When Kassie Ritchey talks about ReBath of Knoxville she’s full of pride about the company and her family’s involvement there. “We are family-owned and operated and try to treat everyone as family,” she explained.

Kassie and her husband Steve are assisted in the company by Steve’s sister, brother-in-law and nephew. The couple told The Focus that they are glad they found ReBath as a franchise to invest in as they have been very pleased with the results. After five years the family business now serves a very broad area ranging from Crossville  to the North Carolina border and from the Kentucky line to the Sweetwater area.

Rebath of Knoxville’s number one selling service is  converting the tub to an easily accessible shower. “People want to stay in their homes for as long as possible,” Kassie said, adding, “More importantly, as safe as possible. Grab bars, seats, and doors are just a few of the ways you can customize your showers.”

She says the next most popular request is making the shower in the master bathroom a larger one.

Rebath of Knoxville offers a wide variety of products and services to choose from. They can come do a simple tub to tub conversion or even completely remodel the entire bathroom, such as installing vanities, countertops, toilets and flooring. They have very experienced employees that care about you and your home.

“Our number one focus is customers and customer service,” said Kassie

The parent company has been in business for many years and offers a Durabath SSP product that gives the homeowner a lifetime warranty against cracking and breaking, all while being able to clean it with a soft cloth and no harsh chemicals. “The moment my husband saw the quality of the product he was convinced others would want it too!” she told The Focus, adding that this is important to Steve as he is also a builder.

The colors and patterns available make customizing a bathroom to your taste a breeze. They now even feature the New Natural Stone product for the beauty of an upscale bathroom and it also comes with a 10-year warranty. Rebath Walk-in Tubs are the only tubs available with a patented aluminum door, which is very important, yet very competitive in price.

She explains that their process is very simple, “Just call us at 865-240-4351 and we set up a free, in home estimate.  At that time one of our Design Consultants come to your house with samples and can design and explain all of the different products and options we have at the convenience of your own kitchen table. We bring the samples to you.”

Once your order is placed it only takes a few weeks, and then, depending on your project, maybe just a few days until completion.

Rebath offers financing options, making the remodel an affordable option.

“We get excited about our phone calls and the opportunity to come give you a great option for your bathroom remodel. When you are a small, locally-owned and operated business, every customer matters! We had our first call from the Knoxville Focus ad today!” Rebath of Knoxville can be found online at or on their Facebook page.
