Should You Get Bathtub Refinishing or a Bathtub Liner?

Posted on October 13, 2015

Bathtub Refinishing

If you’re looking to upgrade the current look of your bathtub, you may be trying to decide between bathtub refinishing and bathtub liners. Both options have pluses and minuses, so it’s a good idea to have as much information possible before making your decision. If you live in or around the Chicago area, you may want to consider bathtub liners in Lyons.

Bathtub Refinishing

Bathtub refinishing, also called “reglazing,” consists of putting a new coating on your existing bathtub. When done by a professional, the worker first sands off the old coating, so that the new coating won’t look bumpy. He or she then sprays on the new coating just like paint. Refinishing can rejuvenate the look of your bathtub if it has become stained or worn down. You won’t want to use this method, however, if there is any structural damage to your bathtub. Refinishing can be done in several different colors, so you can choose just the right complement for your bathroom. On the negative side, the process can take up to three days to complete, and you’ll want to avoid using any abrasive materials when cleaning the tub.

Bathtub Liners

Those looking to improve the look of their tub may conversely want to choose bathtub liners in Lyons. Liners are acrylic inserts that are molded to perfectly fit over your existing tub. Liners can’t be used for already acrylic tubs; instead, they can only be used for iron or steel tubs. Those who choose a bathtub liner can also purchase an accompanying wall system that extends up the wall over the tub. You can choose from different styles in order to find the one that best suits your bathroom. After the molding has been made, bathtub liners only take one day to install, and you can use abrasive materials on them without damaging the surface. The liners must be installed very professionally, however, in order to prevent any gaps between the bathtub and the liner, which can result in mold or mildew.

Choosing between bathtub refinishing and a bathtub liner can be tricky if you don’t know what each process entails. Those looking for bathtub liners in Lyons are sure to find the perfect installer.
