One Piece Showers Offer Long-Term Value
August 31, 2017
If you’re remodeling your bathroom, make sure to consider the long-term value of all of the updates you make. One important area of your bathroom remodel should be your shower or bath. If you’re looking for a shower that will offer long-term value, look no further than a one-piece shower system.
What is a One-Piece Shower?
A one-piece shower is quite simply what it sounds like; a shower made of a single piece of material. Also known as a solid wall surround or a seamless shower system, these showers are custom measured and built to fit your shower’s space perfectly. The most common material used to create these systems will be acrylic as opposed to tile and grout.
When we talk about the lasting value of a home improvement, it’s not just about an object’s durability (and trust us, one-piece showers are durable) it’s also about performance. With a one-piece shower system, your home will be safe from leaks because there are minimal seams where leaks can happen. This means less repairs down the road as the tile’s grout starts to fail leading to costly, moldy repairs.
Easy for Home Re-sale
With homeowners increasingly looking for a maintenance-free home, the desire for one-piece shower systems is seeing a rise. This means when you’re remodeling your home for resale, you’ll definitely want to at least consider a solid shower surround. And if white acrylic isn’t your style there are hundreds if not thousands of shower liner styles available to make your new shower match your bathroom’s style.
A shower made of one piece is an inexpensive option when it comes to installation and materials costs. The materials themselves cost less than tile on average; and the installation takes less time so your bathroom remodeling company won’t have to charge you as much for labor during installation.
Easy to Maintain
The biggest long-term value to a one-piece shower is easy maintenance. It will not only look amazing; but you won’t have to get down and scrub all the grout between the tiles every month to ensure it stays looking nice. Not to mention, with minimal seams there will be much less of a chance for leaks which can lead to major, costly repairs.
