Thinking about getting your bathtub refinished? If so—good decision! If your tub is looking a little lackluster, bathtub refinishing is much cheaper and easier than replacing it altogether. However, you may have some questions if you’ve never had a tub refinished before. You can always call us at Tub Tile & Tops to ask any questions you may have, but you can also read below to get answers to some of the most common questions we are asked.

How Much Experience Do You Have?

Obviously, the longer a company has been in business, the more experience it has and the better they will be at bathtub refinishing. At Tub Tile & Tops, we’ve been in business since 2006.

How Long Does Bathtub Refinishing Take?

The average amount of time is six to eight hours. This ensures that everything will be prepared properly beforehand and that things will be done thoroughly and correctly. Beware of a refinishing company that claims it can finish your bathtub within 3 hours—they aren’t doing the job well if that’s the case.

Do You Have Good References?

It’s absolutely crucial to look at the feedback a company has. If a company has many bad reviews, don’t hire them. When customers are pleased with the work, they voice positive feedback so that others can find a good business. Be sure to read reviews.

How Long before I Can Use My Bathtub Again?

A “cure time” is the length of time required for the new bathtub coating to set and harden correctly. If you don’t allow the right cure time, it can result in premature coating failure. Cure times depend on what materials and coatings are used, so we will be sure to explain to you how long you must wait. The average cure time for most refinishing materials is 24 hours.
