Read this blog to find out what to expect during the quote appointment and how Authorized Dealers calculate your custom Walk-In Bath price.
What Happens During Your Free Quote Appointment?
During your free quote appointment, a KOHLER Authorized Dealer arrives at your home at the scheduled date and time. The Authorized Dealer normally asks about any previously completed home improvement projects and renovations.
The Authorized Dealer also explains the features and benefits of a walk-in bathtub and identifies your goals for the Walk-In Bath installation. Next, the Authorized Dealer reviews the aspects of your home that influence the installation process and labor, such as stairs and existing bathroom fixtures.
How Does KOHLER Calculate the Price of Labor and Product?
Since every Walk-In Bath and home is different, the total cost varies for each bathroom. Here are a few factors that KOHLER Authorized Dealers use to determine the ultimate cost for labor and product:
Location of Tub
It typically costs between $2,500 and $8,000 to install a walk-in tub, depending on the complexity of the job. The location of the tub is a major factor when considering the level of work required. For example, if your bathroom is on the second or third floor, then this might make the installation process take longer, which could affect the cost.
Size of Bathroom
KOHLER Authorized Dealers also use your bathroom size to calculate the cost for installation. This includes measuring the door widths, stair widths, and entrance walkways to ensure that you can safely access your new Walk-In Bath. Your installers may need to modify the doorways during the installation to make room for your new Walk-In Bath.
Design of Current Bathtub
During your quote appointment, the KOHLER Authorized Dealer looks at the length and width of the existing tub or shower, along with the distance between the tub and toilet. To promote safety, the rep also notes any existing safety bars and walls around the tub.
Water Heater Capacity and Electrical Panel Type
The water heater and electrical panels are important for powering your Walk-In Bath and its comfort features, such as whirlpool jets and a heated backrest. The KOHLER Authorized Dealer also looks at your bathroom’s hot water and electric capabilities to identify any required renovations for installing your Walk-In Bath. KOHLER recommends that you have a new 50+ gallon water tank to maintain the preferred water temperature in the bath, which can cost between $1,500-$5,000.
Walk-In Bath Design Choices
You can customize your Walk-In Bath to create your most comfortable experience. Choose from a variety of bathroom wall designs, bath colors, and faucet finishes that complement your Walk-In Bath with perfect harmony.
