Shower installation in Stevenage, Hertfordshire

LH Gas were asked by an existing customer to provide a quotation for a bathroom renovation. We had installed a heating system for them in the past and because they found our work so professional and reliable, they decided they wanted to give us the opportunity.

Our customers were undecided on how to best design the bathroom. One aim was to maximize the space while keeping in mind all the requirements of a family. With years of experience in bathroom design, LH Gas suggested a walk-in shower which would suit their requirements perfectly.

Once our quotation was accepted, the sanitary ware and tiles were selected and ordered. LH Gas provide a complete service, so we arranged a skip to be delivered at the address just before we started work.


In plumbing terms, the first stage of a bathroom renovation is called the “rip-out.” All the decommissioned plumbing, sanitary ware and tiles were removed and placed in the skip.

The second stage was to flatten walls and introduce the hot and cold water pipes into their new relevant positions. Since we were moving the WC, the soil pipe was moved and finally central heating pipes fitted, ready for the new towel rail.

We then installed a new 6mm ply floor cover and a low profile shower tray. After plastering, the shower wall was tiled from floor to ceiling and a splash back tiled for the basin area. The floor was finished with porcelain tiles and the remaining walls painted using a specialist waterproof bathroom paint.

After the decoration, the next stage of plumbing started. Towel radiator, shower, basin and close-coupled WC were all installed and to complete the high-end luxury look, we installed a bespoke shower screen with profile and wall / ceiling support.

Our customers were overwhelmed with the results of the renovation and said they would always highly recommend the LH Gas team in the future.
