HPS Construction Service specializes in walk-in and roll in showers, and partial or full bathroom remodels and upgrades.

Benefits of a walk-in shower

Tub-to-shower conversions not only help for safety, but effectively add what seems like a 35-45 percent increase in space and aesthetic comfort. For an upgrade, the staff runs tile all the way to the ceiling, if not already there, and extends the walls to be outside the tubs and showers to help prevent drywall water damage in the long run.

Walk-in shower cost and other upgrades

HPS Construction has done several hundred of cost-effective, high-quality tub-to-shower conversions, removing old bathtubs and building a walk-in shower. They range in cost from $4,500 to $7,500, plus about $3,000 to $5,000 for a complete bathroom upgrade. The staff at HPS Construction gets you special prices on new vanities, counter tops, sinks, faucets, regular and tri-view medicine chest/ mirror combinations, over -the-mirror light fixtures, and a choice of 20 different new generation flooring and toilet packages. Plus, the staff takes you “shopping” at their “favored nation” associate vendors — who have everything and anything you choose, whether your design, the company’s design, or a magazine or architect’s design.

Walk-in, Roll-in shower designs

This roll-in (pictured) is a hall bath in a plantation-type, single-wall house. The company also modified the door to get it out of the way and allow walker and wheelchair access to the vanity basin and the toilet.

The curb type showers shown in the other pictures on the company’s website “article” and “services” sections, and in its kitchen and bath slide show, have a removable curb for later in life, but are only 4 to 6 inches tall, making it easy to step over.

Plus, the team at HPS Construction firmly installs and secures necessary safety grab bars, current building code mandated anti-scald shower valves and fixtures, and multi-option “rain” shower type shower heads and 6-foot handheld braided shower head extensions.

Additionally, the company offers triangular and full-width built in-shower benches, and built-in soap and shampoo niches at your precise desired location.

Finally, the staff at HPS Construction helps you to choose a shower door or the new generation double cur ved shower curtain with permanently affixed brush nickel, brass, or chrome rods.

Gerry Peters is HPS Construction’s president and general manager.
