A bathroom remodeling project used to be a huge undertaking which required the removal of not only the shower, tub, toilet, and sink, but also the walls and floors. Most bathroom remodels were taken down to the beams and rebuilt from scratch using all new materials and fixtures, an expensive, inconvenient and messy process. The whole process could take weeks or even months and demand a huge investment in time and money. Fortunately, many eastern Iowa homeowners find they can now avoid a lot of the hassle of a bathroom remodel with products from Bath Planet, a manufacturer of acrylic bath and shower systems.
How does a Bath Planet remodeling project work?
Bath Planet’s acrylic products, proudly manufactured in the USA, come in a wide variety of colors, styles and finishes. These liners may have the look of ceramic tile and granite but the acrylic surface is non-porous so it is naturally resistant to mold and mildew. Which allows you to have all the style with easier maintenance! Bath Planet dealers work with well-known brands like Moen and American Standard for top quality accessories and trim.
Once you’ve worked with one of our designers to choose the perfect liner style for your bathroom, our highly trained crew will take very detailed measurements of your existing bath or shower and walls. These measurements are used to create a custom liner Bath Planet system to fit your space perfectly. Finally, our local crew of factory certified installers will remove the existing fixtures and expertly completes the installation.
Bathtub and Shower Replacement Done Right
Acrylic baths and showers have been used extensively in bathtubs and spas throughout Europe and North America for over 30 years. Unlike porcelain, fiberglass or enamel surfaces, acrylic tubs can be maintained and kept looking brand new even after years of use with easy to use, inexpensive cleaning products.
It is possible but dangerous to install a new liner over tub old tub or walls. If you take this shortcut, you may just be covering up your bathroom’s underlying problems. Home Town Restyling always removes the existing bathtub and shower basin before installing a new replacement liner to ensure that the project is finished safely and completely.
As we discussed in Scary Things That Lurk Under Your Tub you need to check out the condition of the sub-flooring and structure before you install the new fixtures. Without this step, you put yourself at great risk of having bigger, more expensive problems down the line.
Another drawback to installing a new liner directly over an existing bathtub is the space you lose. It may not seem like much but an overlaid liner will result in a narrower bath and higher tub walls which can make the area feel more cramped and less comfortable.
Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval
All Bath Planet products carry the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, which gives homeowners an extra level of protection. The Seal promises that if any Bath Planet product is determined to be defective within two years of the date of purchase, Good Housekeeping will replace or repair the product or refund the purchase price.
Bath Planet’s lifetime warranty covers homeowners for as long as they own their residence. All accessories, wall surrounds, and shower liners are under warranty for chipping peeling, cracking and fading.
Finally, Home Town Restyling backs up Bath Planet’s already powerful warranty with its own 20 year guarantee on workmanship. One product – three levels of protection.
