BathExpress – The Realtors’ Choice

The real estate community has discovered just how easy it is for their homeowner clients to get custom-quality remodeling at a contractor price. We have become the “go to” for listing agents across the northern Virginia and Washington D.C. region. Over the last year, realtors have brought in clients who wound ups doing as many as five bathrooms in one fell swoop.

Why? When homeowners decide that it is time to sell, they need to quickly get there home into top notch condition. Doing so often means remodeling one or more bathrooms. But neither the listing agent, nor the homeowner generally want to go from store to store trying to find the right combination of tile, cabinetry, hardware, countertops, etc. Nor do they generally want to interview a slew of contractors hoping for the best.

At BathExpress, the homeowner can visit the showroom, select ALL materials and labor. Often in 30 minutes or less! The materials are the highest quality but the price is often 30-40% less than traditional design showroom prices. We typically start within a few weeks and average about seven days on-site.

It’s easier, faster and less expensive.

Converting A Bathtub To A Walk-in Shower

Before

After

Over the last couple of years, a growing number of homeowners have retained The Kitchen Guild and Bath Expressto convert bathtubs into walk-in showers. Some clients have done this as part of an overall bathroom remodel while others have done it as a standalone project. Our suppliers and manufacturers have responded by providing a number of products that are specifically designed to make the bathtub-to-shower conversion easier, less expensive and more aesthetically pleasing.

For those clients who want a practical, easy to maintain solution, we offer a solid surface shower pan with an end-drain – just like a bathtub (see photo below). This material, similar to Corian (a trademark of DuPont), is virtually indestructible. Any scratches or stains can literally be sanded out. And unlike fiberglass/acrylic shower pans, these pans do not flex or bend which can greatly reduce tile cracking or crumbling grout.

Another wonderful product for the bathtub-to-shower conversion is the Schluter Shower System. This product is manufactured by a German company (Schluter Systems) and allows us to replace your tub with a tiled floor in such a way as to reduce slope/drainage issues as well as moisture problems in the shower. We install this system complete with a completely waterproof membrane just under the tile. We then use a specialized grout that that has an additive to resist staining and crumbling. The result is a gorgeous tiled shower that is easy to maintain and extraordinarily stain resistant.
