The advantages of refinishing vs. replacement do not merely include saving time and money, it also saves resources and energy. Making the smart decision to resurface your tub rather than replace means there's one less bathtub being thrown out into the landfill. This helps significantly to reduce the carbon footprint and ensures you're doing your part to help the environment!
Did you know that more materials go to landfills during a remodeling project than an entire new construction project? The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) estimates that close to 32 million tons of waste per year are sent to landfills from home remodeling projects. The garbage coming from construction and demolition debris accounting for 20% of all landfill waste, with 43% of that contributed from residential construction and renovation projects.
With all the concerns about global warming, overfull landfills, conservation and greenhouse gases, we believe that refinishing makes a substantial contribution in reducing the future impact on our environment.
