Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. The bathroom can be the most dangerous room in the house, especially for seniors. More serious falls and deaths occur in this room with its hard surfaces combined with slippery, wet conditions. When we reach the age when climbing into a traditional bathtub is no longer safe, it’s time to make safe bathing changes. When we are facing a physical limitation, safe and independent bathing is just no longer possible in a conventional bathroom. Changes are needed yet some hold back out of fear it will look like a "hospital" or it will be cost prohibitive. That is no longer the case with our systems. A bathroom remodel can be as simple as the right accessories, including specialized grab bars to help make transferring safer and easier. Or it can mean a complete bathroom upgrade, with the end result looking stylish and up to date. In fact, it is estimated that 110% of the cost of a bathroom upgrade is recouped later on down the road in possible resale. We do custom tile walk-in or roll-in showers or commercial grade, durable plywood reinforced fiberglass walk-in or roll-in showers with a " Real tile" look finish - with color options you design! We also offer walk-in tubs that can come with air jets for circulation issues, or water jets for therapeutic purposes, all at a substantial discount to our competitors with options others just don't offer.
