What is Bathtub Refinishing?

Bathtub refinishing or reglazing is the act of preparing and refinishing porcelain, tile, fiberglass, and other bathroom materials. People often believe that bathtub reglazing means simply painting over the existing bathtub to hide any blemishes or cosmetic flaws that have occurred over-time from continuous use. Bathtub refinishing is actually a process that professionals go through to have your bathtub or shower looking as good as new.


Our professionals go through a step-by-step process to get your bathtub or shower looking like new. First, we remove all old caulking surrounding your bathtub and clean the surface. Then, the bathtub must go through an acid etching and wet sanding process. You don’t have to worry about a mess or fumes traveling throughout your house, as our professionals come prepared to mask and protect your entire bathroom and use a sophisticated exhaust system to vent odors and dust outside. A DuPont self-etching primer is applied as a base coat and is followed up with the finish; four coats for a high-shine, high-gloss surface. Finally, we make sure to remove all masking and leave your bathroom clean. Our fast-drying formula will allow you to use your tub 48 hours after we complete the final coat. This is a lot faster than the week or more it might take to replace the tub completely.
