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 (not slipping on the inward angles of tubs), but also effectively add what seems like a 35 percent to 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

We have done several hundred of these cost-effective, high-quality tubto-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 top to bottom. The staff at HPS gets you special prices on new vanities, countertops, 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, our design, or a magazine or architect’s design.

Walk-in, roll-in shower designs

This roll-in is a hall bath in one of the typical “plantation” type single wall houses. 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. And because they’re only 4-6 inches tall, they’re easy to step over.

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

Last but not least, the company offers triangular and full-width, built-in shower benches, and built-in soap and shampoo niches at precise desired location.

Finally, the staff at HPS helps you to choose a shower door or the new generation double curved shower curtain permanently affixed brush nickel, brass, or chrome rods whereby the outer bar is absolutely great for extra and faster towel drying.
