Pasting a sheet of glass on the bathroom wall to remodel
When remodeling a bathroom, you can choose sheets of glass to cover the walls. This material protects the walls from moisture and is easy to clean, making it a viable choice for bathrooms with high humidity. You can use glass sheets as a backsplash behind the sink to cover the wall. These frosted sheets are available in colors and as stained glass. Strong glue will hold the glass in place to last many years. Installation is like hitting a mirror above the bathroom sink mirror.
- Prepare the wall for cover glass painted with a sealant, such as polyurethane surface. The sealant protects the paint and immediately takes the adhesive. Sealant should be applied with a roller or a cloth. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions and allow the sealer dry completely before proceeding.
- Insert the tube of caulk gun in a sealant, after cutting the tip. Press a nail into the nozzle to open the tube.
- Align the edge of the glass with putty leaving about half inch (1.2 cm) between the glue line and the edge of the glass. Use a line of adhesive that is 1/8 inch (5 cm) and 1/2 inch (1.2 cm) wide. Only applies glue on the vertical sides. This ensures that air can flow under the glass, so that the glue will dry more quickly. No overlaps the glue or apply it in circles, because it traps air.
- Press the glass in place on the wall, so that it is firmly in place. Have someone hold the glass while placing the brackets.
- Place strips of wood on the bottom and on each side of the glass. Use drywall screws and wood screws on a support beam. Wooden strips holding the mirror while drying putty.
- Allow the putty to dry according to the package instructions, at least 24 hours.
- Remove the screws from the wood strips and throw. Fill the holes that have left with drywall compound. Paint around the glass to cover holes stuffed.
