People contemplating major bathroom remodeling projects sometimes wonder whether or not they should ask their contractor to replace their bathtub. This very personal decision usually affects both the final appearance of the room and the total price. Replacing an old bathtub during a renovation can save homeowners the additional costs and hassle caused by maintenance issues. Quality bathtubs can last a decade or more, but those that have seen too many years can create endless problems.
Bathtubs that may crack or leak in the near future may pose a risk to drywall and other construction materials. Mold and fungal infestations caused by a leaky bathtub can also require significant expense to address them. Replacing a bathtub during bathroom remodeling projects offers a more convenient opportunity to eliminate many of the potential maintenance problems caused by older bathtubs. In many bathroom remodeling projects, it's common for homeowners to focus on replacing the bathtub.
