If you are thinking about replacing your shower system at home, it is only natural to think about how long it will take to complete the project. After all, the bathroom is one of the most frequently used rooms in your home. The good news is that the timeline for shower replacement is generally short — between two to five days. The exact duration, however, depends on a few factors.
South Shore Dream Bath discusses some of the considerations here.
A full-scale bathroom remodel certainly takes longer to finish than a shower system renovation. During a full-scale remodel, a contractor may need to remove the existing tile flooring and patch holes before proceeding with the installation of other fixtures. On the other hand, a contractor may be able to finish a shower system replacement even with a new shower enclosure upgrade within a couple of days.
The materials you choose for the shower replacement also affect the duration of the project. For instance, heavier materials like ceramic and marble do not only require careful installation, but they also need a curing period, which extends the timeline of the work. Meanwhile, lighter materials like acrylic wall surrounds can be installed in a quicker fashion, usually in one day.
