Can you fit a shower in one day?
It’s rare at Premier Care we can fit a walk-in shower in one day – this will usually only be possible if we’re simply replacing your existing shower, with all the plumbing and electrics already in place. To replace shower trays, enclosures and make good your bathroom, it does take longer. On average, our expert installation team takes 3-4 days to fit a walk-in shower.
At Premier Care, we understand that installation time is an important consideration before committing to any bathroom upgrades. No one wants to be locked out of the bathroom for weeks on end – so before deciding on a walk-in shower, you’ll want to have an idea of how long it will take to install.
Equally, before committing to any bathroom upgrades, you should have an idea of what the installation process entails. Upgrading your bathroom is a major decision – you need all the necessary information at your fingertips before moving forward. Many installers will promise the world without possessing the proper expertise; a poorly built walk-in shower can lead to all sorts of problems. Read on, as we detail everything you need to know about installing walk in showers.
How long does it take to install a walk-in shower?
The installation time of a walk-in shower will depend on several factors – and several questions must be answered before determining how long your walk-in shower will take to fit. Your plumbing might need alterations or upgrades; there may be tiles, design features or other extras to install; plus, some of our showers are slightly more straightforward to install than others.
To get a better idea of installation time, why not book an obligation-free consultation with one of our expert advisors? We can discuss all the issues, and then give you an accurate estimate on installation time.

What if other companies have promised they can complete the installation in a day?
We advise customers to exercise caution when companies promise express installations – especially if they make guarantees before completing a thorough survey of the bathroom in question. Before engaging anyone to perform bathroom upgrades, you should be confident that they have the necessary expertise. Lots of builders will claim they can install walk-in showers quickly – but without the proper training, will struggle to provide a professional finish.
Haste often makes waste: at Premier Care, we understand that a rushed installation can lead to a dissatisfying bathing experience and years of frustration. Accordingly, we only employ experts to install our bathrooms: all our installers are fully qualified and undergone individual internal assessments. They never rush – and always endeavour to provide a thorough, meticulous bathroom build.
What are the risks of a shoddily built walk in shower?
A poorly built walk-in shower can cause discomfort, compromise safety, and create maintenance issues. Once you understand the myriad problems that can arise from poor installation, the importance of employing experts becomes clear. Many installers fail to properly level floors – causing improper drainage and maybe a buildup of water in the bathroom. Likewise, if the shower head and tray aren’t properly installed, there may well be water leakage throughout the bathroom. Inexperienced installers may give improper advice or complete the job without fully considering the consequences of their work. You might feel you’re saving money or time by opting for an independent contractor – but a poorly built walk-in shower can leave you frustrated and end up costing more in the long run.

Instead, we offer a bespoke, fully inclusive service – looking after the design, supply, and installation of your bathroom. By handling every step of the process, ourselves, we can guarantee a properly installed quality product.
