Our bathroom remodeling team at TightSeal Exteriors & Baths finished this bathtub replacement 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. An unsightly black substance could 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.

Brookfield Bathtub Replacement – Before
- Bathtub is yellowing, showing discoloration
The old bathtub looks old and outdated.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.
- Very little storage space in this bathtub
In this bathtub there is very little storage space. We see this often in older 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.
- Bath liner was placed in bathtub to prevent slips and falls
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.
