Don’t know what to do with the worn-out bathtub at your spa or tired of the old color and style? In both ways, replacing it can be expensive and tedious, and there are better ways to fix it, so why burden your bank account? There are many ways to give your bathtub a makeover, even when installing a new bathtub is not in the equation for you.
The two popular options to revitalize your spa with a better bathtub can be through bathtub refinishing or tub liners. Your current tub can stay in its place, and you can enjoy a new bathtub experience.
Bathtub Refinishing or Reglazing
Refinishing your bathtub is essentially reglazing the surface of your bathtub. It is a step-by-step process that involves applying a new chemical coating on your bathtub at the top of the old one. The refinishing experts clean, patch, and paint over the surface without removing anything; making it appear as new and shiny as ever before.
A bathtub liner is a liner for your tub, made of acrylic or PVC that is just placed inside your existing tub. The liner looks just like a smaller version of your existing tub and is molded to the tub’s shape and fixed in with a chemical. Bathtub liners are fixed by experts who first take the measurements of your bathtub and then create a liner that would fit like a glove, leaving your tub squeaky clean and new.
The Pros and Cons
Like every process, both bathtub refinishing and liners have some pros and cons. Although it’s nothing that’d make you opt-out of going for them, there are some things that you’d like to keep in mind before and after getting the job done, so you can take better care of your bathtub to make sure the job lasts longer.
Both processes share the same pros: you wouldn’t have to worry about replacing your tub, so it wouldn’t weigh on your budget. Tub Liners also have the added pros that it is a fairly quick process compared to bathtub refinishing.
What Is The Right Choice For Your Spa?
Being a spa-owner that is looking to provide a better experience for your customers while keeping your budget in mind, you would want to go for something that is safe, healthy, and lasts a few years.
Bathtub liners can last between four to five years – depending on how well you take care of them and the material you’ve chosen for the liner. Since water can get between the liner and tub, it might end up developing mold and mildew. Though, if it has been installed properly, it can last for a lot longer than that because a liner is thicker and more durable.
Bathtub refinishing can last you for quite a while if you take proper care of it. Since it is a chemical peel covering the surface, you don’t have to worry about water seeping and creating mold. Moreover, refinishing also results in a better and shinier appearance.
