Remodel Your Bathtub

How much would you pay a pro to remodel your bathtub?

Basic projects with a fiberglass surround cost $2000-$3000.

Tiling the surround makes the price closer to $5000.

Recently I posted a question in our Home Repair Tutor Facebook Group and most people said they’d DIY this project.

Here’s the deal, I’m going to make a video series and show you how to remodel a bathtub with tile.

You’re going to see it unfold.

And I’m getting a professional bathroom remodeler to help me!

This will be AWESOME KEEP READING
