Tub replacement can be needed when your tub is worn out, broken, difficult to wash, or just the wrong color. But tub replacement shouldn’t be done as a last ditch effort. In fact, full bathtub resurfacing is an excellent low-cost replacement solution that will restore your beautiful tub to a new condition almost any color you pick. In addition, you can also make your tub much more attractive with a fresh coat of paint.
Many homeowners mistakenly believe that bathtub replacement means completely replacing the existing tub. This is not the case and in fact in many cases bathtub replacement only involves repairing or refinishing a section of your bathtub. So, if your tub no longer glows it’s definitely time to consider a bathtub resurfacing job. If your tub has stains, cracks, chips or other damage it’s even more important to get it repaired or refinished.
Some of the most common areas for repairs include bathtub rim repair, bathtub liner repair, bathtub drain hole repair, corner bathtub repair, and others. In most cases it’s a better idea to have one person to perform all these jobs to insure quality work and a good job done on a fair budget. It’s a good idea to use a tub replacement professional that has a good reputation in the industry to complete the work properly and on time. Many tub repair shops charge a hefty fee for small tubs. A good contractor won’t do the dirty work for free.
When looking at all of your options for bathtub replacement, you may feel you don’t have the money to replace the entire tub.
