If you’re using a bathtub to bathe, the chances are that you’ve either heard of bathtub liners or have used one. Bathtub liners are installed on an existing tub to prolong its life and enhance both its durability and reliability.
Using bathtub liners lets users benefit from having bathtubs reinforced with anti-microbial resistance, high impact resistance,high scratch resistance, high resistance to bathroom cleaning chemicals,high dimensional stability,stiffness, excellent molding characteristics, and UV resistance. If a homeowner lacks the budget to conduct a complete bathroom refurnishing that includes the replacement of the bathtub can find installing bathtub liners to be a good alternative.
Many bathtub liners are made from acrylic thanks to their appearance, but such tub liners tend to be brittle. Acrylic bathtub liners also suffer from cracks when installed incorrectly, which means that people would need professional help to install them. Most DIY tub liners are made from PVC since they’re known for their durability, which also makes them expensive.
A large number of companies offer acrylic bathtub liners installations since homeowners can’t do the job efficiently without the services of a professional team. Services per company can vary, but people can be sure that they’d be spending a few thousand for both the tub liner and the installation.
In general, people would spend from $700 to $1400 for a tub liner alone, but having professionals install the tub liner would average $3,000 as the lowest price and $7,000 as the highest. The price for tub liners increases as people request additional features for their liners including matching wall panels, shelves, grab bars, and built-in soap dishes.
When looking for a bathtub liner contractor, people should look for credible ones with enough experience that offers high-quality products and works with professionals to get the job done.
