How long will a refinished bathtub, countertop, and tile wall last?

Our refinished bathtub, countertop, and tile wall can easily last 8 to 10 years with proper care and maintenance. Most of our customers have their refinished-bathtubs, which still look and feel great even after 10 years.

How durable are refinished or resurfaced bathtubs?

We use the most advanced coating available. These coatings are designed to stand up to daily use and do not require special care. However, like a bathtub, a refinished or resurfaced surface can be chipped or scratched if it is abused and not taken care of.

What is refinishing cost compare to replacement costs?

Refinishing costs vary but refinishing will always be a fraction of the total cost of replacing a bathtub or ceramic tile. Replacing a bathtub and surround can easily cost $2000 or more. Refinishing can save you up to 75% compared to the cost of replacement!

Does refinishing have an odor or a smell?

The materials we use contain solvents, which are necessary to make the finish hard and durable. 80% to 90% of the smell will be exhausted within the first 4 to 5 hours and substantially gone within a day or two.

Is there a warranty?

Each residential tub comes with six-year warranty against peeling or other failure of adhesion for bathtubs, wall tile, and fiberglass. Each commercial tub comes with one-year warranty against peeling or other failure of adhesion for bathtubs, wall tile, and fiberglass. Chips, cracks, rust, man-made damages can be fixed but are not covered under warranty.

Does a refinished tub takes special care?

Care instructions are similar to those for most brand new bathtubs or new countertops. You cannot use cleaners that contain abrasives, harsh acids, or bleach. Most worn bathtubs, sinks and tile become worn and dull due to abrasive cleansers, not from time.

Why not bathtub liners?

Liners are at least twice as expensive as refinishing and can take up to 3 to 4 weeks from ordering to installation. Refinishing is less expensive and can be done in 4~6 hours.
