Bathroom Remodeling 101: Replacement Tub Upgrades

In homes with older bathroom constructions, it’s inevitable that an aging bathtub will become worn, scratched, chipped, and incrementally dingy-looking over time, despite hours of scrubbing with harsh chemicals and expensive cleaning products. Whether it’s those stubborn rings around the tub that won’t budge even after a thorough cleaning, or the losing battle against the mold and mildew caused by the trapped moisture in old, porous tile and cracked grout, it’s easy to get frustrated after countless hours spent maintaining a bathroom, especially without seeing the results we want.

As a family business offering top-rated bath remodeling services in Connecticut and the surrounding area, we know the importance of finding the right bathroom products and bath contractors. In general, bathrooms are usually one of the highest traffic areas in the house and prone to heavy wear-and-tear. This is especially true in Connecticut—primarily because many of the homes can suffer from hard water, which is high in dissolved minerals.

What many homeowners don’t know is that today’s bathroom remodels are fast, easy, and extremely low-maintenance, and designed to save you time and money in the long-run. If you’re ready for a new replacement tub, there’s never been a better time to upgrade.

In this guide, our expert bathroom contractors at Fiderio & Sons have answered your most important questions about tub replacement to get you ready for your upcoming bathtub remodeling project.

Do I Need a Full Bathtub Replacement?

There are many reasons that a replacement tub might be necessary. First and foremost, your older tub might be overrun with mold and mildew and impossible to clean properly. In this scenario, the areas around your bathtub can also become damaged, and a new tub might be a better option than just a new liner.

Another reason is that mobility issues can make bathtubs difficult and even unsafe to use. Your bathtub should fit your lifestyle needs, and new options like walk-in tubs have made this possible. You also might want to go for a full bathroom remodel to fit with the new style and space options that you have available, or for a fresher, more modern look that better compliments or adds to your bathroom décor choices.

Finally, your bathtub may simply be outdated, lacking the innovative new features that modern bathtubs offer. Any company offering bathtub remodeling projects should be able to offer you a design consultation to help you choose the option that works best for you.

Is Tub Replacement Expensive?

Bathroom tubs have come a long way in recent years and can be customized to suit your personal style, needs, and budget. Sounds expensive? Well, it can be, if you’re planning on a full bathroom renovation. However, you can quickly replace your tub and surround, making a big splash in little time.

Look into top-rated, reputable home remodeling companies like Fiderio & Sons that offer an ideal blend of full bathroom remodeling expertise and quick, efficient tub installation techniques with premium-quality acrylic bath products. Remember that a full-service bathroom remodeling contractor has the additional expertise you can benefit from, even when not completing a full-scale traditional bathroom remodel.

At Fiderio & Sons, our customers choose from a wide selection of wall surrounds, hardware, fixtures, and accessories to custom create the bathroom they want at the price they can afford. In addition, our fast, innovative installation techniques make it possible for your bath remodel to be completed in as little as a few days.
