HandyPro Bathroom Remodel Dallas Professional Reveals the Advantages and disadvantages of a walk-in Bathtub

With service by the local handyman the challenges are relieved to make the walk-in tub the most suitable remedy for the aging or physically challenged homeowner

The Dallas bathroom remodel pros can address the most difficult challenges in the home to improve accessibility and mobility.  A typical bathroom with a step-in bath tub and basic configuration can make things difficult for golden-agers or physically disabled people. With the growing number of retired people who choose to stay in their home instead of in an assisted care facility comes the demand for better ease of access and maneuverability in the bathroom. If senior living homes can have walk-in baths and roll-in showers, then why not apartments?

Walk-in bathtubs are outfitted with an entry door so the user has access without needing to step over the side to get in. When closed the door seals securely to prevent water from leaking. Walk in tubs can be emptied fast for ease of use or emergency exit. Walk in tubs must be expertly installed to promote effective performance and safety.

Aaron Abbott, owner of HandyPro Handyman Service (http://youtu.be/FDcRcyl7RVc), presents ADA compliant senior home remodeling working with universal design principles such as walk in bath tubs and barrier free showers. Walk in tubs allow many conveniences along with their safe entry design. Walk in bath tubs Dallas contractors and installers can make bath time less troublesome for people with mobility issues with attributes like slip prevention, hand rails and comfortable seating. Walk in tubs can include a range of bonus features such as bubble jets and movable shower heads. A walk in bathtub will add value to a home if is located in a retirement district.

There are a few downsides to a walk-in tub although the pros outweigh the cons. The user needs to get into the tub and shut door before filling it with water so it could be a little cool as they wait for it to fill up. As a result of their large size the homeowner might just need to have a larger water heater installed. Waiting for the bath tub to drain before getting out is another issue.

Walk-in bathtub manufacturers have made a number of upgrades to address these matters with better temperature controls, fast-fill faucets and fast draining; but, this innovation will increase the expense of installing a walk in bath tub. Walk in bathtubs are available in a variety of models to accommodate different bathroom sizes and configurations. As an example, a smaller sized bathroom may necessitate a walk in bathtub with a door that opens inward.
