Please Note:
Shower enclosures are normally used in basements and locations were a one-piece
shower unit or tub will not fit. These styles of enclosures are designed with the
showerhead pointed towards the shower door. This design may cause small amounts
of water to splash out of the shower while in use. We recommend a throw rug
outside the shower door.
There is a wide range of fixture styles and costs for bathrooms, bars and
kitchens: so we do not include those items in our bid. This allows the
homeowner to spend as little or as much as desired. We can help you in the
selection of these items if needed.
