There is a variety of ways to improve the appearance of a bathtub. Some prefer to install an acrylic or plastic liner - it’s cheaper than buying a new tub and has a very nice aesthetic appearance. However, these overlays can have serious drawbacks and potential consequences, as confirmed by owner reviews:
Whether you are considering installing a liner for the first time or replacing an existing liner with a new one, we highly recommend against that. We offer a much better and more budget-friendly option: restoring your tub and tile, no matter what condition they’re in.
To restore the surface, we use liquid acrylic, which can recover the smoothness, shine, and whiteness of your bathtub - even after a bad experience with an acrylic liner. This method is suitable both for products being restored for the first time and for those that have been treated with an acrylic insert. This is the best available modern method of restoring the bathtub finish, with record-breaking service time - approximately 20 years.
More on the topic of savings - How much does it cost? While tub cover liners are significantly less expensive than a complete bath replacement, they are significantly pricier than bathtub restoration. Most bathtub liner companies insist on installing a three-wall bathtub liner to prevent water accumulation under the overlay. This further increases the cost of the work. Tub liner installation alone costs between $1,000 and $1,500. Replacing wall panels, soap dishes, shower shampoo shelves, and other fixtures can cost an additional $1,000 - $3,000. Comparatively, restoring the surface of your tub costs $400-$450. This is a one time-payment, after which you will not worry about bathtub surface issues for years to come.
