What Are the Different Types of Showers That Exist?
There are three different types of showers that are popular in the United States today: standalone showers, combination shower/bathtubs, and steam showers. The type of shower that is experiencing problems will directly affect the cost of repair.
Combination showers are the least complicated to repair and therefore the least expensive. Steam showers have a very complex plumbing system, so they tend to cost a little bit more to repair. Whatever type of shower you have, rest assured that we are equipped to fix it.
What Are Signs Your Shower Needs Repairs?
When it comes to pipes and plumbing, there is the potential for problems to occur. The most common plumbing related problems we see with showers are clogged drains and leaking faucets.
Leaking faucets and pipes are a bigger problem than many homeowners initially think; any leaking water can damage the home, even in rooms that are built to withstand high humidity like the bathroom. You can usually tell there is a leak if you hear running water even after you turn off the shower.

What Are the Benefits of Professional Services for Your Shower?
Clogged drains are usually easy to fix yourself by removing hair from the surface, but sometimes debris can flow down into the pipes and cause a bigger problem. Clogged drains are a common plumbing problem; professional drain cleaning gets rid of any debris and restore your pipes to a new like state, which will help prevent clogs from building up in the future.
You also benefit from the knowledge of an expert; if there is a bigger problem present, a plumber will be able to point it out to a homeowner that may not know how to detect more complicated issues. Relying on the experience and knowledge of a professional removes the guesswork from the intricate system of plumbing.
