Bath Planet of Ottawa: Beautiful bathrooms in a day
Anyone who’s had their bathroom renovated knows how painful it can be, involving weeks or months of inconvenience, not to mention construction noise and debris.
Bath Planet of Ottawa is committed to turning bathroom remodels into a positive experience. The recently opened dealership is part of a successful North American franchise that prides itself on delivering stylish, high-quality, low-maintenance bathroom installations in just one day.
Not surprisingly, the one-day turnaround is a huge draw for customers, said Pascal Dupuis, owner of the Ottawa dealership on Cyrville Road. “People get to enjoy their new bathrooms much sooner and don’t have to deal with tradespeople going in and out of their homes all the time. They also appreciate that our products are elegant, durable and provide the look of ceramic tile and granite without the grouting, mess or maintenance.”
Bath Planet customers benefit from an exclusive line of acrylic tub, shower and wall systems, along with accessories from high-end suppliers such as Moen Canada and Fleurco, all available in a variety of colours, patterns, sizes and styles. Accessibility and aging-in-place bathroom systems are a specialty. These include walk-in tubs, step-thru inserts, grab bars, barrier-free shower bases, and tub-to-shower conversions, all designed to support independent living.
In addition, Bath Planet’s products feature long-lasting, easy-care surfaces. “They’re made of non-porous acrylic which discourages mould and mildew, and they won’t peel, crack, chip or fade,” Dupuis said. “Just wipe away residue with warm water and soap, and you’re done.”
All Bath Planet products carry the prestigious Good Housekeeping Seal, as well as a two-year limited warranty from the Good Housekeeping Research Institute, and Bath Planet’s lifetime warranty that customers can pass on to a new owner if they sell their home within two years of an installation.
Although jobs vary in complexity, remodels can be completed in a day unless they involve cabinetry or flooring, said Dupuis. That day may run as late as 8 p.m., but of the 2,500 bathroom remodels he has supervised, that’s only happened twice.
He stressed that the remodels never sacrifice quality for speed. Workmanship is thorough and problem areas aren’t ignored. For example, all bath tubs are replaced rather than relined, Dupuis explained. “This gives us a chance to check the condition of the plumbing underneath. By the same token, before installing a wall surround, we take out part of the existing wall to see if there’s mould or any other damage that needs to be fixed first.” Materials are custom-cut and fitted on-site.
Costs for a Bath Planet remodel depend on the scope of the work, but typically range from under $4,000 for installation of a basic white tub and wall surround to $9,500 for a walk-in bath.
