Cracked Bathtub Floor Repair
Do you have a CRACKED TUB or SHOWER FLOOR?
Is your fiberglass or acrylic or plastic bathtub or shower floor beginning to break, crack or leak? If so, this is a serious problem that cannot be ignored. Water will collect beneath your bathtub or shower, causing potential mold along with a series of other detrimental issues. The longer you wait, the worse the problem becomes.
Cracked Bathtub and Shower Floor BEFORE repair and refinishing
Typically, replacement was the only option until now. The Surface Doctors can apply our fortified hardening resins and fillers to seal a crack or hole and make it water tight! The repair is strong, permanent and professional. This is not a short term answer. It permanently corrects the problem!
Is The Floor of Your Bathtub or Shower Soft or Spongy?
“Softness” or “sponginess” can be a contributing factor to cracks or holes in a bathtub or shower floor.
When tubs and showers are originally installed, there is an air space between the subfloor and the bottom of the unit. Mortar, or a fortified expanding foam should be used to fill this void for support. Occasionally, these materials are not used during the original install, or are lacking in some sections. Over time, these affected areas may feel spongy, will eventually crack, and ultimately open up and allow water through.
To combat spongy tub or shower floors from becoming a future problem, we inject a high density foam underneath the bathtub floor called a froth pak. The froth pak fills the void between the underside of your tub and the subfloor where it sits. This method makes the floor extremely solid, and eliminates the possibility of movement or flex that caused the crack in the first place. We carefully assess the damage to your fixture and make all necessary repairs to make sure it won’t crack again.

Bathtub Chip Repair
There are a few common causes of bathtubs chips or cracks, such as:
- Cheap or flexible bathtub material
- Regular wear and tear
- Heavy objects
- Heavy cleaners
While a small chip or ding in your bathtub may seem like no big deal, small problems won’t stay small for long.
Dings, chips, and cracks in your bathtub will allow water and moisture to seep inside your bathtub, weakening its integrity over time. Eventually, your bathtub will crack in half and become completely unusable. Water leaks can also cause severe water damage to other structures in your bathroom, or other problems with your property such as mold growth.
If not addressed, bathtub chips or cracks will develop into more significant and more costly cracks – so don’t wait around. Contact us to book an inspection today.
