It’s a fun process that will keep you engaged in your project. We’ll also provide you with all the essential information about our company and product line.

There are no surprises with Shugarman’s Bath – when we provide you with a price, that’s the price you’ll pay. You won’t find any secretive language in the contract that will add hidden costs later.


Custom Ordering The Materials

When you’re ready to proceed with the project, we’ll custom order your materials. Every customer’s materials are ordered specifically for their wet area remodel to ensure they are an exact fit for the requirements – we don’t do cookie-cutter options for any part of our services in San Diego.

Your new shower will be customized down to the inch, which guarantees it will perfectly fit your space and match the design of your bathroom. In addition, you can rest assured knowing that we only use premium materials that will withstand the wear and tear of daily use, remaining in like-new condition for years.

We’ll notify you as soon as your materials are ordered, once they arrive on-site, and again when we’re ready to complete the installation. There will never be a time when you don’t know what’s happening with your remodel.


The Installation

When we complete a bathtub conversion to shower in Spring Valley, CA, we do things the right way – or as we like to call them, the Shugarman’s Way. Our wet area remodeling process is straightforward and misses none of the important details. We keep it simple with only four steps.

The first essential part of any tub and shower remodeling project is to strip the entire wet area down to the studs. This process is the only way to identify if there is underlying damage that could compromise the longevity of your new shower system. We are specifically looking for underlying moisture and plumbing issues that must be repaired.

If we find damage, we systematically repair it. Many other companies will let you down at this point because they cut corners and don’t rebuild the foundation of the wet area. We will repair all moisture and stud damage, replacing any studs that are beyond repair. Then we’ll level the walls and subfloor before solidifying the foundation of your new shower.

Once the repairs are completed, our factory-trained installers will replace all the critical parts you won’t see once the tub-to-shower conversion is complete. This includes things like the p-trap and shower valve. By doing this, they’re ensuring everything will perform exactly as it should.

Here at Shugarman’s Bath, we provide a “never-leak” system, and deliver on this by installing several crucial parts. These include a waterproof backer board, a high-quality shower pan, BP-Cor2 material, and inside corner strips.


After The Installation

Our installers will thoroughly clean the area once the installation is complete. Your home will be returned to you just like we received it. The only sign you’ll have that we were ever there is your beautiful new shower system.
