The shower enclosure may be a private place where you take a relaxing steamy shower at the end of a tiring day to refresh yourself or a quick shower to start a new day before heading off to work.

Some that only rinse and go, don’t stop and consider the impression the shower’s appearance has on guests and even perhaps on their own mood.

If you are building a new bathroom, it is always a wise idea to go for easy to clean showers and tubs but did you know that re-glazing also makes the tub and tile easier to clean? Yes, the re-glazing process covers the grout and tile with a hard glossy finish making it easier to keep clean.

Not only will you save time on cleaning you will also save money. You see, re-glazing the sink, tub and tile is much cheaper than replacing. But, the value will only be felt if you hire an experienced professional that does the job correctly.

Here’s how you can hire the best service provider in your area:

1. Does the contractor hold a license or certification? Yes, do check if the license is valid (check expiry date). Not all contractors do it all, so be sure this is a service they regularly perform.

2. Make sure the contractor is insured so that you do not face the risk of being sued in case any mishap occurs on site and someone gets critically injured. Check Certificate of Insurance specifically addressed to you.

3. Check how experienced he is. The longer they have been in this business, the more efficient his re-glazing work is likely to be.

4. You can ask for referrals so that you can take a look at some re-glazing projects performed by them. You can also take feedback on the conduct of the workers from his clients. Read online reviews and do some basic research.

Remember, anyone can call themselves an expert. It is up to the consumer to decide if they truly are experienced and trustworthy.
