Is bathtub resurfacing right for me?

When choosing the best method for updating your bathroom there are many things to consider.  Below are the most commonly asked questions regarding bathtub resurfacing jobs.  But feel free to call us and speak with one of our knowledgeable estimators to figure out how you can benefit from our skill and expertise.

Bathtub resurfacing typically takes a few hours to a full day, depending on the size and number of items.  Then you need to wait 24 hours for it to cure, in most cases.

Bathtub replacement costs thousands of dollars, bathtub resurfacing costs only a few hundred.

The normal wear rate is comparable to an original tub.  With proper care bathtub resurfacing can last 10-15 years or more.

The surface is as durable as an original tub.  The coating is designed to resist scratches.  But proper care is necessary to ensure full life of the coating.

Yes.  We recommend a 50/50 mixture of White Vinegar and water, with a little added dish soap.  Mix in a spray bottle.  Spray onto the surface and let set for 3 minutes.  Wipe clean with a wet wash cloth.  If you wish to use store bought products please refer to the Care and Maintenance document for approved cleaners.

No. Once the coating has cured most people cannot tell the difference between a regular tub and a refinished one.

We do use ventilation fans to exhaust air from the bathroom to outside the home.  However it is recommended for any young children, pregnant women or people with respiratory conditions to not be present during the time of refinishing and in some cases for the duration of the curing time.  When in doubt, play it safe.

Yes. Won’t it be nice not to see them anymore?

We strive to protect our environment as much as possible.  Also many of the products we use are Low VOC to ensure as little impact as possible.

We also refinish kitchen countertops, claw foot tubs, ceramic tile, cultured marble items, vanity tops, Fiberglass items, Showers and shower pans, acrylic items and plastic tubs.

In most cases we recommend the basics of White, Biscuit and Almond/Bone.  However other custom colors are available by special order.  Consult one of our estimators for more details.

“You don’t park a brand new car in a garage that is being built.”  We always recommend to do other plumbing or remodeling work first. This is to limit the chances of extra repair charges.  The only thing we recommend to do after the bathtub resurfacing is installation of glass shower doors.

With the highest quality materials 10 to 15 years.

Yes.

Our Happy Customers Say

“When another company told me that my damaged tub could not be repaired, I called Bathtub Refinishing. Not only did they fix the tub, but they also refinished it.  Now it is perfect.  The workman was very nice and the job was excellent.  Thanks!

M. Weskamp

“Our tub was refinished to like-new appearance in just a few hours.  I heartily recommend Bathtub Refinishing as an alternative to (expensive) fixture replacement.”

D. Chasse

“On time,efficient, nice to deal with.  Job turned out as expected.”

D. Spurling

All I can say is Wow!  Two days ago I had a dingy, yellowed, scuffed and stained shower enclosure with grimy, dated sliding glass doors.  Today that shower has a bright, gleaming new resurface and beautiful new frameless glass doors…all for a very affordable price.  The entire shower looks modern and updated and even makes the smallish bathroom seem bigger than it is.

The workers were very professional and took time to explain every step of the process.  The resurfacing went smoothly and faster than I expected, and so did the door installation.

From our first conversation, Adam and Tom helpfully answered all my questions and explained all the options in detail.  They clearly know the meaning of customer service and went the extra mile to make sure all my concerns were addressed.

Without reservation, I heartliy recommend bathtub refinishing  to anyone who’s looking for a cost-effective, professional path to a modern, updated resurface.
