prone to leaks. Regardless of a timber property’s purpose, architects should consider specifying cubicles as a cost-effective, long-term bathroom solution, which would continue to look pristine for years on end.
