Many homeowners ask us about bathtub liners. Other contactors have told them that a bathtub liner is the only way to avoid a complete bathtub replacement.
This just isn’t true!
Unlike bathtub liners, bathtub reglazing breathes new life into your bathtub and completely refurbishes it to like-new condition.
- Returns your bathtub to like-new conditions — glossy finish and all
- Is durable enough for day-to-day use for years. It will last as long as the new tub’s glaze lasted!
- Makes your bathtub easy to clean
- Is cheaper than replacing or lining your tub
The Cons of Bathtub Liners
Bathtub liners are made to fit a range of bathtub models and sizes, and are often several inches wider than the original bathtub. This extra width takes up critical space in small bathrooms or can throw off the carefully-balanced design of a larger bathroom.
Liners wear down more quickly than a reglazed tub. Unfortunately, most liners are glued to the original tub surface during installation and need to be cut or ripped out to be replaced.
Bathtub liners may crack if the liner does not match the size of your tub precisely. Once cracked, water can easily infiltrate underneath the liner, which can cause an odor, a squishy floor, and mildew and mold build up.
Limited Color Selection
Bathtub liners are mass produced and made to work for thousands and thousands of bathtubs. This limits the number of colors that can be offered with bathtub liners.
Bathtub liners may require an extension of the drain and overflow systems to avoid plumbing problems given the added thickness of the liner in the bathtub.
Although cheaper than a total replacement, liners are considerably more expensive than bathtub refinishing. Most bathtub liner companies will insist on installing a 3-wall bathtub liner to help prevent the collection of water under the liner, adding even more to the cost.
