Bath Fitter - Avoid all tub liners:A replacement is cheaper
For anyone considering a liner for your tub: I got 5 quotes, 2 from replacements with real materials and 3 from acrylic liners like Rebath and Bath Fitters.
My advice: Get an americast tub with swanstone surround. It's the same money, or less, and it's real. It's solid. It removes your old tub/surround and replaces it. You find out what kind of trouble you may have behind the walls and you get that fixed.
Ok. The one drawback is that it's 3 day's work. But, often, the liners take more than one day, and often they drag on for weeks, with all their problems.
Since the prices came out pretty much the same, don't risk all the problems that come with liners. My plumber makes a good living ripping out those and replacing them, because they leak and fall apart. They're ***. Don't fall for the clever sales pitch. All 3 acrylic guys told me how bad the other 2 were. I decided to believe them and get the real thing, and I love it.
Avoid all liners. Period.
