2: How Long Does A Tub To Shower Conversion Take?

A: A quality New Jersey bathroom remodeler should be able to convert your bathtub into a shower in just one installation day. If you’re remodeling other areas of your bathroom at the same time, it may take a day or two longer.

At Bathroom Pros NJ, we transform your tub into a shower in just one day. We tear out your tub, fix any moisture issues that were lurking underneath, and then install your beautiful new shower.

If we’re performing a full bathroom remodel (cabinetry, vanity, flooring, etc.), that typically adds one more installation day to your job.

3: What Is The Best Material For A Tub To Shower Bathroom Remodel?

A: For top durability, performance, and maintenance, the best one-day shower material is premium, double-thick acrylic. Hands down.

Typical fiberglass and acrylic liners are flimsy and break down easily. But premium, extra-thick acrylic shower systems last for LIFE. It also comes in tons of amazing styles and colors, making it easy to find the perfect look for YOUR tastes.

4: What Is The Best Brand For Tub To Shower Materials?

A: No brand is trusted more in this industry than Bath Planet. Bath Planet products are 100% made in the USA and carry a Lifetime Guarantee. What’s more, they’re the only bathroom products that have Good Housekeeping’s Seal Of Approval!

5: Is A Tub To Shower Conversion Ideal For Senior Citizens?

A: Converting a high-edge bathtub into a walk-in shower is a FANTASTIC remodel for seniors and those with mobility issues. A walk-in shower makes bathing safe, accessible, and easy (no more stepping over the edge of the tub!).

Another excellent senior solution is a walk-in bathtub. A walk-in tub provides spa-level luxury, true comfort, and more independence. It’s a spectacular investment.

6: What Are Common Mistakes To Avoid During A Tub To Shower Conversion?
