Restoring an aging bathtub
What do you do when your 250-pound bathtub is in need of a replacement? It is becoming increasingly common for homeowners to keep what they already have and restore old fixtures already in place. There are cost-effective ways to refinish and rejuvenate aging fixtures. One of the most common and most popular solutions is to hire a professional refinishing company. Atlanta bathtub and tile restoration has never been easier to do. And the savings can be substantial to replacing.
When space is an issue
Squeezing your bathtub out of a small space, even a tiny apartment just doesn’t seem feasible. It is far easier to keep existing fixtures and have them revitalized.
In addition to logistical difficulties involved in hauling an old tub out of a house or apartment, replacing can also result in unexpected expenses. Floor or wall tiles get disturbed or broken or the old plumbing system must be replaced and brought up to code.
Replacing a bathtub costs more than just buying a new tub and putting it into the existing space. You have the added expense of hiring a plumber, a tile installation company and most likely, a painter.
In addition to replacement costs, it can take days, maybe even weeks to replace your aging bathtub. With refinishing you are ready to use your brand new tub in just twenty-four hours.
Keeping the integrity of your home
By keeping the fixtures that came with your home when it was built, especially with very old homes, you are keeping the history and integrity of your historic Atlanta home in tact.
It doesn’t stop at bathtubs
You can resurface a multitude of fixtures in your house instead of replacing. Tile, countertops and cabinets in both your bathrooms and your kitchen can all be refinished to bring back their original beauty.
More creativity than you think
You are only limited by your imagination when it comes to refinishing. You can change your bathtub to any color you choose, although most people prefer to get rid of that avocado green and swap it for glistening white. Countertops can be refinished with different textures and colors, giving it the look of granite or quartz.
With endless possibilities of refinishing, why would you want to replace? Aging bathtubs and other fixtures in your home can be made new again with an easy process in as little as two hours. Atlanta tub and tile restoration is easier than you think and will take away the headache that comes with replacing. With the idea of restoring instead of replacing becoming increasingly popular, fixtures are a part of that process. We all strive to be green and economical; we can start right in our own home.
