Shower installation costs $1,000 to $8,000 for a prefab shower stall and $3,500 to $15,000 for a custom walk-in tile shower.
A shower remodel increases home value and modernizes the space. Bathroom renovations typically provide a 55% to 70% return on investment (ROI). A tub or shower remodel is among the top three bathroom remodeling projects with the highest ROI.
Bathroom remodeling contractors install showers with the help of local plumbers. Depending on the shower remodel project, a specialized tile installer, electrician, or glazier may also be required.
Installing a new shower is a complex project that requires plumbing experience and specialized tools. Replacing an existing shower with a prefab stall may be manageable as a DIY project, but new shower installation needs a professional. Incorrect installation may result in water leaks and damage.
Installing a new shower takes three to seven days on average. Old shower demolition and surface prep adds 1 to 2 days.
