why you should convert your
bathtub to a shower

Your bathroom is one of the most frequently used rooms in your home. Many older bathrooms come with the original bathtub installed and homeowners just keep the old bath, even though it is outdated and impractical. The traditional bath model used to be a tub/shower combo, but times have changed, and now it’s all about the walk-in shower. When thinking about doing a bathroom remodel, a tub to shower conversion should be on the top of your list. A tub to shower conversion is one of the most popular bathroom remodel ideas among homeowners.

Here are just a few reasons why you should convert your bathtub to a shower.

Improved Accessibility

  • By converting your old tub to a walk-in shower, you no longer have to step over the ledge of the tub to get inside, making for easier entry. 
  • Our showers are all ADA compliant and fully customizable. You can choose to install safety features like grab bars, seating, and textured shower pans. 
  • Every shower is chip, fade, and crack resistant with mold and mildew resistant technology for easier maintenance.
