Repair or Replacement for Your Bathroom Remodeling

January 9, 2019

We live in a disposable culture where it’s often much easier to toss out the old and buy a new. However, when it comes to your bathroom, tossing out the old fixtures and features may not be the best option for your home or your budget. It all depends om what your specific problem is and what you’re looking for in a solution. Let’s take a look and repair vs. replacement for your bathroom remodeling project.

Take a Holistic Look at Your Remodeling Project

The first step in any new remodeling project is to examine the space and figure out what you want to do with it. This step is arguably one of the most important in the whole process because it will determine every subsequent step. As you take a look at your project overall, you need to determine which aspects of your new design are most important to you and this can mean a variety of things for your project.

For example, if you determine that the appearance of your new bathroom is the most important aspect of your new bathroom, then repairing an old bathtub may not fit the bill. Similarly, if you’re more invested in your sinks than you are in your bathtub, then repairing your bathtub may be a good fit. It all depends on what you want, what you need, and what you’re willing to spend.

Replacement is a Large Undertaking

Ripping your bathtub out of your bathroom, getting it out of the house, and disposing of it is a big job. Not only is it a great deal of work, but it can also be quite expensive. Not to mention the fact that removing a bathtub can certainly be a lengthy process.

Repairing the Bathtub May Not Fix the Problem

When you go to repair your bathtub, you may only be able to address cosmetic issues. Addressing serious cracks, leaks, or other structural problems will require the efforts of a professional to ensure that the job is done properly.

However, there is a third option that encompasses all of the good things about repairs and replacements. Welcome to the bathtub liner.

Invest in an Acrylic Bathtub Liner

If you’re looking for a way to have a new bathtub without spending an arm and a leg, then you’re looking for a bathtub liner. These handy little devices are installed quickly right on top of your current bathtub. They create a watertight seal that will protect your home for years to come. Not only that, but the cost of a bathtub liner is something you can smile about as you plan out the rest of your bathroom remodeling project.
