Acrylic Beauty with Custom Bathroom Remodeling

Why Acrylics Dominate the Bathroom Remodeling Industry

When it comes time to remodel your bathroom, there are several options available. One of the most prevalent you'll hear of is acrylic. This type of material has practically become the standard for bathroom remodeling products. At America's Window, we are advocates of using acrylics because we believe that they offer the most quality for the best price. Because we're not here to gouge you with high costs or fail you with low-quality, we stand by our bathroom acrylics from BathWraps®. However, we also believe in providing our clients with the information they need to make a well-informed decision. That's why we're offering a comparison of the top materials used to manufacture bathtubs.

Material Options for Baths & Showers:

  • Fiberglass: This material is low in weight and moldable. Though is often found to be the least expensive, it is also the least durable. Often prone to scratches and other common wear and tear issues, the tubs typically last around 10-12 years.

  • Porcelain-Enameled Steel: Fairly inexpensive, this type is made using a thin sheet of steel finished with a layer of porcelain enamel. Though they are durable, they're also quite a bit heavier than acrylic. They are also susceptible to rusting and chipping, plus, the ability to customize the shape is rather limited.

  • Cast Iron: Viewed as the most durable of bathtub materials, cast iron will last as a lifetime. Additionally, their heat retention is higher, but the tub must reach a warm temperature first by drawing heat from the water. Unfortunately, they are considerably heavier than other tubs, so your placement options are primarily limited to ground level floors. They are also the most expensive of these four materials with increased expense for materials and extra labor.

  • Acrylic: This has become the most used option due to the availability of the materials, affordability, quality, and customizable shaping. Another advantage this material presents is its durability. Additionally, acrylics from America's Window are non-porous and equipped with Silver-Shield™ to prevent infestations from mold, mildew, and other microbes. Also, their lightweight makes installation easier and quicker.
