Recently, we explored the professional Bath fitter product during The 2021 Pittsburgh Kitchen and Bath Show, a free event that we presented with Pittsburgh’s own Cabinet World. Together, we organized a live, virtual event to showcase important aspects of home improvement industry. What you need to know about bathroom remodeling, from design, to the remodeling process and more, is available to watch now in the recordings of our April 2021 Show. So check out our social media, and be sure to like our page so that you catch the next event.
Make sure you come back to this blog post, though, for a breakdown of a topic we covered during the show: the professional Bath Fitter product.
The professional Bath Fitter product is truly one of a kind. It stands out from the rest in terms of its design, materials, and overall quality. Below we’ll be taking a look at the main three aspects that make our product perfect for homeowners who want to remodel their bathroom:
- One-piece seamless walls
- Acrylic build
- Lifetime Warranty
One-Piece Seamless Walls
There’s a few features of the professional Bath Fitter product that make it truly remarkable. The first of these would be our one-piece, seamless walls. We create a custom wall for each of our customers that fits their entire shower or bathtub area all the way around – no matter the shape. The one-piece, seamless walls that we create fit perfectly into your bathroom because we take multiple measurements before manufacturing the final product.
No other bathroom remodeler uses Bath fitter’s unique, one-piece wall system, said team member Jeff Barton.
“Nobody else in the industry does this,” Jeff explains, “We are the only company to offer the one-piece wall system.”
Other companies in the home improvement industry will put shower and bathtub walls together on site from multiple pieces, but Bath Fitter has developed a much better approach.
Jeff was one of our speakers during The 2021 Pittsburgh Kitchen and Bath Show. A few more of our experienced associates, including Jesi Villao, also participated in this special live event. Jesi shared additional information about how we create our one-piece seamless walls:
We actually take 16 measurements of your wall, (because not everyone’s wall is exactly the same)… bring them on site to your home, and carefully transport these walls into the bathroom. And pretty much you just have to install it up and over the tub. We do have three types of adhesives that we utilize in order for the walls to stay put, and I tell you they are very, very strong… So we’ll go ahead and install the walls, which are nice and seamless, since it is a one-piece system, and we’ll go ahead and caulk, just the one line below the walls around the tub and make everything watertight and sealed properly.
What our one-piece, seamless wall brings you are the benefits of easy cleanup, low maintenance, and leak resistance. Whereas showers and bathtubs installed by other companies might require frequent redoing of caulk or grouting between grooves in the wall, the professional Bath Fitter product is hassle-free. Clean-up with a Bath Fitter shower or bathtub only takes a quick spray of your preferred cleaning mixture and a gentle wipe-down.
Jeff goes on to mention that it’s not easy customizing a wall for all of our customers. We have to make sure our measurements are precise and then convert those measurements into your dream shower or bathtub, since we ourselves manufacture the professional Bath Fitter product. The end result, though, is worth all the careful effort that we put into it. Jeff said:
You know, this is a very difficult process… [because] we actually manufacture… We literally have to measure your area in 16 different dimensions and then take that wall, be able to cut, bend, and deliver that to your house – and it fits perfectly in that area.
That perfect fit leads to another benefit of Bath Fitter’s professional product, besides the ease of clean-up and maintenance. Our one-piece, seamless wall system also improves the actual remodeling process. Because each wall is customized to fit perfectly in your bathroom – as is – no demolition is required to install your new shower or bathtub. So, you can avoid the mess of a typical bathroom remodel when you work with us.
Working with Bath Fitter means that your home will look the same as it did before we got there – with the addition of your dream shower or bathtub, of course.
Not only will the remodeling process be clean, it will be quick and efficient. We always provide fast installation during home improvement projects, so that your new shower or bathtub will typically be ready within one day. Occasionally, a more complex job such as a tub to shower conversion will a little longer, but we always complete projects as quickly as we can work with high-quality.
Jesi explained we often outpace others in the industry:
“Usually the job can be a day…” he said, “[For] a job that normally… does take two days, we can actually bring everything on site and prepare all your walls and complete the job in one day.”
Yet while our professional Bath Fitter product will be ready in a day, it will last you for much, much longer. The professional Bath Fitter product is designed to endure, so that you don’t have to worry about repairs or the usual wear and tear of time. At Bath Fitter, we believe that our customers should be able to relax in their bathroom, which is why we prepared a blog post for you on that very topic.
