Are you a homeowner that cringes every time you walk into a bathroom in your house? It may be outdated, or the tub may be cracked and worn. Is it time to bring that bathroom into the 21st century? Replacing an old tub is one of the best options for updating a bathroom, but removing an old tub and replacing it with a new one can be an expensive project. Many homeowners aren’t aware that a bath liner can be installed over the old tub for a fresh new look at a fraction of the replacement cost. But there are a few things that should be noted before starting a bath liner project.
Bathroom Remodeling in Milwaukee: Bath Liners
What is a Bath Liner?
A bath liner is also called a tub insert or an acrylic tub liner. It is a large sheet of plastic that is heated and molded to fit a bathtub. While replacing an entire tub can be costly, installing a tub liner is at the lower end of bathroom remodeling costs. It’s a project that most homeowners won’t be able to do themselves.
How Long Does it Take?
The actual installation takes about one day. But prepping and scheduling the installation may take a few weeks. Do you want the remodeling done because a special occasion is coming up where visiting family may stay in the home? Set a deadline at least a month before that occasion to give a chance for the bath liner to be installed and do any other bathroom remodeling projects.
What’s Your Budget?
What is the budget? Although tub liners are less expensive than tub replacements, they still can put a dent in your wallet. Get estimates from the installers before agreeing to the work. Also, some contractors accept credit cards, but not all do, so check with your installer about the methods of payment they accept before signing a contract.
Are There Different Colors?
Tub liners come in different colors, but the selection is limited to white, ivory or cream, and black.
