Free DIY Tub To Shower Conversion Guide

A free step-by-step guide to replacing your old bathtub tub with a new walk-in shower in less than a few days.

Who We Are

Let’s face it, if you want a one-day bathroom remodel, you have LOTS of companies to choose from. But here’s what you, the homeowner, don’t know…

Most one-day bathroom remodeling companies are nationwide brands with sky-high overhead. To turn a profit, they’ll install cheap, flimsy liners….and charge you an arm and a leg for it.

Here at Eight Hour Shower, we’re a little different. As an independent company, we can offer PREMIUM bathroom materials with unbeatable value. Not only are our bath and shower systems 400% thicker than standard liners, but our prices are about 33% LESS than corporate bathroom companies.

Bottom line… we’ll transform your bathroom in as little as one day and at the highest caliber of quality.
