Renovating your bathroom, or even just your bath for that matter, no longer has to mean total destruction, reconstruction, or ripping things out. No longer does it mean disruption of your living area, or breaking the bank. There are much better ways to achieve the beautiful bathroom makeover of your dreams.
Let’s start with the most used area of the house, the bath tub. This area can become chipped, rusty, stained, or simply lose its luster and gloss. This can bring the whole bathroom down, making it look old, uncared for, and outdated. The cost of a new bathtub can be relatively affordable, but there are many external costs to consider. You will need to hire contractors to remove your old bathtub, install the new one, possibly retile, and most likely a plumber to get the new piece reconnected. This simple replacement can cost thousands of dollars. There is a better way. Tub refinishing, for example, uses what you already have instead of getting a whole new item. Without installation, removal, plumbing, or retiling costs, this can save you thousands. Overall, bath resurfacing can costs as much as 50% to 75% less than replacement!
Bath resurfacing can give you many options on a budget. You can choose any color for your tub refinishing project, allowing you to create a brand new palette for your update. These methods can also be applied to tile, sinks, and other areas of the bathroom. This process will also make your bathtub easier to much easier to clean, making it a practical decision in addition to a budget-savvy one.
One of the greatest things about bath resurfacing is that there is far less inconvenience and disruption than a full replacement. Instead of 2-3 weeks, tub refinishing can usually be fully completed in no more than 2-3 days. Even better, using what you already have is much more environmentally friendly. Your bathtub’s life is extended by another 10-15 years without ending up in a landfill.
A common misconception of tub refinishing is that your bathtub will need to be removed and taken to a shop for the process to take place. This, however, is not the case.
