  1. Thank you for the tremendous read. I particularly enjoyed what you said about how refinishing can be done quickly, and requires no re-plumbing. My mother has an old bathtub and it’s rather unsightly. I’ll advise she find a refinishing service, as plumbing takes a long time and my mother isn’t looking for a complete renovation.

  2. I like that you talk about how much money you can save by simply refinishing the bathtub. It makes sense that it’s beneficial to hire somebody to refinish the tub rather than replace it, particularly if it’s a unique size due to the rarity of unique tubs. My home has a very vintage style and the tub is one of my favorite things so having it refinished could maintain the style and size while still allowing the bathroom to look cleaner.
