Project Spotlight: Old, Steel Tub to Sparkling, New Tub Shower Combo in Baltimore, MD, Home

In this project showcase, we will explore a remarkable tub shower combo project carried out by West Shore Home in Baltimore, MD. The homeowner had an old steel tub that was rotted around the drain and leaking. Our expert installation team started the day by informing the customer of what to expect and then executed the plan we had discussed. Let’s dive into the details of this transformation and discover why West Shore Home is the ideal choice for your tub shower combo needs in Baltimore, MD.

Installation Day

Before beginning any project, it is essential to assess the existing conditions and plan accordingly. In this case, the West Shore Home team assessed the homeowner’s old steel tub, which had significant damage around the drain. The tub was leaking and needed to be replaced.

Our installation team informed the homeowner about the entire process, discussing the steps involved and addressing any concerns or questions. This clear communication ensured that both parties were on the same page before the project commenced.

Demolition and Preparation

To prepare for the remodel, the West Shore Home team started by removing all the walls down to the studs, leaving the area open for the installation of the new shower. This meticulous demolition ensured a clean slate for the transformation.

After removing the old tub, the team assessed the drain and re-adapted all the plumbing to fit the new shower design. This step was crucial to ensure proper functionality and prevent any future leaks or issues.

Installing the New Shower

With the old tub removed and the plumbing adapted, the installation phase of the project began. The West Shore Home team worked closely with the homeowner to create a customized shower that met their specific needs and preferences.

For this project, the team installed a new tub that was 17 inches deep and finished in an elegant acrylic in ‘Alabaster White.’ The acrylic walls provide a sturdy base for the shower enclosure. To ensure a seamless and watertight installation, the team used inside corner reinforcements and cardboard template strips to outline the walls. This meticulous attention to detail guaranteed a perfect fit and a secure seal.

Customization and Finishing Touches

One of the advantages of working with West Shore Home is the ability to customize every aspect of your tub shower combo. In this project, the homeowner had the opportunity to select shelf locations and grab bar placements.

Once the locations were chosen, the team installed shelves and grab bars to enhance the functionality and safety of the new shower. These finishing touches added convenience and peace of mind for the homeowner.

Quality Assurance and Customer Satisfaction

At West Shore Home, quality assurance is a priority. Our installation team consists of trained professionals who adhere to strict quality standards. We use only the finest materials and products to ensure the longevity and durability of your tub.

In this project, the installation team performed a water test to ensure that the new shower was watertight and free from any leaks. They also addressed any floor scarring and applied an etching primer to the acrylic walls, providing a smooth and finished appearance.

The entire project, from initial consultation to completion, was carried out efficiently and professionally. The West Shore Home installation team arrived at the customer’s house at 8:05 AM and completed the project by 4:30 PM, leaving the customer amazed and satisfied with the outstanding results.
