Our Refinishing Process
It takes us about two hours to refinish a tub. We start by removing old caulking and taping off existing tile. Next, we repair any cracks or chips before applying an etching solution, creating a slightly roughened surface. Finally, we apply three coats of high-gloss epoxy that adhere to the tub’s surface and replace the caulking. After we’ve finished the reglazing process, you can use your newly refinished bathtub after just 24 hours.
Why Choose a Bathtub Refinish?
Choosing to refinish your tub rather than replace it can be advantageous for many reasons, including the following:
- Save time and money. While it may take dozens of hours and thousands of dollars to replace your old tub, refinishing a bathtub takes less than a day and is far more affordable.
- Retain your Richmond home’s original bathtub. Finding a replacement for an older cast-iron or claw-foot tub can be difficult, and antique tubs can cost hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars. If you own an older home and want to keep the original feel of your bathroom, claw-foot tub refinishing is just what you need.
- Stay environmentally friendly. Unwanted tubs are often dumped into landfills when all that’s needed to restore them to pristine condition is a simple bathtub reglazing job.
- Avoid health hazards. Lead was once used in bathtub glazes and finishes, and older bathtubs may still pose a dangerous health hazard to you and your family. However, if you discover your bathtub has dangerous levels of lead, there’s no need to replace it — refinishing stops lead from leaking through the porcelain.
- Improve your bathroom’s look and feel. While you’re refinishing the bathtub, why not refinish your tile or sink as well? We can tint our coatings with any Sherwin-Williams® color, making it easy for you to choose the perfect color scheme for your remodeling project.
