What is Bathtub Resurfacing?

Bathtub resurfacing, AKA: refinishing or reglazing, is  refreshing the surface of an existing bathtub to make it look new again. This involves repairing any chips or cracks, followed by applying a durable, high-quality coating to restore the tub’s original luster. Our process can always be done on all sorts of various tubs, including Clawfoot, porcelain, fiberglass, acrylic, and cast iron. If you’re preparing your home for sale, a resurfaced bathtub can enhance the overall appeal of your bathroom, increasing your home’s market value.

Benefits of Bathtub Resurfacing

  1. Cost-Effective: Replacing a bathtub can be an expensive and time consuming project. Resurfacing typically costs a fraction of what a full replacement would, making it an great option for budget-conscious homeowners.
  2. Time-Saving: Bathtub replacement involves plumbing, demolition, and installation work, which can take several days or even weeks. In contrast, resurfacing usually takes a few hours, and the tub is ready for use within 24-48 hours.
  3. Minimal Disruption: Since resurfacing doesn’t require major construction work, there’s less mess and inconvenience compared to a full replacement. You can enjoy your newly refinished tub without the hassle of extensive home renovation.
  4. Eco-Friendly: By choosing to resurface instead of replace, you reduce waste and the environmental impact with manufacturing and disposing of bathtubs.
  5. Customization Options: Resurfacing offers the opportunity to change the color of your tub, allowing you to update the look of your bathroom without a complete overhaul.

The Bathtub Resurfacing Process

  1. Preparation: Our process begins with a thorough cleaning of the bathtub to remove any soap scum, dirt, or grime. This step ensures that the new coating adheres properly.
  2. Repair: We fill Any chips, cracks, or imperfections and sand smooth to create a flawless surface for the new finish.
  3. Etching: Our special acid etch solution is applied to the tub’s surface to enhance the bond between the old surface and the new coating.
  4. Priming: The primer we use is applied to further ensure adhesion and durability of the topcoat.
  5. Coating Application: We spray 2-3 layers of a high-quality, durable coating onto the tub.
