Bathtub Reglazing is a Better Alternative to a Tub Liner - at about 10% of the cost
The Cost of Bathtub liners
Although choosing an acrylic bathtub liner (overlay system) over traditional ‘tear out and replacement” of your bathtub may save you some money, reglazing is still the most cost effective method available. Average tub liners can start at about $1,800 and go up to as much as $5000, while the average refinishing job with Go Green Reglazing (GGR) can be as little as $300. The bottom line: reglazing is much less expensive and leaves your tub/tile feeling like a tub/tile-not like plastic. And Go Green Reglazing backs every reglazed surface with a solid 5-year warranty.
Why is reglazing better than a liner?
• retains the “feel” of the original tub and tile - your tub doesn't have that "plastic" look and feel. GGR reglazed surfaces look and feel like new porcelain - sparkling, bright, and beautiful!
• water cannot get trapped under the surface - a common problem with liners. A GGR reglazed tub will never have that problem. Your reglazed tub will give you years of quality service and beauty, backed by our solid warranty.
• better looking - a GGR reglazed tub looks like new porcelain - not plastic.
• available in any color - your choice of white to black and anything in between. We custom reglaze to match or compliment your unique decor. At no extra charge.
• dozens of patterns/colors for tile - a liner is a liner is a liner. Our selection of patterns and colors for tubs, tile, and countertops is exciting, beautiful, extraordinary...anything but boring!
• fast-one day service - you'll be using your beautiful reglazed tub the same day we do the job - not weeks from the time you order. We don't keep you waiting!
Time to Install Bathtub Liner
Installing bathtub liners is much more time intensive than bathtub refinishing. First, a sales person comes to your home with a contract for you to sign. Then, either the sales person or another technician measures your tub. The liner is then manufactured at an off-site factory, increasing the likelihood of discrepancies between the liner and your actual tub's measurements. Then the liner is shipped to the installer. Once the installer receives the liner, they schedule another appointment for installation. The entire process can take anywhere from 3 to 6 weeks from the initial conversation with the sales person. With GGR, our factory-trained technicians from one of our Tampa Bay area locations come to your home, set up, apply, clean up, and are out within a matter of hours.
Water Accumulation from Liners
Bathtub liners are designed to fit over your existing bathtub and walls. Several problems that may occur are the result of water building up in the space between the existing tub and the installed liner. This is next to impossible to remove without replacing the liner itself. Over time, this water becomes stagnant, and will lead to offensive odors and unsanitary mold and mildew. The following issues can result in this water buildup:
GGR refinishing eliminates open spaces because our process creates a permanent molecular bond between the new finish and the existing substrate. Moisture cannot accumulate, thus eliminating the problem.
Bathtub Liner Replacement
Due to the manner in which they are installed, bathtub liners can be difficult to replace if they do eventually wear out or fail. Removal involves ripping or cutting the old liner out, re-cleaning the original surface, and going through the whole installation process again.
Limited Selection of Color for Bathtub Liners
Unlike bathtub refinishing, bathtub liners usually come in a limited selection of colors. Some liners are made from plastic, and do not have the glossy appearance of a new acrylic surface. GGR can custom design any color you can imagine, and can even color-match to your existing bathroom fixtures. Our process works on porcelain, fiberglass and acrylic. Reglazing also preserves the look and feel of your high quality cast iron bathtub. Your newly reglazed surface will look and feel like porcelain…not plastic.
