Shower base

There are few things that can be as refreshing and relaxing at the same time as taking a shower. Showers and bathtubs come in all different shapes, sizes and styles. Shower walls and floors can be made out of different materials. Most American shower bases are made out of ceramic tiles, marble, acrylic or fiberglass.

Fiberglass shower bases are popular and are used in many homes. A fiberglass shower base is all one large piece, making it relatively simple to install. Fiberglass rarely leaks, and is inexpensive.

Generally, fiberglass shower bases do not last as long as acrylic or marble ones. However, once they do wear out the fiberglass shower bases are inexpensive to replace. Fiberglass is not very heavy, so it is also easier to transport than some of the other types of shower bases.

The low cost of fiberglass shower bases, and the fact that they are relatively simple to work with make them popular with contractors. Oftentimes contractors will recommend fiberglass to their customers. Homeowners who like to do their own remodeling also choose fiberglass often. Get more info here.

    We have ceramic tile in our shower, and a couple of the tiles are broken. My husband is not very handy, so now we have to hire someone to fix it.

    We have had the same fiberglass shower base in our upstairs bathroom for 15 years now without any problems. Maybe some are just better quality than others?
