What do you need to know about disabled bath or shower installation?
Disabled baths and showers can be an important part of independent living for the elderly or disabled. There are a few options to consider, from walk in baths to wet rooms, so it is a good idea to speak to a specialist and have your situation assessed. This kind of discussion and getting a quote are generally free of charge - you can even do it over the phone. Your supplier may offer installation services, or you may be able to have a brand recommended to you by an installer used to working with disabled access projects. Consider your personal needs carefully before selecting a brand.
The price of the installation will depend on a few factors: what type of unit are you using? Will any plumbing need to be done or pipes relocated? Again, it is important to have the job professionally assessed before you make a hire to avoid unforeseen complications. The average cost of having a shower or bath installed will usually be around £400, depending on the amount of work needed and your location in the UK. As the work has the potential to damage parts of your bathroom if done incorrectly, ensure that your tradesmen are fully qualified and experienced, and that they are adequately covered against accidental damage and liabilities.
