Refinishing is a process whereby a coating is spray applied to your existing bathtub to restore it to a like-new condition. This is a high gloss, durable coating that is also easy to keep clean.
No. The coating we use is designed specifically for this application. It is able to withstand immersion, temperature fluctuations, expansion and contraction, and is resistant to soaps, dyes, and other chemicals typically associated with bathtub use.
Yes. Our coating is non-porous, which means soap and other stains merely lie on the surface, not underneath. Your refinished bathtub will simply wipe clean- no scrubbing will be necessary.
Typically, refinishing will save you 85% or more over replacement costs. On top of this, there is none of the construction debris associated with replacement.
No. All work is done in your home.
In most cases, we will refinish your bathtub within 2 hours.
Your refinished bathtub requires a 24 hour curing period. The bathtub must not get wet during this time.
We need you to put away any items that may be sitting out on the bathtub or vanity. We also need you to remove your shower curtain and any towels that may be hanging in the bathroom. Also, be sure to have any leaky faucets repaired.
If you want to get rid of your shower doors permanently, we ask that you remove them before we arrive. If you plan on keeping your shower doors, we will remove the doors only, and mask around the track.
In almost all cases, bathtub refinishing should be scheduled last. It is important that we have as little dust and debris as possible in the bathroom when we are working.
In most cases this will not be necessary. Refinishing is spray applied, and we can reach enough of the area behind the vanity, so the bathtub will appear to be completely refinished. However, if the vanity is replaced at a later date, it is advisable to replace it with a similar size vanity. If you replaced the vanity with a pedestal sink for instance, you would notice a bare spot on the skirt of your bathtub. In this case, we would have to come out and respray the bathtub.
Yes. However, the old paint must be stripped off before we can refinish it again. There is an additional charge for us to do this.
Yes. The faucet should be fixed before we arrive. The bathtub must be completely dry from the time we begin spraying, through the 24 hour curing period.
You will be provided with care and maintenance instructions for your refinished bathtub. Basically, you will need to clean your tub with non-abrasive cleaners, make sure your faucet doesn’t drip, and store your soap and shampoo in a shower caddy.
Provided you follow our simple care instructions, your refinished bathtub will give you years of enjoyment.
Yes. We warrant our bathtubs for 5 years. Sinks and countertops come with a 1 year warranty. The warranty does require you follow our simple care instructions.
I have full confidence in your work.
