How much does a tub to walk-in shower conversion cost?
Since we can normally get a sense of your situation from a picture, we’ll generally ask you to text us photos of your bathtub. This helps us give you an accurate estimate. See Photo Estimating Pics.
What is a walk/step-thru insert?
How high will my step-in be?
Our standard inserts reduce the step in by 8 inches. To determine how high your step in will be, measure 8 inches down on the outside wall of your tub. With a Sharpie or a strip of masking tape, mark this point. This mark represents the height of the step for your tub.
On most fiberglass tubs, a custom insert can be made to even go lower. For these situations, it is best to contact us and discuss your tub.

Bathtubs installed prior to the 1960’s are more likely to be cast iron. Cast iron and some steel tubs generally have porcelain coatings. I can usually determine whether your tub is steel or cast from a picture. See our Photo Gallery tab.
