Concrete Laundry Tub Replacement: A small update with a big impact.

If you live in an older home, there’s a good chance you have a concrete tub in your laundry room. But… did you know you don’t have to?

Concrete laundry tubs were once popular due to their robustness and affordability. Their weighty construction made them suitable for heavy-duty tasks, and their affordability made them accessible to many homeowners. However, they’ve come with their fair share of drawbacks. One of the primary reasons homeowners consider replacing them is their sheer bulkiness, which can take up valuable space in the laundry room. Additionally, concrete tubs tend to be more challenging to clean and maintain, due to their porous nature, making them less hygienic and definitely less aesthetically appealing than modern options.

What are the benefits of replacing a concrete laundry tub?

Space Efficiency: Concrete laundry tubs are typically large and bulky, occupying a significant amount of space in your laundry room. Replacing them with a modern tub allows you to maximize your available space and free up room for added storage.

Increased cleanliness: Concrete tubs can be challenging to clean due to their porous nature and rough surfaces, which can trap dirt and stains. Modern laundry tubs are typically made from materials like thermoplastic or stainless steel that are smooth and easy to clean.


Improved Durability: While concrete laundry tubs are known for their sturdiness, they can also be prone to cracking over time.  Modern materials like stainless steel or composite plastics are equally durable and are less prone to cracking or chipping. This means your new tub is likely to have a longer lifespan, saving you money on potential repairs or replacements down the line.


Visual Appeal: Modern laundry tubs are more sleekly designed and the materials they’re made from are brighter, cleaner, and less prone to discoloration or staining. Unlike concrete tubs, they’re designed with both functionality and aesthetics in mind.
