Things You Must Know Before Buying a Walk-In Bathtub

Unlike many other types of home improvement projects, having a walk-in bathtub installed is usually done out of necessity. Walk-in tubs are an excellent option for individuals with mobility issues or those who are getting up in years and want to age gracefully in the comfort of their own home.

Many slip-and-fall accidents occur in traditional bathtubs with high thresholds and slippery surfaces, which is why walk-in tubs have become such a popular product. With low entry thresholds, non-slip surfaces, and a variety of other safety options, walk-in tubs provide a stress-free bathing experience and are a huge part of independent living. However, before you choose your walk-in bathtub, there are a few important things you must know:

Make Sure You Choose the Correct Size & Design

Depending on your physical or mobility issues, you may need extra space to best utilize your walk-in bathtub. Be sure to take these factors into account when choosing your tub, and don’t just settle for a standard tub that fits in the available space in your bathroom.

Select the Comfort & Safety Features That Best Fit Your Needs

All walk-in tubs offer hydrotherapy features, so be sure to choose the options that will be beneficial for your specific condition or needs. Perhaps more importantly, be sure to avoid any features that may be unsafe for you. In many cases, your doctor will be able to suggest the hydrotherapy features that are medically appropriate for you and may help improve your quality of life. You should also consider which available safety features, such as easy-to-grip handrails and ultra-low thresholds, will be beneficial to you.

The NEWPRO process was fantastic.

They showed us a full 3D rendering of the final result before anything ever got started.

Peter & Jessica

Window Replacement Project

Quality of the windows was superior to the others we looked at. Now, our windows tilt in, so it's going to be much easier to clean them.

Pool House Doors Project

Cold stays out in the winter. Cold stays in during the summer.

The best thing I love is the craftsmanship from NEWPRO. You'd never know we had the old door cut out because it was rotted from the New England weather.

The sales guy was very thorough and answered all of my questions. The guys that installed the windows were fantastic.

My heating bills have dropped significantly — by about 30% than what they were before.
