A New Bath Without Remodeling
By Angella A. Arndt
Does your bathtub or shower need a face lift? Do you want to make an update but dread the thought of going through a bathroom renovation that drags on for weeks or months? Well, there’s no need to put it off any longer. Bath Fitter offers custom, high-quality solutions that are completed in as little as one day.
Bath Fitter was founded in 1984 and is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year. This industry-leading company has more than 270 locations in Canada and the United States, and they’ve been in Omaha since 2004. They are ready to provide a customized solution for your bathroom remodel.
How are they able to complete the job in as little as one day? It’s a simple idea, efficiently executed: They install a new, custom-made tub or shower right over your old one. The design and fabrication work is done off-site, so the installation process is quick and convenient for the homeowner. You can choose from four colors and 10 different wall patterns, as well as 12 different bathtub front designs. You may select from a variety of faucet and shower choices, including traditional, rain shower, and handheld. Shower door options include sliding, pivot, neo-angle, and curved. You can also organize your tub or shower with accessories such as corner shelves, soap dishes, footrests, and towel bars. There’s even bead-board wainscoting that fits over wall tile for a clean, updated look. With all of the options available, you’re sure to find the perfect solution for your bathroom.
According to Brandon Delaney, the branch manager at Bath Fitter’s Omaha location, Bath Fitter is “the only company that offers a seamless wall.” This is important because water cannot leak through—plus, there isn’t any grout to clean and maintain. All of the products are custom-made for an exact fit.
The tubs and showers are made of a high-gloss, proprietary acrylic that is easy to clean. The acrylic is incredibly hard, is non-porous, and maintains its gloss. They start with raw acrylic that is manufactured in-house from start to finish. Because everything is made in-house, they can offer a consistent, high-quality product. There are no third parties or subcontractors involved in any part of the process, including installation. Bath Fitter technicians are all factory-trained and certified. “We offer a permanent solution, not a temporary solution,” says Brandon.
Bath Fitter also provides tub-to-shower conversions for customers who have a bathtub they no longer use and would prefer a shower in its place. The extra-large showers are an excellent alternative for people with mobility issues. This type of shower provides a safe, walk-in solution without having to climb over a tub rail. Other safety features include grab bars, handheld faucets, and in-shower fold-down seats.
Brandon shares his thoughts about things to consider when selecting a bathroom renovation company. Make sure the company has a solid background. How long has the company been in business? How are reviews on the company’s installation and service? Do they offer a warranty? If so, what are the details? Do they have good referrals? “Talk to companies and make sure you understand what you’re getting,” Brandon advises. You’ll feel better knowing that your money is being well spent.
All Bath Fitter products carry a lifetime warranty for as long as you own your home. The warranty covers all acrylic products, including the walls, accessories, tub, or shower. You won’t have to worry about discoloration, cracking, or loss of shine. Customer service and satisfaction are important to Bath Fitter, Brandon notes. “We offer a high-quality product. Projects are typically completed in one day. The ease of the process means there is minimal to no demolition. The lifetime warranty means that if you decide to use Bath Fitter, you don’t have to worry about your tub or shower—we’ll take care of it.”
Brandon loves hearing from happy customers. “After the initial ‘Wow!’ moment, when customers see their new bath or shower, they are also pleased to find that the high-gloss acrylic is easy to clean and to keep looking like new,” he shares. “Our customers are also happy with the service after installation.”
