Frequently Asked Questions

These are the questions we get asked the most.  If you don't find the answer you are looking for, be sure to Contact Us.


Do I need to order the grab bars for you to install?

Not at all.  With Same Day Grab Bars®, you won't have to run back and forth to the store or order products online.   Instead, we have the most popular Moen® grab bars on our trucks and use the bars to custom-fit every shower and bath onsite, give you a guaranteed upfront quote with no hidden charges or surprises, and install the grab bars all in one visit.

Do you use independent or subcontractors to install my grab bars?

No, and we recommend that you don't use a company that does. (Be sure to ask.) Why? As a general rule, companies are not responsible if the installation by an independent contractor or subcontractor is faulty or if there are other problems, and they can't require training or background checks of them.

With Same Day Grab Bars®, our installers are owners or employees that must pass rigorous training and a full background check.  They are professional grab bar installation specialists on time, clean, licensed and insured, and in Same Day Grab Bars® uniforms and vehicles for your safety.  You'll get exceptional service you can trust with impeccable installation and clean-up.

Do you do everything on the same day?

Yes.  We bring everything to you, do a thorough safety evaluation closely following the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) recommendations to help keep you safe, and provide custom-fit, lifetime guaranteed professional grab bar installation all in one visit.

Will I receive a quote in advance?

Yes.  On the day of your appointment, we will suggest the safest and most attractive grab bar installation for you and your loved ones and provide a guaranteed upfront quote with no hidden charges or surprises.

What methods of payment do you accept?

We accept all major credit cards, business and personal checks, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and cash.

Am I obligated to have the grab bars installed on the first visit?

You are never under any obligation, we don't have a trip charge, and there is no charge for estimates or ADA safety evaluations.  But for your convenience, we will always be prepared to install grab bars for you during the initial visit.

Can you install grab bars in plastic or fiberglass showers?

Yes.  In addition to guaranteed installations in tile, porcelain, marble, and drywall, we developed an exclusive anchoring system that securely and permanently mounts our lifetime guaranteed Moen® grab bars to any composite, plastic, or fiberglass shower enclosure.

How many grab bars do I need?

We suggest the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) recommendations for our ADA safety evaluations.  For example, the ADA recommends three horizontal grab bars in a walk-in shower or tub/shower without a permanent seat and two with a built-in seat.  When entering the shower or tub is difficult for our client, a small vertical grab bar at the entry and exit provides extra safety.

Do I need to comply with the ADA requirements in a private home?


You are not required to follow the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines in a private home, but we suggest you stick as close to them as possible.  They are an excellent and proven resource for the safest and most attractive installation.  In addition, grab bars are a permanent addition to your home that your safety depends on, making the initial layout and custom design a critical part of any grab bar installation.

Where else should I place grab bars?

Suggested locations include one or two grab bars next to the toilet, hallways, the garage, at the top of stairs, and lanai entries when extra assistance is needed.  Your Certified Same Day Grab Bars® Installer will do an ADA safety evaluation, offer suggestions, and discuss placement with you based on your needs.

Are Same Day Grab Bars® guaranteed?

Yes.  When sold and installed by us, your Same Day Grab Bars® installation is covered by our Transferable Lifetime Warranty on Moen® Grab Bars that automatically transfers to a new owner if you sell your home.

Are the Moen® Grab Bars you install the same ones I can buy at Home Depot or Lowes?

Major brands, including Moen®, separate their product lines between the big box stores and their professional distributors, with significant differences in quality even though the products may look similar.  The Moen® grab bars we install in your home are professional quality, heavy-duty grab bars only available through licensed distributors such as Same Day Grab Bars® and are not sold through big box or chain stores.

Are Same Day Grab Bars® ADA compliant?

Yes.  Moen® grab bars adhere to the highest safety standards, and our guaranteed installations exceed The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) minimum stress requirement of 250 pounds.  These standards exceed all HUD, FHA, VA, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and other federal, provincial, and local codes.
