  • Leaks

Leaks can be a big problem and a major sign that you might need to replace your bathtub if not checked for it can ruin the rest of the bathroom and create more water damage. Signs to find leakage can be a good amount of water near the base of your tub.

  • Stains

A lot of the time when looking to replace a bathtub or for shower replacements it can be due to stains. These are some of the easier problems to spot because when bathrooms are usually in lighter colors stains can stand out. When it comes to this, a shower replacement may be time because it can be a hassle constantly trying to remove stains so it would be easier to replace the whole model and save time.

Consider a walk-in shower

If you are remodeling a small washroom and need something that better suits your bathroom size, going from a tub to a shower may be more convenient for you. Showers typically take up less space and may give you the look you want to match your bathroom size.
