You’ve been considering converting your bathtub into a walk-in shower, but you have a few lingering questions. Well, the good news is that our staff here at NU Tub wants to help answer all your questions, starting with these four.

Tub to Shower Conversion1. How does it work?

We begin by cutting out a portion of your bathtub’s dam (side where you usually enter/exit), making that area lower to the ground. From there, our team will install either a step or a water-tight door that makes getting in and out of the tub easier. We complete the process by refinishing the tub to make sure everything looks uniform and finished.

2. What does it is cost?

All our services, including shower conversions, depend on a number of factors. When you call to get a quote, we’ll likely ask you more about your bathtub, what it’s made out of, and so on. From there, we’ll provide you with a free estimate on the project.

3. How long does it take?

Most tub-to-shower conversions take one day to complete. This time factor is a huge reason why many homeowners opt for this service versus a complete bathtub gut job, which can take weeks or more.

4. Why should I consider a tub conversion?

Many people prefer a walk-in shower to a bathtub. However, a primary reason that our customers opt for tub-to-shower conversions is the enhanced safety. With a lower-profile entrance, users are less likely to fall getting in and out of the tub. Additionally, when you opt for a water-tight door, you can still enjoy the benefits of a bathtub but the ease of a shower for entering and exiting.
