INSULATION - We will insulate (if necessary) the walls and ceiling to make sure that your new shower will retain the heat.
PLUMBING - ELECTRICAL The next steps to be taken. The steam unit must have a dedicated line to power the unit and an exhaust fan will need to be installed and vented outside. The new shower drain most often needs to be moved to compensate for the shower bench. The shower valves and plumbing are installed.
