Give your bathtub a second life
When your bathtub has seen better days, consider an alternative to replacement: refinishing. Of course the best solution to a tired old tub is replacement, or so you may think. When other factors are added into the process of replacing, your thoughts about replacing may change. Why? Because replacing affects not just the bathtub but, everything else around the tub as well.

If you visit a home improvement store in search of a new bathtub, they are plentiful and many are inexpensive, though the average price of a quality tub is about $1000. You can get a standard enamel metal tub for around $200 with a little research and effort. But then consider you have the added cost of a contractor, demolition and removal of the old tub, landfill fees, a tiling company and a plumber. Your cost will come back to you tenfold.
There is always the idea of a bathtub liner. It’s an interesting idea but it is pricey and all it does is cover up your existing bathtub and its existing problems along with it. This option is cheaper than full replacement and tub liners completely cover the old surface of your bathtub and usually tile surround. However, if you have a unique bathtub, it will get covered over with a standard tub. No saving that old contoured tub. Tub liners also reduce the inner size of your bathtub.
So what is left? Refinishing of course! Refinishing, resurfacing, reglazing, all words used in the industry that is simply stripping your old bathtub of it’s outer, old, worn surface, repairing any cracks, chips or dents and applying a coating that will last on your tub for years. Whatever your terminology, your tub stays in place and that is the best part!
With home remodeling, when you change one thing like replacing your bathtub, something else related is affected.

With bathtub refinishing all the work is done on-site. Everything is masked off and the tub is resurfaced to a new, restored shine that you will love.
