Tub or Shower Solutions
Here is some detailed information of various Tub or Shower solutions we’ve delivered to hundreds of customers over the years:
There’s an assumption that bathrooms are supposed to have baths! Traditionally speaking most homes have at least one tub. This helps with resale value. Although, we are seeing more and more homeowner’s convert their tubs to showers.
Baths are extremely relaxing! Nohting better than coming home for a hard day’s work and taking a nice warm bath. Plus, there is always the option of adding bath salts for sore muscles.
Baths are better for the family! Baths are fun for kids as they see it as playtime. Small children don’t enjoy a shower on their head, so it is best to use a tub while the kids are younger.
Not having a tub may make it harder to sell your home. Some families will not consider a home without a tub. The aging population may prefer a tub over a shower as well.
Tubs can be replaced with beatufiul surrounds that seal tightly to the tub unit itself. They have additional shelf space and they are easy to clean.
As many people are converting tubs to showers in order to get more space in their bathroom.
Free up space by replacing the tub with a shower unit. Showers give you the benefit of being able to fit in special places, like corners.
There is more variety with shower units. There are shower enclosures with pivot, inline, sliding and more shower doors. There are also walk-in showers that make accessibility very easy.
Modern showers have about every option possible. There are different types of water pressures, built-in radios, and even showers where the water can change color!
Quick – showers are super fast! Much easier than running a tub of water. A quick shower gives you a burst of energy, especially in the morning.
Water saver! Showers use less water than filling up a tub as long as the shower time is not over extended.
Change the Tub to a Shower
It is easier to change a tub to a shower than a shower to tub In order to get the proper shower expierence, it is best to utilize the entire space. Plus, additional faucets can be added.
Remove the old Tub: This involves removing the plumbing, and carefully taking the old tub out. Walls and flooring can be involved. It’s important to plan for the proper removal of the old tub and cleaning up the mess as you go is another essential step.
Install the Shower Pan: The shower pan is the most important part of a new walk-in shower, and typically a custom, concrete-set pan will be poured. Proper care must be taken to achieve adequate slope of the pan to the drain. The biggest concern is waterproofing the shower pan. Grout joints between the tiles on the shower floor are not waterproofed and water will eventually seep through, into the shower pan and down into the room below. A seamless waterproof membrane must be installed either on top of, or beneath the concrete-set shower pan.
Install Wallboard: In many bathrooms, the three walls surrounding a tub are painted drywall. This drywall must be removed and replaced with Durrock, or another brand of tile backer board to prevent water saturation. Many contractors will use mold-resistant drywall as the substrate behind the tile, but over time seeping water will cause the wallboard to deteriorate.Tile must be installed along the three shower walls and on the shower pan. Large or small tile formats can be used for the shower walls and a mosaic (or small format) tile should be used at the shower floor to conform to the contour of the pan. The joints between all tiles will need to be grouted, and then sealed.
Obviously, there are other steps involved a bathtub to shower remodel, but overall it can a relatively straight forward renovation that can completely transform the look and function of any bathroom.
Homeowners on a tight budget can choose a fiberglass tub and shower combination unit for an economical option to replace a current tub. Fiberglass is lightweight and relatively inexpensive, with a nice appearance. Homeowners can choose a tub and shower unit with shelves on the shower walls for holding soaps, shampoos and other items and towel bars are another popular addition to provide added convenience. Fiberglass remains the material of choice for tub and shower replacement when saving money is an important factor.
