The Cost to Replace a Bathtub
Replacing a bathtub is one of the top priorities for a bathroom remodel. The average cost to replace a bathtub is between $1,435-$7,246. The actual replacement cost is impacted by the type of new bathtub selected, if plumbing adjustments are required, and labor costs. Other factors that effect the cost of a bathtub replacement include removing and disposing of the old tub and other materials, construction cost for preparing the area for a new bathtub, new faucets and fixtures, additional plumbing and materials, and required permits. As part of the bathtub replacement and overall bathroom remodeling project, there are several options to consider for a replacement, including a shower to tub conversion, bath fitter (acrylic liner), general purpose tub, jet or whirlpool tub, soaking tub, walk-in tub, freestanding tub, clawfoot tub, and airbath tub.
