How Does Carolina’s Tub Doctor Work Their Magic?

shower refinishing knoxville tnIf you are considering getting tub or shower refinishing in Knoxville, TN, you may be curious about how it works. Carolina’s Tub Doctor can make your tub look brand new in just one day with our refinishing process.

Step One

The first step is to remove all of the old caulking and clean the surface of the tub. This primes the surface of the tub for the rest of the process.

Step Two

Next, we etch the porcelain using an acid etching and wet sanding process. This will allow the new glaze to stick to the porcelain better.

Step Three

Once we have the tub prepped and primed, it’s time to seal off the bathroom and install a ventilation system. This will protect the rest of your bathroom and your home from damage while we work on your tub or shower.

Step Four

Now it’s time to apply the self-etching base coat. This will ensure that the glaze goes on smoothly and evenly.

Step Five

Next, we apply the finish in four coats to ensure a high-gloss, high-shine surface. This is applied with a spray on process.

Step Six

Our final step is to remove the masking and ventilation. Whenever we refinish a tub or shower, we always leave the bathroom clean.

This entire process takes one day and your bathtub is ready to use in just 48 hours. Our bathtub and shower refinishing services are a great way to make your bathtub look brand new in a short amount of time at an inexpensive price. Visit to learn more.
