Tub and Shower Liner Costs

Tub and shower liners cost $5,074 on average, with a typical range between $2,147 and $8,000. Tubs in a standard size and shape are $800 to $1,000 with installation, compared to $1,300 to $3,000 for a shower. Customization and size are the biggest price factors, with a tub-shower combo running $3,000 to $6,500.

If your shower or bathtub is older, then it might show signs of discoloration. Even if it just looks old or boring, you may want to update it. Since installing a new one can be an expensive project, lining yours may be an affordable alternative. Consider these cost factors to help you make a choice.

Bathtub Liners Cost

Bathtub liners cost $300 to $1,000. Larger sizes or unusual shapes typically run the most. You can find options in a ton of different colors or styles to match your bathroom's current style, or something completely new if you're redecorating.

Shower Liner Cost

A shower liner costs $800 to $1,500. You’ll pay the most for customization, like shelves or bars for soap. If you need one for a tub-shower combo, you can expect the price to be $1,000 to $2,000 or more.

Liner Installation Cost

Liner installation costs $500 to $1,500 for most projects. Pros usually set the rate on the number of hours they think the job will take. You’ll pay less for a tub or small shower than a three-piece tub-shower combo.

Shower or Bathtub Relining Cost Factors

With a range of $2,000 to $6,500, several cost factors affect your total estimate:

  • Size:

    Bigger ones require more material and time to install.

  • Access:

    Small, tight showers may take more time.

  • Existing Condition:

    If you need plumbing repairs, you’ll have to do that first.

  • Customization:

    Complicated designs, like a walk-in tub, increase the price.

If you have an older bathtub or shower, or yours doesn’t work like it should, it’s wise to consult a professional plumber first. Liners don’t fix faulty pipes or faucets, so you’ll want to take care of any problems before you schedule installation.

DIY Liner Installation vs. Hire a Pro

If you want an acrylic liner, you’ll need to hire shower installers near you. Installing a PVC one can be a DIY job, but pros typically have access to better materials and can ensure correct placement. Before you choose, be sure to schedule an in-person consultation and get at least three quotes.

FAQs

How do you install a bathtub liner?

Installing a bathtub liner involves cutting or molding acrylic or PVC to the right size. Pros use heat to attach it seamlessly to your existing one.

Can you customize a bath liner?

You can customize your bath liner to suit a variety of sizes and shapes, but you’ll usually have a limited selection of colors and styles.

Can you refinish a bath liner?

Refinishing a bath liner depends on the material and its thickness. Ask a professional installer if they offer the service.
