Ok so you can purchase a brand new tub for $450.00, more or less.
But have you factored in the other costs alongside with it in the process of tub replacement?
Costs such as installation, demolition, hauling away of debris & sometimes even piping & flooring replacement may be needed. Plumbing & water proofing is an essential part of replacing your tub which you cannot do away with. You may also have a great chance of needing to break the tile surround which you would need to also replace. Then there’s the time element which is a given – That refinishing as opposed to replacement is hours away from achieving a brand new look instead of days & weeks! Of course you always have the option to remodel as you wish. But refinishing / re-glazing is still the most cost-effective way to making your tubs, tile surround, shower, vanities & sink look sparkling & brand new !
