Tips for Replacing Tubs and Showers

If you are replacing an existing tub, be sure to measure  and ensure it will fit in the same opening.  Be sure the plumbing and tub drain are in the same place.  Tubs are referred to as right or left drains.

Whirlpool tubs and tub surrounds are big.  Be sure they will fit the stairway and bathroom door.

Decide if you want shower curtains or a door.  If you convert to shower doors you can always go back, just realize that removing the door’s side rails will leave small holes in the walls.
