Signs are easy to miss. This is why so many of us overlook exits we need to take and go the wrong way during road trips sometimes. Even when we're looking for them, signs can elude us!
Home improvements are sometimes the same way.
Many of us don't maintain or replace items in our home until it's too late, which can lead to additional expenses and frustrations. But if you know what to look for, you can address issues before they get too bad. Your shower is a great example of this. Here are four signs of shower problems that may warrant a shower replacement.
1. Chipping and Cracking
Some minor chipping and cracking is to be expected with showers over the years, due to normal wear and tear. But excessive cracking, chipping and peeling can be a sign of a bigger issue. Shower bases in particular are prone to chips or cracks in the finish. Once cracks become too large (or chipping starts to cover a large area), it's an indication that your shower might be on its last legs and will start to leak soon (if it isn't already).
Speaking of leaks, this is another big sign that your shower needs to be replaced (potentially). If you notice pooling around the base of your shower or other puddles (inside or outside of the shower) that don't seem to dry, it may be due to a problem in your shower basin. These are not easily repaired and are best solved with a shower replacement.
3. Stains and Discoloration
Stains in your shower aren't necessarily a functional problem, but they can look unsightly. If your shower is discolored in some way, it can be annoying or embarrassing, especially if the bathroom is accessible to guests. If thorough cleaning with chemicals doesn't remove the stain or discoloration, it might be time to replace the shower entirely.
4. Dated Appearance
Finally, your shower may just look "old." Whether due to its styling or any of the issues mentioned above, an ugly shower will not revitalize the senses. You want your bathroom to feel like a relaxing oasis, which is why upgrading to a more modern and convenient shower can give your entire bathroom new life. Extra shower heads, more space … these benefits await with a shower replacement.
