How Long Does It Take to Complete a Jacuzzi® Tub-to-Shower Conversion?
Bathrooms remain a popular location in the home for renovations and upgrades, and considering how much we all use them, it’s easy to see why. And, since most homeowners inevitably end up wishing they had more square footage in their bathrooms, one of the most-requested remodeling projects is the tub-to-shower conversion.
At Jacuzzi Bath Remodel we’ve been helping homeowners upgrade their bathrooms with world-famous Jacuzzi® products for years, so we’ve completed our share of tub-to-shower conversions. If you’ve got pressing questions about the conversion process, we can help.
What to Expect During a Tub-to-Shower Conversion
During a tub-to-shower conversion, an existing bathtub—or, more commonly, a tub/shower combo—is removed and replaced with a traditional shower. When you work with Jacuzzi Bath Remodel, here’s how the process goes:
The first step of any conversion is meeting with an experienced product expert to discuss your goals for the project and survey your bathroom. They can help you decide on the best plan of action based on your budget, lifestyle, and personal tastes, and give you personalized recommendations that will help you make the most of your bathroom.
Next comes the fun part—design. During most tub-to-shower conversions, the entire tub area will be remodeled, including wall surrounds, basins, hardware, and any other area that needs to be retouched before shower installation. The good news for you is that you’ll have plenty of design elements that can be personalized to your tastes, so you can design a shower that is visually enticing and loaded with attractive features, like shelves, grab bars, and built-in seating.
Since our shower remodeling products are customizable, many pieces will require custom manufacturing. During the tub-to-shower conversion process, this is likely the step that will take the longest to accomplish, depending on the scope of your project. If you’ve selected a wide array of custom options or personalized details, there’s always a chance that manufacturing the separate components of your shower will take some time. Likewise, choosing standard or off-the-shelf options may speed up your manufacturing process.
After all the individual components of your shower have been manufactured, your remodeling contractor will take over. When you work with Jacuzzi Bath Remodel, the installation process make take a lot less time than you realize. That’s because we can often accomplish installations in as little as one day. Of course, every project varies—many times, demolition of the old tub can be a more time-intensive project than installation. In general, expect at least a couple days for a tub-to-shower conversion installation.
