Acrylic or fiberglass showers are sometimes damaged by cracks or holes. Replacement is the best option when your tub or shower deteriorates, but it's also a costly one. If you're not ready to replace the entire shower, you can install a new shower liner. This lets you extend the life of your shower by years or even decades.

An acrylic or PVC plastic shower liner is made to fit into your shower, and it can be installed in a few hours by a qualified contractor. To prepare for the installation, remove old fixtures and drain fittings so that the shell can be inserted. The shower liner is sealed using silicone adhesive and two-sided tape. Finally, the new overflow, drain and fixtures are installed.
The cost of installing a shower liner can vary based on many factors. The type of material, acrylic or PVC, is a major factor. The size of the shower is another factor, with larger spaces costing more than smaller ones. The necessary hardware for the job includes connectors, fittings and mounting hardware, which should be included in your estimate. Other factors include the type of adhesive used for the installation. If a lot of labor is involved in the preparation of the shower liner, the cost can also be affected.
Installing a shower liner requires specialized knowledge of plumbing and hardware. If the liner isn't properly sealed, you could end up with an expensive leak. The caulking around the new liner must be carefully applied, as missed spots can also lead to leakage. A qualified professional can help homeowners to avoid these issues and any new problems that could arise.
