The two main types of tub doors are sliding and round. Sliding units are space-efficient and are good for wide openings. Typically, the opening size for this type of entry is 60 inches. Round units are curved to help maximize space, so they’re suitable for smaller bathrooms. They open inward and are usually reversible to allow for access from either the left or right.
The installation of a bathtub door is a project that can vary in price depending on several variables. The materials from which the unit is made may factor into the price. Another factor is the preparation involved before the door can be installed. If an old tub door must be removed before installation, this can also have an impact on the cost.
It can be complicated to install a bathtub door. The pieces can be heavy, which may require more than one person to do the job. Specialized tools may be required as well. If the unit is installed incorrectly, it may break, which leads to more work and a greater expense. To avoid these hassles and ensure proper installation, homeowners should hire a professional contractor to complete the installation.
