Sleek, impressive showers and bathrooms can add tens of thousands of dollars to home values in nice neighborhoods. Indeed, even those planning to stay in their homes long term can appreciate a well-designed shower. One of the hottest trends in modern bathroom design is the inclusion of curbless walk-in showers with linear drains.
Unfortunately, trendy designs often carry a hefty price tag; and it’s no different with curbless shower designs and linear drain installations. However, with some innovative thinking, two brothers, Ryan and Matt Kriser decided it was time to make state-of-the-art linear drains available to more than just high-end homes. It all began with some extensive research on shower systems; Ryan and Matt found the Schluter Kerdi brand linear drain system had the best long-term track record with little to no leaking problems. As contractors, they began using the Schluter Kerdi system on every home they built, and they loved everything about it - everything except the high price. This superior shower waterproof system was quite expensive compared to traditional installations, so the Kriser brothers had to raise prices on their homes, which made them less competitive with other builders using the older, cheaper shower installation systems.
Ryan and Matt decided to look for alternate options to offer a quality product like the Kerdi, but at a more affordable price. They investigated to see if other companies made a comparable system for less. Several companies did produce a product comparable to the Schluter Kerdi – but they carried a similar high price tag too.
Since efficiency is one of Matt’s proven business strengths, Ryan suggested Matt look into creating an affordable, similar tile shower waterproof system. Ryan also knew Matt was committed to quality and providing the greatest value to customers. As it turns out, the Kriser brothers’ work paid off and they went on to develop a superior cutting-edge polyethylene shower waterproof system which is now available to the market through Trugard Direct, giving smaller more affordable homes the opportunity to be protected from leaking showers and water damage while also enjoying the modern simplistic design of curbless showers with linear drains.
One finding revealed the Schluter Kerdi system was primarily being installed in high-end luxury homes and commercial building projects. It also showed many tile contractors were still using outdated, inferior rubber shower pans and cement backer board systems simply because the Schluter Kerdi system would raise the price of their bids. Even so, some remodeling contractors explained to the Krisers that in over 15 years not one of these new, exceptional polyethylene systems had failed and they hadn’t had a leaking shower since they started using them.
