FAQs About Shower & Tub Replacements

For more insights about replacing a shower or tub in your Wichita home, here are answers to some frequently asked questions:

If your tub or shower surface is extensively cracked, chipped, stained or shows signs of leakage and rot behind walls, repairs often prove less effective than a full replacement. It is also usually more economical to install a new unit rather than redo an old one beyond salvage.

The most popular bathtub replacement options today include:

  • Acrylic or fiberglass tub-showers: Durable, affordable and low maintenance
  • Enameled cast iron or steel tubs: Classic look, with scratch and stain resistance
  • Cultured marble tubs: Elegant natural stone look on a budget
  • Freestanding soaker tubs: For a spa-like focal point

Consider style, budget, cleaning needs and safety factors like slip resistance.

Most standard tub or shower replacements take 1-3 full workdays. More complex custom shower remodels with tile, lighting etc can take 5 or more days. We provide accurate time estimates before starting.

If your bath still has good bones beyond the faulty tub/shower area, you can likely just replace that section only. However, if your sink, toilet, flooring etc also need updating, it may be wise to do a full redesign for a consistent new look.

When replacing your tub or shower, it is the perfect chance to improve function and aesthetics. We can advise on layout changes like:

  • Switching tub for walk-in shower
  • Expanding stall size
  • Adjusting drain/plumbing locations
  • New door access
  • Added built-ins like recessed shelves

Yes. For any tub or shower replacement needing city permits and inspections, we take care of the entire application and approval process for you.

Why not treat yourself to an invigorating luxury showerhead for aromatherapy, towel-warming racks or even a therapeutic tub for sore muscles? We can install custom upgrades like:

  • Multi-function shower systems
  • Steam generators
  • Airbubble soaker tubs
  • Radiant heated baths
  • Chromatherapy lighting
  • Waterproof Bluetooth speakers

We provide homeowners with care instructions on cleaning products to use, avoiding harsh chemicals, re-caulking frequency, inspecting seals and more tips so your new tub or shower stays looking freshly installed for decades.

Every shower and bathtub replacement job comes with our workmanship guarantee. If you face any installation-related problems down the road, call us immediately so we can inspect and resolve concerns covered under warranty.
