BATH FITTER Can Be a Quick and Painless Solution to an Out of Date Bath
I get a bath and shower renovation question almost every week. Can you give me some idea on bathroom remodeling costs or do you have a clue on what bathroom remodelers charge? Before I get into detail about bath and shower renovation costs I want to talk about what they actually do.
BATH FITTER is a company that was founded in 1984 that specializes in installing fiberglass and acrylic liners over old bathtubs and surrounding walls. The company has done such a fine job of marketing and franchising that it?s now like Kleenex. There are many companies that do this type of work, some are franchises and others are independent but most consumers use the word BATH FITTER? when describing someone who installs bathtub and wall liners.
In the last 10-years or so bath fitting type companies began doing quite a bit more than lining your bathtub and surrounding walls. They expanded their offerings to include remodeling of the entire bathroom. Let?s face it if your bathtub and bathtub surround is nasty there is a good chance the rest of the bathroom is also in disrepair.
So how does the process work and what goes into putting together a bath and shower renovation price? Obviously, it starts with a company representative or the owner/operator coming to your home to assess the work.
In the old days (just a few years ago) the rep would get out a tape measure, measure the bathtub or shower base and surrounding walls and price up the project. Now BATH FITTER? sticks a mini ?space-aged? laser next to the tub to take measurements. Honestly, the whole laser thing is a bit of a gimmick. The product still needs to be trimmed in the field for a perfect fit. BATH FITTER? costs depend largely on 5 things:
In an effort to get you the most up to date info I called an old pal of mine to give me an idea of an average bath and shower renovation cost for different services
If you’re looking for this type of service there are plenty of national and local businesses that offer them. Most care about the product they sell and some manufacturer supply and support independent franchises installing their product. They continually innovate making things more attractive and longer-lasting. I?ve seen several bathrooms done with a complete remodel and I couldn?t believe the results.
However, you choose to remodel your bathroom make sure your bath remodeler is licensed, bonded, insured and has taken out any necessary permits.?
