No room gets more use than the bathroom. So when these high-traffic areas start to show signs of wear, or if they look disturbingly out of date, we have a strong desire to do something about it. Having a bathtub liner installed is a great way to create a shiny, durable, attractive new bathtub right on top of a dull, worn-out tub. Klein Basement Systems can assist you with such a service.
A tub liner is a seamless sheet of high-quality acrylic plastic that is custom-formed to fit snugly over an existing tub. When this type of retrofit is done, it's usually combined with a new bathtub surround also made from acrylic sheet material. Both the tub liner and the tub surround are available in white and a limited selection of other colors, enabling you to change your bath color scheme while making these improvements.
Both of these options are popular among homeowners interested in budget-minded bathroom remodels because they are less costly and less disruptive than total tub replacement. In most cases, an old bathtub can be refinished or topped with a tub liner in a day. There's no need to demolish walls or do other major tear-out work. Instead of being out of commission for several days, the bathroom can be used the following day.
Installing a bathtub liner is a smart choice when you're dealing with a steel or cast-iron tub that's standard in size and style. A high-quality liner can easily be custom fit to these tubs, and will provide an extremely durable, long-lasting finished surface with excellent resistance to impact, chemicals and staining. Many hotels have tub liners installed as an alternative to complete tub replacement, because they like the appearance, durability and economy that tub liners provide.
Refinishing is a smart choice with fiberglass and acrylic tubs and with odd-sized tubs that can't easily be fit with tub liners. With tub refinishing, you also get a shiny, super-durable, like-new appearance –usually for slightly lower cost than a tub liner.
It's smart to have a new bathtub surround installed to match or compliment a new tub liner. Like a tub liner, a tub surround is made from thick, strong seamless acrylic. Your new surround won't ever crack, leak or attract mold like a tiled tub surround. In addition to giving your bathroom a shiny new look, this treatment will make your tub area virtually maintenance free.
