Tub Liner Installation Cost


By ProMatcher Staff



Cost of a New Bathtub Liner

The average cost of installing a basic tub liner is about $1,169.25. However, the cost may be as high as $1,310 or as low as $1,028, depending on your location. Additionally, if you want to install a tub liner with a shower surround, costs can be significantly higher. Before hiring a contractor, review the checklist below to get a better understanding of how much contractors typically charge.

1. Your location.

Where you live often has an impact on the cost of materials and labor. In Nashville, the average cost of tub liner installation is less than $1,000 (below the national average). The average cost in Brooklyn, NY of a basic tub liner is close to $1600.

2. Travel time required.

Is there a local company that specializes in tub liners? If not, you may need to hire a company from further away. Ask about any trip charges or fuel surcharges before signing any contract. These fees may have a significant impact on the cost of installation.

3. Material options.

Tub liners can are most commonly made of plastic (PVC) or acrylic. Plastic liners tend to be more affordable, but acrylic liners are typically more popular due to their increased durability.

4. Sizing the liner.

The contractor will come to your home in order to measure the exact dimensions of your tub. If you have an alcove tub or a tub-shower combo, you may choose to install a liner that also covers the wall surround. This will increase the cost of your project. adjacent walls. Keep in mind that installing a full shower liner will cost more than just the basic tub liner. Depending on the size and configuration of your tub, the contractor will order a prefabricated liner or have one custom made for your project.

5. Installation service.

Once the liner has been fabricated, the contractor will return to your home to install it. The tub liner should fit snugly over your existing tub to prevent any water from leaking underneath it. The cost estimate should include all surface preparation, grouting, and caulking. The installation from start to finish should not take longer than one day.

6. Bathroom fixtures and accessories.

Tub liner installation does not typically include the cost of replacing any shower heads, valves, drains, or faucets. Replacing any bathroom fixtures will increase the cost of the project (especially if it requires the services of a plumbing contractor).

7. Bathroom remodeling.

Is the rest of the bathroom in good shape? If you are planning on remodeling an entire bathroom, it might make sense to hire a bathroom designer or a bathroom remodeling contractor for your project. The tub liner installer may not be able to help you with other projects, such as tile installation, sink replacement, or relocating the tub.

8. Carefully compare multiple quotes.

We always recommend getting more than one estimate for any home project. When you sit down to compare them, use this checklist to ensure that each important item is included in the contractor’s cost estimate. It’s important to get all of the details in writing upfront in order to avoid surprise fees later on.
