What is Bathtub Refinishing?
Whether done by an ambitious amateur as a do-it-yourself (DIY) project or by a bathtub refinishing professional, the steps of rejuvenating and recoloring a bathtub are about the same:
- Select a color and finish
- Prepare the area and the tub
- Remove the old finish to the greatest extent possible (this can be very hard work for amateurs)
- Repair dents, dings and damage (if the old tub is cracked, do not refinish; replace)
- Apply the new finish
- Let it cure before use
A qualified tub refinishing service can help you avoid the harmful, unpleasant fumes of refinishing products, save you the hard labor of sanding off the old finish, give you a beautiful, completely professional finished product, offer far more color choices than a DIY kit, and produce a tough, long-lasting finish.
Most DIY kits produce finishes good for only a year or two; professional tub refinishing can be warranted for at least five years.
