If your bathtub is one that you’ve been contemplating replacing, it’s probably time to do so. At P.J. Fitzpatrick, we love helping homeowners transform their bathrooms for the better and getting rid of an old, damaged, or unused bathtub is just one more step to a better space. Here are the top four reasons many people replace their tubs:
If your bathtub has major problems like cracks, chips, or holes, it may be time to replace it. Trying to repair an old bathtub can end up taking more time than you’d like and once it’s repaired, there’s always the possibility that more damage may occur in the future. Save yourself the trouble of fixing it and replace it with a beautiful tub from our bath experts.
Bathrooms are a major selling point for potential home buyers and if you’re remodeling your home, you might as well tackle the bathrooms (or at least the master bathroom). While you can spruce up a remodeled bathroom with new flooring and new fixtures, we suggest opting for a new bathtub; if the tub is a major focal point in the room, you’ll be glad you did.
It’s old and worn
Whether your bathtub suffers from mildew, is fashionably outdated, or has unsightly stains that you can’t remove no matter how hard you try, it’s probably for a new one. No one wants to bathe in a dirty-looking bathtub and replacing it can not only up the appeal of your bathroom, but it can also make the overall bath experience better.
You don’t use it
One of the most popular reasons for replacing a bathtub is because you simply don’t use it. Instead of letting your tub sit in your bathroom and take up space, why not convert it into a sleek, space-saving shower? Our bath experts can help you choose a design that complements your style and your budget so you can get rid of what you don’t need.
