FAQs

How long does refinishing take?Refinishing a tub, sink or countertop takes approximately three to four hours. That's it!

Is the new finish the same as the original finish? Yes, it has the same look and feel of a new tub.

How long after completion before we can use the new tub? About 24 hours after completion is recommended.

What kind of repairs can you do? For bath fixtures, we can fix cracks, chips, rust spots, pits and discoloration in the refinishing process. Kitchen counters with knife cuts, burns, scratches and chips will also look new.

Is reglazing the same as refinishing?Yes, they both describe the act of preparing and refinishing porcelain, tile or laminate fixtures in the bathroom and kitchen.

What colors are available? Almost any color you desire.


Will my tub look painted?No, it won't have brush marks or drips.  The top coat is applied with a spray gun that leaves a super-smooth, high gloss finish.

What if my fixture is damaged?No problem. In fact that's one of the major reasons fixtures are refinished.  Part of the process is fixing all types of damage. Contact us and we'll be happy to give you our professional opinion.

What bathroom and kitchen surfaces can be refinished? Tubs, wall tile, sinks, vanity tops, showers and shower bases, cultured marble, Formica countertops, cast iron, porcelain, pressed steel, enamel, fiberglass and acrylic.

My tub was refinished by someone else and is peeling. What happened? More than likely, shortcuts were taken during the preparation process.  This results in a weak bond between the topcoat and the previous finish.  We meticulously prepare the surface so the bond is super strong resulting in years of use.  We don't skip steps and use the highest quality materials available.

My fiberglass tub/shower has a crack in it. Can it be repaired?We have several processes to fix fiberglass fixtures. The preferred method matches the severity of the damage. Call us and we'll listen to your needs and recommend the most cost-effective solution.

Can I refinish my tub with a DIY kit from a home improvement store? DIY kits have limited strength and durability. They often scratch or chip within a few months, and typically consist of an epoxy coating that takes up to 5 days to dry. These kits tend to yellow significantly over time. Most kits are rolled or brushed on and the spray kits are difficult to work with leaving uneven coverage, dry spray and drips. The mirror-like finish you really want cannot be achieved without professional application. 

Do you also refinish countertops, tile or sinks?Yes, yes and yes!

Are there any offensive odors when refinishing? Any time you have painting done in your home paint odors will linger for a few days. We minimize these odors by using a sophisticated exhaust system that vents dust and odor to the outside while we work. Some companies use a box fan. That's simply not enough.
