Tub Conversions Can Lead to Easier Home Accessibility
Many design aspects of houses turn into dangerous obstacles for people with limited mobility. The everyday task of getting in and out of the tub presents challenges for many of seniors in the Northeast whose house was built without aging or accessibility in mind. Previously, the only way to achieve a safe bathing environment was the time consuming and costly route of tearing out and replacing the existing tub with a walk-in shower. One Day Bath offers walk-in tub conversions, which modifies existing tubs for safe and easy access.
With hundreds of successful tub conversions, the walk-in conversion process is extremely versatile. The entryway can be made to various widths, and be located at whichever location would best suit the needs of the homeowner.
A walk-in tub conversion is the ideal solution for bathtub accessibility concerns. The conversion process involves cutting the actual bathtub, and custom fabricating the cut ends to achieve a safe and low step in height that maintains a seamless factory appearance. The typical 14-inch-high bathtub sidewall can be reduced to a mere 4 inches, as low as most showers. Since no major demolition or plumbing work is required, the job takes just one day of work, and is ready to use the following night.
Tub conversion offers tremendous value to homeowners looking for a safer bathroom. The cost and time spent on full bath remodels can add up quick due to labor and material costs but walk-in tub conversions can saves thousands of dollars while achieving the same safe and accessible bathing environment a shower offers.
For old tubs that have seen better days, One Day Bath also offers tub refinishing, which restores the original shiny appearance while incorporating a safe, non-skid surface to the tub bottom. Grab bar installation also is available for installation into most types of walls.
