Three criteria for great baths (and one that’s even more important than the others)

If you’ve ever thought about getting your bath remodeled, there’s a good chance that one of these was one of your first questions:

  • 1

    What am I going to do during the days (or weeks?!?!) of construction?

  • 2

    Will it look the way I really want it to look?

  • 3

    Who can I trust to do a good job—be on time, clean up, and take care of my home, and install a bath that lasts?

After 38 years in business and over 2 million successful bath installations, we’ve learned a lot about installing baths that people love, as well as what they love about it.

The three criteria…

We know you have busy lives, so we’ve developed a process that fits your schedule.

We know our world has exploded with choices, and it’s no different when it comes to your new bath. We offer hundreds of styles so you can custom design a bath that makes you smile every time you see it.

We know you don’t want to do this again for a long time, so we’ve created the materials and installation techniques that meet the highest of standards and expectations.

It Just Fits - Bathroom - Standards

…and the really big one

All that said, maybe the most important thing we’ve learned is that great baths start with people. Everything we do revolves around people. Of course, that includes our customers—what they want, what they need, and how they get it. Going all the way back to the beginning, the key to our business has been about being a good fit for our customers—how we fit into their lives.

And just as important, it’s about the people of Bath Fitter, from our warehouse to our offices to our installers in your homes. Our people are a top priority for us and a big part of what enables us to install baths that make people happy.

Our goal is to provide a bath remodel experience that fits your schedule, your style, and your high standards. It’s why we say, Bath Fitter doesn’t just fit your bath. We fit your life.

Here are the three important ways Bath Fitter is built around you.

When a normal day is anything but normal, we fit your schedule.

To say you have busy lives may be an understatement! The last thing you need is a disruption that lasts for days or even weeks. That’s why we developed an installation process you can count on to take only one day.

It goes back to 1984, when our founders asked a simple question: Does a bath remodel really need all of that messy demolition and all those days of construction?

Working out of their garage workshop, our founders—three brothers, actually—created a process to fit a beautiful and durable tub liner perfectly and seamlessly over an existing one. No need for demolition, saving time and costs, and sparing bathrooms from being torn apart. Over 35 years later, we’ve perfected the way we work so we can create beautiful new baths, and still take into account real people's needs. That’s how we can install your tub in one day.

We quickly perfected the way we work, and over 35 years later, we still take real people's needs into account as we create beautiful new baths. That’s how we can install your tub in one day.

We fit the process around you, not the other way around

It starts with a free consultation, done either virtually or in your home. Our Bath Fitter consultant will answer any questions and let you know exactly what to expect. Our design consultant will take detailed measurements so we’re ready to make your custom bath.

Your tub is then carefully manufactured—in buildings a lot bigger than our founder’s garage—as one-piece custom-molded acrylic sheets to fit your home’s precise measurements. It arrives ready to be installed, right over your existing bath.

On your installation day, we fit your schedule by letting you know when we’ll be at your door, and we show up on time. We clean up as if it were our own house. And we do it all in a day.

Our installers aren’t just pros, they’re people, and they care about finding out what’s important to you and doing the job right. It’s no surprise that they get great reviews. What’s amazing is, they also get remembered. Our customers often know their installer’s name and pass it on to family and friends. It’s that memorable of a positive experience.

When you’re tired of looking at your tired old bath, we fit your style.

Have you ever stared at your bath and cringed? As baths age, or our tastes evolve, we’ve all done it!

When you imagine a new bath, you may think about your tub shape, or color, or your wall pattern and accessories. The faucets! The doors! The wainscotting! It all matters when it comes to making your bath look amazing.

You may also think about your specific needs, depending on where you are in life, who you live with, and what your situational needs may be. We’ve got you covered.

Your bath, your way

Trends come and go but your Bath Fitter tub will always be in style. And it will be your style. Because you get to design it, with our fun and easy-to-use interactive Design Your Own Bath (DYOB) tool on the Bath Fitter website.

With DYOB, you can pick everything from the tub front to the walls, shelves and soap dishes. We offer hundreds of design options so you can play and plan. Handheld,  adjustable, or velocity showerhead? So many to choose from. Go to town!


Bath Fitter’s DYOB tool also enables you to add functional accessories like grips or rods to help keep your new bath as safe as possible. Anyone with disabilities can feel more confident and help prevent falls with easy-access showers and ADA-compliant shower solutions. With Bath Fitter, style and safety go hand in hand, so you can feel at ease with a variety of accessories that also look great.

But wait, there’s (way) more

Because we fit our baths around you, we go to great lengths—and interesting places—to make sure your bath is what you want and need. Mobile home? Dorm? Hotel? Check, check, and check. Day camps, cruise ships…there’s almost nowhere we can’t, or haven’t, installed a great bath. We can work around just about anything. Try us!

As long as we’ve been doing this, we keep coming up with new design possibilities. We’re here to make your dreams come true and we won’t be satisfied until your bath is just as you want it.

When high quality is the only quality that matters, we fit your standards

The only way to do things

At Bath Fitter, we know you only want to do this once. So we only do it one way: The right way. It may not always be the easiest way, but as far as we’re concerned, it’s the only way, and it’s how we’ve been doing it since we opened our doors.

We control the entire process, from manufacturing to installation. We only use our Bath Fitter people, never a third party supplier or someone we don’t know. Our people know our process and repeat it successfully. It’s the ultimate in quality control.

To make sure our materials are the very best, we manufacture our own premium one-piece high-gloss acrylic sheets. They’re molded into tub liners that fit precisely over your old bath, or seamless walls that are installed over your existing walls, for a watertight fit.  We make no compromises, so you don’t feel like you’ve made one.

A lifetime guarantee? Really? Really!

We’re so confident in our quality and durability, every bath comes with a lifetime guarantee. Really.

The other Most Important Thing

Not only are we committed to the highest quality product, we’re committed to the very best people. Remember when we mentioned at the top of this post that great baths revolve around great people? It’s still true down here at the bottom. In fact, we like to think our people shine as brightly as our baths. We’re a family-run business that treats our people like family, earning “Best Places to Work” accolades many years running. We like to have fun together too!

It Just Fits, in more ways than one

Ever since our founding brothers answered the question “Does a bath remodel really need all of that messy demolition and all those days of construction?” The answer is still no! We’ve been fitting beautiful and high-quality tubs over old ones in ways that fit your schedule, your style, and your high standards.

Our goal in everything we do is to perfectly fit your bath, and your life. It starts with our people, and it ends with you.
