Bathtub Refinishing vs. Bathtub Liners

Bathtub liners are designed to fit over your existing bathtub and walls. They are typically made out of vinyl or plastic and can be installed in a day. However, the cost versus bathtub refinishing is about $1300 for the bathtub and $3000 if you include the wall surround. The average bathtub refinishing project is $400. Bathtub reglazing can save 70% versus the cost of a new liner.

Either a refinished bathtub or bathtub liner should last 12-20 years. This is based on a professionally done installation, proper cleaning and care, and the quality of the products.

However, bathtub liners are easily scratched and if a sharp edge touches a bathtub liner, it could be damaged. This is also true with a refinished bathtub. One must always follow the care instructions provided by the company doing the work.

An improperly installed bathtub liner can end up being a headache for you later on. Bathtub liners tend to leak at the joints, or at the drains, trapping water between the liner and the old bathtub. This could cause your bathtub liner to develop mold. If this occurs the only way to remove the mold is to remove the bathtub liner.
