Install a Prefab Shower
Amy Matthews: It’s no secret that adding a shower to a bathroom will increase the value of your home but if a tiled shower surround is too much for your budget, try adding a prefabricated shower. They cost just a few hundred dollars and can be installed in a weekend.
Male: Showers are the most popular and probably one of the biggest investments anyone can make in their bathroom these days.
Male 2: First we’re going to do is we’ll actually get the panels and we’re going to glue them up on the walls and then do the centerpiece here.
Amy Matthews: Using shower and tub adhesive, apply a thick bead around the edges of the panel then make an X, the size of the panel. Stick the panel to the wall pushing firmly and smooth it out with a rug or towel.
Male 2: All right, so the next we’re going to do is we’re going to measure this. We’re going to find the center on this; it comes in the bottom here.
Amy Matthews: Use a hole saw to make cuts in the panel for your control valve and any other plumbing then place the panel on the wall.
Male 2: All right, you want to wire up that for me?
Amy Matthews: Next, the corner piece or center track panel is installed. To provide a track for the glass door and panels, attach the metal base plate and side plates with more adhesives and screws. This provides a track for the glass panels and door.
Male 2: Once this dries and then we’re going to white silicone and everywhere if there is a seam, we’re going to come in here and we’re going to push that into the seams all the way around here. That’s going to make it absolutely wire type.
Amy Matthews: The glass panels are set into the metal plates and screwed into place. Finally, attach the top plate.
Male 2: It’s solid.
Amy Matthews: And secure the door.
Male 2: There’s your shower.
Female: It looks great!
Male 2: Fantastic.
Female: I’m ready to use it.
Amy Matthews: If you’re adding a new bathroom to your house or have an existing one that just needs a quick fix, installing a prefabricated shower is the way to go. I’m Amy Matthews from DIY Network’s Sweat Equity.
