Let’s face it…when you’re looking to start your day off on the right foot is there a more important room in your home than your bathroom? At RIHI, we know that a properly designed and functioning bathroom can be the ideal space to help set your mood and give you the energy you need to tackle the day. And let’s face it, your tub or shower is the centerpiece of your bathroom that needs to deliver high-performance day in and day out.
So how do you tell when it’s time to replace that aging tub or shower? Here are a few tips from the team at RIHI to look for that ensures your tub/shower continues to not only look beautiful but also meets all your performance needs.
Leaky tub or shower
- Look for leaks in your tub or shower that can lead to expensive water damage over time. If you’ve noticed a leak, it’s best to consult a contractor to help prevent future damage.
- Cracks in your tub or shower are not only unsightly, but they can also lead to leaks and cause mold and mildew growth.
Mold and Mildew Growth
- Mold and mildew are not only nasty looking, but they can be hazardous to your health and requires immediate attention. This growth can mean a possible leak, and once again a leak can be a sign of more significant damage
- This is where you need to consider your personal needs. For example, perhaps you’re at a point where a walk-in shower might be easier to enter and exit than your existing tub.
