Best Plastic Shims for Construction

When it comes to construction, you need a shim tough enough to stand up to the task at hand. Wobble Wedge® plastic shims can support up to 2,000 lbs, making them perfect for holding heavy loads like stone countertops, wooden window frames, and heavy porcelain toilets. If you’re vetting out which plastic shims are the best for construction, look no further than Wobble Wedge. The patented interlocked ridges keep the shims from moving or sliding apart under weight or pressure of heavy material. Even when exposed to moisture, Wobble Wedge plastic construction shims will not rot, swell, or expand making them ideal for use in bathrooms, kitchens, basements, and garages.

Need more proof that Wobble Wedges are the best plastic shim for construction projects? Below are some of our customers favorite uses for Wobble Wedges in residential and commercial construction environments.

Window Framing and Installation

Even with all of the care, measuring, and leveling in the world sometimes windows just won’t sit level in their frames. Use a standard size or BigGap™ Wobble Wedge, depending on the size of your gap, to accommodate and level the window before framing in and finishing the window. Windows that slide open or closed on tracks must be especially level for the sliding mechanism to work smoothly.

Stone Countertop Installation

Multiple cabinet units installed side-by-side are rarely perfectly flush all the way across the top. In addition, stone slabs contain natural imperfections that can cause them to wobble or rock when installed. Sometimes, even a Mini Wobble Wedge is enough to sure up the gap and get the countertop to sit perfectly flush. Use a flexible plastic Wobble Wedge between the stone and the cabinet top.

Level Stone and Concrete Pavers, Blocks & Steps

The buck doesn’t stop there! Use BigGap™ Wobble Wedges and standard sized Wobble Wobble plastic shims to level stone and concrete pavers, blocks, and steps. Finish up a new set of exterior concrete steps with perfection by compensating for any gaps with Wobble Wedges. Install a new stone paver patio free of tripping hazards by putting plastic shims under any of the pavers that rock or wobble.

Fix a Wobbly Toilet

For more than three decades Wobble Wedge has been earning its reputation as the best toilet shim among professional master plumbers and residential handymen. It couldn’t possibly be easier to use. Simply slide a flexible plastic Wobble Wedge under the rim of the toilet and use an exacto knife to trim away the excess. Wobble Wedge toilet shims are available in white, clear, and black. Choose the color that blends most seamlessly into the finished environment.

Level Large Appliances on Uneven Flooring
