Tub Replacement Vs. Bath Liners: Which Should You Choose?

Is your bathtub looking a little less inviting these days? When your bathroom aesthetic needs refreshing, homeowners must choose between updating their bath liner or scheduling a full bathtub replacement. Each solution provides its own set of advantages and disadvantages depending on your specific situation.

Benefits of Bath Liners

Bathtub liners offer a quick and easy solution for covering up minor aesthetic problems in your tub. Bath liner products are uniquely designed to offer the following key benefits:

  • Easy Maintenance: Non-porous, naturally mold- and mildew-resistant surfaces make cleaning and maintenance a breeze.
  • Exceptional Style: Our beautiful, high-gloss acrylic liners are available in a broad range of colors and patterns to perfectly match your personal style.
  • Enhanced Durability: Each liner is carefully crafted to be scratch-, chip-, stain-, and fade-resistant to ensure long-lasting beauty.
  • Fast Installation: Bath liners offer the easiest installation possible, with products able to be installed in just a few hours.
  • Lifetime Warranty: We stand behind our products, offering our customers a lifetime warranty on their bathtub liners.


While bathtub liners offer a great solution for resolving minor cosmetic damage in your tub, they are not ideal for use when more serious plumbing problems exist. For instance, if your bathtub and wet area are very old, there may be underlying issues at play that require the attention of full replacement services.

Benefits of a Thompson Creek Bathtub Replacement

In addition to solving more serious issues with your existing tub, a full bathtub replacement can provide many other advantages, including:

  • Structural Improvement: As aforementioned, a bath liner won’t address any structural issues that may exist beneath the surface. With a full bathtub replacement, any structural damage that’s present will be addressed by your Thompson Creek installation professional.
  • Design Freedom: While a bath liner will provide a fresh surface for your tub, it won’t give you the stylistic change you may need to the design of the bathtub itself. A bathtub replacement will allow you to transform your tub entirely, providing the opportunity to make enhancements to both the form and function of your bathroom.
  • Increased Value: Investing in a bathtub replacement project might be more expensive than a bath liner, but the long-term value you gain as a result is far greater in the end. Especially if you plan on selling your home in the next five years, a bathtub replacement can help increase your home’s value.

By choosing bathtub replacement, you’ll be able to better tailor your bathroom space to your changing needs. With Thompson Creek’s personalized design approach, our team will help develop a custom replacement bathtub solution that brings your unique vision to life.
