Why a tub to shower conversion?
A tub to shower conversion makes your bathroom more usable, especially as you age. A shower is more accessible, easier to keep clean and actually uses less water. And if you’re thinking about selling your home any time soon, it’s a good move. The American Institute of Architects annual Home Design Trends Survey found that more than 60% of homeowners preferred a stall shower without a tub in 2013. Compare that to 49% in 2012, the first year they specifically surveyed about tub-less bathrooms.
More and more bathroom remodeling projects are including this process. With Coldwright Plumbing, we can remove the old tub, put in a fiberglass shower one or two piece enclosures, one head shower conversion diverters to a gorgeous rain shower panel. We can also install handrails for easy access in and out. Getting a tub to shower conversion is money well spent. While we’re there for the conversion is also a good time to update your toilet, sink, vanity, and fixtures that really accent the bathroom.
We take the critical measurements to make sure you get the right size shower for your space, with a shower door made to your specifications if one is not in stock. If we need to make modifications to bring your bathroom up to code, we will let you know, and what the cost will be. As with any remodeling project, when we begin the tear-out, we may discover hidden problems. Rest assured, we have the experience to handle anything we uncover.
Just keep in mind that most real estate agents agree that your home should have at least one bathtub for future marketability. Prospective homebuyers with small children won’t buy a house without a tub.
