Welcome back to our blog! When homeowners in Virginia Beach begin planning out a bathroom upgrade or remodel, they are trying to make the most out of their budget with each and every task. For some, when it comes to upgrading a bathtub that is covered in grime, hard water stains, and could use an overall revamping to improve the aesthetics, the tub owners often think their only option is to replace their bathtub. While there are instances when a bathtub replacement may be the best choice, there are many reasons why a bathtub resurfacing is also an excellent option. Today, we’ll compare bathtub resurfacing and bathtub replacement which may help those looking to rejuvenate their bathtub make the best choice that fits their needs, style, and budget.

Hidden Costs of Bathtub Replacement

Anyone can pick up a new bathtub at Lowe’s or Home Depot for as low as three or four hundred dollars, which makes replacing a bathtub seem affordable, right? The truth is, the costs of replacing a bathtub don’t end once you’ve purchased one; you’ll also have to consider the cost of demolition, removal, and disposal of your original tub. For those brave souls who have joined the DIY revolution and test their skills on replacing a bathtub, the likelihood of causing damage to the wall surfaces, plumbing, and other parts of the bathroom increases.   

Bathtub Resurfacing is Less Complicated

The process of tub resurfacing is not nearly as complicated as that of replacing a bathtub. Sometimes and especially when homeowners attempt to replace a bathtub on their own, replacing a bathtub can lead to other bathroom upgrades, or even a total bathroom makeover. If the new bathtub dimensions don’t fit with the allotted space, this may mean knocking down walls or making adjustments so that it fits, which can lead to a whole mess of unexpected costs. Hiring professionals to resurface a bathtub means you’ll be getting quality work at the hands of experienced technicians who can make your existing bathtub look and feel like new.
