How Do Professional Remodelers Perform Tub to Shower Conversions?

Tub to shower conversions makes a popular option among homeowners who want to save space by using the square footage their bathtub occupies for something better. Showers also conserve more water and energy than bathtubs, and homeowners can use them to clean their kids and pets faster.

We offer two kinds of showers available for conversion:

  • Curbed showers feature pans that create a total enclosure, which you must step over to enter.
  • Curbless showers have pans that lie flush with your bathroom floor, featuring no enclosures to make them friendly for people with mobility issues.

When you request a tub to shower conversion, our remodelers will remove wall sections and tiles around your bathtub, so we can wedge it free. Next, we’ll separate the tub from bathroom surfaces by removing wall studs and cutting away caulk that glues it to the floor. We will then install the shower of your choice with a custom stall kit.


Can You Perform a Tub to Shower Conversion Without Professional Help?

Tub to shower conversions requires a sizable investment in professional equipment. It’s not a job for the first-time builder, and DIYers with years of experience still struggle with the shower installation process. If you need to remove a walk-in tub with hydro-massagers and other complex features, you’re in danger of reducing its resale value by damaging one of its components.

Most people without professional experience can’t do a proper conversion without:

  • Damaging bathroom tilework
  • Bending wall stubs that might be decades old
  • Messing up plumbing connections to a home furnace       
  • Needing new drywall for their bathtub area
  • Chipping glass shower doors during installation

I highly recommend! From the beginning, Nielsen worked closely with my insurance company to advocate for us. Hope, the decorator, was key in helping us to select the right items for our kitchen. I was very impressed by the project plan that was shared with me and followed. If changes occurred to the plan, we heard from the supervisor. I'm also impressed by the high quality of the work done. Thank you!!

Nielson was very professional as were all of his contractors. Joe was also excellent and kept me well informed each step of the process. The craftsmanship is excellent and I loved the BuildersTrend App for viewing the calendar of work. They finished when they said they would and provided a cleaning service that left our house in great condition upon project completion. Highly recommend

Really, this review is 4.5 stars. Nielsen Painting and Remodeling renovated our master bath. I was impressed with the professionalism of all the personnel who handled each part of the renovation- from the demolition crew and electrician to the tilers, fabricator and painters. Nielsen’s project manager kept us updated throughout the project and was responsive to our questions. Also, the online project management tool was easy to use and understand. I recommend Nielsen Painting and Remodeling for any renovation project.

The work was excellent and efficient and they completely cleaned up at the end of each day. The price was very fair. And they had to make a lot of gingerbread for my Victorian house and did a GREAT job. I was very pleased and am glad to recommend them.
