Bathing Bliss: Navigating the Intersection of Style, and Functionality in Bathtub Selection

The right tub balances beauty and functionality to create a relaxing bathing space. Many styles are available for every budget. Plumbers and bathroom remodeling contractors install bathtubs and make plumbing modifications. Whirlpool tubs require an electrician to wire the motor into your home’s electrical system. Remodeling costs vary by size and scope. Learn how to best prepare your budget for the project you envision.


PureCoat is a tub liner that provides a sleek, modern look for your bathroom. It is made from high-quality materials and is easy to clean. It is also highly durable and comes with a warranty.

The PureCoat process claims to be superior to traditional refinishing or relining options because it is eco-friendly, fast and completely odorless. This is achieved by a pour-on application, which avoids the spraying process that causes harmful fumes. The coating is 5x thicker than a standard spray application, which provides a long-lasting finish that resists chipping and scratching.

This option is a great choice for homeowners who want to upgrade their bathroom but don’t have the budget for a full tub replacement. However, it is important to note that a refinished or relined tub will require more labor than a brand-new bathtub because the old tub will need to be cleaned, sanded and prepped for the new finish. Additionally, the flooring and wall needs to be addressed, which can add to the cost of this project.


Bathtub refinishing gives you the beautiful bathtub you want without tearing up your existing bathroom. This process is less expensive than replacing your tub and can be completed in one day.

We use our tough, acrylic refinishing coatings to transform your old and outdated bathtub, tile or sink. A refinished surface can last a lifetime with the same care instructions as most new surfaces.

Reglazing is the final step in the bathtub restoration process. Once the surface has been repaired, resurfaced and filled, it’s ready for a commercial coating to be applied.

Reglazing is an excellent option for hotels and apartment complexes to save money on a complete renovation while still keeping the bathrooms looking brand new. The refinishing process can also be combined with other bathroom renovation services, such as installing grab bars or shower heads. This is a cost efficient alternative to tub replacement, which can cost more than 75% more. Reglazing also takes a fraction of the time, making it an ideal choice for quick project timelines.


Tub relining is a less expensive alternative to complete tub replacement. A polyester felt tube coated with PVC resin is inserted into the existing pipe and saturated, expanding it to fill the space. Once the liner is in place, it’s hardened for a permanent, durable solution.

Before refinishing, your tub or shower is thoroughly cleaned and any cracks, chips or holes are repaired. Once the surface is ready to accept acrylic polyurethane, several coats are uniformly applied and allowed to dry between each application.

A new bathtub can bring many benefits to a home. However, it’s important to consider the cost of additional renovations that will be needed, such as flooring replacement or adjusting existing plumbing fixtures. If you’re not sure whether a new tub is right for your home, it’s best to consult with experts.
