- One Piece Shower Units – Since these units don’t fit through most doorways, they’re mostly used for new construction and are installed before framing on the house is finished.

- Acrylic – Made of a durable, nonporous plastic material that resists soap scum, hard-water build up, and mold. Acrylic is tougher than fiberglass and tends to last longer because the color is molded all the way through the surface. Although it is more expensive that fiberglass, it is still more affordable than other types of showers.
