Showerwall’s Find a Fitter programme has officially gone live, matching bathroom installers, plumbers, and joiners with homeowners seeking professional bathroom wall panelling installation.

Thanks to a highly successful recruitment drive, Showerwall has seen installers across the UK register for the scheme, which allows consumers to easily search via their postcode on the Showerwall website to find trusted fitters. Registered installers are required to comply with terms and conditions, which include verifying that they are registered with well-known trade bodies such as Checkatrade.

With the wall panelling market growing 25% year on year for the past six years, the Find a Fitter programme has been developed to help bathroom professionals benefit from the growing consumer interest in wall panelling, as a design-led, easy to clean, and affordable alternative to tiles.

Steph Harris, Product Manager for Showerwall, commented: “Our Find a Fitter scheme offers a national network of approved installers who have been vetted to provide homeowners with the assurance and peace of mind that they are working with high quality professionals.

“Bathroom fitting can be a competitive industry and with more people spending time and money on their homes, the sector is busier than ever. By offering this service we are providing a quick and simple way for consumers to find local fitters within their area to transform their bathrooms.”

Approved installers will benefit from increased business opportunities in their local area through the listing as well as receiving an enhanced service offering from Showerwall, the company says. This includes video guides to help with training and sales, regular product offers and a gift on registration.

Showerwall has recently launched a new trade brochure to further support installers, which provides technical, product, and installation advice. Two online training videos are also available, with step-by-step installation guides demonstrating how easy and fast it is to install the high pressure laminate around a bath and acrylic panels within a shower enclosure.
