The shower stall is like everything else in your home and is prone to wear and tear. When it is brand new, it seems like it will last forever. The new solid fiberglass, gel coated shower is so pleasing to the eye but for only a couple of years before it finally wears out. Tear and wear could start off by a worn out spot around the waste and overflow drain to something extreme like your foot going through the bottom of the stall. Homeowners could also fancy changing the shower unit because it’s no longer attractive to the eye or because of a newer and more attractive design available in the market today.
