If you want to save money then you do it yourself. Fix the ledger board and have the plumber put it back and attach the plumbing fixtures and pipes.

If the tub must be pulled out --then why even try to save it---a new Kohler villager tub is about $300

The deep Mendota about $480---Re-glazing has to cost that much--and doesn't hold up long or look as nice as a new tub--Is the old tub something special?--Mike--
