Imagine for a second that you have guests in your home. They stop by for a visit, and shortly before it's time to leave, they ask the question...
May I use the bathroom?
Do you cringe at the thought of your outdated bathroom? Do you react by muttering a quick apology for its appearance, blaming it on not having time to clean it lately or stating that you've been meaning to fix that leaky faucet? Maybe it's time to call in the professionals.
A bathroom that's desperately in need of a remodel isn't a matter of appearances alone. If you're concerned about the resale value of your home, that shower that uses way too much water, or features or fixtures that are constantly in need of repair, Re-Bath of Arkansas is here to help.
Here are several obvious signs that it's time to consider bathroom remodeling, saving you frustration and money in the long run.
High Water Bill
Has that water bill been rising lately? Your bathroom might be to blame. For example, toilet technology has really come a long way over the last decade. If yours is celebrating its tenth birthday (or is close to it), it's probably using more water than it actually needs. The same goes for outdated, inefficient showers that pour down gallons upon gallons of water when only a few are needed, without sacrificing water pressure or quality.
Or maybe you don't even have a shower in your home at all, and you're constantly running tubs full of water each day. If you're interested in a beautiful new walk-in shower or tub to shower conversion, Re-Bath of Arkansas has proudly provided Arkansas with durable replacements for over ten years. Don't just settle for a cheap liner or bathtub refinishing - you want something that will stand the test of time.
Mold, Mildew, Or Water Damage
There are various ways to prevent or remove mold, but the real problems often lies underneath. You might be able to treat or clean evidence of mold, mildew, or water damage on a surface level, but only a professional will be able to dig a little deeper and pinpoint underlying issues. If mold or other concerns never seem to really go away, it might be time to replace those leaking fixtures, install new flooring, or invest in a new tub or shower.
Cracks And Chips
They start out as an eyesore, but simple cracks and chips in your sink, tub, counter, or tile can become a real problem. They can eventually crack or break further, resulting in an injury. They can also invite water into places where water shouldn't be, causing staining or mold.
Remember the pink bathtub? You might have one right down the hallway. Decades ago, brightly colored or pastel bathrooms were all the rage. Fast forward to 2016, and these extreme colors can drastically affect your resale value. If you're planning on selling your home or simply want an update due to personal preference, it might be time to design your own bathroom with a neutral color scheme, such as white, cream, beige, or taupe.
Carpet in the bathroom can work, but most people find it unappealing and unhygenic. You can't truly clean it, and mildew can accumulate deep into the fibers. If you've got a smell in the bathroom that just doesn't ever seem to really go away, it might be your carpeted floors.
If you've managed to check several of these signs off the list, it's time for a remodel. Contact Re-Bath of Arkansas today for an absolutely free in-home estimate! Need some inspiration before you get started? Click here to download our Bathroom Ideas Book now.
