Calling on a plumber to install a shower

Do you need to change your showerhead or install a whole new shower? If you have good manual skills, you might think about doing the work yourself. However, it’s always a good idea to take extra precautions when embarking on any renovation project.

To avoid problems related to leaks or possible water damage, call on the services of a plumber for a professional installation.

The promise of a job well done

While installing a shower may seem simple to you at first glance, you should be aware that it must be done according to very strict standards for the manufacturer warranty to be valid. This is a guarantee of protection because, in the event of water damage or some other major problem, insurance companies may deny your claim if you’re unable to demonstrate that your installation complies with current regulations.

It’s better not to run the risk: only an experienced plumber can guarantee work performed in accordance with best practices and standard safety procedures.

Choosing a shower: opt for high quality

You’ve decided to refresh your bathroom and now you’re ready to choose your new shower! This is a major step, so it’s important to take your time. By choosing a high-quality model, you ensure that your shower will last for many years to come. In the end, you won’t regret making the investment.

Specialized manufacturers: your greatest allies

To ensure that you get expert advice and a high-quality product, it’s best to turn to a specialized manufacturer. You should particularly avoid showers sold in department stores, as the caliber of the materials can vary widely.

For example, the acrylic used in a shower purchased from a specialized outlet will be more durable because of its thickness. The finish will also be of better quality. Likewise, if you purchase a shower door from a specialized shop, it will be made of real glass and will have a very sturdy frame made of stainless steel for added longevity.

In the event of a problem, a good-quality product is always easier to repair. Investing in a top-notch model from the start will also ensure your peace of mind!

Shower installation: finding the right plumber

Now that you’re convinced of the importance of turning to the services of a professional to handle the installation of your new shower, you’re probably wondering how to go about finding a skilled, experienced plumber to do the work.

Here are some tips to help you find that rare gem of a plumber:

  • Verify that the plumber holds the appropriate licenses and certifications
  • Consult the Corporation of Master Pipe Mechanics of Quebec (CMMTQ) directory
  • Make sure that the plumber has shower installation experience
  • Check on the plumber’s training and experience and ask for references
