Refinish or Replace?

You’ve been aching to do a full bathroom remodel, but you just don’t have the time or money. However, the bathtub in your master bathroom is just too terrible to leave it the way it is any longer. Don’t stress, our team at Virginia Restoration Services has the answer – bathtub refinishing. Refinishing a bathtub is a great way to breathe new life into your bathroom without doing a full remodel! Read on to find out if your bathtub is a good candidate for refinishing.

Replace or Refinish?

Do You Like Your Tub?

If you live in an older home, chances are that you may have a claw-foot, cast iron, or antique tub. Replacing a bathtub of this quality would be extremely expensive. On the less expensive end of the price spectrum, an antique tub begins at around $900; however, an antique can cost in excess of $2500. Our expert team has completed several refinishing projects for claw-foot tubs, making them look brand new.

Is Your Tub Damaged Beyond Repair?

Our refinishing process can repair most damage that seems unrepairable; however, some tubs may have too much damage. Web-like surface cracks can be fixed easily with a simple resurfacing job. We can sand down the cracks and repair, with no fear of the cracks returning! However, any structural cracks cannot be repaired by refinishing. Likewise, surface rust can be repaired whereas rust that has eaten holes in your tub cannot.

Are You Short on Time?

No one loves to live without a bathroom. Tearing out an old bathtub and replacing it with a new one can take several days or even weeks to complete – depending on whether you’re doing the job yourself or hiring someone to get it done. In contrast, tub refinishing can save you valuable bathroom remodeling time. The process usually takes less than 24 hours before the tub is usable again!
