Everything You Need to Know Before Remodeling Your Shower

Shower remodel

Who else dreams about their home’s next remodel project? If you’re anything like us, you sit up at night scrolling through Pinterest picking out the perfect fixtures for your new shower. After you finish the Pinterest board, your next step should be reading this blog post so you can familiarize yourselves with the cost and materials of a remodel.

How Much Does a Shower Remodel Cost?

Cost. It’s always the first question that gets asked, and that’s understandable. According to research done by Homelight, the national average cost for installing a new shower is $4,130, but the cost can range from $300 for a prefabricated kit that you install yourself, to $15,000 for a top-of-the-line walk-in, soaker tub combo.

Unfortunately, it’s impossible to give a specific answer right now because there are so many factors to consider when determining the cost of any remodeling or plumbing project.

The most important factors to consider include:

  • Size of the space being remodeled

  • The types of materials being used in the remodel

  • How much of the space needs to be completely gutted versus just updated

If there is any plumbing work that needs to be performed, we always recommend hiring a professional. A botched plumbing job could end up costing you thousands of dollars on fixing the job and repairing any water damage.

How Long Does a Shower Remodel Take?

After cost, the next concern on a homeowner’s mind is usually the amount of time it will take to finish their shower remodel. Once again, we can only give you a time range for a typical project. We estimate that our projects can be completed in as little as 2 days.

This range can be lengthened or shortened depending on the size, details, and features of your project. However, we understand that our customers want to be back in their showers sooner rather than later, so we try to expedite the process as much as possible without sacrificing quality.


At Korrect Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc., we understand the value of choosing quality materials, for remodel projects. This is why we use cultured marble to create customized walk-in-showers and bathtub walls. Cultured marble comes in a wide variety of marble and granite colors so you can choose the perfect look for the style you’re going for. We can even take your bathroom makeover up a notch by installing a custom vanity sink and countertop to compliment your new shower and tub.

Why choose cultured marble? Here are some of the main perks of this material:

  • It is durable, cost-effective, and requires very little maintenance

  • It comes in a wide range of colors

  • It can be shaped to fit your specific design

  • It is stain and chip resistant

  • It never requires sealing

  • It is easy to clean

When in doubt about your decision to remodel, just remember that according to the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, homeowners recoup 50% of their expenses if a remodel is tackled properly. The most important factors in the increase in value include modern fixtures and materials, maximizing the space, and adding functional features.
