Stains or discoloration may look ugly but cracks in your bathtub or shower enclosure pose a far more serious problem. If the bottom of your tub or shower is leaking, water can get trapped in the cracks and contribute to mold growth which will have repercussions on the sanitary conditions in your entire home. Mold spreads quickly and causes great structural damages over time. It will develop unseen under your tub or shower and will result in severe deterioration of the living conditions in your home and even in health problems. So, cracks do not rank among minor cosmetic damages and their presence is a clear sign that your bathtub needs to be replaced with a new one. However, the high price and the great inconvenience involved in total replacement make the process rather undesirable. You have the beneficial option to have the leaking bottom repaired instead.
If your fiberglass or acrylic tub bottom is broken and you need to take immediate measures in order to prevent further damages to your bathroom, but total replacement doesn’t fit in your daily schedule or in your budget, call Supertubs, LLC for custom-made bathtub and shower inlays that perfectly fit over the damaged surface.
Inlay Installation Process
Supertubs, LLC craftsmen will visit your home to discuss your preferences and take precise measurements of the cracked bathtub or shower bottom. When the custom-made inlay is ready, we will come to install it properly. First, we clean the entire surface of the bathtub or shower and apply an adhesive layer to securely hold the inlay in place. Then, we remove the fixtures, install the inlay, and put the fixtures back in their rightful places. The edges of the bathtub inlay are carefully caulked to keep moisture from getting between the new inlay and the original surface. The resulting top layer is very durable and easy to maintain.
Depending on various factors, the final price may not be much lower than the one required for total replacement but the convenience and the speed of the installation (your bathtub will be ready for use in 24 hours) make inlays a widely preferred option.
Safeway Step Conversion
Another innovative service that Supertubs, LLC offers in addition to inlay installation is the installation of a safety step. A Safeway Step conversion allows you to safely enter and exit your bathtub or shower enclosure. The service is offered for fiberglass, steel, or cast iron bathtubs and costs just a small fraction of the expenses required for a full replacement with a bathtub or a shower with an adequately pre-cut safety step.
Our craftsmen measure your bathtub opening and cut out the required area. Then we install your new step securely in place, considerably reducing the possibility of falls. Grab bars can also be provided at the same time upon request. The entire process takes several hours and you can use your new step-in shower or bathtub the very next day.
