Shower replacement in the home can be a tedious process, to say the least. You’ve probably tried before when looking for a new shower and were let down by the results. Maybe you spent hundreds of dollars and got what looked like a flimsy, poorly constructed shower. Maybe you invested your hard-earned money in a brand-new shower that has since broken and is a safety hazard. Maybe you’re afraid to install a new shower because you don’t know if you’ll be happy with the end result.
Whatever the reason, it’s frustrating spending money on something you don’t fully understand or know you will not be completely satisfied with. The reason so many homeowners decide to replace their bathtub is usually because they love the tub and want to keep it, but the shower is often a lower priority. Yet, installing a brand new shower may be exactly what the homeowner needs to improve the appearance and overall functionality of their bathroom. There are many different types of showers available on the market today and finding the one best suited for your needs should be fairly easy.
Most shower replacement systems require no special tools or skills. Even basic plumbing skills are enough to complete the job. Your local home improvement store should have plenty of handy plumbing tools on hand. It may take you a little time to find all of the tools you need, but it’s worth the time spent. After all, when you’re replacing an entire shower, you will want to make sure you get everything you need, from the drain to the outlet.
There are many benefits to a brand-new installation of a replacement shower. A brand-new installation will come with a guarantee. That means you are going to be getting a shower replacement which will work exactly as it is described. This is definitely not something to take lightly. If the installation was poor, or the components were missing, you could be out the money you spent on the shower replacement.
One of the most important things you need to consider before getting a new shower replacement is how well the flooring is going to work with the tiles that are on the shower floor. You don’t want any gaps in the flooring which will allow water to seep through and possibly damage the tiles. Another thing to consider is how the floor will look in conjunction with the fixtures that are already present in the bathroom. Some people like the look of a tile floor with no fixtures at all, while other people want all of the available space to be used for towels or storage units. The thing to do is think about how your bathroom is used and decide which of the options you want to have.
Once you have decided on the type of shower replacement you want and you have located the supplier of the product, it’s time to find the right installer. Make sure you work with a company that has experience with the product you are buying. If you’ve never installed one of these products before, finding someone who is will be very important. The last thing you want is having something you can’t use because it simply wasn’t installed properly. If you find a good contractor, the chances are good they won’t recommend any other contractors for your bathroom remodel needs.
