Planning a Bathtub Replacement? Here’s What to Expect.
A bathtub replacement is a great way to update the look and functionality of your bathroom without all the hassles—and steep cost—of a full renovation. However, while it may be a less time- and cost-intensive investment than a bathroom remodel, it’s still a major home improvement that requires a bit of planning. So, if you’re beginning to plan a bathtub replacement for your home, dive into a bit about what you can expect here:
Deciding on Who is Going to Replace Your Bathtub
The first step of a bathtub replacement is deciding between going the DIY route and choosing a professional contractor to complete your project. Because the removal of the old tub and installation of the new one is a task that requires specific skills, tools, and knowledge, it is typically recommended to leave a bathtub replacement up to the professionals.
Look for a company that offers the type of replacement tub you’re after, as well as one-day installations so that your home and daily routine won’t suffer so much in the process. A company like Durante Home Exteriors™, for example, offers customizable, easy-to-clean bathtubs and expert installations that can be completed in as little as one day, thus minimizing any inconvenience and allowing you to enjoy your new tub that much sooner.
Designing Your New Bathtub
Before your bathtub replacement can be completed, you’ll need to actually choose the tub itself. The right company—such as Durante Home Exteriors™—will help guide you through this part of the process by walking you through all your options and helping you decide on the right aesthetic and functional features for your lifestyle and preferences. When in this part of the process, it’s important to keep certain things in mind about what you’re looking for in your new tub. For example, would you benefit from safety and accessibility features that reduce the risk of a slip-and-fall accident? Or, would you simply prefer better storage options for your ever-growing shelf of shower toiletries? Keep these questions in mind when you customize your new bathtub with elements like:
- Bathtub style
- Soap dishes
- Wall surrounds
- Tile colors, patterns, and textures
- Grab bars
Scheduling the Replacement
After designing your new bathtub, you’ll be able to work with your chosen company to select a date for the installation. The actual date can depend on things like product shortages and availability, but discussing this with your Project Guide or other specialist at the company can help you know exactly what to expect from your bathtub replacement.
When the day of your bathtub replacement does come around, it’s best to expect a bit of noise and disruption—but only temporarily. A major benefit of choosing a bathtub replacement over a traditional bathroom remodel is that the interruptions to your home are minimal, contained mainly just to the day of installation (unless extra time is needed for specific reasons). While a little bit of mess can be expected, a reliable company will ensure that their installation team handles everything with the utmost care, precision, and attention to detail for a flawless finish that simply exceeds your expectations.
