Bathtub, tile, sink and countertop refinishing
If your tub or tile is dated, damaged or just plain gross, refinishing is for you. A total fixture replacement can take days or even weeks. Not to mention the excessive cost and intrusion on your life. It’s possible that a tub replacement could bring in a demo crew, plumber, drywaller, carpenter and/or painter. That’s not good. Refinishing can be finished in a few hours in most cases. Frequently you can use your fixture the same day!
Reglazing is particularly useful for fixtures with older colors like sea foam green, turquoise or yellow. Ugly! Your can pick whatever color goes with your décor. Chips, cracks and burn marks just go away.

If you are thinking about doing your tub yourself please give it careful consideration. Refinishing involves strong chemicals and skills that are beyond most homeowners—even “handy” ones! The DIY kits available on the internet use low quality materials. Furthermore you need expensive equipment to get the look you want. Don’t throw away your money and time. Get it done right the first time with a professional.
