that is funny .....however I do need some serious help with this issue. If there is anyone out there who can help me with this I would greatly appreciate it.Not first hand but I can tell you about my sister in law's boss who had very nice imported Italian marble put in his steam room... or sauna one (I forget) anyway, Had to pull it out and put cedar. He scalded his ars when he sat down on it. :laughing:
Keep us posted.
The Tile Council of North America says "minimum 2" per footSeveral things to be aware of
water and vapor proof the bejesus out of the walls and ceiling then do it again just to make sure.
slope the ceiling at least a 3/ 12 to prevent raining on the occupant
Use a steam rated shower door
Make sure the steam outlet slopes either toward the steam unit of towards the outlet with nothing that resembles a trap.
Make sure the steam generator is properly sized for the space and wall materials.
Oh Marble is no problem just use a quality modified thinset compatable with the marble.
Disregard everything else until you answer these things -I am about to install marble tile in a steam room. Does anyone have expert advice about marble in steam rooms??
OK Mike I've come back to this post several times today to see, but either everybody else knows, or nobody wants to ask, so again my curiosity gets the better of me.Disregard everything else until you answer these things -
What color is the marble?
Do you know why this important?
Expert advice starts with you being able to answer those 2 questions before anything else even begins to matter.
