Refinishing bathtubs instead of replacing them is a relatively cost-effective bathroom makeover alternative. The total estimated cost to replace a bathtub is $3,000 or more, while refinishing bathtubs costs just a fraction of that price and you can save up to 75 percent of the replacement cost.

Refinishing benefits homeowners, apartment complexes, hotels and other property managers by saving them money and time in comparison to replacements. With this option, Al’s Bathtub Refinishing can give a damaged and dirty bathtub a brand-new look and color.


When refinishing, any bathtub chips and cracks are repaired to give a new look and feel to the tub. You can also choose to refinish in any color. 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 various materials and age in different ways. Al’s Bathtub Refinishing is the expert in worn surfaces on bathtubs, tile, fiberglass showers, cultured marble and countertops. If you’re on a tight budget, the company can do spot repairs on rusty, old tubs or cracked fiberglass tubs, even chip repairs on brand-new tubs. With 20 years of experience in Hawaii, Al’s Bathtub Refinishing can do it all.

Al’s process

The refinishing process involves removing all the old caulking and thoroughly cleaning the surface to be refinished with a cleaning solution. Then etching solution is used 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 and the bathtub is solvent-wiped to remove any contaminates.

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, which are imitation-stone finishes that come in a palette of colors for countertops and showers.
