Should I Refinish or Replace My Bathtub?
It’s a common question that many homeowners face: Should I opt for bathtub replacement or refinishing? If you’re wondering what to do with your outdated, faded, or damaged tub, you may be conflicted by the same question.
Of course, no internet article can make this decision for you. It’s best to weigh the pros and cons of tub replacement and refinishing and make a decision based on your budget and the condition of your bathtub. To help you make a decision, here’s some information on each route:
Bathtub refinishing involves sanding down the surface of the tub, filling in any cracks, and applying several coats of primer to remove stains, scratches, and other imperfections. It is a temporary and budget-friendly solution that will give your bathtub a cosmetic facelift, but it will eventually need to be replaced in the future. If your tub is structurally damaged, refinishing is not the answer.
Bathtub replacement is a longer-term solution that provides more bang for your buck. Most experts recommend replacement for homeowners who are performing a complete bathroom remodel or who want a different size or shape of tub. Plus, a tub replacement gives you the opportunity to update your tubs features and styling.
