General Information About Shower and Bathtub Installation
Installing a bathtub or shower involves several steps and typically requires professional assistance. Before starting the installation process, it is important to make sure that the location and measurements of the plumbing are correct, and that the area is properly prepared. The specific steps involved in installing a bathtub or shower will depend on the type of bathtub or shower being installed and the existing plumbing in the bathroom.
Generally, the installation process involves the following steps:
- Turning off the water supply to the bathroom
- Removing any existing fixtures or appliances
- Measuring and cutting the necessary holes or openings in the walls or floor
- Securing the bathtub or shower in place and installing the drain and overflow
- Installing plumbing fixtures, such as faucets, valves, and showerheads
- Testing for leaks and making any necessary adjustments
Our bathtub installers start by making sure all measurements are correct before they begin work. Likewise, our shower installers will keep your accessibility and budget needs in mind when completing the job. We understand that shower and bathtub installation can be overwhelming, which is why we are here to help you every step of the way.

Installing a Walk-In Shower
Nowadays, there are plenty of shower styles, such as:
- Walk-in showers
- Steam showers
- Rain showerheads
- Customized Showers
Walk-in showers are also a great option for those with mobility issues or disabilities, as they are easy to navigate and do not have any barriers to step over. In addition, walk-in showers come in many different styles, including minimalistic, spa-like, and contemporary. The installation of a walk-in shower is particularly common because it allows people to enter and exit the shower without having to step over a threshold. A walk-in shower installation requires careful preparation and planning. Therefore, a professional installation is recommended.
A professional will make sure that the measurements, angles, and other factors are taken into account before installation. They will also ensure that proper waterproofing is used to prevent moisture damage and that the shower is anchored securely to the walls and/or floor. Moreover, they will double-check every step to ensure everything is done seamlessly. DIY-ing these steps can be a huge hassle and may even be unsafe for you and your family.
A bathtub replacement means that you need to remove your existing tub and replace it with a new one. Here are some reasons you might need to do this:
- Leakage: Bathtubs can develop leaks over time, which can cause damage to the surrounding area and lead to costly repairs.
- Aesthetics: A worn or outdated bathtub can negatively impact the overall look and feel of the space.
- Accessibility: If someone in the household has mobility issues, a traditional bathtub may be difficult to use and a walk-in shower or a bathtub with a built-in seat may be more suitable.
- Increased Value: Updating an old bathtub to a newer, more stylish version can increase the value of your home.
- Space Utilization: A bathtub may not be the best use of space in a smaller bathroom and removing it can open the area and make it feel more spacious.
- Safety: A bathtub with a slick surface, and missing or broken slip resistance can be dangerous and a liability.
Tub-to-Shower Bathroom Conversion
As amazing as baths can be, they aren’t always the best use of space. If you have a larger bathroom, having both a bathtub and a shower makes sense, but for smaller bathrooms, a tub-to-shower conversion is often the best option.
There are several reasons why you might want to convert a bathtub to a shower in your bathroom, including:
- Lack of use: If a bathtub is rarely used, converting it to a shower can make better use of the space in the bathroom.
- Accessibility: For people with mobility issues, a shower is often a more accessible option than a bathtub.
- Safety: A shower can be safer than a bathtub, as it eliminates the need to step over a high threshold and reduces the risk of slips and falls.
- Aesthetics: A shower can create a more modern and updated look in a bathroom compared to an older bathtub.
Our network of shower installers knows the ins and outs of bathroom remodeling and can help you select the best option for your needs. Call us today to learn more.
Making a Bathroom Handicap Accessible
Here are some common accessibility features you can incorporate into a bathroom to make it more usable for people with disabilities:
- Grab bars: These can be installed near the toilet, shower, and bathtub to provide support when sitting or standing.
- Raised toilet: A toilet that sits higher off the ground can make it easier for people who use wheelchairs to transfer on and off the toilet.
- Handheld showerhead: This type of showerhead can be used by those who have difficulty standing or moving around in the shower.
- Lowered sink: A sink that sits lower to the ground can make it easier for wheelchair users to access the sink and wash their hands.
- Non-slip flooring: Flooring with a non-slip surface can help to prevent falls and improve safety in the bathroom.
- Lever handles: Lever handles can be easier for the elderly or disabled with limited hand strength or dexterity to use than knobs or round handles.
If you want to install handrails, raised toilets, or any other accessibility features in your bathroom, our experts can help. We can provide high-quality products and quality installation services to ensure your bathroom meets the needs of everyone in your home. Call us today.
