Our fiberglass shower pan has been squeaking for a while now. It's much worse during cold weather. Does this mean we need to replace it? There are no signs of cracks or water leaking?

It may be that the drainpipe is rubbing against wood under the pan whenever someone is standing on it, and it's flexing. Or it could be that the sides and pan are rubbing.
As long as you're sure that it's not leaking, I wouldn't worry about it. You'll just have to live with the squeaking unless you want to take it out and correct the squeak or replace the pan now.
Good Luck!

Thanks Old Guy!

It's only 6 years old, I'm hoping it'll last at least that much longer.

If you can get under the shower pan you can spray foam under the pan, it will fill all the holes to the floor and when it dryes it will be very solid and quiet. I spray foam under all my bath tubs and showers.....Good Luck...
