shower pan...

livvyandbellaSeptember 16, 2013

I am currently getting estimates for a shower I am installing. We are removing the tub, and putting in a shower. What is the best pan in the shower, rubber or copper? One contractor will be putting in a copper pan, and it seems to be quite a bit more money. So not sure on what way to go.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Copper isn't used alot because it requires special skills that very few have. The copper pan is likly indication of other superior material and installation such as lath and plaster instead of sheet goods behind the tile on walls. If both estimates are for same material other than pans,go with rubber. You need to clearly understand what you are getting on each estimates.
