Refinishing Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

05.10 - pros and cons of bathtub reglazing

Q: You May Wonder: Why Refinish?

A: It is important to consider all costs when estimating the cost of replacement, including labor and installation costs, removal and replacement costs, time, and mess related to bathroom remodeling. Refinishing is a terrific option to replace because it costs less than 80% and increases the value of your home.

Q: One is unsure of the new finish’s durability.

A: Bathtubs and enclosures should last for roughly ten years with regular maintenance. Wall tile can endure a lot longer because it gets worn down considerably less. Bathtub surfaces can also be regularly changed.

Q: How long will it take to refinish a bathtub?

A: The same day after the job is finished. It is impossible to correctly install a standard tub or something larger in “1 or 2 hours,” therefore be skeptical of any business making this claim. The period of time between our arrival and departure is what we mean when we talk about the time frame. It will take longer than an hour or two from the time they arrive until they leave if a single bathtub refinisher uses industry-standard technology and doesn’t take shortcuts.

Q: My surface was newly refinished. How long must I wait before using it?

A: Bathtub and enclosure usage is restricted to 24 hours. 72 hours after the final coat has been placed, countertops and floor tiles can be put to use. The guarantee will be void if the repaired area is used or disturbed before the necessary cure time.

Q: Do I need to make any preparations before the technician arrives?

A: Yes. Before we can refinish, we must fix any leaky faucets, broken tiles, or cracked grout. The tub’s water supply and drainage systems must also be in perfect operating order. All cleaning items, such as soaps, shampoos, razors, toothbrushes, curtains, shower rods, hanging caddies, and pictures, should be removed from the area. Remove anything that can be touched with a finger. You should ideally remove the shower doors and tracks before we arrive. Before to our arrival, all fixtures that would prevent the tile or tub from being refinished should be taken out, including pedestal sinks, toilets, vanities, cabinets, and other similar items. You are invited to vacuum the rooms and give them a brief cleaning to maintain them sanitary, but it is not necessary. Less surface dust will accumulate on the freshly refinished surface in a clean environment.

Q: What separates bathtub reglazing from bathtub refinishing?

A: No. Giving a hard surface a fresh finish is referred to as bathtub refinishing, bathtub reglazing, tile refinishing, or tile reglazing. Be aware that this is not the same as applying brand-new porcelain. Kilns are required to bake porcelain (oven).

Q: Does the procedure present a risk to me, my family, or my pets?

A: Neither people nor animals are harmed by our treatment. The fragrance is employed to cover up scents while also successfully isolating and ventilating the locations we’re operating in. For the first 24 hours, there will still be a smell. It is usually ideal if you are not present when the actual spraying is being done because everyone has different levels of sensitivity.

Q: Is a warranty included with your services?

A: Yes. We offer a three-year warranty against walls, tile surrounds, and bathtub finishes flaking or lifting on their own. Keep in mind that this is not the same as the anticipated lifetime of your finish. Your finish might last substantially longer with appropriate maintenance, much like a car would outlive its warranty. For damage brought on by above-ground collisions, we do not offer coverage. If a touch-up is necessary and is covered by this guarantee, it is your responsibility to contact us as soon as possible. We’ll then complete the project and deliver the materials without costing you any more fees. There will be a service or repair fee if the issue is not covered by this warranty.

Care & Upkeep of tile, a sink, and a bathtub

  • After the treatment is finished, the surface needs to dry for 24 hours.
  • After 24 hours, you should exercise caution while removing any paper or masking tape.
  • All hardware, such as handles, faucets, drains, and other parts, must be reinstalled within 24 hours.
  • Using suction-cup bath mats is never a smart idea! Any suction cup could damage the surface.
  • Never use an abrasive product while cleaning. The cleanser should only be used once before being completely discarded. Simply use non-bleach cleaning supplies.
  • Shaving cream, bath oil, shampoo, soap, and other items shouldn’t be left on the tub’s edge. The chemical composition of these substances could eventually ruin the finish.
  • Fix any dripping faucets right away. Around drains, drips of water cause early wear and rust to form.
  • To protect the finished surface, carefully pour the liquid drain cleaner into the drain.
  • If you clean and use the space regularly, the majority of the surface dust will disappear in 3–4 weeks. Never use your fingertips to remove surface dust.
