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.
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.
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.
