Bathtub refinishing is very popular these days and for all the right reasons. This procedure brings back the shine on porcelain bathtubs and sinks that are dull, worn out and hard to clean.

It is widely used by a large number of homeowners, as well as hotel owners, as they get to save a good deal of money by eliminating the need to replace old fixtures.

The hospitality industry saves up to 80% of the cost of bathtub replacement with this non-toxic refinishing process that comes with a 5-year warranty. Bathtub refinishing takes about 24 hours in total downtime preventing the loss in revenue that occurs during a more intensive remodel.

Worn-out and discolored bathtubs are not only expensive to replace, but their appearance can lead to a loss of return customers and negative reviews. After all, the bathroom is the first thing we check when we rent a room. If it looks less than sparkling it leaves us feeling uncomfortable.

For the hotel companies looking to lower their carbon footprint, bathtub refinishing can help in that respect also. Guests who are conscious of green traveling are showing preference to eco-friendly hotels for short-term or long-term accommodation.

As the global competition continues to get tougher, more hotels, serviced apartments, and motels will continue to look at cost-effective ways to maintain their bathrooms.

Another advantage of quality bathtub refinishing is that it leaves no mess in the bathroom. The space can be used in 24 hours depending on the quality of coatings used and the efficiency of the refinishing contractor.
