If you imagine your bathtub as a sandwich that has a few layers, then you can have an idea of what your bathtub is like. They may seem simple, some paint and a sealant, and that’s it. But the truth is, there are a few layers to a bathtub. The top layer is mostly sealant and paint which is what a refinishing project will correct. These are the layers that chip away the most frequently and are, therefore, the most often repaired. If your tub is flaky or looks like peeling paint, then this is likely the service that you need.
If you are uncertain what is wrong with your bathtub, but know that it needs touched up, then we have experts who can analyze your tub and determine which of our services you need. The inspection is fairly quick and may require some light prodding with a sharp edge to asses which layers are peeling. They won’t dig or damage the tub in any way. Rather, they will use a soft touch and look closely at the layers so that an accurate assessment can be provided to the customer. Contact our experts to start the process.
Refinishing a tub involves the use of a sander or buffer that will lightly buff down the top layers of the bathtub. It will not penetrate beyond these layers or harm the tub in any way, but it will make quite a mess. Not to worry, we will clean up every piece of debris and dust that the buffing causes. Then, the bathtub is wiped down to ensure that no dust particles will interfere with the new paint. Finally, paint is applied to the clean surface in a smooth and even manner before a sealant coat is adhered to the very top.
We have been making messes and cleaning them up for years, so we have gotten pretty good at the clean-up process. No mess left behind, that is what we vow and what we will deliver upon. Having a sparkling, newly refinished bathtub is erased if a mess is the first thing that greets you when you walk into the bathroom. We want all your attention to focus on the bathtub where you can soak up the beauty of the newly refinished product that awaits your enjoyment. The mess will leave with us.
Some people will say that it is cheaper to buy a new tub rather than have it refinished. This is not true when it comes to our services. We have competitive pricing that keeps the cost affordable, so you feel comfortable having us refinish your tub. On top of that, we have become so good at resurfacing bathtubs that we can do them in a very short period of time. Granted, some bathtubs require more work, so every project has a varied amount of time. However, we are confident that you will be pleased with the expedience of our refinish.
