Many people ask us: How can I turn my tub into a shower?
Oftentimes, for people who have trouble walking and moving around their homes, stepping over the tub wall can be the most stressful and scary part of the bathing process.
We help families with tub-to-shower conversions, so that caretakers and customers alike can be confident and safe when it comes time to shower.
At Promise Home Works, our #1 priority is you and your family, which is why we go to great lengths to help St. Louisans live at home longer by providing personalized solutions that enable customers to be safe.
To begin the process of turning your tub into a shower, first contact us by either calling the number above or completing the form on this page. From there:
- We will send out a certified consultant that’s trained to review the safety and accessibility of your home. Even though we can install all types of bathroom modifications, we always lean towards creating a walk-in shower or barrier-free shower, if possible, as those provide the most opportunity for safety.
- We will also look at any other areas of the home which may need attention. For example, wheelchair ramps, grab bars, handrails, stair lifts, etc. This is a no-obligation assessment. We will make recommendations and then you can decide which safety and accessibility options you would like to have installed in your home.
- We will review your current tub area and ask for your aesthetic preferences on the type of shower. Options include: onyx, tile, acrylic, etc. Then we’ll review colors and styles for the shower pan and the walls. One popular style is the tiled shower pan which usually is a component for a wet-room set-up, wherein the tile gently slopes towards a drain, with no curb or step of any kind. Additionally, our customers will typically request a corner caddie for shampoo/soap, as well as a detachable, handheld shower head.
- After reviewing all the product choices for the new shower, we would move forward with the project and turn it over to our Operations Manager and General Manager. They will review the project with you and take any and all measurements.
Upon starting the job, our lead carpenter reviews for a second time the scope of work and verifies all job perimeters. From this point on, the lead carpenter serves as your point of contact and will review with you the daily start and stop times (where we’ll be going in and out of the house), how we will protect your floors with paper and how we will place plastic where necessary to prevent dust in the work area.
Once the job is completed, please be reassured we are only a phone call away. If anything needs attention we will get it fixed, all of our work is guaranteed for one-full calendar year.
