Video of Refinishing Process

    Refinishing and reglazing are both used to describe the process of preparing and refinishing laminate, porcelain or tile fixtures in the kitchen or bathroom.Bathtubs, shower surrounds and shower basins, sinks, tile, vanity tops, countertops, cultured marble, cast iron porcelain, pressed steel enamel, acrylic and fiberglass. We have a variety of refinishing options to choose from, including Stone Finishes and Granitone Finishes.On an average, the refinishing process takes between 3 to 5 hours (depending on the degree of proper preparation work necessary). We offer many popular standard colors and have an infinite selection of designer colors available. We even offer a wide variety of Custom Stone Finishes for tile, tubs, countertops and other fixture refinishing.
    
    Tubs are ready for use in just 24 hours.We use a patented primer and aliphatic urethane epoxy that bonds directly to the tub. It has the same look and feel of a new tub. It won't have brush marks or drips. The topcoat material is applied using an industrial 3-Stage HVLP spray system that yields a super-smooth, high gloss finish.Yes.That’s one of the most common reasons why fixtures are refinished. Usually most types of damage can be repaired. Please contact us and we'll be happy to provide our professional opinion.For bath fixtures, we can fix cracks, rust, scratches, holes, dull spots, chips, pits and discoloration in the refinishing process. We even can install new permanent inlay bottoms in fiberglass tubs and showers that are cracked or have holes. We can evaluate the damages and make expert repairs for all degrees of damage. In fact, we can install permanent bottom inlays to repair cracked and leaking fiberglass tubs and showers.
    
    Do-it-yourself kits are limited in strength and durability and usually fail in a few months. Typically, they consist of an epoxy coating that takes several days to dry and can yellow significantly over time. With most kits, the epoxy is rolled or brushed on the fixture which can result in an unsightly, uneven surface. Even kits that spray-on epoxy can result in uneven coverage and drips. The smooth, high-gloss finish you are looking for cannot be achieved without the proper experience and equipment.Any time you have painting done in your home there is always some sort of residual odor, this hold true with refinishing as well. We minimize the odors by using a portable industrial ventilation system that vents the odors to the outside of the home during the refinishing process. Any residual fumes will be gone usually by the next day.Yes! We have restored a multitude of bath fixtures (nearly 100 years old) making them look new again.

    When considering what to do with an outdated or damaged tub, countertop, sink or wall tile, refinishing is a smart choice. Refinishing can make the chips, scratches, stains and marring completely disappear. That outdated fixture can look new again. With a wide array of color options, you can easily fit your new decor.

Worn or outdated fixtures?... You have the choice of Total Replacement, Bath Liners or Refinishing.
