Reglazing or refinishing your bathtub is a quick, affordable option for ensuring its long-lasting beauty. It involves sanding down the tub’s surface, repairing cracks and applying several coats of primer and paint before a final buffing. It is, however, a temporary fix, which means you’ll have to replace the entire fixture after many years of usage.
The following are some of the top reasons to consider bathtub replacement over just refinishing or reglazing:
1. Obvious Damage
Repairing cracks, chips or holes may be enough to restore the surface of the bathtub. However, there’s always the possibility that more damage will occur in the future. Rather than fix the problem anew, it would be a wise decision to invest in a new and beautiful tub replacement.
Renovating your bathroom helps boost your home’s overall value and increase the aesthetics and functionality of the whole space. Whether it is a bathroom makeover or a full remodel, this project allows you to make changes to its important features, including the bathtub. Turn to your reliable bath remodeler in your area to guide you to the best bathtub styles and designs.
3. Wear and Tear
After a single refinishing or reglazing job, the bathtub will eventually look old and worn down from regular use. Unsightly mildew and other stains can be hard to remove, making it look and feel less appealing. By replacing your old bathtub with a new one, you help improve your bath experience more.
4. Shower Conversion
Sometimes, tub replacement doesn’t mean getting rid of the old in favor of a new one. If you no longer use it because it has lost its charm and utility, it doesn’t make sense to just let it take up valuable space in your bathroom. Converting it into a sleek, space-saving shower is always a smart idea.
