The appearance of your bathtub or shower sets the tone for the rest of your bathroom. When your tub becomes cracked, chipped, dingy, or grimy, it’s time to call in the experts. The skilled team of refinishing specialists at NU Tub will quickly make your bathtub sparkle like new. But is bathtub refinishing the right choice for you? Find out below.
Why Not Replace It?
When a bathtub becomes dingy or damaged, many people think replacing the tub is the only option. Replacement, however, comes with a big price tag. Generally, to replace a tub, homeowners are looking at a large construction project that entails removing and replacing drywall, tub surrounds, flooring, and plumbing. This is a time-intensive process that leaves homeowners without a bathroom for an extended period.
Refinishing Saves Time and Money
Fortunately, NU Tub is able to repair and reglaze even the most damaged of bathtubs in just one day, for a fraction of the cost of replacement. Our team of experts will assess the tub for chips, cracks, holes, and scratches. In most cases, we are able to repair the damage with an epoxy-type filler and mend the area with an air-brush technique. Once we have made the necessary bathtub repairs, we can reglaze your bathtub in less than one day.
How Does Reglazing Work?
When it’s time to reglaze your tub, the process is simple:
- First, we acid etch the surface of the tub so the new coating will adhere properly.
- Next, we apply a primer to ensure a strong bond with the new glaze.
- Last, we apply three coats of modified urethane coating in your chosen color.
Bathtub reglazing takes approximately five hours for porcelain surfaces, and eight hours for fiberglass bathtubs. Your tub will be ready for use within 24 hours, and will last for 10 to 20 years!
