1. To Save Money!
If you want a new look for your bathroom, but don’t want to spend thousands of dollars remodeling, then refinishing is your best value. Replacing the bathtub alone can cost as much as $3,000.
With refinishing, you only pay a small fraction (as little as 10 percent) of the cost of replacement. And anyone who has ever replaced the tiles or sink in their bathroom knows the mess and hassle of demolition, as well as the hole it can put in their wallet.
2. To Save Time
Refinishing a bathtub can take as little as four hours. You can shower or bathe the very next day. Replacing a tub, however, can take weeks, when you factor in the time to rip out your old tub, install a new one, let caulking dry, and readjust or replace plumbing. With many homes having only one bathtub, weeks of delay are not affordable, practical or convenient.
3. Bathtub Durability
Refinished tubs or ceramic tiles can easily last 15 to 20 years or more with proper maintenance. A new porcelain bathtub may last a few years longer, but the cost of replacement is nearly triple what it would cost to refinish. Not only is refinishing more cost-effective, but refinishers are also able to provide extras, such as slip-resistant surfaces and custom colors.
Bathtub Refinishing is also great for repairing small chips and cracks, making it ideal for fixtures that are otherwise in good condition. Professional restoration companies like Miracle Method guarantee their work, so be sure to ask about warranties when shopping for a refinish to your bathtub.
4. Bathtub Aesthetics
Because bathtub refinishing can match nearly any color, you can change that avocado green tub to a color you really like — even white.
Since most of us have purchased previously owned homes that were decorated according to someone else’s preferences, it’s probably not exactly the way you’d like it to be. Now you can change that 1970s color scheme in just a few hours. And at a savings of up to 90 percent of the cost of replacement, it’s a hard value to beat. Not only will your bathtub look great, but it will also feel silky smooth!
My tub really needs some work. Shouldn’t I just throw it out and get a new one?
Why pay all the money on a new tub, when we can save you money and make your old tub look new again? Consider the cost of ripping out an old tub (and the potential cost of replacing tiles) and compare it to the cost of a refinished tub.
