When you look at your bathtub, several things may come to mind, including a professional bathtub reglazing for a new appeal. Peeling, stained, or cracked bathtubs look dirty and old, which undermines the look of your modern bathroom.
However, you don’t want to spend thousands of dollars buying a new bathtub. Professionals can give your old bathtub a new look through reglazing, which saves you cost and effort. But not all professionals will tell you the same thing.
To hire the best contractor for your glazing project, you need to consider a few things. Let’s discuss these to give you a better idea.
Reglaze, Don’t Replace
A majority of homeowners still think that modern bathrooms always need replacements for fixtures, tiles, etc. But now you have a better option which is reglazing. Contractors may neglect to mention this unless you ask them about it.
Glazing your bathtub will bring it back to life and make it appear brand new. Here’s why you need to opt for reglazing and not replacing even if a contractor tells you to:
- Resurfacing your bathtub is a hassle. This takes a lot more effort, meaning more debris, expensive labor, and a lot of mess.
- Reglazing a bathtub is more cost-effective. You save money on labor costs, waste, and other complex processes that need to be completed for your bathtub replacement.
- Reglazing protects your environment because you won’t have to throw away old fixtures, and most of the materials used in the process are eco-friendly.
Ask your contractor if glazing is possible with your current bathroom fixtures and avoid replacement unless necessary.
Doing Things, Yourself
There are specific DIY kits you can purchase for glazing your bathtub. Some of them are decent while others aren’t. However, if you ask for help from a contractor, they’ll ask you not to DIY glazing and hire them instead. This is because reglazing takes a skilled hand, and you don’t want a quick fix costing you a lot more in the long term.
