‘Cost-cutting’ safety measures for the bathtub
There are more than 200,000 accidents in the U.S. that are bathroom related every year. That equates to about 70 percent of all home accidents, making the bathroom one of the most dangerous places in the house.
At All Island Bath, the company has several methods that will make your bath safer, more comfortable and able to fit within your budget. With more than two decades of experience, All Island Bath has perfected a unique combination of services, always providing customers with the best value for their needs. Nothing makes the company happier than a satisfied customer.
Most of All Island Bath’s jobs come from referrals or repeat satisfi ed customers, making that the most important part of its business — the family of customers. Here are just a few of All Island Bath’s services:
Low-cost tub cutout
If you have a hard time lifting your leg over the tub skirt, or have ever lost your balance getting into the tub, converting it to a shower would make it safer and more comfortable for seniors, and could prevent a potential accident. Your existing tub is utilized by cutting the skirt to lower the step-over height, making it safer for seniors at an affordable price.
Resurfacing your worn or stained tub, or wall surround
This is a cost-effective method of adding life to your tub or wall surround. The company also has artists who can simulate granite to be used for your countertop or wall surround.
Converting tubs to showers
The most popular choice is the shower conversion, where you replace your existing tub for an easy-to-step-over shower. The company recommends using grab bars where needed and an ADA-height toilet, which is becoming a standard for all toilets.
Tub liners and simulated marble or granite wall liner
Fitting a new tub over your old rusty or hard-to-clean tub or wall will transform your bath to a remodeled granite or marble-like look. This creates a remodeled bathroom without the usual mess associated with a complete demo. It also saves you money.
All Island Bath also has ways of saving you money doing traditional remodeling, without the sacrifi ce of diminishing quality. Call owner Guy Kakugawa at 358-7780, and he and his staff can help you with information about your remodeling needs. Estimates and consultations are free.
