Walk-In Bathtubs: Acrylic vs. Fiberglass


Choosing between all the different varieties of walk-in bathtubs can be a difficult task. There are a few things that you can keep an eye out for to ensure that you get the best possible walk-in bathtub. Obviously you will want to pay attention to the price but the first thing you should pay attention to other than that is the material. You need a material that will hold up and stand the test of time.

Fiberglass is a good way to go as it is made in mass quantities so you can probably find it for a good price. It also holds up pretty well so you will get the most out of your walk-in bathtub. It also comes in quite a few different colors so you will never get stuck with the same dull color that you would when choosing other tub materials. One other material that should be taken into consideration is acrylic. Although it is usually heavier than fiberglass, it can be found for the same prices in most cases.

Just like fiberglass, it can be found in a variety of colors and because of its weight, it will hold together over time. If you decide to go with an acrylic walk-in bathtub, be sure to get assistance when installing it as it's quite heavy and may require some serious manpower to get everything in place. The same can be recommended for fiberglass but it won't cause nearly as many problems. You should also take into consideration where you will be purchasing the tub. Try to find a walk-in bathtub that has a lifetime warranty so if something does happen, you won't be out of luck. Keep those few things in mind and you'll find yourself with the best possible walk-in bathtub that money can buy. They are sure to bring you years of comfort and will create more space in any bathroom that you put them in. Always choose a reputable dealer and once again, keep an eye out for that warranty. Good luck and enjoy your walk-in bathtub!
