Refinishing bathtubs instead of replacing them is a relatively cost-effective bathroom makeover. The total estimated cost for a bathtub replacement is $3,000 or more. Alternatively, refinishing bathtubs is just a fraction of that cost. You can save up to 75 percent of replacement costs. Reglazing benefits all homeowners, apartment complexes, hotels and other property managers by saving them money and time when compared with replacing a tub. With this option, Al’s Bathtub Refinishing can give a damaged and dirty bathtub a brand new look and color.

In refinishing, bathtub chips and cracks are repaired to give a new look and feel to the bathtub. You also can choose any color for bathtubs when refinishing. If you do not like the color scheme of your bathroom, you can change the color of your bathtub according to your choice. Bathtubs come in all materials and age in different ways. Al’s Bathtub Refinishing is an expert at working with worn surfaces on bathtubs, tile, fiberglass showers, cultured marble and countertops. On a tight budget? Al’s Bathtub Refinishing can do spot repairs on rusty old tubs and cracked fiberglass tubs, or chip repairs on brand new tubs. With 20 years of experience in Hawaii, Al’s Bathtub Refinishing can do it all.

Here’s a look at the company’s process:

The refinishing pro-cess involves removing all the old caulking, thoroughly cleaning the surface to be refinished with a cleaning solution, then using etching solution to maximize the bonding process. Next, the surface and surrounding area are dried. Chips or any other imperfections that the surface might have are filled. Next, the walls, floors and any fixtures are masked off. The bathtub is solvent-wiped to remove any contaminates. A primer is applied to the surface to create the best possible base for the topcoat. Finally, a highgloss acrylic urethane topcoat is applied to provide a durable, long-lasting finish to your surface. Al’s Bathtub Refinishing also offers Stone-Flecks: imitation stone finishes in a palette of colors for countertops and showers.
