Question DetailsAsked on 3/8/2016

Are there any providers out there that could remove a fiberglass bathtub and replace with a new bathtub?

We do not need to demo the entire bathroom, just want to remove old fiberglass bathtub and replace with a new soaker bathtub. We would also need to re-tile up the wall for the shower.

Some Bathtub Refinishing companies do this - but Remodeling - Kitchen and Bathroom would be the normal contractor category in Search the List for this type work.
Note it is VERY rare that you can just remove the tub and put a new one in - almost always the bottom of the wall tile has to be replaced in the process because the tub is several inches longer than the distance between the tile walls. Solid surrounds typically have to be replaced in entirety when swapping out a tub. You can see previous similar scope questions with answers in the Home > Remodeling - Bathroom link in Browse Projects, at lower left - with some ballpark cost ideas too. Certainly talking probably $2-4000 plus, not some small amount, for your scope.
