Odessa, TX — A recent survey of rubber ducks shows an unprecedented increase in the popularity of bathtub liners. According to interviews, rubber ducks overwhelmingly agree that Re-Bath bathtubs are the best alternative to old, ugly bathtubs. Re-Bath bathtubs are brand new acrylic bathtubs custom-manufactured to fit over old bathtubs.

The rubber ducks that participated in the survey cited a wide range of reasons for preferring Re-Bath Bathtubs:

The installation is quick and clean — Each bathtub is professionally installed in three to four hours and is ready for same-day use. No need for the rubber ducks to be shut away in a closet for three days as is necessary during a bathtub tear-out and replacement.

Re-Bath Bathtubs fit perfectly over the old bathtub — Re-Bath, LLC, the nation’s largest one-day bath remodeler, has more than 850 bathtub molds. They can match any pressed steel or cast iron bathtub manufactured in the past 80 years.

Bathtubs are very affordable — there is no need for expensive bathtub tear-out and replacement. The low cost allows homeowners to upgrade the rest of the bathroom even with a limited budget.

The bathwater stays warmer longer — Most rubber ducks like to linger in the bathtub. Re-Bath bathtubs allow them to stay in longer thanks to the insulating properties of acrylic.

Re-Bath bathtubs are always beautiful — Rubber ducks are by nature very proud and insist on clean surroundings, which is why they like Re-Bath. The non-porous, acrylic surface simply wipes clean — that means no bathtub rings or hard-water stains. It was also pointed out that Re-Bath bathtubs do not dent, chip, rust or peel.

Many rubber ducks suggest acrylic wall-surrounds as the perfect complement to the new bathtub. They stated that wall-surrounds are custom-manufactured to fit perfectly over the out-of-date tile walls and are very easy to keep clean.

Do you have any rubber ducks at your house? Maybe the reason you haven’t seen yours in awhile is that he’s embarrassed to be seen in an ugly, water-stained bathtub such as the one in your home.

As the rubber ducks so astutely pointed out in the survey, this problem can be remedied in short order. Just call your friends at Re-Bath of West Texas at American Home Improvement. They will help you decide on the right colors and designs; then, when the liners come in from Re-Bath, they’ll do the installation in one day.
