Tony Vanario, president of Richmond Tile & Bath, reveals some of the water-proofing technology used in a wedi® shower and bath system.

New York City retailer is known throughout the Northeast for offering the very best state-of-the-art products available

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — As a leading retailer of shower systems, therapeutic home spas, and more, Richmond Tile & Bath of Staten Island, N.Y., has an enviable reputation for keeping the right places luxuriously wet.

Water nourishes health, but it can severely damage a home’s shower area. Richmond Tile & Bath understands this. As a major source of cutting-edge wedi® products, the company ingeniously protects bath and shower spaces from the threat of moisture and water damage.

“Everybody has a potential disaster when it comes to their shower,” said Tony Vanario, president of Richmond Tile & Bath. “But our customers know it doesn’t have to be that way.”

Moisture helps to breed mold, mildew and threatening micro-organisms.

“The wedi® system provides an opportunity to construct entire bath and shower systems in a totally waterproof environment,” Vanario explained. “Even the structural materials are waterproof.”

Once wedi® products are installed, mold and mildew are no longer a concern.


Conventional plasterboard, water-resistant ‘green’ wall boards, adhesives and grout are food for mold and mildew,” Vanario explained. “Remove the food, and mold and mildew have nothing to feast upon; problem solved.”

From wall-applications to floor elements to subliners, waterproof furniture, and more, wedi products are a perfect fit for Richmond Tile & Bath.

The Staten Island retailer, whose long-standing mission of excellence began with its launching nearly 40 years ago, is a popular destination for homeowner throughout the New York tri-state area.


Established in 1973, Richmond Tile & Bath has grown to become one of the nation’s leading retailer’s of top-quality tile; shower systems; massage and soaking tubs; luxury-plumbing faucets; bath furniture; mirrors; fixtures; medicine cabinets; a host of wellness-oriented products, such as therapeutic home spas and whole-home water-filtration systems, and much more.

Well-known for offering state-of-the art products that are often unavailable elsewhere, Richmond Tile & Bath’s 30,000-square-foot warehouse and showroom location offers the world’s very finest brands, and displays them in home-like settings.
