When stepping into your bathtub becomes difficult and unsafe, it’s nice to know that NW Tub & Shower offers several options.
Replace any bathtub with an easy to enter walk in shower pan with a beautiful and durable shower surround. The new shower pan converts any standard bathtub into a walk in shower.

NW Tub & Shower also manufactures sturdy hiqh quality acrylic shower bases – custom sizes available! There are many choices of color and pattern upgrades available for the surround. Threshold choices vary from standard showers to low profile and barrier free (roll-in) shower pans. With NW Tub & Shower, your shower can be ready in as little as 2 days.
We offer many options for Walk in Bathtubs. Installation of a Walk In tub enables you to bathe with ease and avoid the difficulty and stress of lowering down then getting out of a standard bathtub. Choices vary starting from an economical soaking Walk in tub to one with options of air massage or hydro-jet systems. Walk in tubs are designed to fit in the existing space of your tub or shower, so make the most of your space! Regain your independence and call NW Tub & Shower for your Walk in tub today. Rejuvenate your mind and body and release tension and body aches with a luxurious soak that you have been missing. Visit our walk in tub service page.
Walk Thru Tub Cut Out:
The Walk Thru tub cut out eliminates the daunting step into a standard bathtub and converts your existing tub into a shower with no mess and no demolition. By converting your bathtub with a tub cut, you reduce that awkward bathtub barrier–a step that sometimes seems like a mountain–to a safe, easy step of a few inches. NW Tub & Shower is able to install tub cut downs into standard built-in skirted bathtubs made from cast iron, steel or fiberglass. Bathtub cut outs save thousands over conventional remodeling and are usable within hours of completion.
We also offer custom tub modifiers. A modifier is the same concept as a Walk Thru tub cut out, but we have the ability to make a custom mold for each style of tub enabling you to choose a custom sized opening. The modifier is designed for multiple units such as retirement homes.
We provide professional installations of Grab Bars with ADA compliant fasteners or into reinforced wood blocking for a safe, sturdy and secure grab bar. We are able to permanently install grab bars into all types of shower surrounds including tile, acrylic, fiberglass, cultured marble, or drywall.
We can also install a permanent adhesive non-skid mat to the bottom of any shower or tub to add traction and stability.
