In part #1 we spoke about saving money and time by getting your tub and tiles refinished instead of replacing them. What I didn’t mention there was by how much you would save.
Tiles are cheap and an inexpensive fibreglass bathtub would only cost a few hundred dollars.
However, if you are not doing the work yourself, the contractor will charge you an arm and a leg for
1) The removal of the old bathtub and tiles.
2) The installation of the new bathtub and tiles,
3) the installation of new plumbing, if any and new fixtures,
4) the disposal. The job may take between 1-2 weeks and may cost between $2000-5000 for materials/parts and labour.
