Bathroom Renovation with Bathtub
Many of our customers want to remove their old-fashioned undermount bathtubs with a contemporary and timeless freestanding bathtub. Why?
Well for starters they are old and creaky. The majority of these bathtubs were installed when the house was built. Materials deteriorate over time causing leaks.
Aesthetics plays a huge role in deciding whether to upgrade your bathtub. A freestanding bathtub presents a centerpiece for your bathroom. It becomes the focal point of beauty and creates a quaint home spa sanctuary.
