Q: Why shouldn’t I consider a new tub or a plastic tub-liner?
A: The cost of refinishing is considerably less than the cost of replacing or installing a tub-liner. Most tub-liners fail because water gets under the drain and or behind the caulking. This causes water to get trapped and stagnant between the old tub surface and the new plastic liner. Installing a new tub will include the added cost of replacing plumbing fixtures, wall board, wall tile, pipes, etc. With refinishing, your bathtub or wall tile will look brand new at a fraction of the cost, and with no mess to clean up.
