Service for Your Next Bathtub Remodel in Ottawa

When they need to wash up in a hurry, most people turn to the shower. But when it's time to relax and unwind with a long, hot soak, the bathtub is an absolute necessity. It's not just about bathing—it's about taking a deep breath, getting in some "me" time and washing away the cares and stresses of the day. That may be easier said than done if your current bathtub is a damaged, deteriorated eyesore that is in desperate need of a bathtub remodel. Ottawa homeowners can get some major benefits from an expertly-done bathtub replacement project.

Want your home and household to experience the advantages of a brand-new bathtub remodel? Ottawa residents don't have to look too far to find the right team to take care of their project. The Ottawa bathtub and shower remodellers at Bytown Better Bathtubs & Showers have the experience and skill to remove your old tub and put in a shiny, new bathtub replacement that can transform your entire bathroom for the better—in a single day!

Key Benefits of Getting a Bathtub Remodel from Bytown Better Bathtubs & Showers

If your old tub is looking worse-for-wear with nasty stains, chips, cracks and other signs of deterioration, it's not functioning well anymore, or it's just not the right bathtub to meet the unique needs of your family, you may be thinking of just limping along with it for another few years. It's just a bathtub—how much difference can it really make? 

Well, once they experience the advantages of an expert bathtub remodel, Ottawa homeowners tend to realize it makes a very big difference to the comfort, appeal and preservation of their home. Here are some of the biggest benefits of bathtub remodelling done by the trusted team at Bytown Better Bathtubs & Showers.

Greater Comfort

As we mentioned above, bathtubs aren't just utilitarian fixtures that exist for bathing and nothing else. They should be zones of relaxation and rejuvenation where you can enjoy a luxurious, spa-like soaking experience. But if your tub is covered in stains that don't come off no matter how hard you scrub, crusty hard water deposits, and signs of damage such as surface enamel wearing away, it's not relaxing or comfortable—and it's certainly not luxurious. In fact, it can feel more dry sandpaper than a welcoming environment to unwind in hot water. If you want to enjoy your baths in comfort again, the solution is to call our professional team for a bathtub remodel. Ottawa homeowners often tell us that the improvement in their comfort while bathing more than makes the entire project worth it.

Better Suited to Your Needs

Not all bathtubs are created equal. They all offer basically the same function, but some types of tubs are a much better match for your household's unique needs than others are. If your current tub is not the right size or shape for you, or doesn't include features and amenities that you'd really like to have, that's a clear sign that you should consider a bathtub remodel. Ottawa families may want to consider options for tubs with luxury features such as whirlpool jets, or safety features for loved ones with limited mobility such as grab bars and traction applications. Whatever it is about your current bathtub that just isn't hitting the spot, we can take care of bathtub remodelling for a bathtub replacement with all the bells and whistles you've been dreaming of.

More Appealing

Are you tired of using an ugly, outdated bathroom that looks like it hasn't been renovated since 1990—or actually hasn't been renovated since 1990? It can be discouraging when you really need a full bathroom remodel when that's not financially feasible for your family right now, budget-wise. We'll let you in on a little secret: you don't actually have to rip everything out of the room down to the wall studs and floor joists and build it from scratch to make a change in how the room looks, functions and feels. 

Bathtub remodelling is a cost effective way to get a bathroom refresh that can actually transform how you feel about the space and give you the change you've been craving. The bathtub is probably the single biggest item in a relatively small room, so a bathtub replacement with a new tub that boasts a high-end appearance, a unique design and clean lines will go a long way toward altering the look of the entire room.

Done In a Single Day

Some people are reluctant to even consider bathtub remodelling because they don't want to deal with the expense of a time-consuming hassle that takes days—or even weeks—to complete. There's no need to worry about that when you call our team of experts for a bathtub remodel. Ottawa residents can save time, money and stress by calling us because we'll get the entire bathtub replacement project taken care of in a single day. That means you don't have to incur the extra expenses of relocating to a hotel for multiple nights, and you don't have to lose income by booking multiple days off of work while your bathroom project is underway.

