3 Reasons To Have a Shower Professionally Installed

Benefits of professional shower installation

Any work that is done in a bathroom can wreak serious havoc on your plumbing system if completed improperly. Like with all renovations, it is crucial to ensure a shower renovation is done thoughtfully and thoroughly. People have many reasons for installing a new shower, including wanting a more modern and relaxing space to wash in the mornings before work or in the evenings prior to sleep, or wanting to reduce their household’s water and energy usage. Here are three reasons you should call plumbing services in Kelowna to install your shower. 

1. For Functionality

If your new shower does not function properly, there is no reason to have installed it in the first place. A trained and certified specialist can not only ensure that your new tub and shower work as intended but can install other functional items as well, such as:

  • Luxury showerheads with features such as pressure control and the ability to remove the device from the wall 
  • Shelves and caddies that are built directly into the wall of the shower, where people can store items such as shampoo and body wash
  • A steam component that can give your bathroom a spa-like atmosphere 
  • Water jets that shoot off from the sides of your shower in addition to the showerhead 

Unlike when you install an appliance by yourself, professionals usually come with a guarantee that promises that any work they do in your home is up to standards. 

2. For Customization

When you have a shower professionally installed, you can rest assured that the tub will fit within the dimensions of your bathroom and work seamlessly with your plumbing system. If you need a shower that is handicap accessible, we can install one with any of the following:

  • Handlebars on the sides of the tub for someone to hold
  • An entrance that is wide enough for a wheelchair, and is that flush with the floor, preventing the need to step over a tub wall
  • A nonslip floor to make the shower safer 
  • Temperature controls that are located away from the stream of water 

In addition to any needed accessible features, you can also customize the colour, size, and materials of your shower. For example, some people might prefer the sleek look of a standing shower with glass walls, while others might prefer the more traditional set-up of a tub and curtain. Either way, a professional can work with you to install a shower that lives up to your expectations. Having a wide variety of choices ensures that you can find a shower that fits your bathroom as well as the rest of your home. 

3. For Energy Efficiency

Older showers, along with appliances such as washing machines and dishwashers, tend to use a lot of water and make your utility bills unnecessarily high. By having a new shower professionally installed, you can now take more energy-efficient showers and lower your water bill without compromising any of the features that you want in a shower.

Some energy-efficient showers can save up to 50% of the water used by older brands that are not energy-efficient. Ways to make showers more environmentally friendly include installing a low-flow showerhead and adjusting your own actions, such as taking shorter showers and showering rather than taking a bath. However, your shower of any length will have less of an environmental impact if your new shower comes installed with a low-flow showerhead. 

If these three reasons are enticing enough for you to want to install a new shower, contact Handyman Connection today. Our professionals will ensure that you are satisfied with any bathroom repairs or installations you ask us to make.
