This is good advice. Not only does it insulate your floors and walls from water damage it can also protect the bathtub as well. You should also caulk the faucet joints around your tub as well so water does not rid to the back of the faucet into your walls.

Sometimes caulking around the bathtub or faucets sound like little things, I paid the price of not paying attention to it. It ended up quite a bit of dry rot around the area. If you see anything water may get to it, fix it before it gets worse. Otherwise it will get worse and cost you a lot of money.

I know very little about refacing. Have you thought of refinishing? I'm recently looking into refinishing my cabinets. According to what I was told, refinishing can save you 50% or more compare to new cabinets with the same quality. They come to take the doors and drawers back to the shop to strip, clean, sand, stain, and put two coats of varnish. Then they come back to do the same on the rest of the cabinets at your home. I'll have them come to give me an estimate when I'm ready to do the remodel.

Hey..!! Nice and quite informative post. Here you have defined a lot about refinishing an existing bath tub which seems to be quite good. But a few days back some one suggested me about tub reglazing. I don't know anything about it. Can you please suggest me something about it? What is the difference between the two and which one is better. Please compare along with the cost measures, if possible. Thank you..!! :)

Bathtub refinishing, reglazing and resurfacing of a tub are all the same. It costs $350-600. The work includes: covering all the surrounding areas, removing old caulking, repairing the small holes, dents or cracks, applying two coats of primer and three top coats, (Make sure you keep the windows open as long as you can to air out the chemicals.) and replacing with new white caulk. it lasts for about three years. If you just want to fix up the bathtub, it's fine to refinish. But if you are remodeling you may want to replace it since you are doing some work in the bathroom. And the new tub is going to last a lot longer.

Bathtub refinishing companies: Miracle Method and Perma-Glaze have national franises. You can also find independent, local companies to compare prices.
