Good Candidates for Tub Repair & Refinishing
What makes a bathtub a good candidate for repair or refinishing? The professionals at Tub Tile & Tops can help if your bathtub is:
- Damaged, chipped or cracked
- Worn out
- Difficult to clean
- Very old and in need a new color
Bathtub repair and refinishing is possible on several types of surfaces, including porcelain, cast iron, steel, cultured marble, fiberglass, and tile. Using eco-friendly products for every project, our highly skilled technicians can handle the reglazing of all kinds of tubs, from antiques to Jacuzzis, to shower-and-bathtub units. You’ll be amazed by the quick and beautiful results of our bathtub refinishing process.
Refinishing VS. Replacing a Bathtub
There are countless reasons why choosing tub refinishing over replacement just makes sense. Consider the following:
- Tub replacement means pulling out the old tub, potentially damaging flooring, tile work, and walls, hauling the tub to the landfill, lots of noise and mess during the process, not to mention the thousands of dollars that you’ll spend. Start to finish, this can take days or even weeks, depending on the contractor and complexity.
- Bathtub refinishing, on the other hand, is quick and easy, there is no mess, no bothersome noise, and the tub will be ready to use in just four hours after the refinishing process is complete.
- Costs for refinishing are 75 to 85 percent less than replacement – significant savings that everyone can appreciate!
Add an Optional Slip Resistant Surface (SRS)
With each bathtub refinish we complete, customers have the option to add a slip resistant surface (SRS) to the floor of the tub or shower. The SRS is a cost-effective way to make your tub safer.
The slip resistant surface (SRS) is a permanent, textured substance that’s added to the floor of your tub, allowing for better traction and safety. This texturized surface is nearly invisible to the eye and easy to clean, unlike some imprinted non-slip surfaces. Since the new surface will be sprayed on top of this coating, it will be sealed, sanitary, and can prolong the life of your tub. The surface is applied to the entire length of the floor, from the drain to the back of the tub.
The slip resistant surface (SRS) can help prolong the life of your newly-resurfaced tub. Since it is permanent, it does not need to be removed while cleaning, unlike other bathmats. Use of non-slip stickers or a suction cup bathmat can severely damage your tub, causing the new surface to deteriorate quicker, leaving discolored areas, or even removing the new surface. If you are worried about slippery surfaces, it is best that you have the SRS installed to prevent the voiding of your warranty by using bathmats or stickers.
It is recommended that anyone with children, elderly adults, or those with disabilities in their households have the slip resistant surface installed. It is also HIGHLY recommended that all commercial and rental properties have the surface installed to prevent damage from neglectful tenants, safety hazards, and the voiding of your warranty from the use of bathmats and stickers.
Normally the slip resistant surface (SRS) costs $150 to install. However, it is priced at only $50 if you decide to have the SRS installed at the time of your tub reglazing process.
While we can install the slip resistance surface on some surfaces after the refinishing process, it is recommended that the surface be installed during the initial process, so as to create a nice, clean seal. It is EXTREMELY important that you speak with the technician before the resurfacing process has begun to tell them you want the SRS to be applied.
