You know that your bathtub is not going to last forever, but you do not want to wait until you have water damage to replace it. How do you know when it is time to replace your bathtub or have it repaired?
Your Bathtub is Leaking
One of the tell-tale signs that it is time to replace your tub is that it is leaking. It is essential to remember just how serious water damage can be. If you leave the leak to fester, your floors and wall could rot. Dangerous mold could grow, which is both difficult and expensive to get rid of. Replacing your tub before serious water damage occurs is vital.
You Want to Sell Your Home
If you are planning to put your home on the market, then it might be time to also put your current bathtub into the landfill. One of the most important aspects of a home for a potential buyer is the bathroom. If you have an old bathtub, they are less likely to be impressed. However, if you replace it with a newer unit that impresses, then it could help sell your home.
Your Bathtub Does Not Meet Your Needs
It might be that when you moved into your home, you rarely took baths. If you now take many more baths, then you would want a better tub. Likewise, if your mobility has decreased and you need more safety, or if you want jacuzzi jets that offer therapeutic value, there is nothing wrong with upgrading your tub to better meet your needs.
You’re Out of Room
The truth is that a bathtub takes up a lot of space. If your bathroom is relatively small and you want to dramatically increase the space available to you, then you might consider installing a shower stall. We can help you with this installation too, and it can help to give you room for extra storage or simply to free up space, so it is more comfortable to get ready in your bathroom.
