A relaxing bubble bath at the end of a long tiring day may very well be just what the doctor ordered for relaxation. But in order to be truly comfortable in your bathtub, it needs to be neat and clean.

Regular usage takes its toll on bathroom fixtures, more so your bathtub. Rust, grime and cracks can wreak havoc on your relaxing oasis and make it unsightly.

However, there’s a solution to every problem and this issue can be eliminated using a non-toxic ISO 9000 certified reglazing. Whether you’re dealing with minor stains, rusting, or cracks, this bathtub renovation option fits your budget, timeline and lifestyle.

What is Bathtub Reglazing?

It is a pretty straightforward process that is best performed by a professional applicator. An expert preps the tub’s surface, does filling of cracks and worn areas, and then applies several coats of non-toxic coating before it finally achieves the sparkling finish.

It can be termed as a cosmetic update since it only improves the outer appearance of your porcelain bathtub.

Will It Work for My Tub?

This reglazing process works on all hard, flat surfaces. So if you have been stressed over stains, scratches, and other imperfections you can have a new looking bathtub at the fraction of the cost.


  • Reglazing is a cost-effective option that can save you thousands of dollars. Cost and quality can vary from contractor to contractor so you will want to work with a pro like Total Koatings.
  • It saves you time. It can be completed within a day as opposed to renovation which can take days to complete.


  • Using a reglazing that contains toxic materials can be a bit dangerous. Customers may need to leave their house for a day or two to allow proper ventilation.
  • There are lots of inferior products out there. So, make sure you get it done the right way, by a professional applicator of Kott’s Koatings.
