Why Do Bathtubs Crack?
When purchasing a home, apartment, or hotel building, rarely (if ever) do you think about possible bathtub cracks, chips, and holes. Although it is not often top of mind, bathtub cracks happen for several reasons and bathtub crack repairs should happen as soon as you notice any damage.
The main cause of bathtub damage is a mixture of how long ago a tub was installed and the amount of weight a tub is supporting. Another reason your tub can crack is if large items are repeatedly dropped onto your tub. Knocking over heavy shampoo bottles, a child playing a little too rough with toys in the bathtub, or even your dog continuously scratching up the bottom of your tub during bath time can lead to bathtub damage and cracks. Lastly, a lack of support underneath your bathtub can be the culprit to a cracking tub.
Do Minor Cracks Need Repaired?
If you see a minor crack in your shower or tub it is important to get it fixed as soon as possible. It may seem as though it is not a big deal, but if it goes unfixed for too long, cracks cause water to seep below the tub and into the floor. The water will start to make an appearance in the room below if the cracked tub is in an apartment or hotel room. Whether your bathtub or shower floor is made of fiberglass, acrylic or porcelain, a crack should be repaired as soon as you notice it and should not be ignored!
