Modern prefab shower stalls come in acrylic of fiberglass. Their name itself – prefabricated shower stalls tells much. They really are manufactured as the complete unit to install in your bathroom.
Such units include wall board and plywood on the otherside, thus these stalls are absolutely easy to mount. However, if you plan to do start a do-it-yourself project installing the prefab shower enclosure alone, it will be quite an impossible task.
Ask your family members or your friends to help you. Naturally – prefabricated units with walls and whatnot are very heavy.
The other thing which can be a challenge is the correct installation of the unit. When prefabricated shower cubicles are installed incorrectly, it may start peeling away from the bathroom walls.
Therefore start to install such a shower yourself only if you are really sure how to do the stuff. If not – hire a contractor. As a rule, prefabricated shower enclosures installation costs times less than the labour for custom shower mounting.
When you trust yourself and your friends or family who will help you with the prefab shower cubicle installation, it will save much money.
The unit itself costs less than a custom shower, and the work you have to do when installing this unit is not so difficult. The time which will be spent on the project is also very short. Although the prefabricated shower will not last for ages, it will satisfy your family needs in the nearest several years.
