A Simple, Quick And Easy Solution To My Problem Getting Into My Bath

A simple, quick and easy solution to my problem getting into my bath

What was it like for me to have my bath converted with UDOOR

I’ve been living with arthritis for about 10 years and it slowed me down but has never stopped me from living my life. I go to Tai Chi, I go for walks with my walking group and I love spending time with my grandsons and helping my daughter out where I can.

I found it was becoming difficult to lift my legs up and I needed a bit of help or extra time to do things like getting in and out of the car or get up from low chairs. It has also been getting more and more difficult to get into my bath to use my shower, but my knees and hips are not going to stop me from bathing.

After a fall I knew it had gotten to the point where I had to make a change. My daughter was worried about me having another accident and arranged a consultation to see if I could have a wetroom put in. The cost was phenomenal and it would mean getting rid of my bath which my husband was dead against.

A friend of mine told me about UDOOR and after I googled them, I called them up and got a quote in a few minutes which was about a quarter of the cost of getting a new wetroom. My cast iron bath in my little bathrooms was not a problem for them, they wouldn’t touch the tile work so no need for decorating afterwards!

I was told that it would only take a day to put in, they didn’t need any deposit and that I would get a warranty. I considered all my options and UDOOR was the best option for me, it was cheaper, quicker and easier than all my other options so I booked a date for an installation in 3 weeks time and over the next couple of weeks I sent them a photo, decided whether I wanted it to open to the left or right and took a couple of measurements of the internal depth and the outer edge.

On the day of the installation I received a call from the engineer letting me know he was nearby. He was very nice and very professional. He took me through the whole process and explained everything clearly: he would measure the bath carefully and then cut a section out of the bath using tools which would be a bit loud but would close the door and have a vacuum attached to it the cutting tool so it wouldn’t put any dust in the air. He would fit the UDOOR bathtub door and use a special adhesive which would take 24 hours to dry and put in some anti-slip coating that I had asked for and then make sure that the bathroom was clean and tidy afterwards, then he set to work.

I was a little worried about only having only one toilet in the house but he made time for me to use the bathroom if I needed to and made sure it was safe for me to enter. After he finished he left the bathroom in a very clean condition, I had no clearing up to do at all. He let me know the time I would be able to use the bath the next day. I was so excited to use my bath. It was so professionally put in and looks great. The lock is really simple to use, even with my arthritis.

I finally have easy access to the bath and shower and this wonderful invention has improved my life so much. I used to be quite scared of just entering the bath. I am very impressed with UDOOR and have already recommend them to all the ladies in my Tai Chi group. It was the best decision for me and I feel so much safer getting into my bath.

Thanks to the UDOOR bathtub door, you do not have to give up the pleasures of a relaxing bathe, as the waterproof door provides a secure solution. Since the tub door can be installed easily in most bathtubs, no expensive bathroom conversion is needed.
It can be installed quickly, so you can enjoy the comfort of your new, safe walk-in bathtub, typically right from the very next day. With appropriate decisions you can prepare for the future and prevent accidents, so bathing can be safe for every member of the family.

In our new build apartment we were stuck with a bathtub as it was already fitted to allow a change to accommodate the need for my 97 yr old mother. Alternatives required removing bathtub and replace it with a shower tray or a walk in bathtub. Both expensive options and risking voiding builder's warranty. Then I came upon the U-Door option and I must say it has worked out very well at a relatively less outrageous price. They have been proficient in follow up, their engineer seems very professional and finished the job without any fuss.

Louis came last week and fitted our bathtub door He worked very effectively and left no mess. He was very friendly and polite and ran through the necessary forms explaining everything very clearly. He also demonstrated the workings of the door before input. I have to say it looks amazing and is brilliant in its effectiveness. I'm really pleased with it and it already makes my life so much easier. The company itself appears to be very professional and kept me updated on when they would attend and even rang me to see if I would like an earlier installation date following a cancellation as they were aware of my surgery date. Very impressed overall and would highly recommend. Many thanks

A brilliant solution to mobility problems with bathing! Having a Udoor in my bath has given me easy access but kept all the usual shower/bath options for other users. The family firm was easy to contact, pleasant, friendly and efficient and Joseph who did the installation was courteous, kind and very professional. Much more affordable than replacing the bath with a shower, too. I would recommend this solution to mobility issues to anyone- it’s brilliant!

This was a remarkable experience. Firstly, Fay was able to arrange the UDOOR installation on an exact date and kept me up to date on procedure. Secondly, Louis arrived on a chosen time and began work immediately and swiftly. I admired his application and the meticulous attention he gave to every aspect of the door installation and the care he gave to “ no mess, no fuss “ method of working. He is a very diligent and talented engineer. Thirdly, Iam extremely satisfied with the door and thank you on behalf of my wife, to whom the UDOOR will be a boon. Ken Duckworth. Rugby.

No Fear Bath Time My wife Susan had polio when she was a child and has a couple of tumbles getting in and out of the bath. Our experience of dealing with UDoor was first class. Fay was the point of contact and was great to deal with. Louis came to assess the bath and then came a couple of weeks later to fit the UDoor. We've been using the bath a few weeks now and Susan can face taking a bath without the fear of falling. Thanks UDoor.

The door is really high quality and the man who came and fitted it was really lovely. From start to finish they have been so friendly and professional. I still can't believe that it only took a few hours to do and now I won't ever get trapped in my bath again.

My Mother is delighted with her U-door installation. It has transformed her bathing experience and increased her independence, at a fraction of the cost of a new bathroom. The technician was polite, helpful and entirely professional, leaving absolutely no mess or cleaning up to do afterwards. Thank you U-door!
