    FAQs on Installing a Shower

    The cost of installing a shower can vary widely based on several factors. These include the type of shower you choose (basic, custom, or luxury), the complexity of the installation process, the materials used, and local labor rates. 

    On average, a basic shower installation may cost around $1,000 to $3,000. Custom or more intricate installations could range from $3,000 to $5,000 or more. Luxury showers with premium materials and features could exceed $10,000. It’s essential to consider expenses such as plumbing modifications, fixtures, tiling, and labor costs when estimating the overall project cost. Geographical location plays a role, as labor and material costs can differ from one area to another. 

    Consulting with professional plumbers and contractors for detailed quotes based on your specific needs and preferences is recommended to get an accurate estimate of shower installation costs.

    Installing a shower involves multiple steps to ensure a successful and functional outcome. Here’s a simplified step-by-step guide:

    • Prepare the Area: Clear the space and ensure the plumbing connections are in place. Install a shower pan or base if necessary.
    • Attach the Drain: Connect the drain assembly to the shower pan, ensuring a watertight seal.
    • Install Backer Board: Affix moisture-resistant backer board to the walls using screws, creating a solid surface for tiling.
    • Tile the Walls: Apply thin-set mortar and attach tiles to the walls, starting from the bottom and working upwards. Allow them to set.
    • Tile the Floor: Tile the shower floor using suitable tiles and mortar.
    • Install Fixtures: Attach the showerhead, faucet controls, and any additional fixtures according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
    • Grout the Tiles: Apply grout between the tiles and wipe away excess, allowing it to cure.
    • Apply Sealer: Seal the grout and tiles to prevent water infiltration and mold growth.
    • Connect Plumbing: Connect the water supply lines and test for leaks.
    • Final Touches: Apply caulk along seams, install the shower door if applicable, and ensure everything is properly aligned and functional.

    It’s important to note that shower installation can be complex, and DIY attempts might lead to mistakes. Engaging professional plumbers and contractors can ensure a proper installation that meets safety standards and delivers a long-lasting, functional shower.

    Using PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) pipes for shower plumbing is generally not recommended for the water supply lines or the drain system within the walls. While PVC is a common material for drainage systems due to its corrosion resistance and affordability, it has limitations for water supply lines.

    PVC pipes are not approved for use with hot water lines due to their potential to soften and deform at higher temperatures. For shower supply lines, it’s advisable to use materials like copper or PEX (Cross-linked Polyethylene), which are specifically designed for hot and cold water plumbing. PEX offers flexibility and durability, making it a suitable choice for shower installations.

    It’s essential to adhere to local plumbing codes and regulations when selecting materials for your shower plumbing. Consulting with a professional plumber can help you make informed decisions and ensure the use of appropriate materials for your specific needs while maintaining the safety and longevity of your plumbing system.

    Installing a shower requires several plumbing components to ensure proper functionality and water flow. Here are the essential plumbing elements needed for a shower installation:

    • Water Supply Lines: Hot and cold water supply lines are crucial for regulating water temperature. Copper or PEX pipes are commonly used for this purpose.
    • Shower Valve: A shower valve controls the flow and temperature of water. It’s connected to the water supply lines and is often installed within the wall behind the shower.
    • Drain System: The shower drain system includes a drain pan or base, drain assembly, and pipe that connects to the main drain line.
    • Trap and P-Trap: The trap prevents sewer gas from entering the bathroom and helps maintain proper drainage by holding water in the trap.
    • Ventilation: Proper ventilation, often through a vent pipe connected to the main plumbing stack, prevents airlocks and ensures efficient drainage.
    • Backflow Prevention: To prevent contamination of the water supply, a backflow prevention device might be required, depending on local regulations.
    • Shutoff Valves: Individual shutoff valves for hot and cold water supply lines allow for maintenance or repairs without disrupting the entire water supply.
    • Pressure Balancing Valve (Optional): This valve maintains consistent water temperature even when other water sources are used in the home.

    It’s important to comply with local plumbing codes and enlist the services of a professional plumber to ensure that the necessary plumbing components are installed correctly and safely.


    What Our Clients in Maryland are Saying

    I was experiencing a plumbing emergency and discovered ACW Service, Inc. from searching online. The timing was perfect because my call was answered immediately and Brian was two minutes from my house; he was able to stop by and provide an estimate within minutes of receiving the call. The work was completed in an extremely timely manner, which prevented further damage from occurring. If you’re looking for a plumbing company with great customer service and quality work, you won’t be disappointed with Brian or Zach!

    Brian was a wonderful representative of the company. Upon reaching out to ACW, he made recommendations on what type of faucet we should get to replace our old one and where we could get it. He set us up for an appointment for Monday. While our particular sink situation didn't need immediate attention at first, it turned into a larger issue and necessitated a more immediate response. Brian was able to squeeze us in earlier than we had scheduled, which we greatly appreciated. He was prompt, professional, and installed our new faucet within the hour. We're even considering using them for a bathroom remodel in the future. Highly recommend working with this company if you're unsure on who to choose.
    Brian was amazing and came out late at night to help us diagnose our clogged septic line and returned first thing in the morning to snake the line for us and repaired some shotty plumbing work from a previous owner. Great work and very professional and punctual! Thanks Brian!
    Chris Glisson
    Amazing company! I called to have the toilet in my master bathroom replaced. ACW came out the next day and completed the job. Excellent customer service and the price was very competitive. We will definitely use them again for our plumbing needs.
    Wanda Jones
    Brian was responsive and very helpful in Guiding me on what kind of faucet to purchase. He arrived in time and did excellent work for a reasonable cost. I would definitely use him again for future plumbing needs.
    Shannon Kelley
    Very fast response to my inquiry. They were very thorough and professional with the assessment and repaired the problem same day. Would use them again and highly recommend their service.
    Vince Contreras
    ACW was fantastic to work with. They came out and gave me a quick and easy to comprehend assessment of what they believed was wrong and what the fix would be. Once I accepted the quote, the part was ordered (new water pressure valve) and installed with about 3 to 4 business days. They were extra careful to not cause major repair work to the drywall in my theater room which was where the valve was. I couldn't have been happier with the the change in water pressure in our home. Im extremely grateful for companies like ACW and would definitely recommend them for your home.
    Darrione Nall
    Very amazing service. Came out on time and got right to work. I provided my own Faucet and they installed with no issues and gave me great recommendations. The pricing was good as well !!!

    Review of ACW Service Inc.

    When I discovered that my utility room flooded due to a leaking hot water heater, I called ACW and they answered my call! It was 9:30 at night, freezing cold, with snow and ice on the roads. Brian arrived within an hour. He was very helpful and knowledgeable. He explained the situation and provided options for me to consider. He did not try to sway me to purchase a new hot water heater, but I decided to replace mine because it was my 20+ years old. The cost was very reasonable. Brian worked quickly to stop the leaking without turning off the water to the house. He patiently answered all of my questions. He returned bright and early the next morning, and by lunchtime he had installed the new hot water heater. He made sure the water was running in the kitchen and bathrooms before leaving, and he was respectful of my home. ACW and Brian turned a stressful situation into a great experience with the excellent service they provided.
