Shower Valve:  Who doesn’t love the comfort of a hot shower after a long day at work or tough work out with the team. The shower in a comfortable home is so refreshing you really can jeopardize the proper functions of the Shower Valve. Without proper water control you have no shower. If you cannot operate the water on and off properly you can hurt yourself. If you cannot properly control hot and cold shut off in the shower you can scold yourself or other family members. Think of the children in the home, seniors at home. Being able to shut your water off is so important I cannot stress it enough. The shower valve is an appliance that is constantly upgraded and redesigned. It is vital to have a plumber that is well versed in technology and new shower valve models. Many manufacturers change designs and models of shower valves regularly. Rebuilding an existing shower valve may seem like a good idea, and most cases is fine, but things change annually. Many shower valves are put in during the construction of the house and get very little attention thereafter.


Although changing the shower stem and seats seems like a great idea that’s cost effective; why not consider a new installation to upgrade the unit and provide up to date solutions for your home. Consider installing a new single handle Moen shower valve with changeable valve cartridges that are inexpensive and easy to reinstall. PHLA is well versed in these installations and will help you upgrade your system. Why rebuild a unit an get a few more months of function when you can get 5-10 years out of a fresh new installation.


Bath Tub: The bathroom is truly one of the most unique rooms in the modern home. When looking for a bath tub it is important to have the proper dimensions for your unique home. Tubs come in many styles. These unique specifications will determine how the walls of the bathroom are formed. Some bathtubs, stand alone, separate from the wall as its own appliance. Most common models are installed beneath the wall, and have a lever of drywall or tile overlapping the edge of the tub. Bath tub installation can be considered a remodel.

When installing a new tub, you really have no choice but to remove the drywall and open the walls to expose the wooden studs, 2x4s. There are also models they include the full shower wall.
