Benefits and Installation
Why have a Bath Fitter acrylic bathtub or tub liner installed instead of removing the old tub?
Removing a bathtub is a difficult and messy job. The process can damage flooring, bathroom walls and plumbing, and put your bathroom out of service for days or even weeks. A Bath Fitter acrylic liner looks exactly the same and is installed right over existing tiling in as little as one day. If necessary, we repair any damaged areas in your wall first to ensure a solid, secure base for your new tub or shower surround.
Why shouldn’t I just use bathtub resurfacing or bathtub refinishing?
Repainting or resurfacing is a short-term option that will need to be done again within two to five years. A Bath Fitter acrylic tub liner or acrylic shower is guaranteed for as long as you own your home.
Is the one-piece Bath Fitter wall installed right over my old tile?
Yes. Our unique, one-piece seamless wall system is installed right over existing tiling. If necessary, we repair any damaged areas in your wall first to ensure a solid, secure base for your new tub surround or shower surround.
How will it look when it’s done?
Like a brand-new bathroom.
How long will a Bath Fitter acrylic bathtub liner or shower surround last?
Acrylic has been used extensively in bathtubs and spas throughout North America for 25 or 30 years and much longer in Europe. Unlike porcelain, fiberglass or enamel surfaces, acrylic can be maintained and kept looking brand new with a simple buffing compound. And because acrylic is colored all the way through, minor scratches won’t show and deeper ones can be buffed out.
What type of warranty does Bath Fitter offer?
Bath Fitter’s acrylic bathtubs, tub surrounds, replacement showers and shower conversions are guaranteed for as long as you own your home. Subject to limitations. See your location for details.
What does it cost?
Everything we do is custom; no two bathrooms are the same. Without seeing what is there now, it’s impossible to quote accurately. However, pricing is determined by what you choose as well as the condition and complexity of what is already there. We’ll assess all this and more as part of a free in-home estimate.
