Are Tub-to-Shower Conversions Cost Effective?

September 18, 2019

When you’re setting out to remodel your bathroom, there are a lot of things you need to think about, what kind of style do you want it to be in? What kind of floor do you want? And perhaps most importantly, what kind of budget do you have and how can you save money?

One way to save a little bit of money without compromising your design is to go with a tub-to-shower conversion. We wanted to take a little bit of time today to talk about the different aspects of a tub-to-shower conversion.

What Exactly is a Tub-to-Shower Conversion?

To put it simply, it’s just what it sounds like it is; a way to transform your traditional tub into a modern shower. The process begins with the removal of the existing tub, replacing it with a custom-fitted shower base. Next, the wall will be repaired and a waterproof solid wall surround will be installed. Once the converted shower has been installed, we’ll put in the shower door and your brand new shower will be ready to use!

Save Some Serious Dough

One of the most expensive parts of a bathroom remodel is the tub and shower. If you want to get rid of your tub and install a brand new shower, then you could be looking at quite the bill, but you can make the bill a bit more stomachable with a Maryland tub-to-shower conversion.

Firstly by keeping your current wall structure and plumbing, you can save a ton of money by not having to remove and replace them. Next, you’ll want to partner with an experienced Maryland tub-to-shower conversion contractor so that you can save time and money, making this only a one-day project. Lastly, you’ll save even more money in materials with a solid wall surround as opposed to buying tile or stone.

Low Cost Doesn’t Necessarily Mean “Cheap

We’ll be the first to admit that the original tub-to-shower conversions were a little lackluster, but they’ve come a long way. Modern conversions come in all different designs and they really make it look like you installed a completely new shower. With Maryland tub-to-shower conversions, you don’t need to compromise between style and cost.
