RESURFACING FACTS & FAQS

Resurfacing Preparation

What is Refinishing/Reglazing?
Refinishing/Reglazing is a multi-step process of restoring shine and luster to a pre-existing surface through cleaning, preparation, and lastly, the application of a coating to the surface. This process is cost efficient in that it is a cheaper alternative to replacing the surface and much faster. Many surfaces can be reglazed, such as countertops, tile walls, bathtubs and surrounds.

FAQs:

How much will I save with reglazing/refinishing over replacement?

The total amount saved will largely depend on the size and cost of the tub/surround you would potentially replace it with, however, you could save anywhere from a couple hundred to thousands.

Is there an odor while the work is being completed?
Yes, there is an odor to the process. We recommend you be in a different room or leave while the process is occurring and allow for the area to ventilate.  


How do I care for the tub once it has been reglazed?
The best way to clean and care for your tub, as well as things to avoid, can be found in the resurfacing preparation document at the bottom of the page. 

How long does the bathtub reglazing process take?
Depending on the size of the surface being reglazed, it can take anywhere from 2 to 5 hours. We recommend not using the surface for 24hrs, and if it is a tub, do not allow standing water for 48hrs. 

How long will the surface last?
Depending on how often the surface is used and if you keep up with constant care (cleaning/maintenance), your surface should last 10 years or longer. 


Can imperfections such as cracks, chips, and dents be fixed?
Yes, most imperfections depending on the overall size and extent of damage can be filled in and smoothed out.

Can you reglaze a tub that has been reglazed before?
Yes, you can reglaze a tub even if it has been previously reglazed.
