Refinishing your Bathtub vs Replacement
One of the main reasons people choose bathtub refinishing is the savings verses replacement. …Or… Maybe you have a vintage tub that you’d like to keep, but it’s showing it’s age and not looking as good as it could? The main reason people choose replacement is that they have never even heard of bathtub refinishing!
Replacing your bathtub due to out-of-date colors, rust or damage that could otherwise be repaired can be a real headache and consume a lot of your free time and money. The costs of replacing your tub can quickly add up to more than you wanted to initially spend. Bathtubs run around $200-$300 at big box stores, however, most people don’t take into account the costs associated with the replacement process. The current tub needs to be ripped out, causing damage to surrounding floor and wall tiles. You will need to dispose of it as well – hopefully the tub isn’t multiple floors above ground! You’ll also need multiple licensed contractors and a licensed plumber. You may need to apply for a permit. If the bathtub isn’t an exact fit, the plumbing will need to be altered to fit the new tub. The tiles on the floor and wall that were damaged need to be replaced. Sounds like a lot, doesn’t it? You CAN choose to skip the headaches! Give Budget Refinishers a call and keep it simple and inexpensive and still get the result you desire. You can modernize and upgrade the look of your bathroom in hours, not weeks! Your bathtub will be completed in 2-3 hours and needs only 24 hours to cure & dry. On average, you’ll save a minimum of 30% to 70% on refinishing your existing bathtub vs. replacing your tub.

NON-SLIP SAFETY SURFACES:
Years were spent developing an anti-slip application for bathtub bottoms to prevent accidents due to slips and falls. The standard plastic bath mat fails to do this, if anything, makes it worse! We here at Budget Refinishers care about the safety of you and your family. We use a special product that can be installed during the bathtub refinishing process. The Non-Slip mat is applied in the shape of a bath mat. Our special non-slip product can be built into the finish and will offer slip protection for the life of the refinished tub.
Surprisingly, most children are supervised while they are injured in the bathtub. Budget Refinishers solves that problem with the addition of our Non-Slip mats. Rest assured, our Non-Slip product offers 10 times the national standard for a slip resistant surface. The surface can easily be cleaned with mild liquid soap.

(Please note: we do not refinish tiled shower floors. Why? Because it’s the nature of a shower pan to hold moisture, and that moisture can work its way up through the grout lines and eventually cause the floor surface to bubble and peel up. Budget Refinishers stands by our work, therefore we will not do work that doesn’t hold up to a warranty!)
