For many people, taking a long, hot bath is a reward for a long day at work. It’s a great way to relax and unwind. But if your tub is chipped, scratched, dull, or permanently dirty, you might simply forget about taking a bath. It won’t even cross your mind. Your tub will simply sit there, unused and deteriorating.

If this describes your situation at home, it might be time to consider refinishing your bathtub.

Should I Replace or Refinish My Bathtub?

We live in a culture where you throw things away instead of repairing them. In many cases, replacements are cheaper than repair. But that’s not exactly true for bathtubs.

Even though the actual bathtub might cost as little as $200, the installation will cost well over $1,000. That’s because replacing a bathtub may require new plumbing or at least plumbing repairs. It may require new flooring, trim, and tiles. It depends on the specific construction of your bathroom. But the costs can quickly (and unexpectedly) mount into the thousands. Not good!

Tub refinishing, on the other hand, will cost anywhere from $300 to $1,000. There are no extra charges involved because nothing has to be torn out from the floor or the walls. These cost savings are a huge advantage. Plus you get to keep your bathroom the way it is. Unless you’re already planning to start a bathroom remodeling project, refinishing your bathtub is the more sensible option.

Should I Buy a DIY Bathtub Refinishing Kit?

Although many do-it-yourself stores sell bathtub refinishing kits, and they are very cheap, we don’t necessarily recommend it. DIY kits usually depend on an epoxy adhesion to bond the material to the surface. These consumer-grade products have a tendency to chip and degrade much faster than our professional products. You may end up wasting a lot of time refinishing your tub, only to find that a few months down the road it has deteriorated once again.

How Long Will a Refinished Tub Last?

Refinished bathtubs should be treated like brand new ones. That means using non-abrasive cleaning tools and products. That means no bleach either! Choosing the right cleaning products is the only way to keep your tub looking good as new.

A professionally refinished bathtub should have a lifespan comparable to a brand new bathtub. With the right care, a refinished tub can last as much as 20 years. This is a big reason to opt for a refinished tub rather than a replacement. Refinishing is not a temporary fix. It’s a permanent improvement.
