If you believe in the mystical powers of soaking in a bath after a long day, then you also understand the importance of owning a quality bathtub. Imagine trying to relax in a tub that’s stained, rusty, or lacking the tech that you need to slip into pure bliss. Not very fun, right? These are all sure signs that it’s time to upgrade your bathtub. But do you really need to replace it or can you get away with reglazing it? We have your answers in this article.

When to Reglaze

Reglazing a bathtub is a short-term upgrade, and it’s important you realize that. That said, it’s an excellent option for homeowners who are looking to save where they can while still benefiting from an aesthetically pleasing upgrade.

When to Replace

If your bathtub is obsolete and no longer suits your lifestyle or it’s significantly damaged, then it’s time to replace it. A bathtub replacement ensures that you benefit from a durable product that meets all of your needs, whether that’s jets or an ergonomic profile. Investing in a replacement is also a good idea if you’re planning to sell your home, as homebuyers will see it as a valuable asset.
