Bath Tub Replacement vs Refinishing

Replacing your old tub with a new bathtub is just that... you get to enjoy a brand new bathtub.

Tub refinishing or reglazing is a cheaper alternative to replacing an old tub that some homeowners consider.

Bath tub refinishing is a multi-step chemical process that applies a thin, rigid epoxy paint to the old tub.

Refinishing is less expensive then installing a new tub, but the life expectancy of a refinished or reglazed tub is considerably shorter.

Refinishing may make sense to a quick-fix owner with a low budget & a 1-2 year time horizon.

Replacing with a new tub makes more sense for the quality-minded owner, and the person looking for a long term solution.

 

Old Tub Footprint

This pic demonstrates a splash guard installed as well as a cultured marble floor strip at the front of the tub to disguise the gap between the front edge of the tub and the edge of the flooring after the new tub installation.

We find that many of the old tubs we tear out have a footprint shape that is a lot different than the new tubs we install so there is a gap on the floor between the front edge of the new tub and the edge of the flooring where it once butted up to the front edge of the old tub.

Our solution to this dilemma was to have a strip of solid surface material manufactured and installed over top the gap to cover up the scar line.
