About Re-Bath LLC

Re-Bath began in 1978 as American Bathtub Liners, a company that offered bathtub liners to hotels. In 1982, Re-Bath began selling the liners to homeowners through a dealer network. In 1991, the dealership program was converted to a hybrid franchise program. Today, in addition to bathtub liners, Re-Bath franchisees offer acrylic bathtubs, shower bases, shower base liners, wall surround systems, bathtub-to-shower conversions, walk-in bathtubs, vanity cabinets and tops, toilets, shower spas, faucets, mirrors and accessories, as well as natural stone wall systems. (Beginning in 2013, Re-Bath offered multi-unit franchisees the opportunity to consolidate their contiguous territories under a single franchise agreement.)
