Fiberglass bathtubs are an attractive, affordable alternative to heavier tub materials like cast iron. One of the downsides of fiberglass, however, is that it is prone to chip and crack over time. If you have a damaged fiberglass bathtub, don’t call the remodeling contractor just yet. Fox Valley Bathtub Refinishing offers fast, affordable fiberglass tub repairs in St. Charles, IL, and the nearby Chicago areas.
Fiberglass Tub Damage
Fiberglass tubs are great, basic bathtubs. They are affordable, lightweight, and easy to install. The downside of fiberglass, though, is that it is more prone to damage than other tub materials. The surface is softer than that of acrylic, cast iron, or stone, making it more likely to scratch and crack. Fiberglass tubs are also susceptible to puncture damage if hit by a blunt object.
