Bathtub refinishing VS Bathtub replacement:

Of cause brand new bathtub always better than refinished old one, but how much does it cost to replace a bathtub ?….

To replace a bathtub, you have to:

  • Remove the old one. To do so, you have to break walls around your tub. After you get this step done you are going to have plenty of construction garbage to deal with and totally ruined bathroom.
  • Then you need to buy a new bathtub.
  • Then you have to install bathtub and connect it to the existing old drain system. This is a quite difficult procedure and in most cases you would need to call professional plumber.
  • After that, waterproof cement board or drywall must be installed around you new tub and ceramic tile is set. For this job you definitely need a professional help.
  • That’s also not taking into account the noise, dirt and other nuisances that go “hand-in-hand” with remodeling projects, and probably numerous permits from your local government.
