Bathcare Vs. Liners

BathCare has been approached more than a few times, by liner manufactures. Why haven't We decided to welcome them into our business They have yet to prove to us; that they have solved all the problems associated with liners...

What Is A Liner?

Bathtub liners are pieces of PVC plastic or acrylic which are molded to the shape of a bathtub, placed over your existing tub, and then glued down to cover it up. Liners are marketed as an alternative to replacement or resurfacing.

 The cost is anywhere from $1000 to $2500 for a tub liner (not the walls)... the company that installs them pays less than $200 dollars for the same liner!

Why BathCare Doesn't Use Liners

  1. We still believe in restoring your existing tub.
    a.  This maintains the same look.
  2. We have been in the resurfacing business for nearly 20 years.
    a.  We Have 1000's Of Satisfied Customers.
  3. We can restore your tub for up to 80% cheaper than a liner.
    a.  Resurfacing lasts up to 20 years.
  4. We believe that the look of liners cannot compare to the beauty of our resurfacing material: GLAS-TECH 9000.
    a.  Liners are made of a PVC plastic material (which is not difficult to tell).
    b.  Our material has the look of original porcelain which shines like a new tub.

Main Problems With Liners

  1. Price.
    a.  We can restore your tub (or tub and tile!) for up to 80% cheaper than a tub liner.
  2. Time.
    a.  Liners take several weeks from measuring and ordering to the actual installation.<p
    b.  We can refinish in under one day from start to finish.
  3. Their Look.
    a.  Bathtub Liners do not look right in older homes with their existing tile (walls & floor), toilet, and sink. 
    b.  They truly cannot compare to the beauty of our refinishing material Glas-Tech 9000.
  4. Water seeping.
    a.  This is caused by the "flexing" movement of the liner. 
    b.  Any small crack or hole which develops in the caulking along the seam between the liner and the vertical wall surround can allow water to penetrate and build up between the liner and the old bath tub.
  5. Mildew...Yuk!
    a.  Mildew is the result from the water build-up trapped between the old tub and liner.
    b.  This is the #1 reason for there advice on installing a wall liner.
