FIBERGLASS SHOWER


-------------------------------------
I'M WONDERING IF IT IS POSSIBLE TO CUT OUT A SECTION ON BOTTOM OF FIBERGLASS SHOWER STALL. THE SHOWER STALL IS IN OKAY SHAPE, BUT I NEED TO BE ABLE TO TRANSFER A PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED INDIVIDUAL WITHOUT HAVING TO LIFT OVER BOTTOM.
ANY IDEAS APPRECIATED

Several years ago, while selling bath remodeling for Sears, I had a customer who lived in a mobile home with a fibreglass tub/surround. She wanted a shower for the same reasons you mention. We had a subcontractor who refinished tubs and repaired fibreglass. He cut out the front of the tub, patched the cut edges, and had a custom shower door company make a door to fit the new opening. I believe a shower curtain would also have worked. She was happy with the results. However, we still left a lip to keep the water from running out under the glass door. I suppose you could design some kind of dam that could be lifted out to gain access and put back in to keep the water in during use.
