Replacement Bathtubs vs Bathtub Liners

When remodeling your bathroom, it's important to do things the right way. That's why it's recommended to invest in a new bathtub rather than installing a bathtub liner. If you're worried about the cost, choose a bathroom remodeling company with financing opportunities. There are a number of reasons why a bathtub replacement is the better option including the following:

  • Uncover Water Damage
  • Durable & Long-Lasting
  • Accessibility Opportunity

Uncover Potentially Underlying Water, Mold, and Mildew Issues

When you choose to replace your old tub, you have the unique opportunity to make sure everything is sealed and damage-free. When the existing bathtub gets removed, it exposes the base flooring and wall studs that would otherwise be covered. As a savvy homeowner, you can use this opportunity to address any concerns that may exist including water damage, mold, or mildew.

New Bathtubs Outlive Bath Liners Every Time

When considering a tub versus a liner, it's as simple as analyzing the lifespan of the two products. A bathtub will last decades when compared to a thinner bath liner. At the end of the day, installing a bath liner is like covering up a problem instead of solving it.

When installed, bath liners can sometimes leave small gaps between the liner and tub if not sized perfectly. This can also cause mold or mildew to grow beneath the liner and cause the effect of buckling. Eventually, the bath liner will come up from the tub, leaving a mess.

Upgrade to an Accessible Walk-in Bathtub

Replacing your tub is an opportunity to reimage the possibilities of your bathroom. Enjoy an accessible option that allows you to age in place for longer. A walk-in tub is the perfect solution to increase independence and mobility. A bath liner does not provide advantages to accessibility as your existing tub will still be hard to step in and out of.
