So, you’re thinking of replacing your shower system, but you’re worried about how long the process might take. That’s only natural. After all, your bathroom is one of the most-used rooms in the house, and having to brush your teeth and shower in a cramped guest bathroom while the new shower is installed can get old fast. The good news is the project timeline for a complete shower replacement is generally short—anywhere from two to five days. The exact duration depends on several factors.
Is the project you’re planning part of a full-scale bathroom remodel or a smaller shower system project? Full-scale remodels—those that include shower retiling, for instance—take longer. In situations like this, a contractor may need to remove the existing tile and patch holes before even embarking on tile installation. On the other hand, if you’re thinking of having your shower system replaced, even with shower doors or a new shower enclosure installed, your contractor may be able to finish the job within a couple of days. In short, the complexity of your project helps to determine its timeline.
The materials you choose for your new shower can also impact installation time. For example, heavier materials like marble or ceramic tiles require meticulous installation and a curing period, which lengthen the project duration. Whereas lighter materials, like antimicrobial wall surrounds, can be installed quickly—often in one day.
