How much does a Bath Fitter cost?

From what we researched, receiving a quote from the Bath Fitter company, other than having an in-home consultation, is next to possible, even if you were to call them over the phone.  The quotes for a remodel, from what we gathered, will greatly depend on your measurements, style choices, accessories, fixtures and conversion.   To budget, it’s safe to say most quotes for a basic bathtub liner with minimal accessories will cost anywhere from $4,000 to $7,000+, but if you were to add premium accessories and create modifications to your bathroom walls, the costs could then easily double.

With so many factors to consider, we scoured the Internet and included all of the quotes other people received in our table below:

According to one member on this MrLandlord.com forum thread, he said the same thing in regards to no quotes unless you have someone visit your home.  In the end, he did have someone come out and was quoted $7,121 to remove the fiberglass tub and surround with no other renovations.

Bath Fitter overview

The installation steps, as per the official company’s website, includes first removing the faucet, followed by installing the new wall, protecting it, installing the new bathtub, adding any accessories requested and cleaning up the job site.

The company stands behind its product, offering a lifetime warranty.  This warranty guarantees all acrylic as long as no third-party accessories or non-approved cleaners are used.  You can view a Bath Fitter approved cleaners list here.

What are the extra costs?

Aside from a brand new bathtub liner, the company also offers a variety of accessories for an additional price.  These popular accessories include new shelves, soap dishes, faucets, shower rods, grab bars and shower seats.  Their licensed contractors can also add new trim, install new ceilings and/or modify bathroom walls.

Tips to know:

The company does offer a free in-home consultation.  While it may be high pressured in sales, from what we read, this is the only way to receive an exact quote for your situation.

On the official website, the company allows you to create your own bathtub with their interactive tool.  Here, you can either modify an existing bathtub, wall and/or faucet with new accessories, doors and rods.  While the tool doesn’t offer an estimate, it can show you a finalized product based on your preferences.

Since every Bath Fitter franchise is locally owned and operated, check out your local contractor’s reviews to ensure they are established and highly rated.  A good place to check for honest reviews would be Yelp or Google.

Pinterest has more than 50+ Bath Fitter before and after pictures.

How can I save money?

As mentioned, Bath Fitters is simply a brand name, and according to those who have received a quote, they tend to be on the higher end when it comes to quotes.  If at all possible, try your best to look at two to three alternatives because there’s a good chance you will be able to receive a similar product at a cheaper price.

If you do decide to choose Bath Fitters, don’t settle for the first quote given.  According to those who did receive a quote in person, they were able to drop the quote by more than 20 to 30 percent by haggling.

Sometimes, hiring a local handyman may be much cheaper than using a franchise-based company.  Consider using HomeAdvisor.com to receive multiple quotes for your job for free.

Depending on your local location, Bath Fitter coupons and/or specials may be available.  Be sure to ask your local representative if any options are available at the moment.
