If you are like most homeowners you probably have a lot of questions when it comes to bathroom renovations, and cost is likely at the forefront. Unfortunately there is no short, or easy answer.
There is a multitude of factors that must be taken into consideration when you think about renovating your bathroom. Depending on what you feel needs updating or replacing in your bathroom, your costs could run from hundreds of dollars, up to several thousand.
Refinishing and Acrylic Liners
For instance, maybe you have a beautiful jacuzzi tub that you adore but the dusty rose colour just doesn’t match your modern subway tile backsplash. You don’t need to abandon it just yet, you could simply fit an acrylic liner over the existing tub giving you a fresh new feel with a modern look.
Alternatively, you could breathe new life into that old tub through a process of refinishing the surface using a time proven method by Kott Koatings, free from any carcinogens or harmful chemicals.
The cost of an acrylic liner and tub surround starts around $3,000 and increases depending on the style and design of walls and shelving you’d like installed. To refinish your current tub the cost starts around $600.
Average Cost Of Common Renovations
Refinishing $600 +
Acrylic Liners $3,000 +
Replacement $3,000 +
Perhaps your entire bathroom is hanging on to the era of feathered hair, or bell-bottoms and you however, are ready for an updated look. We can replace tubs, toilets, faucets, vanities, anything and everything you need to update your bathroom’s style to match your own.
While both refinishing and acrylic liners save you time and money as opposed to replacement,tub and surround replacement is still the most popular option for our customers as it allows us to see exactly what is happening below the surface.
When we install a new tub for you we remove the old tub and surround, including the old drywall, and drain assembly. This lets us see if there have been any leaks, or if there has been any other damage that will require our attention. This option provides you with the longest lasting results, and is the only option that is sure to address underlying issues.

Allows for full suite of customisation options
Catch hidden problems before they happen
Cost is only a small increase compared to liners
The cost to remove your old tub and surround then replace it with a new tub and surround starts around $3,000 and goes up depending on the style of tub, type of surround (acrylic, tile, stone) and any accessories you choose.
