Shower/tub size & shape – Bath Fitter's acrylic tub liners and shower walls are custom-made to fit your current tub and shower. Costs typically increase for larger tubs and showers that require more material.
New tub vs. liner – If the existing tub is too damaged, it may not be suitable for a liner and may require replacement instead, increasing costs. Bath Fitter also offers the option to replace your existing tub with a new one if you'd like to change the style or upgrade to a deep soaking tub.

Shower head & faucet – Bath Fitter offers a line of optional shower heads and faucets. If you prefer to purchase a shower head or faucet elsewhere, you'll face these costs:
Plumbing modifications & repairs – Your bathroom may require plumbing modifications if you are relocating the faucet or converting a tub to a walk-in shower.

How does Bath Fitter work?
Bath Fitter's acrylic tub liners and shower panels are custom molded to fit over your existing tub or tile. The liner gives the look of a new tub without the demolition required for a typical bathtub replacement. Bath Fitter also offers a variety of optional accessories and upgraded features.
