If your bathroom looks like a relic from the 1970’s, allow our team at NU Tub to bring you into the modern era. Bathtub liners and bathtub refinishing are easy, affordable options that can bring your bathroom up to date in just one day. Wondering which option is right for you? Read on.

Bathtub Refinishing

Bathtub Refinishing

Our team of professionals have refinished countless tubs, showers, and sinks since our opening in 1989. The process involves removing the old caulking and thoroughly cleaning the tub. We then lightly etch the surface, using acid on porcelain and hand-sanding fiberglass tub/showers. Our technicians then apply a primer followed by three coats of our modified urethane coating. This process takes anywhere from five to eight hours.

Bathtub Liners

Alternatively, bathtub liners essentially cover up your existing tub or shower. Our technicians will measure your existing unit and install a high-gloss acrylic system on top of your existing tub, shower, or wall. Bathtub liners come in a variety of colors, and are easily installed and ready for use in the same day.

How Do They Look?

Bathtub liners and bathtub refinishing both create a high gloss, flawless finish. To the untrained eye, a refinished tub will look like a brand new unit. Refinished tubs also preserve the shape and contours of your original unit. Bathtub liners, on the other hand, slightly alter the shape of your tub and create a completely new look and surface. Either way, both are beautiful and look like new.


A refinished bathtub, if properly cleaned and cared for, can last for 10 to 20 years before showing signs of wear and tear. Bathtub liners are also designed to last for decades. With the regular use of a non-abrasive cleaner, both refinished tubs and bathtub liners are designed with longevity in mind.
