Product Showcase: Tub Cut
Posted on by John Burfield
Changes in balance and mobility can become a problem as we age, and getting in and out of the tub can be especially hazardous. If stepping over the side of the bathtub is a safety concern for you, a tub cut may be the best solution.
A tub cut modification takes only a few hours to complete and turns your existing bathtub into a step-in shower overnight. Or, if you wish to take a bath, an optional watertight door or insert is also available, so you can choose the best of both worlds.
The tub cut will remove about 9 inches of height from the side wall and an approximate 6-inch curb will remain to keep water inside the tub when used with a standard shower curtain.
A tub cut typically starts at around $1,120 installed and can be completed in just one day, so it’s ideal for those with a limited budget or who need a quick solution.
