Affordable alternative. converting your bathtub into a shower will create more space and allow you to keep your existing plumbing without fully remodeling your bathroom.
Many people are interested in converting a bathtub into a shower, and for good reason. While many newer homes are built with showers instead of (or in addition to) tubs, older homes often have bathrooms with tubs that double as showers. Since most people take more showers than baths, there's no need for multiple bathtubs in the average house.
Statistics show that converting a bathtub to a shower could prevent some serious accidents. In the U.S., over 25,000 accidents occur in and around bathtubs every year. Many of these mishaps occur as older people try to step over the high front apron or wall of the tub. Making a tub-to-shower conversion eliminates this tripping and falling hazard.

You don't need major demolition and reconstruction to convert your existing bathtub. JACOB can provide tub-to-shower conversions that can be completed from start to finish in just one or two days. Here are two different options to consider:
Replacing the tub with a shower base gives you the benefit of a larger showering area, as you're no longer stuck with the limited space of the tub floor. If you replace the tub with a new shower base sized to match the tub, your showering area changes from cramped to very generous.
For this kind of conversion, it is often recommended that a new shower surround be installed to go with the new shower base. This type of surround can be installed directly over an existing tile wall, saving time and money. Since the surround is durable and completely waterproof, there will be no grout joints to clean or repair.
To complete any tub to shower conversion, it's worth adding in a few extras that will enhance safety, convenience, and your overall enjoyment of this transformed space. Adding grab bars in your new shower space will make it safer and more user friendly for people of all ages. It's also a good idea to install a new mixing valve for the shower. The valve and its temperature control handle can be located at a convenient height on the shower wall. Finally, don't forget to upgrade to a full-featured showerhead.
