Bathtub Refinishing is a fast, eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative to completely replacing your old bathtub.
When you choose to have your bathtub refinished, you can expect your tub to look like-new in as little as one full day.
Unlike replacement projects, a resurfacing of your existing bathtub does not require any heavy construction, plumbing demolition, or tile and carpentry replacement.
In fact, bathtub refinishing is becoming the more popular solution for homeowners, realtors and property managers. That’s because many tubs require repairs that can be done within the day. Such repairs range from cosmetic damages like chips and cracks, to more heavy wear and tear due to the use and age of the tub over time.
The bathtub refinishing process can be completed with minimal interruption, since most jobs can be completed within 24 hours depending on scheduling and availability. Bathtub replacement work, on the other hand, would require 7-10 days to complete, meaning you as a homeowner would not be able to access the bathroom during that period.
A brand new replacement tub can cost between $350 to $600 alone, with luxury and spa tubs costing even more.
A refinished tub is like-new, with a glossy final coat and custom color options also available. Homeowners and property managers who choose refinishing can benefit most of all from the much more affordable cost. Bathtub refinishing costs between $300 to $649 depending on how damaged the tub is in its current state. In comparison, the total cost of replacing a bathtub will average at $2,250 after construction and removal costs are factored in.
When it comes to saving time and money, bathtub resurfacing is the more effective solution compared with replacement.
