Many people don’t realize that when it’s time to update a bathroom you don’t have to rip out your old bathtub in order to bring it into the current century. Tub refinishing is a very viable remodeling option all homeowners should consider. Here’s what the process looks like when you choose refinishing services from NU Tub.
Bathtub refinishing takes your existing bathtub and restores it to a like-new condition. Your bathtub becomes a blank canvas for a tub that looks better than ever─you may not even recognize it after refinishing is complete. Many contractors describe it as a resurfacing process, which involves removing old caulk, deep cleaning the tub surface, a light etching, and then a priming and coating process.
Refinishing generally takes anywhere from five to eight hours from start to finish. The result is a look-like-new bathtub that’s durable and beautiful. The finish is tough (originally formulated to be used by NASA), and you can choose from a variety of colors. Plus, tub refinishing is often less expensive and time consuming than a complete bathtub replacement. (For more on this, read our previous blog post on deciding whether to repair or replace your tub.)