The reason you can rest easy with our professional product in your home is due, in part, to its second outstanding feature: the materials that go into it.
Acrylic Showers and Tubs
At Bath fitter, we use only the best materials, and one that certainly stands out is acrylic.
Acrylic is a lightweight, durable thermoplastic that is often used as a shatter-proof alternative to glass. It is easy to clean, retains its original sheen, and is completely waterproof because it is nonporous. All that makes acrylic an excellent material for showers and bathtubs.
Acrylic showers and bathtubs take advantage of the nature of acrylic. Because they are lightweight, they can be installed at any level of your home. Their nonporous make-up also prevents water from leaking into your bathroom walls, and their easy-to-clean surface means an acrylic shower or bathtub will be shining long after it is installed.
More than that, though, Bath Fitter has what we call “full dimensional acrylic.” This is unique to our company in the home improvement industry and part of our seamless one-piece wall system. Full dimensional acrylic maximizes the qualities of this material that already make it ideal for showers and bathtubs.
Because our unique system allows for no seams, the waterproof nature of acrylic is more effective in our professional product than in other bathroom remodeling products. The same goes for its ease of maintenance, as Jeff talked about in even greater detail:
The difference in our acrylic than what you’d find in any type of home center or anything is we have what’s called a full dimensional acrylic… That means that instead of lasting five years or less, that means you get 30 plus years on this product here. It’s a completely non porous material. So what you have is ease of cleaning, all you got to do is spray it off was spray it down and wipe it off. It’s very strong… It’ll look like the day we put this in 30 plus years from now.
Jeff then shared an amazing story to illustrate the long-lasting quality of the professional Bath Fitter acrylic product:
It was a customer that had the shower installed about 15 years ago – 15 years. When I walked in there, I was stunned. It looked literally like nobody had ever used this system before… The walls, the shower area, everything was completely clean. The caulking was still white; 15 years… It was really incredible. So that’s what you get when you use acrylic, this type of full dimensional acrylic that we use here.
If you’d like a few tips that will help your keep your shower or bathtub looking new for even longer, be sure to check out our blog post about good cleaning practices. We go over everything that you need to know about keeping your bathroom pristine.
The long-lasting nature of acrylic goes hand in hand with Bath Fitter’s life-time warranty. Our goal is to ensure that you get the most out of our professional Bath Fitter product, from its first day in your home to the last. This stems, once again, from our desire to help our customers enjoy their bathroom remodel, from the beginning of the home improvement project to the end.
That’s also why we fit to your schedule, style, and standards, rather than leaving you to accommodate us. If you want to learn more about how we make your experience with Bath Fitter the best possible for bathroom remodels, check out the Three Criteria for Great Baths.

While you’re on the phone or visiting us near Pittsburgh, you’ll also want to ask about personalizing the professional Bath Fitter product. There are many ways to make your next shower or bathtub your own, through a selection of style, color, and accessories.
We know how important it is to have a bathroom that is tailored to you in terms of style, functionality, and all other things. As Cabinet World pointed out in a blog post of their own, it’s important that homeowners have the right bathroom for them; one that satisfies them now and has the durability to serve them in the future.
Jeff shared how Bath Fitter makes its professional product highly personalizable during The 2021 Pittsburgh Kitchen and Bath Show:
There’s so many different options… We have a lot of different options of patterns you can get for the wall… You can get a different type of tub front. Instead of just flat, you can get some lines; any designs that you want in there… You can even get shelving in here, soap dishes, you name it, whatever you want. The sky’s the limit, there’s four separate colors you can get with us, and then a multitude of patterns.
With the professional Bath Fitter product, you won’t be getting just any shower or bathtub. You’ll be getting exactly what you want for your next bathroom remodel – and at a competitive price. Jeff explained that each standard installation includes the option of two free accessories, be it shelves, soap dishes, grab handles, a combination, etc. And of course, all accessories will be installed with your new shower or bathtub within one day, on average.
It’s not easy getting the professional Bath Fitter product ready for use so quickly, but our experienced professionals are more than ready to meet the challenge.
“It takes a little bit of elbow grease, you know…” said Jesi, describing how heavy lifting is sometimes necessary, “and it’s kind of nice that I can kind of exercise while I’m working. So it’s kind of fun.”
We definitely love what we do here at Bath Fitter, helping homeowners make their dream bathroom remodel a reality through our professional Bath Fitter product.
