Has your fiberglass bathtub seen better days? Are there deep cracks, obvious holes, or layers peeling off of your tub? At Tub Tile & Tops, we’ve seen plenty of bathtubs in need of repair. In today’s article, we briefly explain three options for making your bathroom look as good as new again. The option you choose depends on the amount of time and money you wish to spend repairing your tub. Keep reading to learn more.
1. Use a Fiberglass Repair Kit
An inexpensive option for repairing your fiberglass tub is a fiberglass repair kit. These DIY kits can be found at any local hardware store. They usually include everything you need to repair your tub, including your choice of shaded filler paste to match the color of the fiberglass. You may need to have extra tools on hand such as a utility knife, sandpaper, power drill, heat gun, and other items.
2. Replace Your Bathtub
While replacing your tub and having a new one installed gives you a brand new bathtub, it is the most expensive option by far. If the damage to your current tub is extensive, this may be a good choice. If you’re looking to keep the tub you have and save a considerable amount of money at the same time, then this option may not be right for you.
3. Hire a Professional
An affordable option is to hire a professional fiberglass repair company, like Tub Tile & Tops, that can make your bathtub look brand new. High-quality fiberglass repair can extend the life of your tub by 10 to 15 years, plus you can save almost 85% compared to the cost of replacing the bathtub. By the time our trained technicians are done, you won’t even be able to tell where the damage was in the first place!
