Why That Bathtub Is Imperfect
If your bathtub has been in your bathroom for a while, it’s probably fallen out of fashion. These days, a bathtub that is any color other than white is seen as terribly old fashioned. Maybe you have a rather fetching salmon pink or green tub, that’s clashing with the rest of the bathroom. It’s not ideal, and it’s ruining the look of the room. That’s not what you want when you’re trying to relax in your bathtub.
If it’s not the color, then maybe the finish is just getting older and more tired. Depending on the finish your bathtub already had, it could be that it’s starting to get discolored, or generally just look past its prime. You don’t want to take the whole tub out as you like it, you just want to spruce it up again. That’s where reglazing comes in. You’ll get a better finish with a bathtub restoration without having to change the tub entirely.
Save Money on Your Renovations
Renovating any room in your home will cost you money, and you’ve got to be creative in how you save some cash on your work. You can’t cut many corners in a bathroom, as you really do get what you pay for. You want fixtures that will stand the test of time, so cheaper items and labor just aren’t going to cut it.
However, there is a way you can save money on your tub. If you reglaze it, then you’ll avoid having to replace the whole thing, all while making it look as good as new. This will be cheaper than you’d think, so you can get the look you’re going for without having to spend a lot of money.
Quicker Turn Around Times
Replacing a bathtub isn’t a quick job. It’s going to take a few days, depending on what needs to be done. If you’re moving the tub somewhere else, then the resulting plumbing work will add even more time onto the renovator’s estimate. Being without your tub isn’t ideal, especially if your bathroom set up has your shower over your bathtub.
If time is of the essence, then you’ll want to think about reglazing the existing tub instead. This is a job that will still require you to wait, but it will be much quicker. Once the tub has been reglazed, you’ll need to wait about 24 hours for it to set properly. The company who does this for you will let you know how long it’ll take in advance. That’s much shorter than a full replacement, so reglazing is the best option if time is of the essence.
Keep the Tub You Love
Do you really like the tub you’ve already got? Maybe it’s just the right size for you to fit into and soak comfortably. Maybe it’s an older tub that you can’t find a suitable replacement for. The only problem is that it’s looking tired, and it won’t fit in with the renovation work you’re doing in your bathroom.
If that sounds familiar, then you’ll want to reglaze that tub during your bathtub restoration. You won’t need to take it out at all to make it look brand new. Just call in a reglazing company and they’ll do the work to fit that tub in with all your new decor. Other items, such as your sink, can be reglazed too if you need them to match. That way you don’t have to let go of that tub you love, just because it’s showing its age.
Reglazing Lasts for Years to Come
How long will reglazing last on your bathtub restoration? It’s true that it won’t last as long as a brand new bathtub would, but it’s an option that’s much cheaper, easier and quicker than replacing it. On average, a reglazing job will last 10-15 years. f you bring in an expert to apply it, and take good care of it though, it can last much longer than that.
