Quality Residential Tub Enclosure Installation Services
Many people are unfamiliar with bathtub enclosures despite their presence in many homes. Tub enclosures, also known as tub surrounds, are large water-resistant covers that attach to the wall near your bathtub. When installed correctly, they inhibit mold growth and prevent water damage.
Tub and shower enclosures come in a variety of styles and can be made of a range of materials. Some common materials include:
- Composite stone
- Molded acrylic panels
The material of your tub enclosure mostly impacts the aesthetics and installation costs. So if you only want to protect your walls and aren’t terribly concerned with appearance, choosing a less expensive material won’t greatly impact the function. Stone materials and fine tiling tend to cost the most, while molded acrylic and fiberglass are more affordable.
Enclosures do more than just protect your walls — they can even improve the functionality of your bath and shower. For example, some tub enclosures come with shelving that can eliminate the need for a shower caddy. Others have rails that improve safety when bathing. And others include sliding glass doors that reduce water spillage and remove the need for a shower curtain.
No matter which tub enclosure design or material you choose, the seasoned pros at Mr. Rooter Plumbing will install it correctly and efficiently. And if there are any flaws in your installation or replacement, we’ll come back and fix it free of charge. That’s our Neighborly Done Right Promise™!
Tub Enclosure Installation FAQs
What factors influence the cost of tub enclosure installation?
The primary drivers of cost for tub enclosures are the size of the tub, the enclosure material, and the bathroom layout. Some layouts may not fit standard tub enclosures, and demolition may be required to fit the desired enclosure. Provided that your bathroom can fit your chosen tub enclosure, the material will be the primary driver of cost.
What are the benefits of a tub enclosure?
Tub enclosures are mainly useful for preventing mold damage and water damage. Some also improve the safety of your tub with handrails or add more storage space with shelving. Others have glass doors that improve privacy and reduce how much water escapes from the tub area when showering.
Do I need a professional to install a tub enclosure?
Tub enclosures are large and need to be installed perfectly in order to protect paint and drywall. For these reasons and others, you should hire a professional to install them. If they are not installed properly, it can lead to water damage and mold growth.
Can tub enclosures be repaired?
Yes, tub enclosures can be repaired if they are slightly damaged and no longer sealed to protect your walls. We recommend calling a professional for tub enclosure repair services rather than attempting a DIY solution. If repair is not possible, tub enclosure replacement may be necessary.
