DIY Shower Projects
Many homeowners want to remodel parts of the bathroom on their own rather than paying for a professional service to do the labor. With a little DIY experience, many projects are easily to tackle if you have the time and tools for the job.
Here are some of the most popular DIY shower projects and whether they are simple enough to tackle on your own.
Replacing the Shower
Many store bought shower units decay or age over time and simply need to be replaced, even when the rest of the bathroom is still fine. Typically you will need to at least two people to lift the shower and place it in the correct spot, but it can be done quickly without professional assistance.
Building a Custom Shower
Tiling your own shower is simple, but laying the shower drain and ensuring the area is waterproof is often best left for professionals. Any mistakes can ultimately cause damage to the surrounding tile and walls.
Only a few tools are necessary to replace shower hardware like faucets and shower valves, so it is an ideal thing to try for a DIY project around the home.
