Walk In Tubs – Providing Quality & Comfort
Past customers of Sims Remodeling who owned earlier versions of walk in tubs were concerned about leaking and longevity.
Current designs have had design improvements including –
- Doors equipped with a double gasket (with a lifetime warranty)
- Hinge running the full length of the door (making the door sturdier)
Some tubs come equipped with popular brand name faucets and a slider bar for the shower head, which can be used as a handheld shower or as a stand-up shower. Most tubs also have the option of adding a heater to maintain water temperature.
The most important issue is these tubs allow people to live in their homes in their later years.
