Shower Replacement Vs Installing a New Tub

Are you in the market for a new shower replacement, but are having trouble locating an attractive and functional product? Don’t worry. There are countless options available to you. For example, perhaps you’re looking at the outdated shower curtain. If this is your case, then you’ll be happy to know that there are numerous inexpensive options for you to choose from.

There’s no doubt about it: your bathroom is one of the most important rooms in your home. It serves many functions and is used on a regular basis. Therefore, it only makes sense to invest in high quality fixtures and plumbing to make your shower replacement experience enjoyable. If you have already taken the initiative and purchased a tub, it’s time to think about upgrading to a shower fixture.

Regardless, of whether you opt for an in-room shower replacement or the all-inclusive custom design option, be sure to work with a qualified Las Vegas bathroom remodeling company to complete your project. Some bathroom remodelers are only licensed to perform in-room installations, while others are able to take even the most difficult shower installation and turn it into a joyous and functional upgrade for your bathroom. Whatever route you take, it’s important to find a remodeler that has years of experience in this area of remodeling. Otherwise, your investment will be a waste of time and money.

If you choose to get a shower fixture that requires a completely separate installation, then you need to find a plumber that can handle this particular job. Many fixtures require a shower renovation professional to install them, as they are typically large pieces of machinery. This means that the plumbing professional will need to be employed in order to install the plumbing, as well. Even if the tub is not installed directly by the plumber, he or she will still need to know how to repair the pipes, since they may need to be repaired during or after the removal of the tub.

The most common reason for installing a replacement bathtub or shower is due to old age of the shower components. In fact, many bathrooms have outdated shower systems that are in desperate need of replacement. However, when the shower system is too old, the cost to replace it often outweighs the benefit of installing a brand new system. Even when installing a new shower system, a professional bathroom remodeler will first inspect the existing shower components in order to make sure that there are no damages that would require major bathroom remodeling in the future.

If you opt to get a completely new tub instead of a shower installation, the same basic rules apply. Make sure the plumbing is sound, as clogged plumbing can lead to leaks and other problems. Next, the plumbing professional will likely install new shower heads, which will include everything from shower arms to floor fixtures. Finally, the new tub will need to be caulked, and painted, as well as sealed and capped for added protection. A plumber will be able to provide all necessary information on how to take care of your new tub, including how to avoid future problems with the plumbing.
