What Homeowners Say About Bath Fitter
Here’s a sample of Bath Fitter customer reviews:
“After we contacted Bath Fitter for a quote, they came into our home and reviewed what we wanted. I really did not know what to expect but was very impressed with the professionalism and amount of detail put into our bath remodel. I left for work one day, and when I returned later in the day the work was done. Beautiful job. Very impressive work. It is sometimes difficult to find good contractors for small jobs, but I would highly recommend Bath Fitter.” —Laura S. via Best Company
“The fact that Bath Fitter can come and install our new shower assembly and pretty much have a brand new bathroom update in one day is awesome. It comes together in one piece so the clean up and mess are not even a problem.” —Tara G. via Best Company
“I’m so disappointed in this new tub and shower. Tacky trim placed around shower walls. No where did I see that in any of their pictures, nor was that described to me in sales consultation. I wish I had [gone] with another company. I will even have to touch up the paint on my walls and repair some minor damage.” —Kim W. via Best Company
“Nice install. But found out it has been [slowly] leaking for more than a year. Bath Fitter’s lifetime warranty is just for the tub and enclosure, not the plumbing, which was done incorrectly. And they say they will not cover the repairs and new drywall that needs to be replaced. Very disappointed in that the leak did start within their one year warranty period but was not discovered until after that period, so they will not cover cost to repair. A bit disappointed in Bath Fitter of Utah!” —Richard G. via Best Company
