Individuals with disabilities, or aging individuals for that matter, often struggle with tasks that were once second nature. Stepping over the edge of a tub presents one such struggle. Each year we receive dozens of calls from home owners trying to make their bathroom more accessible and user friendly. Completing a tub to shower conversion often provides the perfect solution for this nagging problem. People tend to be self reliant as long a possible, so projects such as this can typically extend the time frame of self dependence. Our client desired this exact tub to shower conversion project, so we went to work coming up with the best solution. Our client did not want anything flashy, just a shower that was conducive to their needs.
Shower enclosures come in all shapes, sizes and styles. Our client opted for a simple, sleek and clean shower pan and surround. We installed bracing in the wall to accommodate the grab bars to provide additional safety and strength. The removable hand held shower head provided range of motion for our client, and allowed for safe, accessible and convention showering. If you would like to add a little more style and pizzazz, we can install a tile surround with recessed shampoo niches and inlaid accents, or can install a number of different glue up surround such as Choreograph and Flexstone. Our goal remains to meet your needs within a budget you can afford.
