Shower Pan Installation Your brand new shower system will only look good and function properly when it is installed correctly. Before starting your shower installation, find out if your existing plumbing is strong enough to handle the weight of your new pan. If you have existing shower pans, carefully slide the plumbing into place around your old shower walls and then secure the pan in place with a silicone caulk joint. If you have cement shower walls, make sure you fill in any gaps around the walls with mortar.

 

Shower Enclosure Cost: Shower enclosures are generally not extremely expensive. A basic model can range from two to six hundred dollars. Shower screens are another less expensive alternative. When choosing a shower screen, keep in mind the average cost of installing a screen in your typical bathroom shower stall. By installing a shower screen, you can save yourself up to three thousand dollars by avoiding the installation of an enclosure. Keep in mind that you can save even more money by installing your own prefabricated shower enclosure.

 

Bathroom Showers Prefabricated Showers: In the past, it was necessary to purchase a custom shower stall for larger showers. However, there are now prefabricated options that will fit most average size showers. The most common types of showers are fiberglass, acrylic and fiberglass. Fiberglass models can come pre-finished or unfinished, while acrylic and fiberglass models are shipped unfinished. You can also find custom molded acrylic shower pans.

 

One Piece Shower Enclosure: Prefabricated shower surrounds are available in both one piece and two-piece designs. One piece shower surrounds consists of a shower pan that fits over the drain. Shower pans made from fiberglass do not have a lip around the edge. This type of design is the least expensive of all three options. Two piece shower surrounds consist of a second pan that fits over the drain. Both of these designs cost between eight hundred and twelve hundred dollars, depending on which option you choose.

 

Shower Wall Finishes: All shower pan prices do not include the cost of the shower wall finish. These finishes vary between one hundred and four hundred dollars. Popular finishes include ceramic, textured bronze, pebble board, brass and chrome. The finish you choose will depend on your personal preference and the decor of the room you are installing the shower pan into.

 

Steam Shower Cost: When you add up all the shower pan costs, you might be surprised to find that the real shower screen costs are much less than the pan prices. This makes sense when you consider how much money you can save by installing a low pressure system that reduces water waste significantly. When you install a half bath instead of a full bath, you can save fifty percent or more on your water bill each month. If you do the math, installing a steam shower remodel makes sense for any homeowner.
