Do you Need a Permit to Replace Your Shower?

Replacing a Shower Without a Permit

For many homeowners, the cost of remodeling a bathroom can come as a bit of a shock, leading them to look for ways to save money on their projects. Simply remodeling the wet area of the bathroom, such as the shower, can be a great way to reduce costs and still get fantastic results. Still, some homeowners wonder if there is a way to lower the price even further by having the work completed without a permit. So, do you need a permit to replace a shower?

Permitting requirements vary depending on where you live. However, typically any plumbing relocations needed as part of a shower replacement will require a permit. It is essential that you research any local permitting guidelines and carefully adhere to them. Failing to do so may make it difficult to sell your home in the future. You may have to completely redo the project with proper permits, resulting in a much higher cost than if it had been completed correctly the first time.

Why You Should Always Hire a Licensed & Insurance Bathroom Remodeling Company

When you replace your shower without a permit, there is more at stake than simply failing to meet local building requirements. If you move forward with a shower replacement without obtaining proper permits, it likely means you either intend to do the project yourself or have hired an unlicensed contractor. This is almost never a good idea. The best way to ensure that your shower replacement project is completed correctly is to hire a licensed and insured contractor.

Your bathroom remodeling contractor should be well versed with local building and permit requirements and should be able to handle the entire permitting process for you. This also means that the project will undergo an independent inspection, ensuring that it is up to code. Additionally, a licensed contractor will have insurance, which is critically important. If an uninsured contractor is injured in your home, you may be held liable.
