Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to commonly asked questions

How much do bathtub repairs cost?
Bathtub repair costs vary depending on the nature of the project and your location. On average, you can expect to pay between $100-$300 for many plumbing and minor surface repairs.
How do I know if I need my bathtub repaired?
Many problems with your bathtub require immediate attention. If your bathtub is cracked or is leaking from its supply or drain lines, prompt repairs can prevent water from damaging floors, walls and ceilings. While surface damage and blemishes don’t typically cause leaks, if your tub has dings or problems with its finish, repairs can prevent additional damage and give new life to an old tub.
What kinds of bathtub repairs are available?
Repairs and upgrades to valves, faucets and showerheads can correct leaks and water supply problems and provide a new look or better functionality to an existing bathtub. Repair options for the tub and surrounding areas depend on its material and include patching, spot repairs, and tile replacement.
Should I repair or replace my bathtub?
Repairing a bathtub can extend its life by several years and is typically more economical than replacing it. However, if your tub has extensive damage that may lead to leaks and damage to the underlying structure of your home, repairs may not be a reliable long-term option. In that case, it might make more sense to invest in a replacement than risk more expensive repairs down the road.
How long do bathtub repairs take?
The length of time required to repair your tub depends on the nature of the work and the complexity of the job. Most simple plumbing and surface repairs can be made within a few hours, though more complex projects may take an entire day or two.

Bathtub Repairs

Bathtub problems can range from plumbing issues to broken tiles and damaged tub surfaces. Whether your tub is chipped and stained or the faucet is leaking, repairing it can give new life to your bathroom without the hassle and cost of replacing your entire bathtub.

Surface Repairs

Chips, scratches, dings and other damage to your tub’s surface can make it look rough and unsightly. Even if the damage doesn’t create leaks, these blemishes can lead to additional problems over time. Repairing small issues can prevent more extensive damage and improve the look of your bathtub. Patching problem spots such as cracks and rusty areas can prevent water leaks that will lead to mold growth and damage to floor, wall and ceiling materials.

Plumbing Repairs

If your tub is in good shape overall but suffers from issues with the water supply or drain, repairs may be needed to improve water pressure, fix leaks, or correct drainage. Replacing controls, faucets and showerheads can improve the water supply to your bathtub, while repairing supply and drain issues can prevent backups and leaks that could lead to additional problems and damage.

Whether you need a refinishing specialist or a licensed plumber, hiring a pro for your bathtub repair project will help you bring your bath to its former glory without the difficulty and expense of replacing the entire tub.
