The Pros and Cons of Refinishing A Bathtub

You know that ugly old bathroom in the back of the house, the one you very rarely go into? Maybe this is the year you do something about it.

You’ve hit the home improvement stores and know you can get a new bathtub for just a few hundred dollars. But that’s not where the real costs lie. Try remodeling a bathroom; hire someone to pull out the old bathtub, redo the walls, install a new one. Before you know it your few hundred has turned into a few thousand. All for a bathroom you really don’t use all that much?

There is a better way. Instead of removing and installing a new one, why not refinish your bathtub instead?

The Pros and Cons of Refinishing A Bathtub

Refinishing a bathtub will save you time. Most bathtubs are installed in a home at the time of construction. Which means they were installed before the drywall was in place, before the tiles were laid, and before the paint dried. Then all of the finishing work was completed after the tub was in place. If a contractor pulls out your existing tub to replace it, a lot of work may turn up in the process. You may need additional trim work. You may need to repaint. You may need new tiling or floors if things don’t align. You may need a custom bathtub if the dimensions don’t work with today’s materials. And as more projects continue to make their way to the to-do list, the more time you’ll need to get your home back to a normal pace.

Refinishing a bathtub will save you money. While the hours continue to add up if you decide to go with a remodel, so to will the amount of money you will spend. Every move a contractor makes, every piece he rips out, every error he finds will cost you more money. What you wanted to be a simple update can quickly turn into a major undertaking. One you might not be prepared for when you decided to make a simple change to a room used on an occasional basis.

Refinishing a bathtub will save you delay. Refinishing doesn’t take weeks or even months while you coordinate with a contractor, choose materials, get permits, have the work completed, etc. Refinishing a bathtub can normally be accomplished in less than a week. A professional can have the old tub stripped, repaired, painted, and allow for drying time in a matter of days. Meaning you can have your house back to normal in less than seven days.

Refinishing isn’t just for bathtubs, the process can be applied to just about anything. Sinks, wall tiles, countertops, shower stalls, even kitchen counters – anything made from fiberglass, acrylic, Formica, tile or marble can be changed with this process.

The Benefits Of Bathtub Refinishing

If you have ever considered selling your home, you know there are a few crucial areas that can make or break the deal with any potential buyer.  The kitchen and the master bedroom are crucial, but just after these rooms, the buyer considers the bathrooms.

If you have an old, dingy, difficult to clean tub; you may be considering replacement.  Before you go out and buy a new tub, you might want to consider the benefits of bathtub refinishing rather than replacement.The Benefits Of Bathtub Refinishing

1. Refinishing your tub is much less complicated than replacing.  Replacing a tub can lead to a total bathroom makeover if you are not careful.  If the new tub has different dimensions then the last tub, you will have to do some patch up work to make up for the difference.   Before you know it, a “simple” task has elevated in complication and cost.  Refinishing a tub produces drastically fewer variables to consider and/or deal with.

2. Refinishing costs much less than replacing.  Unless you have construction experience, you will likely need a contractor to help you tear out the old and put in the new.  In addition to the cost of labor, there is also the cost of disposal.  City pickups are highly unlikely to pick up your old tub, so you will need to take it to the local landfill yourself.  Another cost you might face is permit payments.  Many counties require permits for most bathroom remodeling projects, including replacing your tub.  Refinishing costs are limited to supplies and labor.

3. Refinishing costs have a much shorter timetable than replacing.  Since there are so many details to consider in replacing your tub, you may find yourself unable to use it for up to 10 days.  Refinishing will typically need 24 hours for work and curing before your tub is ready to use again.
