The best reglazing company ever! I have used this company, Porcelain and Fiberglass Maintenance, for years!! I have had several homes and know for a fact, that by far, there is no other company as good at reglazing as this one. Their work is impeccable. They are responsive, easy to work with, and because they are the first company who started reglazing before anyone else did, their experience shows through their work. As an interior designer, I have felt confident and assured that I am recommending a quality product to my clients. Not only does their work speak for itself, but it lasts and protects the original fixtures. In fact, 17 out of 18 of the older homes I have restored have opted for reglazing and have used this company. My reputation is everything to my clients and I will only use the best. Don't waste your time with other companies when you can get the original. I recommend them without hesitation. Friendly, honest and truly good people.

“We have been extremely pleased with the refinishing of our bathtubs since remodeling the entire hotel. The crews who worked on the hotel were professional, competent and dependable. They worked quickly and were flexible and accommodating to work efficiently along the schedules of the other contractors.”

What is a senior bathtub conversion, and how does it work?

A senior bathtub conversion is a transformation that enhances bathroom accessibility and safety for seniors.  It typically involves converting a standard bathtub into a more accessible shower or bathtub.  Porcelain and Fiberglass Maintenance Company specializing in “tub to shower conversions near me” and “bathtub conversions for seniors near me” offer this service.  The conversion often includes features like low-step entry, grab bars, anti-slip flooring, and built-in seating to make bathing easier and safer for seniors.  Our company offers the standard bathtub access step entry, the ultra-low access step entry, and the convertible bathtub access entry with door.  What we offer is a cost-effective way to ensure seniors can continue to enjoy their bathing routine independently and comfortably.

Do I need to remodel my entire bathroom for a senior bathtub conversion?

No, a tub to shower conversion typically does not require a full bathroom remodel. This type of conversion is focused on making your bathing area more accessible and safe, primarily by providing safe access to a bathtub.  While you can choose to update other elements of your bathroom during the process, such as the tiles or fixtures, it’s not a necessity. Tub to shower conversions are designed to enhance accessibility without the need for extensive renovations, making them a cost-effective and convenient choice for seniors looking to age in place comfortably.

Can I still use my bathtub for traditional baths after the conversion?

Yes, with our convertible unit which includes a step and a door, you can still use your bathtub for traditional baths after our low cost installation. The conversion process primarily focuses on providing easy access for senior into the bathtub while maintaining the option for both accessible and traditional bathing.  This flexibility ensures that you can continue to enjoy relaxing baths when desired while benefiting from improved accessibility and safety for daily use. It’s a convenient solution that provides the best of both worlds in your bathroom.

What types of bathtub conversion are available for seniors?

There are several types of bathtub conversions designed for seniors to enhance accessibility and safety. Two popular options are the “senior access step” and the “senior access step with tub door.”

  • Senior Standard Access Step: This conversion involves adding a low-step entry to your existing bathtub, making it easier for seniors to step in and out safely.
  • Senior Ultra-Low Access Step: In addition to the standard access step entry, this option includes an ultra-low entry, further simplifying access for Seniors who need lower access.
  • Senior Convertible Access Step with Tub Door: In addition to the standard and ultra-low access step entries, this option includes a drop-in tub door, further simplifying access while also allowing for more water fill into the bathtub.

These conversions provide seniors with convenient alternatives to traditional bathtubs, ensuring a safer and more comfortable bathing experience.

What is better for seniors a standard tub conversion or a convertible tub conversion?

In the choice between a standard or ultra-low tub conversion and a convertible tub conversion for seniors, it’s crucial to consider their unique needs and preferences.  A standard or ultra-low tub conversion transforms the existing bathtub into a walk-in shower, offering enhanced safety and easy access.  On the other hand, the convertible tub conversion provides versatility, allowing seniors the option to bathe while seated and adapting to changing needs by simply using the door.

Both options bring essential benefits, but the decision ultimately rests on individual preferences and budget considerations.  Whether one chooses the simplicity of a standard conversion or the adaptability of a convertible solution, the outcome is an improved quality of life for seniors, ensuring safer and more comfortable bathing experiences.
