Mark Dawson, CEO of Re-Bath, states that these two franchises were deserving of recognition based on their exceptional professionalism within the bathroom remodeling industry.

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.
