Over time, mobile home components such as your bathtub can wear out and need a replacement. However, you may miss the signs of an imminent need for replacement, which could cause further problems. Below are a few indications you might need to do some bathroom remodeling and replace your vinyl tub. 

When Should You Replace a Vinyl Tub?

1. Stains & Discoloration

When the protective finish wears off of your vinyl, the material becomes porous, making stains and mold damage more likely. Dirt, bacteria, and fungus can become commonplace in your tub, creating smells and stains that are challenging to clean. If you notice this, consider doing bathroom remodeling and updating your bathing area. 

2. Frequent Leaks

If you spot cracks or suspect your tub is leaking, ask a bathroom remodeling professional to inspect your bath for damage and recommend a solution. While you can repair some cracks, others may need a new tub.

3. Uncomfortable or Poorly Placed 

Styles change over time, which is why the tub that may have worked well 20 years ago may be far too small today. If yours is too small, shallow, or difficult to use, consider bathroom remodeling. By upgrading your bath, you can unwind and relax at the end of the day.
