Tub to Shower Conversions

According to the Council on Aging, there are over 25,000 accidents each year that occur in and around the tub area. Converting your bathtub to a shower or step through tub provides homeowners a low-cost alternative to expensive bath remodeling projects, while providing homeowners with easier access to the tub or shower area and helping to prevent injuries and falls.

Easy and safe access to a shower - This is a primary reason why people want to convert their bathtub to a shower.

Some key features and benefits of a shower conversion, include:

  • A low step-over threshold – often only six or seven inches. A traditional tub may be 16 inches or higher. 
  • Less confined bathing area allows more open space to move around in than a regular shower or tub.
  • Reduces the possibilities of falls.
  • Cost to install conversion is a fraction of cost compared to total bathroom remodel.
  • A inexpensive solution for both personal residences and senior and assisted living.
  • Installed in less than one day.

If your lifestyle doesn’t include bathing in a tub anymore – a tub to shower conversion could be for you.
