A do-it-yourself (DIY) shower remodel project may sound appealing. But you’ll only realize the amount of time, patience, and hard work it will take once you start the shower installation process.

Is a new shower installation or shower remodel on your mind? Read on if you’re unsure what’s better — a DIY project or hiring a professional contractor. We’ll help you make a better choice.

1. Cost

DIY bath install projects often appear affordable in the beginning. As days go by, you’ll need a few extra tiles, a couple of tools, grout, etc. You may end up spending a lot more than your initial estimate. If your plan includes complex renovation ideas, execution can also be challenging. Changes along the way can lead to rework and additional expenses. 

If you’re installing the shower yourself for the first time and find your work shoddy, you may consider hiring a professional to fix the shower. Overall, the project couldcost you much more than you envisioned. When you opt for a professional shower installer, on the other hand, you’ll have a near-final cost estimate right in the beginning. Despite what you initially thought, It may be more affordable in the long run. You can also plan the remodel to fit within your budget.

2.  Time

Depending on how many hours you spend each day on a DIY remodel project, your timeline may extend from a few days into months. The remodel can take even longer if you’re unfamiliar with how such DIY projects work. Mid-project changes and waiting for additional materials or tools can delay the project. Dealing with a messy or unusable space for an extended time could be a potential drawback.  .

A professional bath installer  will likely have your shower ready in a day or two. Bathroom remodeling contractors have all the necessary tools to complete the installation quickly. They’ll also do it right the first time.

3. Peace of Mind

A DIY bath install project that starts as fun and engaging can soon overwhelm you. Not having the right supplies handy can stress you out. You’ll need to plan and execute even the tiniest details, so you have a usable shower just as you imagined. But, despite all the planning and hard work, you may end up with a shoddy and messy space needing rework. The DIY shower installation project can become a nightmare.
