Do you find that you rarely use your bathtub? If so, a tub-to-shower conversion could be the perfect remodeling project to make your Newark, DE bathroom feel more functional for your family’s needs. When homeowners come to us to start planning a conversion project, one of the first things they typically ask about is how much it will cost. 

Unfortunately, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer. The best way to start budgeting for your tub-to-shower conversion project is to understand the different factors that have the greatest impact on the cost. 

We’ve outlined those factors below to help you get a better sense of how to budget for your project.

The Size of Your New Shower

When you work with the D&C Bath LLC team, you can choose from a number of different shower styles and models, helping you completely customize your space. Of course, the price of your project will depend on the size of your new shower. 

A large replacement shower with high-end accessories will have a more expensive base price than a smaller, more basic shower without any frills. 

The Materials You Choose

Along those same lines, the material you choose for your new shower will also impact the total cost you’ll pay. The price of a tile shower, for instance, largely depends on the square footage price of the specific tile you choose. 

Our team proudly offers high-quality acrylic showers which are a luxurious yet cost-effective option, keeping the price of your project lower. Made with Microban® protection that helps prevent mold and mildew growth, these showers are easy to keep clean so they look great for years to come. 

Potential Repairs

In some cases, when our team removes your old bathtub, we notice areas that need to be repaired, such as wall patching, pipe replacements, water damage, etc. Of course, we can’t account for these repairs in our original estimate since we won’t know about them until your project is underway. 

However, rest assured that we do everything in our power to prevent surprise expenses during a project. If any unexpected repairs are needed, we’ll communicate them with you and get your approval before moving forward. 

The Contractor You Hire

The final factor that plays the biggest role in the price of your project is the contractor you hire for the job. All contractors have different labor rates and material prices, so the price of your project can wildly vary depending on who you hire. 

Here at D&C Bath LLC, we pride ourselves on offering fair pricing to our customers and we will never overcharge you for our labor or materials. We’re also proud to offer financing and special discounts to make it easier than ever to remodel your bathroom at a price that works with your budget. Ask us about how to save!
