Go For Bathtub Refinishing Instead of Replacement

Are you thinking of reglazing your bathroom tub, countertop or shower, but you’re not sure about the effectiveness of the entire process and related costs?

If so, then this blog is meant for readers like you. The information given in this piece will prove to be of great help and allow you to take a well-informed decision.

Is it cost effective? It certainly is. When you consider a new bathtub will cost you around $1,500 to $3,000, and this amount does not factor in the tub surround. On the other hand, a professional reglazing is likely to cost you around 15 percent of that price.

A good reglaze can easily last for 5 years and even longer if it is done by a professional installer and you clean it regularly. A cheap job may last for 2 days to 2 years, and you might have to get it done again and that will not be a cost-effective solution.

So, the point here is to get it done “right” the very first time, which means hiring an experienced and authorized refinishing company which uses top quality products. Inferior coating resins or paints can peel or blister, which will cost you more in the long run.

Proper surface preparation and repair of the enamel or tile prior to reglazing sets the professionals apart from the amateurs. You should also ensure that only non-toxic products are used by the reglazing company which means no harmful or toxic gases will linger throughout your home. An authorized Kotts Koatings reglazing company gives 5-year warranty against cracking or peeling.

Good quality coating is also ISO9000 certified and safe to be used in food preparation areas on counter tops and sinks. A reglazed, hardened surface looks like new and becomes more durable and easier to clean. Hiring the services of a locally owned and operated bathtub refinishing company that has several years of experience in this industry gives local residents and property owners a peace of mind that their bathtub, shower, countertop or sink will be made to look like new once again at a fraction of a cost and with minimum downtime.
