Average Cost of Shower Replacement
Each provider has their own pricing. So it’s not possible to tell you how much you’ll expect to pay for a replacement. But you can learn about the ‘average’ price range with this handy checklist below.
These numbers were collected using the Home Design Directory calculator. By telling them the size of your bathroom, size of tiled area, and your average budget for bathroom and shower fittings – you can choose from a Basic, Standard and Premium price range to suit your needs.
To save you time, here are the basic numbers for any sized bathroom:
- Tiles – $15 to $45 per square meter
- Shower Rail – $30 to $500
- Towel Rail – $3 to $300
- Exhaust Fan – $20 to $800
- Shower Enclosure – $500 to $1,200
Keep in mind these numbers don’t account for the cost of labour. So based on the provider you can expect to pay around $50 to $85 or more per hour. This covers the cost of many services like installing new fittings, tiling, shower sealing, re-grouting, and if needed extra plumbing services.
