The process starts with coating a concrete shower pan with a coating of hot tar. This layer is then topped with tar paper including folded sections for the corners. Hot mopping the shower pan is the best way to go. The only downside of hot tar is the danger of using the substance, this is why it is always best to hire a professional. Our company currently has 5 locations in Southern California which offer hot mopping in the Orange County and Los Angeles County metro area. The cost associated with hot mopping seems is in the $350 range. Hot Mopping tar method may be slightly more expensive than using a membrane liner, but we believe it to be money well spent considering the added security of not having a water failure.
