Hassle-free baths and Christmas in July with Bath R Us

No more worries about gross mold and mildew, and no stress over the planning and installation. Can a bathroom from Bath R Us really be this easy?

Tile can look nice in a shower or tub surround.

But it also can create a major headache, cautions Chad Howman, owner of Bath R Us.

“Tile grout is porous, and when water gets into the grout it can get behind the tile,” Chad explains. “Because mold and mildew grows where it’s wet and dark, you can end up with a big patch of mold or mildew behind your tile before it even comes through the grout. Once you get mold and mildew on your grout, you’re literally just scrubbing it every week trying to kill it, which is impossible when you can’t get to the source of it. So although it’s beautiful, tile is not ideal for the shower area.”

Fortunately, Chad suggests, Bath R Us—the Medina company that now serves happy customers in four states—offers a product that has the look of tile—including grout lines—but without the maintenance, mold and mildew that often come with real ceramic tile.

“You don’t have to spend much time sealing it, scrubbing it or cleaning it,” he says. “You literally wipe it off with a little bit of soap and water before you jump out of the shower and it’s sparkling clean. It’s healthier for you, too, because it’s not good to be breathing in mold and mildew.”

And, Chad adds, surrounds from

Bath R Us look spectacular.

“We have some startling new colors and designs this year, including charmeuse, glacier and lightning,” Chad says. “The hottest trends this year are definitely contemporary colors—the nice, clean, elegant look of the whites and the grays. That’s what a lot of people are remodeling with, and it’s also what a lot of new construction is being built with nowadays. The customers have spoken and we have delivered.”

Earning the distinction of being a BCI Elite dealer means Bath R Us offers gorgeous, top-quality tubs, showers and other quality products from BCI—and also ensures they are impeccably installed for long-lasting, trouble-free enjoyment.

Bath R Us has done just that for three years as of April 20, Chad adds.

“Since we launched in Northeast Ohio in 2020, we’ve expanded to cover the major markets in Ohio as well as Pittsburgh, Detroit and Indianapolis,” he says. “We keep replicating our business model of working with top- quality design consultants, installers and management teams in every new market we go into. It’s been a winning strategy for our happy customers, and also for us.”

With a Bath R Us shower, cleaning is a breeze. Wipe with a little bit of soap and water and it’s sparkling clean.

Chad notes that Bath R Us’ more than 460 Google reviews carry an average 4.9-star satisfaction rating out of 5.

Installation is a key component of customers’ satisfaction, Chad insists.

“Securing the best product is half the battle in home renovation projects,” he says. “The other half is making sure it’s installed correctly.”

Earning the distinction of being a BCI Elite dealer means Bath R Us offers gorgeous, top-quality tubs, showers and other quality products from BCI—and also ensures they are impeccably installed for long-lasting, trouble-free enjoyment, Chad explains.

“Being an elite dealer allows us to offer a transferrable warranty on our product,” he says. “BCI will only back that warranty for dealers that have earned its confidence. To achieve that certification, they’ve come out to our job sites to make sure all of our factory-trained installers are installing the product to their expectations.”

Bath R Us carries high-quality vanities with all different shapes and sizes and colors of vanity tops.

There’s more to a spectacular bathroom than just the tub or shower, Chad says. That’s why Bath R Us’ renovations go beyond tubs and showers, he assures.

“There are companies that will offer you an acrylic shower,” he says. “We don’t stop there. We carry high-quality vanities with all different shapes sizes and colors of vanity tops. Our vanities are constructed from furniture-grade wood and feature soft-closing doors and drawers. The drawers are dovetailed wood, not particleboard like you’ll find at home improvement stores. They come factory-stained or painted and the tops are all one-piece integrated bowl systems made from cultured marble and are available in 10 different colors.”

Plus, he says, the vanities are American-made.

“We get them direct from the factory,” Chad adds. “That means there’s no price markup from the supply houses, which means we can offer more competitive prices to our customers.”

Flooring is another important part of a fabulous new bathroom, Chad emphasizes. Bath R Us installs beautiful, water-resistant and low-maintenance luxury vinyl tile.

“We have six attractive colors to coordinate perfectly with our acrylic showers and tubs,” Chad says. “Our stylish vanities, toilets, flooring and other bathroom components are also why

Bath R Us is the top bathroom replacement company in Northeast Ohio.”

While you dream of a Silent Night relaxing in a brand-new tub, Chad “Santa Claus” Howman, owner of Bath R Us, is planning to deliver Christmas in July. And if you’re on his “nice” list, you just may find yourself unwrapping a brand-new black 2023 Nissan Altima next month.

To get on that list, you simply have to sign up to get a no-cost estimate on a bathroom remodel by Thursday, August 3.

“If you’re in need of a bathroom remodel this year, it’s never been a better time,” Chad says. “Starting this month, you can schedule a free estimate to be entered into a drawing for a new car (on an 18-month lease). To be eligible, you have to book your estimate by August 3. We’re going to announce the winner on August 4, and somebody will be able to drive off in their new Nissan on August 7.”
