What are the advantages to refinishing, rather than replacing, an old or damaged bathtub?

Cost is the primary reason for considering bathtub refinishing. Replacing a tub will likely require the removal of the surrounding walls, dramatically increasing the cost to install. Plus, the construction cost to repair and perfect the area after the tub installed can be enormous. On the other hand, bathtub resurfacing is a non-invasive process that restores your bathtub’s appearance and functionality without requiring any demolition and/or construction.
