Stepping Into Your Newly Refinished Bathtub, Shower

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: BathInterior

There are many home improvement projects undertaken each year, but the most common remodel is in the bathroom. Why is this?

Al Fernandez, owner of Al’s Bathtub Refinishing, explained that the bathroom is one of the few rooms in your house you will use every day and spend a substantial amount of time in. It’s a place where you can get away — a relaxing oasis in a crazy world. Your bathroom should also serve you and all of your needs. This is why the bathroom is the most common remodel.

Identify your budget

The average homeowner’s first thought when they think of remodeling a bathroom is to “tear out and replace” the entire room. Since bathrooms and kitchens usually have many hard surfaces, they are where the largest challenges and expenses occur. Complete or conventional remodeling involves messy tear outs of not only the fixtures, but also the floors, beams and walls before the room is rebuilt using new materials.

Fortunately, now there is an affordable way to renew your bathroom and kitchen without all the hassles, costs and inconveniences of conventional remodeling. This process is known as refinishing, resurfacing or reglazing.

This procedure has actually been around for about 50 years, but it is still unknown by many homeowners. Refinishing is the most economical and efficient way to revitalize your bathroom. Traditional fixture replacements involve not only the cost of new fixtures, but also replacing the wall, tile, wall-board and sometimes the floor. Also, pipes and hardware, which are damaged during the removal of the tub, can be very costly and time consuming. With reglazing, Al’s Bathtub Refinishing can change the color of your existing fixture to practically any color imaginable in one day. Using high-quality products and techniques, Al’s Bathtub can completely restore the beauty and luster your fixtures once had.

Stained, chipped and hard-to-clean surfaces also are unsightly, unhealthy and create a negative impression on your guests, customers, clients or renters.
