Ottawa Shower Remodel Service

Your bathroom is one of the most used rooms in your home. It’s where you go to wash off all the sunscreen from a long summer day down by the water or to warm up after a chilly skate along the Rideau Canal in the depths of winter. Your bathroom serves a functional, hygienic purpose while also—potentially—serving as a spa-like retreat. If you don’t feel like your bathroom fits the bill for one or both of these purposes, it may be time to consider getting an Ottawa shower remodel.

We’ll work closely with you to go over all the material and style options for your Ottawa shower remodel. To give you an idea about all the bathroom renovation options available to you, we’ve provided some factors worth considering below.

Shower Remodel Styles

Some of the styles we can install include:

  • Wheelchair shower

  • Freestanding showers

Not sure which style is best suited for your space? No problem! We’re happy to take a look and make some recommendations.

Shower Remodel Materials

Choosing materials such as tile for bathroom walls and tile flooring is one of the most exciting steps of the process for most Ottawa homeowners. For a luxurious element, marble floors provide incomparable visual appeal, while a room that gets a ton of natural light can benefit from wall tiles that are resistant to fading.

We offer plenty of options for rough materials and finish materials in virtually every color or pattern imaginable. Some popular choices for tile include:

  • Natural stone

  • Subway tiles

  • Ceramic tiles

  • Porcelain tile

  • Mosaic tile

  • Marble tiles

  • Other varieties of stone

Shower Remodel Materials

This is where you can add all the features and finish materials you need to achieve greater accessibility and comfort. Rain-style shower heads are a luxurious element, as are built-in shelves for soap and other bath and body products. Some additional features you may wish to consider include:

  • Rain shower head

  • Separate shower heads

  • Curtains

  • Seats and benches

  • Towel racks

  • Grab bars

  • And more!

Space maximization

Most bathrooms are relatively small spaces, considering you spend so much time in them. Bathrooms also require a lot of storage. If you want a more functional bathroom that meets your storage needs and includes a spacious shower, then a remodel may be for you. Removing and replacing bulky, oddly-placed showers can boost the functionality of your space more than you might even realize.


Something that more Ottawa homeowners are thinking about is the concept of aging-in-place. Maybe you want to live in your own home for as long as possible, or perhaps you have an elderly parent or parent-in-law that you’re considering moving in with you. An Ottawa shower remodel service is just what you need to update that narrow unit to a more accessible walk-in shower. Making your dream bathroom handicap-accessible will also improve your return on investment.

Maintenance reduction

Replacing an old acrylic unit with a new shower made from high-quality and durable materials will make cleaning your bathroom less of a chore. Water barriers can also be installed to prevent water damage, saving you from having to pay for costly repairs down the line.


It can be hard for some homeowners to justify a remodeling project for pleasure alone, but you deserve to have a relaxing space to retreat to after a hard day’s work. An Ottawa shower remodel can give you the luxury experience you’ve always dreamed of having. Your ideal bathroom doesn't have to be out of reach.

Is It Time For A Shower Remodel?

If you’re like other Ottawa homeowners, you’ve probably been mulling over the possibility of making updates to your bathroom for years. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to make changes but haven’t been able to justify the cost when there are so many other home improvement projects that you could spend your money on.

When homeowners decide to remodel their bathrooms, they don’t regret it (as long as it’s done with the help of a reputable and experienced bathroom remodeling company!). This is because a remodel has countless benefits, some of which include but are not limited to:

  • The number one question our customers ask us is how much they can expect their Ottawa bathroom remodel project to cost. We understand that cost is an important factor for all homeowners, no matter what your budget is. However, there’s a reason we provide free bathroom shower quotes—without seeing the state of your current bathroom and discussing what types of changes you want to make, it’s impossible to provide an average cost estimate.

    The average prices of bathroom remodel projects depend on several factors:

    • Project type. The larger and more complex your project or bathroom type is, the greater your bathroom renovation cost will be. The cost of bathroom fixtures is also worth factoring in.

    • Material type. Higher material quality will typically cost more, but also last longer. A high-end bathroom remodel, such as a luxury bathroom remodel with floor-to-ceiling tile, will have higher material costs.

    • Square foot. Larger bathrooms with larger remodels will cost more than a small shower conversion.

    • Labour cost. Our bathroom designers are highly trained. We strive to ensure that they’re paid fairly for the quality work they do while also ensuring that you receive exceptional value. You can rest assured that construction costs are not unfairly inflated.

    • Unexpected costs. If you need damage repair prior to installation, this will come at an additional cost.

    According to recent research, the national average return on investment for a bathroom renovation project is approximately 70 percent. To optimize your return on investment, opt for a neutral design.

  • The amount of time your remodel takes will, in part, depend on the scale of your project. Larger bathrooms can take longer to do, and the presence of sub-flooring or surface damage can add to the amount of time the project will take.

    That being said, we take pride in our ability to provide a one-day remodel service. To see if you and your project needs are eligible for this service, contact us for an in-person estimate.

  • The term ‘walk-in’ shower can sometimes confuse homeowners. After all, aren’t all showers walk-ins? Traditional free-standing stalls may be better described as ‘step-in’ showers, as you need to lift your feet to get inside of them. In contrast, a walk-in shower is almost like a room in and of itself. It is not a freestanding enclosed unit but is open and tiled.

    There may be a shower screen present on walk-ins to prevent water from spraying on other areas of your bathroom, but there are typically no shower doors. This makes them much easier to clean than a stall or ‘step-in’ shower. It also makes them a great choice for those with mobility challenges.

  • Investing in an Ottawa shower remodel service is a big step. It’s not something you do every day, and it’s probably something you want to do just once. It is therefore important that you do it right.

    The key to ensuring that your shower remodel fits your needs lies all in the planning. The more prepared you are, the more likely you are to end up with the shower of your dreams. Some of the considerations you should make before getting started include:

    • Determining your budget

    • Listing your wants and needs from highest to lowest priority

    • Thinking about the future—does it need to be accessible? If so, budget for grab bars in larger bathrooms.

    Our experts can help walk you through these considerations, but it helps to have some idea about what you want in advance.

  • As stated above, one of the best ways to save money on a shower remodel is by having a comprehensive plan in place before you start. Sometimes homeowners opt for a liner installation to save money, but we recommend against this. During a liner installation, the bathroom contractor will build a new shower overtop of your existing one. This is more of a band-aid solution that won’t give you as high of a return on your investment, and also won’t last.

    With a rip and replace shower installation (what we do!), you’ll have a much higher quality remodel at the end and a higher ROI. It may cost a little more upfront, but not by much. Going for the cheapest shower installation done by a non-certified contractor could end up costing you much more in the end.
