When it comes to revitalizing your Decatur bathroom space, bathtub refinishing is the transformative secret that locals are talking about. Imagine stepping into a sparkling tub that looks and feels brand new without the hassle of a lengthy construction project. NU Tub is here to shed some light on the magic behind bathtub refinishing and why it’s the smart choice for anyone seeking both quality and convenience.
What Is the Bathtub Refinishing Process?
With decades of service to thousands of customers, we’ve perfected the steps in the tub refinishing process. Here is what you can expect when we arrive at your home.
Step 1: Shedding the Old
Before the installation begins, NU Tub experts remove the tub’s old caulking, clearing the way for a fresh start. This step is the foundation of the refinishing process so that every other layer adheres seamlessly.
Step 2: A Fresh Canvas
Next on the agenda? It’s an inspection and thorough cleaning. We scrub away years of wear and tear so the tub surface is prepped like a blank canvas, ready for its new appearance.
Step 3: The Gentle Touch
For porcelain tubs, you need a delicate yet effective touch. We apply acid to encourage adhesion, while fiberglass tubs and showers receive a careful hand-sanding. This precision guarantees that the refinishing coats will adhere flawlessly, bringing out the tub’s true beauty.
Step 4: Primed and Ready
Now, we move on to the primer coat, which takes center stage, helping maximize the bond so it lasts. This step is important since it’s the final stage before the finish is applied.
Step 5: The Space-Age Solution
Now, here’s where innovation really shines. NU Tub applies a modified urethane coating, originally developed for none other than NASA and even used on the lunar rover. This layer adds a lustrous finish that’s both breathtaking and long-lasting.
