Avoiding Costly Damage When Remodeling Your Bathroom
A common problem that is often encountered when remodeling your bathroom is damage such as surface scratches, cracks and chips to the unit. This can lead to water leaks that can damage other areas around the bathtub or shower unit such as walls and flooring. Replacing these units can be very costly and do-it-yourself repair kits can create an unappealing look for your unit that takes away from the look of your new bathroom.
Repairing Fiberglass Tub and Shower Units Instead of Replacing Them
When you have fiberglass tubs and showers installed in your home it is not uncommon for these fixtures to sustain some damage over time. From dropping shampoo bottles in the unit to unsupported bottoms that will wear down and crack over time, it may become necessary to decide whether or not you want to replace the unit or have a professional repair it for you.
If you are planning to remodel your bathroom and want to install a new bathtub or shower unit then you don’t want to pay a professional hundreds of dollars to provide the necessary services to get your unit looking great. However, if you have a one-piece fiberglass bathtub or shower installed then you will find that by having a contractor provide services that will erase away the damage that you notice will be a more economical decision.
Many one-piece bathroom tub and shower units must be removed by either breaking the unit up or cutting into the wall of the bathroom to get the unit out. This can lead to you being faced with expenses that are a small fortune in themselves.
Safeguarding Your Bathtub and Shower Units From Being Damaged During Remodeling
When remodeling your bathroom it may seem necessary to position ladders inside of the tub to work in tight corners. This can crack, scratch and chip the tub or shower unit. It is best to get scaffolding that can be used to maneuver around these areas or place the ladder on the outside of the tub or shower unit when it is being used. If you must place the ladder on the interior of the unit or rest it against the walls of your unit, place towels and other cushioning between the ladder and the bathtub or shower unit surfaces.
You spend a great deal of time and money repairing your bathrooms to get results. Don’t create more work for yourself by taking on the need to have damage that is done to your tubs and showers during these projects repaired as well.
