After many years of use, bathtub surfaces begin to wear away. With age, they can become unsightly no matter how much effort you dedicate to cleaning. So, what are the options? The first, of course, is to replace the old tub with an entirely new one. The second is to resurface the existing tub with a glaze. The last option, and the one that we think is the best, is to install an acrylic tub liner.
When evaluating these three options, keep in mind that replacing the old tub involves significant construction and comes with a high price tag. Re-glazing is a quicker and cheaper method but it involves bringing dangerous chemicals into your home. Many glazes may also contain lead.
Acrylic tub liners however, create the same brand new effect as re-glazing but the installation does not involve any harsh chemicals that could cause harm to you or your loved ones. Acrylic tub liner installation is quick, safe and hassle-free. Not to mention, acrylic liners are not only easy to maintain but also help keep your bath water warmer longer!
Whenever doing any type of work on your home, safety is a top priority. Acrylic tub liners avoid the use of nasty chemicals and will still give your bathroom the makeover it needs.
