Rebath vs. fitted bath systems

Posted March 5th, 2012 by Alexander Pokorny

A fitted bath system must be perfectly molded to fit over your old bath, otherwise it will inevitably present a host of problems, not the least of which is the major chance that it won't fit perfect or won't be installed correctly. Often these facelift jobs consist of little more than some glue on the new liner, putting it in the old tub and calking up the seams. Supposing the caulking is done in an attractive manner, it must be perfect. If all moisture isn't removed and sealed out from the old tub, it could be eaten away over the years by mold and rust.

If a fitted bath system is not properly molded to the exact contours of your existing bath, pockets can be left between the old bath surface and the new. These pockets can be havens for mold, pests or in certain cases, rust that will spread to the rest of the tub left in place to support the liner.

Even without the deterioration of the previous tub, the new fitted bath system can warp over time if not bonded to the old tub. This can create pockets and puckers along the floor of your tub, making for an uneven surface which prevents proper drainage allowing for mold and mildew to build, and presents a dangerous floor in your shower.

Even if a fitted bath system is molded and installed perfectly, even if it presents no manufacturing or installation defects and works fine for years, the fact remains that by putting a new tub over the old one, you are reducing the standing room in your shower as well as the lounging room in your bath.
