How to Install a Shower Rod in Marble
November 20, 2019
Exactly the hard surface that gives its traditional beauty to marble makes it an unforgiving substance with which to work. When installing a shower pole in a marble bath This creates a dilemma. Sticks work but lack a sound look. It needs one to drill holes, although A pole mounted with mounts provides that solidity. The task sounds harder than it is, as long as you take your time and use the right tools and technique.
Determine the space from the rear wall of the enclosure to allow the shower curtain to hang in the position, in addition to the height where you want to mount the shower pole. Place a bit of duct tape on the wall at this spot on both sides of the shower enclosure. Measure carefully and draw a large”X” on the two bits of tape, with the center of the”X” marking where you want the center of the shower pole bracket to be.
Build brackets and the shower rod. While you hold another, have a helper hold one end of the pole in position. Place a level on top of the pole. If the pole is not level, raise one side or another slightly until it’s, keeping the bracket consistent with the”X” on the tape as you do this. As a way to create a mark on the tape for every screw 21, use the holes.
Select sized to the plug-type wall anchors as recommended by the pole manufacturer for use or as well as the shower pole. Mount the piece into the chuck of a power drill. Drill a hole in the masonry at each of the marked places. Without trying to force the piece through the substance at drill speeds that are lower and work. Lubricate the piece with clean water since you drill the holes. Stop drilling whenever the marble has been pierced through by you and carefully withdraw the piece.
Gently tap on a wall anchor into each of the holes with a hammer. Have a helper hold the shower pole as it is mounted by you at each end using the screws supplied with the wall anchors.
