If you’ve recently purchased a luxurious walk-in tub or fiberglass tub and shower model for your bathroom, you may be wondering how to install it in your home. With a project this ambitious, it’s best to seek professional guidance, especially if you don’t have prior DIY experience. However, if you’re determined to try it on your own, it’s vital to take special care.
Wearing protective gear and double-checking any measurements, such as your bathroom dimensions can help you avoid costly mistakes later on. Although fiberglass bathtubs are lightweight and therefore easier to install compared to other types, cutting corners can lead to leaks and moisture buildup if you make small mistakes.
Since installing a fiberglass tub and shower combination can be difficult if you don’t have the right tools or experience for the job, it’s important to take your time and ask for aid if you need it. A fiberglass tub is a costly investment, so keeping it in good shape is essential to prolong its lifespan.