Avoid Serious Problems

A bathtub that has suffered damage such as chips and cracks or slowly deteriorated over the years isn't just an unpleasant eyesore. It's also a sign that your fixture has reached the end of its lifespan and is in serious need of a bathtub remodel. Ottawa homeowners who ignore those signs and continue using a bathtub that is well past its prime may soon find themselves dealing with much bigger problems like extensive water damage.

Any area of your tub that is compromised, even if it doesn't look that serious, could potentially be leaking water underneath the fixture. Your floor joists, subfloor and much of the other components that form the "rough" construction of your house to hold the entire building up are made from timber. Wood that has an elevated moisture content because it is constantly exposed to water is highly vulnerable to rotting, which will cause it to weaken and crumble apart. Needless to say, that could be disastrous to the structural stability of your house. Excess moisture also encourages the growth of mold and mildew, which can compromise your indoor air quality and pose a risk to the health of your family.

  • When considering a bathtub remodel, Ottawa homeowners often want to know if the condition of their existing tub warrants a bathtub replacement. Here are some clear warning signs that indicate it's time to say out with the old, and in with the new:

    • Leaks: Leaking can cause major damage, so it needs to be stopped right away. The most common areas for leaks are around the connection between the fixture and the drain pipe, or along the edges of the basement where caulk has deteriorated over time or was installed incorrectly.

    • Cracks and Chips: Cracks are obviously a bad sign, but even chips are a strong indication that the fixture has reached the end of its service life and needs to be retired, because the deterioration will only accelerate from there.

    • Stains: When a new bathtub gets dirty, it can normally be cleaned and restored to its regular color pretty easily. But over time, the surface protectant wears away and stains take hold that simply can't be budged, no matter how much elbow grease you apply. They lower the tone of the whole room and make sitting in the tub to bathe yourself a very unappealing prospect.

    • Doesn't Meet Your Needs: If your current bathtub doesn't meet the needs of your family or suit the way you like to carry out your daily grooming routine, it's definitely time for bathtub remodelling.

    • Unattractive: Don't like your tub style or color? If the largest fixture in your bathroom doesn't look right, it throws the whole room off and that's reason enough for bathtub replacement.

  • For a bathtub remodel, Ottawa homeowners can choose one of two possible approaches: bathtub liners or rip and replace. Installing liners involves applying a flimsy layer over top of your existing bathtub without demolition. That can change the color and get rid of appearance issues like stains, but it comes with some serious problems—liners are susceptible to moisture penetration and leaks, and the process of lining does not expose existing water damage so it can be corrected.

    Rip and replace, on the other hand, involves removing your existing tub entirely and installing a brand-new bathtub replacement. This is the approach we take at Bytown Better Bathtubs & Showers. While it's a more complex process that requires skilled, experienced installers, the high-quality results really speak for themselves.

  • From standard bathtubs to oval-shaped, freestanding bathtubs, there are quite a few choices available for type of materials when you're looking for the right fit for your bathtub remodel. Ottawa homeowners can select from options such as fiberglass tubs, an enameled steel tub, basic acrylic, copper and more. There's also a number of options available for the tub surround, such as porcelain or ceramic tile.

    If you're not sure what will work best for your room and the space your old tub will leave behind, give us a call to chat with our knowledgeable staff about your options. We will custom-build a brand-new bathtub replacement from scratch with premium materials, that suits your home and household perfectly.

  • When you are planning to put your house up for sale on the real estate market, it can pay off to consider a bathtub remodel. Ottawa has plenty of prospective home buyers, and most of them prioritize houses with clean, modern bathrooms. You can get a solid return on investment when you sell, but bathtub remodelling also helps convince potential buyers so you can make a quick sale and avoid a long, drawn-out selling period.
