We are proud to announce that trusted news source, RTV6, The Indy Channel, partnered with ConsumerAffairs to compile a list of Indianapolis’ best walk-in tub companies – and Indy Renovation made the cut!
At Indy Renovation, we know that standard bathroom features don’t meet the needs of every customer. That is why we install custom walk-in tubs and showers for those who are at a higher risk of bathroom-related injuries, such as the elderly or the disabled. When we install accessible walk-in showers and tubs, we take no chances with quality. We expertly install every feature in the bathroom to lessen the risk of injury to users, allowing them to function more independently.
Why Choose a Walk-In Tub
Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries among Americans over the age of 65, one-quarter of whom suffer a fall each year. Walk-in tubs can go a long way toward reducing injuries. These tubs come with a watertight entrance door, a built-in seat, and anti-slip flooring. This makes it easy for users to step directly into the tub and sit down comfortably. Most tubs also come with grab bars and a hand-held showerhead as standard features.
There are numerous options for additional features and tub types beyond the standard models. There are basic soaker models, aerotherapy tubs, hydrotherapy tubs, wheelchair-accessible tubs, and bariatric tubs for larger individuals. Custom features may include a neck rest, aromatherapy, chromatherapy, anti-scald valve, or an in-line heater to keep water from cooling.
In addition to safety benefits, there are many health benefits to a walk-in or soaker tub, including:
- Relax muscle tension
- Relieve stress
- Prevent and soothe pain in muscles and joints
- Promote circulation
- Enable stretching
- Reduce the effects of chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia
Walk-In Tub Cost
The average cost of a walk-in tub and its installation is between $5,000 and $7,000 for a simple soaking tub. Some walk-in tubs are less expensive, while other fully-customized options with all available features can range up to $20,000.
Installation, on average, costs around $1,500, depending on how much work needs to be done to accommodate a new walk-in tub. This may vary if, for example, you need to install a larger water heater or need other electrical, plumbing, or renovation work. Most walk-in tubs will fit in the space previously occupied by a standard tub.
