What is Bathtub Refinishing?
Bathtub refinishing, like it sounds, is the process of restoring a damaged or outdated bathtub’s surface to a better-looking and more efficient surface. There are many interchangeable terms for bathtub refinishing such as bathtub reglazing, bathtub resurfacing, or bathtub re-enameling. Before you decide whether to replace your tub, consider the benefits of a simple refinishing.
Keep Costs at a Minimum
One of the main benefits of refinishing your tub’s surface is the amount of money you will save as opposed to if you were to purchase a brand-new bathtub. As you probably know, a new tub isn’t cheap and, depending on your taste and style, can range anywhere from $750 to around $10,000. This process can add 15 to 20 years to the lifespan of your products.
Another important factor to consider is the amount of time it takes to remove an old tub and the delivery time of a new one as opposed to the time it takes to refinish the bathtub you already have. A bathtub resurfacing project is typically finished within a few hours. Replacing a tub, however, can take days or even weeks.
The Options Are (Almost) Endless
When it comes to refinishing your bathtub, another perk is being able to change the look of your tub with different color options. Your current bathtub’s color or texture can be changed. For instance, switch out your old-fashioned dark tub to a more modern, bright finish, or switch to a color and texture that compliments the color scheme of your home. Resurfacing can help provide an updated look and feel to your bathroom without the price tag.
When to Refinish instead of Replace
