Refinishing a bathtub is typically the most inexpensive and the least time-consuming option above all the others available: liner or conventional remodeling (replacement). The average tub replacement cost varies between $1,800 and $4,100 since it is a process that involves the demolition of walls and floors, debris disposal, drywall installation, tile installation, plumbing, etc., with all the skyrocketing costs of labor associated with it.
Liners, the other choice at hand when the bathtub is damaged, dated, or ugly, as opposed to bathtub refinishing, can cost almost as much as replacing a tub and they tend to accumulate water in between the liner and the original tub, which can lead to unhealthy mold and mildew along with undesirable odor and other potential health problems associated with mold and/or mildew. On our page: Why Refinish we also discussed this topic in further detail.
