If you are considering selling the home anytime soon, you might want to keep at least one tub in the home. If you are forced to move to a walk-in shower, obviously that takes priority.

What is the Cost
A bathtub to shower conversion can really range in pricing. You could be as low as $5,000 to $8,000 or if you selected a nicer tile, enlarged the space, etc. you could be up at $20,000.

What type of shower door will be used? The sliding glass doors can be more expensive. We provide a free price quote for all of our clients and most of our services are performed toward the bottom end of that price range.
