Curb-less shower on existing concrete slab

Hi All,

I keep being told that pulling out a curbed shower and going with a curbless shower on an existing concrete slab is "more expensive". My question is, approximately how much more expensive should I expect this to be???

RE: Curb-less shower on existing concrete slab

It depends on your location. The slab has to be jackhammered and resurfaced. If it's thick enough to begin with. Otherwise, that whole section has to come out and then a new one poured and tied into the rest of the slab. That could cost a couple of hundred dollars from a contractor who already owns the right tools and has done this several times and doesn't run into any unknowns. Or it could cost a couple of thousand if you have someone who has to rent the tools, hasn't done it before, and runs into problems that aren't apparent at first glance..
