Bathtub Reglazing and Choosing the Right Service Your tub has become old and ugly and you think you’re ready a change. That brand-new $300 bathtub unit at a retail hardware store is so tempting. On the other hand, you can simply reglaze or refinish your old tub for much less hassle and cost and still have a tub your friends will swear is new. For about $300 to $400, a reglazing company will put fresh coating to a typical tub within a day, and it can be used again in a matter of two to four days – definitely faster than a total replacement!

5 Uses For Products
> Request quotes from two or three contractors. > Inquire about their product, how long it takes them to finish the project, and if they offer any warranties or guarantees. > Research the contractor’s training, experience and certifications. > Because the project requires the reglazers to be in your home, know what type of background checks they conduct on their workers or subcontractors. > Ask for client references and let them show photos of previous projects. > Don’t hire anyone who is not bonded, licensed and insured, no matter how great they may seem.

Typical Bathtub Reglazing Issues Even if you’ve hired a well-reputed professional, not all jobs are perfect. In the world of bathtub reglazing, these are signs that something is wrong: > Bubbles – indicates air is trapped in between individual paint layers, either because the bathtub was used before the paint could dry completely or the coating was not allowed to set properly > Fading – due to the paint or coating being mixed too thinly or not being allowed to dry properly, or if the bathtub is cleaned after the reglaze with the products that are too harsh and abrasive > Roughess – shows that the bathtub’s surface was not cleaned and sanded properly before the coating was applied > Sticky feel – a sign that the reglaze coating hasn’t fully set and may have to be reapplied, although it’s also likely that the reglazing chemicals were not combined properly or that something, such as a cleaning agent, might have reacted with the coating Just because you plan to hire a professional bathtub reglazer doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be in full control of your project. By knowing how to hire a good contractor to how to check for reglazing problems, you should be just fine.
