Have you ever wondered how to give that lifeless, dull, and just downright ugly bathtub, life again without totally renovating your entire bathroom?Have you tried cleaning it with every known cleaner available and just can’t get that new glossy finish back up to where it used to be? Did you know about lead poisoning in children and the possible harmful effects of them bathing in worn out tubs. Is there mold around the tub area?

Now hold on a minute!! Before you get all worried into thinking that the only way to get rid of the problem is to get rid of the tub, wouldn’t it be nice to know that you have other options? Although I admit, that it is one way to do it.

Before going out and buying a new bathtub, you have to understand that you will be getting into a full scale bathroom renovation that could take weeks to complete and cost thousands of dollars, not to mention the mess, and inconvenience of not being able to use your bathroom. If you are tearing your bathroom apart anyway the installation of a new tub is still the best way to go.


Bathtub refinishing also benefits the environment by not having to transport the waste materials of a renovation to the landfill including the old bathtub.

Lastly, remember, the cheapest price does not necessarily translate into a quality job. It is very important to hire the right refinisher. Ask a lot questions. The average cost to you in having a bathtub refinished should be between $400.00 and $500.00. This is a base price and does not include stripping a tub if it has been refinished before. At this price level, it gives the contractor the ability to make a reasonable income and in turn take their time to give you the high quality finish on your bathtub that you deserve. It is imperative that you do your due diligence when going through the hiring process.
