Bathtub Crack Repairs – Why You Shouldn’t Wait

Bathtub Crack Repairs – Why You Shouldn’t Wait

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!

Our Services:

Furniture Repair:

Your apartment lobby sees a lot of foot traffic, and even if your business is new, accidents happen. Whether it’s a tear in your lobby accent chairs, a hole in your patio and pool furniture, a rip in your fitness center equipment, or you’re simply just wanting a new look, we have the tools and expertise to bring just about anything back to life!


Bathroom Repair:

Years of use and accidental mishaps can lead to cracks and holes in your bathtub/showers over time. Areas around drain and faucet surfaces can begin to erode, rust and damage, causing even bigger issues if not taken care of.

Kitchen Repair:

The kitchen is typically the area in a home where people spend most of their time. From eating and drinking to conversing with guests, this seems to be the heart of a home. The same is true for apartments, especially ones with less square feet. Wear and tear in kitchens is expected, but that doesn’t mean your tenants need to live with it. Dents in fridges, and dishwashers, laminate countertop burns<, and cracked countertops are all necessary fixes that will elevate the look and feel of any kitchen.  

Tile Floor Repair:

Let’s talk about tile. Tile floors are everywhere. With movers carrying furniture in and out of apartments on what seems like a daily basis, scratches and holes are common. Although common, they are nothing to worry about and, with the right tools, can be an easy fix!

Door and Window Repair:

Doors and windows provide your renters with security and protection from outside elements and should be near the top of the repair list. Although weather conditions are out of our control, the effects of hail, cold temperatures, and harsh winds can create issues for elements such as doors and vinyl windows. Unit door frames, sliding glass doors, and windowsills also take a hit from tenants and from simply aging over time. Surface Repair Service is here for you! We offer services to meet all your door and window repair needs.
