For anyone in the area looking to really take their home to the next level, few projects can be as transformative as a successful Saratoga shower installation project. Since our team is one of the best choices around for Saratoga shower installation projects, we wanted to share these five keys to getting the shower installation of your dreams to help customers like you get pointed in the right direction.

Avoid DIY
Shower installation projects are no simple task for anyone that doesn’t have the requisite training or experience.

We strongly recommend avoiding trying to install the shower yourself, as we’ve seen a lot of folks get bogged down in unexpected challenges or notice problems only after the installation is finished. Such problems can be extremely challenging to resolve without reworking most or all of the installation.

Instead, work with a well-qualified professional who can get the job done quickly and professionally without unexpected bumps in the road.

Choose your help wisely
When choosing a professional to work with for your shower installation, it’s extremely important that you choose a well-qualified home improvement plumber. At Performance Plumbing, we have high standards in this area thanks to our industry insider knowledge, so we have several recommendations you can consider.

First, make sure the plumber you work with has a strong reputation online. Avoid plumbers who have a lot of negative reviews on Yelp, or not enough reviews to know whether or not their past customers were happy or unsatisfied.

Second, make sure the plumber is licensed and insured. This will indicate that they are a professional team who takes your property seriously by providing extra evidence of professionalism and property protection.

Finally, make sure they’ve done a lot of shower installation projects in the past. It’s best to make sure you’re working with someone experienced in the services you need, rather than someone who has never performed such an installation before.

At Performance Plumbing, our team checks all of the boxes above, so we strongly recommend you don’t choose anyone with a lower set of standards.

Gather examples and discuss your situation
Once you know who you’re going to be working with, do some homework ahead of time to be prepared to discuss your project needs and preferences.

Hop online and find examples of shower installations that you like, keeping in mind the area that you’re working with, who will be using the shower, the styling in that room and the house overall, and other similar aspects of your specific situation.

When you’ve got a handful of examples, you can get in touch with your plumber to discuss the project having already prepared an idea of what you want. A good plumber like our team at Performance Plumbing will be happy to talk through your options, including pros and cons of specific designs and materials.

Request a breakdown of costs ahead of time
When you’re ready to get started with your shower installation project, give us a call or send us an email. Our friendly team of plumbers is always happy to help customers like you, and we’re also happy to provide a breakdown of all of the costs before any work begins.
