Curbless Walkin Shower

I have a handicapped customer who would like a ceramic shower but with no curb. How would I create the shower floor to have the proper slope for drainage if there is no curb between it and the rest of the bathroom. It is a standard wood subfloor, so would I have to actually raise the rest of the bathroom floor by say 3/4" with a new subfloor thus creating a 3/4" difference between and the shower base?

Anyone have any experience?

Welcome, Dave.

It's done alla time. Easier in new construction than remodel, but doable either way. You can lower the shower floor or raise the rest of the bathroom, depending upon your particular situation.

Go to the Advanced part of the Search feature and type in handicapped. Read up a little and come back here with your specific questions.

My opinion; worth price charged.
