Your bathroom goes through a lot of different temperature and moisture changes throughout the day. When you turn on your bathtub or shower, the humidity and temperature in the room can rise dramatically. You need a bathroom that is mostly made of waterproof materials that provide you with the security and knowledge that they will last a long time and also look good. The two main options are bathtub and shower liners, or a complete remodel of the bathroom. Each option has advantages and disadvantages. The choice of baths depends on your needs and your preferences.
A bathtub and/or shower liner is a simple apparatus in which a professional designs a cover that fits the size and shape of your bathtub exactly. When it is ready, the professional will then simply place the liner over your existing bathtub and shower. The liner will be affixed in place with a strong adhesive. By using this option, you will have a brand new bathroom in no time at all. The simplicity and the affordability are reasons that liners are some of the most common choices for baths in Pittsburgh.
You can contact us if you have questions about different types of liners. Usually, they are made from waterproof acrylic. The biggest drawback of a liner is that you are somewhat limited in your design options.
If you want the most versatility, you need to choose a custom build for your baths. A custom build involves professionals actually designing and installing new elements of your bath, which could mean new bathtubs, sinks, faucets, and more. If you choose this route, you can have faux stone, marble, and granite installed. You can have authentic marble and granite if you prefer those textures. There are plenty more options, but the price will be higher.
The overall price is the major drawback of a complete custom build, for you’ll have to pay a little bit more for custom choices.
