There is a vanity on one side and a walk-in shower with gray walls and a white-pink-beige shower curtain on the other.Is it time for a shower replacement project in your home? If you’re on the fence about whether or not you need to replace your shower, here are some of the key signs to look out for.

Cracked or Leaking Shower Base

The most obvious sign that it’s time to replace your shower is a leak or crack in your shower enclosure. This indicates that water is not being properly contained in your shower, which can be causing further water damage beneath the surface. To avoid more extensive damage to your home, it’s best to have your shower replaced in a timely manner.

Mold or Mildew Problems

Another problematic sign that may appear is constant mold or mildew growth in or around the shower. Not only is this a health and safety issue, but it’s a nuisance to be cleaning your shower all the time to keep mold at bay. This is typically a problem in older showers that have porous or deteriorating materials that simply continue to attract mold and mildew growth.

An Outdated Aesthetic

While you may not be dealing with any functional issues with your shower, an outdated shower enclosure can detract from the appearance of your entire bathroom. As the focal point in most bathrooms, your shower enclosure can impact the look and feel of the entire room. If your shower is looking worn down or otherwise past its prime, a shower replacement may be in store for you.
