Bathtub Replacement Solutions
Don’t’ even think about painting your old tub when you can get a new tub installed last a lifetime. Bathtub refinishing is the process of restoring the surface of an old bathtub to improve the bathtub’s appearance and repair surface damage. The process often involves the use of hazardous chemicals including methylene chloride, acids, and isocyanates. At least 14 workers have died since 2000 as a result of using stripping agents containing methylene chloride during bathtub refinishing.
Beside the dangers of using chemicals in your home is the fact that your tub will peel, it’s not IF, but when. Home buyers are more aware of this trick to hide the condition of their old tub. HOME INSPECTORS are looking and informing the potential buyers that the tub has been painted and are asking for a new tub replacement before making the purchase.
