The largest fixture in your home's bathrooms is always your tub or shower assembly. Available as a tub-only unit (such as old claw-foot styles or garden tubs), tub/shower combos, or shower-only assemblies, tub and shower options are almost limitless when it comes to replacements or upgrades. Whether you are simply replacing an older tub/shower or remodeling your entire bathroom, we should be your first call before you begin.
Stand-alone tubs are making a comeback in today's contemporary home designs. Solitary tubs offer a unique style and old-world quality, as well as being very functional. Claw-foot tubs are the simple, cast iron style with externally mounted faucets and drain pieces. They generally sit away from other fixtures in the bathroom. They sometimes have removable shower assemblies mounted to their rims to transform the tub into a shower with a wrap-around curtain and showerhead. They can get very expensive, are very heavy, and must be installed carefully in order to ensure proper water and drain function. This is due to the fact that the hot/cold waterlines and drain lines jut straight up from the floor at one end of the tub, and are not mounted to anything EXCEPT the tub. Jacuzzi and garden tubs are also popular where space permits, and offer a large basin often accompanied by water jets.
Tub/shower combos are perhaps the most common type of fixture in this category, being present in over 90% of all homes across the country. Comprised of three walls and a tub, they have an open front to step in/out, with the shower valve located at one end on the wall, about waist-height. Multi-piece, one-piece, tiled, sheet rocked, and even stone tub/shower combos are available. Tub/shower combos combine the two fixtures, and as such, save some space in your bathroom.
Stand-alone showers are becoming very popular, often sitting next to a stand-alone tub unit. Showers can be composed of a fiberglass one- or multi-piece build, tile, stone, or acrylic. They are enclosed on their one open side by either a curtain or a door, either swinging or sliding. The showers can be small (4' x4') or very large depending on customer requests. We have personally built showers in the 8' x 8' size, with multiple sprayers and showerheads. Whatever your tub/shower needs are, whether your valve needs repaired or your entire assembly needs replaced, we are your guys.
