|Bathtub Removal & Replacement|
|This process requires
the removal of all tile and drywall surrounding the tub. This must
be done in order to pull the
tub free from it's place.
From there, a new tub must be secured into place & plumbing must be re-attached.
Then, the drywall must be replaced along with the tile, grout & caulk.
Based on the national average, the length of time to completion is 10
to 14 days.
Average Cost: $3000.00+
|Acrylic or Fiberglass Tub Liner|
|A tub liner is
a 1/4" thick plastic or fiberglass shell that is secured
into your old tub with 2 way foam tape & caulk. Being that tub liners
are very thin, they have a tendency to crack at the waste drain, allowing
water to get between the old tub and the liner. The trapped, stagnated
water causes mildew and rot to occur. Thus,causing a health hazzard,
unpleasant odors and the liner to be permanently damaged. This type
of damage occurs when a liner is not properly installed, secured and
Eventually, liners become stained and lose their gloss finish, just
like a reglazed tub.
Average Cost To Place A Tub Liner: $800.00 to $1200.00
Average Cost To Remove Damaged Or Worn Tub Liner & Place A New Liner: $1500.00
|Repaint / Refinish / Reglaze Bathub|
|If your tub has already been reglazed once, you will be required to
strip the prior reglazed surface. The fee for a contractor to perform
this task alone is roughly $100.00 to $150.00. These products give off
hazardous fumes, so you must ventilate the work area very well. Then,
a new finish must be applied. Due to the fact that these systems are
merely paint coatings, they only lay on the surface, creating a weak
bond at best. The coating must then be allowed to air cure for 24
to 72 hours before the bathtub can be used. The finish is not permanent
and can eventually fail, chip, fade & peel.
Average Cost To Reglaze The Original Tubs Surface: $250.00 to $300.00
Average Cost To Strip Prior Reglaze & Refinsh Again: $450.00
