Bathtub refinishing is a process and a technology that has been developed and refined to save you, the homeowner, large amounts of money on kitchen and bath fixture replacement. At the same time, you will get a look comparable to new fixtures. These processes and technologies can be applied to small repairs, such as cigarette burns on countertops or chipping around a drain, to large projects, such as changing the color of an entire tub, shower, and surround or tile wainscoting and backsplashes. Countertops can also be refinished for simple aesthetics, or to repair damage and chipping.

Before and after Refinishing

The process involves several steps, including thorough cleaning and prep of the surface, the application of the new finish, clean up and curing. After refinishing, the surface is easy to care for, requiring only basic spray and wipe cleaning with NON-ABRASIVE cleaners. Following the care instructions, your refinished surface will provide years of satisfaction and durability.

Thinking about refinishing yourself? We strongly suggest you don't. Bathtub Refinishing or Reglazing is not a do-it-yourself project; it involves the use of strong chemicals and materials that are beyond the skill and ability for most homeowners and untrained users. DIY kits are limited in their strength, durability and way they are applied. Most often DIY refinishing jobs end up being redone by a professional with the additional cost of stripping the peeling finish. If these kits actually worked, there’d be no need for professional refinishers.
