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.
