Acrylic vs. Fiberglass Bathtubs: Which is Better for You?

Sep 02, 2021

A bathroom with a small vanity area and bathtub with a grab barWhen you’re about to embark on a bathtub replacement project, it’s important to understand all your options before diving in. One of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make is on the material of your new tub. Two of the main options that bathroom remodeling companies offer are acrylic and fiberglass. So, when it comes to this dilemma of choosing acrylic or fiberglass, which is better for you?

In short, acrylic proves superior over fiberglass in terms of performance and maintenance requirements—especially when you get your acrylic bathtub from Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel. Let’s explore why.

What is Fiberglass?

Fiberglass is a reinforced plastic material crafted from layers of interwoven glass strings that have been heated together before being molded, shaped, and coated with a resin gel. Fiberglass bathtubs are popular with many bathroom contractors because fiberglass is a cheaper material that is also considerably more lightweight, making the installation process easier. While there are some benefits, fiberglass tubs are also more susceptible to damage over time and will require more consistent cleaning. If not properly maintained, these tubs will begin to stain and absorb water that can lead to mold and mildew growth.

Why is Acrylic Better?

Acrylic tubs are constructed with sheets of fiberglass-reinforced plastic that are heated and stretched over a mold, allowing these products to be more easily customized than their fiberglass counterparts. Since these tubs are also fairly lightweight, a company like Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel can usually complete the installation in as little as one day. In general, acrylic bathtubs are a better investment over fiberglass because they are:

  • Fully customizable – Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel offers a wide range of colors, patterns, and textures to choose from for our acrylic tubs so that you can create a look that enhances the entire bathroom space.
  • Remarkably durable – Acrylic is resistant to chipping, cracking, fading, and scratching, and Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel’s bathtubs are even protected against the growth of bacteria, mold, and other microbes.
  • Easy to maintain – There’s no need to spend hours scrubbing stubborn grout lines with a new tub from Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel, as the premium nonporous acrylic is exceptionally easy to clean.
  • Cost-effective – Acrylic is still a relatively inexpensive material, and the overall durability makes acrylic tubs a more cost-effective investment over time.

Experience the Benefits of Acrylic With Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel

In terms of style, strength, and so much more, acrylic simply outperforms fiberglass. However, the company that you turn to for your new acrylic tub counts—and you simply won’t get the same high-quality results from other companies that you will with Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel. Our bathtubs are crafted from nonporous acrylic, an innovative material that makes them even easier to maintain than other acrylic tubs on the market. What’s more, you can customize yours down to the last detail with an array of aesthetic and functional features to choose from, including safety and accessibility features like grab bars and built-in seating as well as storage shelving, and more.

Are you still wondering if a Jacuzzi® Bath Remodel acrylic bathtub is the right option for you?
