Question? Should I reglaze my fiberglass bathtub or should I replace it?


Question? Should I reglaze my fiberglass bathtub or should I replace it?
Replacing an existing bathtub with a new bathtub is not as easy as it sounds. The original tub almost always needs to be cut into pieces causing for extensive, and expensive labor. flooring, trim, surrounds, and plumbing will also need to be replaced. While a new tub can cost as little as $200, labor expenses for the replacement process can easily add $2,500.00 or more to the bill.                                                               
Instead, many homeowners have the existing tub reglazed, which typically costs $300-$1,000, depending on area and process. Whether your bathtub is dingy and stained, or even if it sports some serious rust and cracks, a trained professional can likely fix and re-coat the surface for a like-new look. Cast-iron, steel, and fiberglass tubs and shower stalls can all be re-coated to match the original finish or in an entirely new color.
The refinishing process involves three steps.
  • First, the technician strips off the old finish and sands the tub to create a smooth surface.
  • Next, any holes, cracks, chips, or rust spots are repaired.
  • Finally, a primer, multiple layers of coating, and a sealant are applied. The bathtub can be used again within 24 hours, and the finish should last a min 15-20 years.
There are do-it-yourself reglazing kits available for less than $50, but this work is best left to a trained contractor like BathArt Refinishing - www.bathartrefinishing.com (800) 206-5958. These products don't use the same technology as the professionals, and the results are less durable and often look painted on rather than smooth.
