Refinishing bathtubs instead of replacing them is a relatively cost-effective bathroom makeover alternative. The total estimated cost for a bathtub replacement is $3,000 or more. Refinishing bathtubs is just a fraction of that cost, and you can save up to 75 percent of a replacement cost. Reglazing benefits all homeowners, apartment complex and hotel managers and other property managers by saving them money and time. With this option, they can give a damaged and dirty bathtub a brand new look and color.

With refinishing, bathtub chips and cracks are repaired to give a new look and feel to the bathtub. You also can choose any color for your bathtub. If you do not like the color scheme of your bathroom, you can change the color of your bathtub according to your preference. Bathtubs come in all materials and age in different ways.

Al’s Bathtub Refinishing process

The refinishing process involves removing all the old caulking, thoroughly cleaning the surface to be refinished with a cleaning solution and then using etching solution to maximize the bonding process. Next, the surface and surrounding area is 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 wiped with solvents to remove any contaminants. Next, a primer is applied to the surface to create the best possible surface for the topcoat. Finally, a high-gloss 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.
