If you’ve noticed your bath tub is cracked, chipped or even leaky, your first thought may be to go out and buy a new one. Not so fast! There’s no reason to go out and spend thousands of dollars on a new bath tub. Often times, bath tubs in Glendale can be repaired for a much lower price than a complete tub replacement. Here are some common bath tub problems that don’t require replacement, and which can instead be treated with professional repairs:
- Rust in your bath tub: The orange-red rust color that can build up in bath tubs in Glendale is unsightly, and most people think it’s kind of disgusting. Since rust is caused by dissolved iron in tap water, it’s unavoidable if you don’t take proper care of your bath tub. We recommend wiping your bath tub down with a towel after each use to get rid of any iron residue that is left sitting in a wet tub. If you neglect to do this, you’re going to have a rusty tub after a while. If you’re sick of having a rusty tub in your bathroom, don’t just go out and buy a new one. Instead, consider repairing it for a much lower price. Our professionals can clean your tub and get out any rust stain to make it look as good as new.
- Cracks or chips in your bath tub: Whether you have a fiberglass or porcelain bath tub, it runs the risk of chipping or cracking over time. But fear not—most cracks can be repaired, no matter how bad they seem. With the proper equipment, our professionals can fix your bath tub in a matter of hours and also ensure that the repaired area blends in seamlessly with the original color of the bath tub. It’s pertinent to call us as soon as you notice any crack or chip in your bath tub. Cracks and chips will only get worse as time goes on, and will also run the risk of developing mold inside the crack. We pride ourselves on our ability to repair cracked fiberglass bath tubs, but we also have decades of experience repairing porcelain bath tubs, too.
- Leaky bath tubs: Leaks can happen in bath tubs for a variety of reasons. From small cracks to bad plumbing or even old caulking, bath tubs can spring leaks at any time with little to no warning at all. When that happens, you need to call a professional to fix it right away. What may seem like a minor problem at first can quickly turn into a major issue. We’re able to fix and stop any type of leak you could imagine.
Most bath tubs in Glendale can be repaired for a few hundred dollars. Compare that to the cost of a new tub and give A-1 Porcelain & Fiberglass Service LLC a call today.
