What Kind of Bathtub Repairs Are Most Common?
There are numerous different kinds of issues that can happen with a bathtub that would necessitate repair and that we will be able to help you with.
To name a few, these include:
Regardless of what task you need, the basic process for repairs will be very similar, which we will dive into next.
What Is The Basic Process For Bathtub Repair?
The basic process for professional bathtub repair will be to use polyester resins, which are waterproof, to fill up all visible chips and cracks. Once those chips and cracks have been sanded and filled up, we will then delicately apply acrylic enamel coating with air brush. The result means that the chips and cracks will be ‘blended’ into the surrounding surface, meaning that it will be hidden from view.
In fact, the once highly visible chips and cracks should become invisible. Take note that this is not a process that the strong majority of people are able to do on their own, because it truly requires an artists eye and hand to get it done right. Furthermore, to ensure proper color matching, professional help will almost always be necessary as well.
The resulting repairs means that your bathtub can literally look just as good as new.
Would Replacing The Entire Bathtub Be Better?
To answer this question quickly: it depends on the damage dealt to the tub. If the damage is truly excessive, then yes, a full replacement could be the only viable option. But on the other hand, most cracks and chips will only necessitate repair, and the vast majority of damage that we personally see with bath tubs only necessitate repair rather than a full on replacement job.
In addition, you will save literally thousands of dollars by opting to have the bathtub repaired rather than replaced. This is because the cost of bathtub repair is typically in the hundreds, while the cost of bathtub replacement is in the several thousands.
