Our bathroom remodeling team at TightSeal Exteriors & Baths finished this bathroom replacement project in Brookfield, Wisconsin. This bathtub was reportedly over 45 years old and needed to be replaced. The old bathtub showed obvious signs of mold and mildew in the chalk. This unsightly black substance can be seen in the grout where the wall surround and bathtub meet. This is very common in older bathtubs. One of the most common complaints we hear from homeowners is mold, mildew and discoloration in the grout and chalk.
These homeowners in Brookfield called TightSeal Exteriors & Baths, a local bathroom remodeler to tackle their bathroom remodeling project. Our bathroom remodeling contractors regularly see bathtubs in this condition. The Brookfield homeowner opted for a bathtub replacement for their bathroom remodeling project.
The old bathtub looks old and outdated. There is visible signs of mold and mildew in the caulk lines. This can be seen as dark, grayish black color where the wall surround meets the bathtub. The bathtub is also yellowing and showing discoloration.
In this bathtub there is very little storage space. We commonly see this in older styles bathtubs. There is only a small space to place your soap. There are a lack of shower caddies or storage space for personal hygiene products. Many times homeowners will purchase a makeshift shower caddy that hangs from the shower head. This can be annoying as they are always uneven and unstable. It can also fall off the shower head making showering a nightmare.
A bath liner was also placed in the bathtub to prevent slips and falls. The new bathtub that will be installed during the bathroom remodeling project will have a textured bottom built in to prevent slips. This means the Brookfield homeowner will not have to buy a bathtub liner for their new bathtub. The bathroom remodeling project will be completed in under a day.
