The overall vibe of your bathroom is greatly impacted by the condition of your bathtub and shower. If your tub and shower need some TLC, you might be wondering whether you need to replace them or if a thorough refinishing job will be sufficient to breathe new life into your space.

Whether you choose to replace or refinish will depend on a variety of factors. Below are some of the key considerations to help you make a sound decision.

Deciding Between Refinishing or Replacing Your Bathtub or Shower

Your bathing fixtures are essential elements of your bathroom and when your tub or shower begins to look dated, tired, or old, a revamp is necessary. Many homeowners wonder if a full tub or shower replacement is necessary or if refinishing will do the trick. Your decision will be based on a couple of factors. These include:

  • The State of Your Current Tub or Shower: Have you noticed minor, surface-level issues with your bathtub or shower? A refinishing job might be enough to make your bathing fixture look brand new again. Reglazing can help restore the surface of your tub or shower and allow you to enjoy your bathing experience again. While tiny imperfections may be temporarily fixed with refinishing, there are many bathtub and shower issues that simply require a replacement. If you have discovered cracking, leaks, or loss of functionality, a replacement is probably the better option.
  • Your Budget: Your budget is another important consideration when it comes to deciding whether to refinish or replace. A tub replacement or shower replacement is, of course, pricier than a refinishing job, but will last much longer and is an excellent investment in your home. If you are looking to get a durable new bathing fixture that you can enjoy for years to come, a replacement is the better choice.
