Benefits of a New Walk-In Tub

A full-service bathroom-remodeling company, Re-Bath helps customers redesign their bathrooms to meet changing family needs. Re-Bath offers walk-in bathtubs, manufactured by company professionals, as a part of this service.

A welcome and often necessary feature of a recently renovated bathroom, the walk-in tub allows a mobility-challenged individual to safely and easily enjoy the luxury of a long, hot bath. These tubs offer an easy-to-open swinging door that allows the bather to step into the tub without climbing, crouching, or bending. The tub also features grab bars for stability and faucets that can also be reached without bending or reaching.

Re-Bath also supports user safety with a slip-resistant floor on its walk-in tubs. In addition, these tubs feature a comfortable seat for those unable to sit on a bath floor and a foot rest to support bathers of nearly any height. The tubs fill to a depth of 2.5 feet at speeds faster than most other models in the industry, making it comfortable to bathe in a sitting position. As an added feature, the company offers a system of jets for those who suffer from arthritis and muscle tension. Each bath is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act and is industry certified.

Increase Home Value with Bathroom Remodels

Trends come and go, and certain rooms in a home, such as kitchens and bathrooms, tend to look more outdated than bedrooms and communal living spaces. Many homeowners choose to remodel on a room-by-room basis to increase the value of their home, improve their home’s appearance, or attract more buyers with renovations. According to a U.S. News article, bathroom remodels typically offer high returns on investment. Re-Bath has been helping homeowners remodel bathrooms since 1979.

Re-Bath offers professional installation of showers and bathtubs; a popular service is the conversion of old bathtubs into private, stand-alone showers, a feature that is in high demand in today’s real estate market. In addition to updating showers and tubs, interior designers and real estate professionals also recommend updating lighting and faucet fixtures to create a contemporary appearance. For example, swapping out old brass light fixtures for flush-mounted lighting with brushed nickel accents is an inexpensive way to modernize an outdated bathroom.

Tub to Shower Conversions for Seniors




With over 200 local and family-owned franchise locations, Re-Bath LLC helps homeowners achieve the remodeled bathrooms they want for their homes. In addition to offering high-quality products and service, Re-Bath charges reasonable rates, allowing customers to redesign bathroom spaces at a cost that they can afford. One common bathroom remodeling project is to convert a tub into a shower stall.








A homeowner may wish to convert a bathtub into a shower stall for many reasons. For example, many homeowners may be concerned about slipping and falling while trying to get into a bathtub. This is particularly true for seniors, who may be prone to serious injuries should a fall occur.




The National Council on Aging estimates that 250,000 Americans over age 60 slip and fall in or near bathtubs every year. Many of these falls result in broken hips. Additionally, a senior who falls in the bathtub area is likely to experience a similar incident in the near future.




In comparison to a bathtub, a shower stall is easier to step into. It may include easily accessible guardrails and other features designed to increase safety. For older adults concerned with falls, a tub to shower conversion can be an excellent decision.
