How much does the tub conversion (tub cut) service cost?

Bathway's tub conversion (tub cut) service costs $895 for steel and fiberglass tubs and $1195 for cast iron. If your house was built prior to WWII you may have a cast iron tub. For more information check our product list.

How long does the tub cutting and installation take?

The installation process takes just over an hour with a minimum of disruption. Tub cutting for cast iron tubs takes a little longer.

Is the tub cutting process messy?

Not at all! Our installers clean as they go so it leaves no mess or dust as they easily convert your tub to a shower.

What colours do the new threshold come in?

Any colour you want as long as it's white. It's in fact slightly off white, designed to match most white bathtubs.

How much can I expect the step to be reduced by the tub conversion?

Our standard threshold allows us to reduce the step by 8" for most tub conversions. A standard tub is 14" or 15", leaving a step of 6" or 7". We also manufacture a deeper threshold that can be used for deeper soaker tubs. This allows us to reduce the step by 11".

How is the water prevented from splashing onto the bathroom floor after my tub conversion?

A regular shower curtain does the trick. Your installer may need to lower the curtain rod to ensure it hangs below the opening, but we'll take care of that.

What is the warranty on bathtub conversions (tub cuts)?

There is a three (3) years warranty on all parts and labour.

See what our customers are saying about their new step-in bathtubs:
"Just a quick note to thank you for the excellent service I received from Bathway. My bathtub needed to be modified to accommodate my elderly mom who is recovering from knee replacement surgery. Thanks to you she now has improved accessibility, safety and confidence getting in and out of the tub. All without having to undergo a costly and unnecessary bathroom renovation. The installer Rob was courteous, professional and very pleasant. I will not hesitate to recommend Bathway. Thanks again from a satisfied customer. Best regards."
