Don’t cover it up: The importance of a proper bathroom remodel
It’s a room in your home you go to every day and one that is constantly being used by guests–your bathroom. The bathroom is one of the highest trafficked rooms in your home and it comes to no surprise that it is also one of the most valuable in terms of home resale.
Every year homeowner’s around the world look to give their bathrooms a face lift. Many factors go into deciding a bathroom remodel: price, style, selections, not to mention the time it will take to complete. For most having their bathroom torn apart and unusable for an extended period of time is not an appealing thought.
This is where the speed factor comes into play. Most have probably seen the ads for lightning fast 1 or 2 day remodels, it looks great, going to work in the morning and then coming home to an updated bathroom, what could be better? But are these types of remodels too good to be true? Further investigation will pull back the curtain to reveal that these quick turnaround remodels might simply just be covering up the existing bathroom with clean, shiny and fresh looking surfaces.
These types of liners can be a breeding ground for mildew, mold and water damage. A liner will simply lock in any existing moisture issues causing poor indoor air quality and destroying the integrity of the tub and the walls joined to it. Other problems like water getting in through the seals, drains not properly connected through the liner to the plumbing line, are also common. The worst part about this is it isn’t usually covered under warranty since it isn’t an installation issue.
These are the keys to ensuring your remodel is on the right path. Ignoring them will only increase the chances that something will go wrong from the start or further down the road. That’s why it’s important to pick a GMC Granite and Home improvement that will execute these essentials
Below is an illustration of why bathroom cover up remodels may not be the best option and actually could cause more problems in the long run. For example, instead of pulling out the tub and replacing it with a new one, many companies offer acrylic liners that just fit over the existing tub. This definitely seems like a quick and painless solution but any problems the bath tub may have had before, has just been covered up.
