Bathtub Refinishing: A Better Option to Go With

removing old bathtub


Bathtub refinishing is a great green remodeling alternative. This option has, in fact, benefited many homeowners, hotels, and motels by saving hundreds of thousands of dollars over replacement. You may have to pay as little as $300 for a new bathtub, however, that’s not all you may have to pay. There’s a lot more to add. For example, the cost of tearing down your old bathtub, and removing it, and getting all the fixtures done could actually burn a hole in your pocket.

Believe me, your simple bathroom remodeling job may turn into a really expensive job, and you may not be able to do anything to cut costs. After all, the cost is likely to go up and up with added bathtub parts, tile work, flooring, and carpentry. So, why replace your bathtub when you can actually repair it?
