Bathtubs are built to last for many years, but with everyday use, they might eventually need to be replaced. You may be holding on as long as possible to avoid the cost and hassle of a bathtub replacement project, but sometimes it’s unavoidable.
Here are a few telltale signs that it’s time to start looking for a new bathtub for a bathroom in your home:
Leaks can be a major issue because there may be problems under your tub that you can’t see. Water could be seeping into your home’s foundation, and if the tub is located upstairs, the flooring that’s supporting it could be rotting. Additionally, mold could be growing under your tub, creating potential health problems for your family.
It’s Stained by Mold & Mildew
If a bathtub hasn’t been properly cared for through the years, it’s possible for permanent stains to form. As your tub’s finish wears down it becomes more porous, allowing stains to seep in and become impossible to remove.
It Has Cracks or Chips
A chipped or cracked tub has lost its moisture barrier, which means it’s prone to rusting or leaking. Chips and cracks also aren’t aesthetically pleasing, and they can be uncomfortable against exposed skin.
It’s Out of Date
While older designs sometimes come back into style, there are plenty of bathtubs from the 20th century that don’t fit in with today’s style preferences. You don’t have to live with that mint green tile surrounding your bathtub.
Older bathtubs weren’t necessarily designed for comfort. Today’s soaker tubs put a much greater focus on comfort as they are ergonomically designed and come with upgrade options like neck rests, grab bars, and more.
