Refinishing Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Refinishing Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: You Could Be Curious: Why Refinish?

A: It is vital to include all costs when estimating the cost of replacement, including labor and installation costs, removal and replacement costs, time, and mess related to bathroom remodeling. Refinishing is a great option to replace because it costs less than 80% and increases the value of your home.

Q: How long the new finish will last is a question.

A: Bathtubs and enclosures should last for about ten years with regular maintenance. Wall tile can survive a lot longer because it gets a lot less use. Bathtub surfaces can also be frequently changed.

Q: How long does the bathtub refinishing procedure take?

A: On the same day as soon as the job is finished. It is impossible to correctly install a normal tub or something larger in “1 or 2 hours,” therefore be skeptical of any business making this claim. The period between our arrival and departure is referred to as the time frame. From the time they come until they leave, a single bathtub refinisher will need to spend more than an hour or two if they use industry-standard technologies and don’t take shortcuts.

Q: My surface was recently refinished. How long must I wait before I can use it?

A: Bathtubs and enclosures may only be used for 24 hours. After the final layer has been put in, countertops and floor tiles can be used after 72 hours. If the repaired area is used or disturbed before the required cure time, the guarantee will be void.

Q: Do I need to make any preparations before the technician shows up?

A: Yes. Before we can refinish, any leaky faucets, broken tiles, or cracked grout must be fixed. The water supply and drainage systems of the tub must also be in perfect operating order. Soaps, shampoos, razors, toothbrushes, curtains, shower rods, hanging caddies, and photographs should all be removed from the space before cleaning. Remove everything that can be touched with a finger. You should ideally remove the shower doors and tracks before our arrival. Before our arrival, you should remove any fixtures, such as pedestal sinks, toilets, vanities, cabinets, or other similar items that would prevent the tile or tub from being refinished. You are invited to vacuum the rooms and give them a brief cleaning to maintain them hygienic, but it is not necessary. Less surface dust will collect on the freshly refinished surface in a clean atmosphere.

Q: What makes reglazing a bathtub different from refinishing one?

A: No. Giving a hard surface a new finish is referred to as bathtub refinishing, bathtub reglazing, tile refinishing, or tile reglazing. Keep in mind that applying brand-new porcelain is not the same as doing this. Kilns are necessary to bake porcelain (oven).

Q: Does the operation put me, my family, or my pets at risk?

A: Neither humans nor animals are harmed by our process. The fragrance is effectively employed to close off and ventilate the spaces we’re operating in while masking odors. Throughout the first 24 hours, there will still be a smell. It is normally ideal if you are not present when the actual spraying is being done because everyone has different levels of sensitivity.

Q: Do your services come with a warranty?

A: Yes. For three years, we offer a warranty against walls, tile surrounds, and bathtub finishes flaking or lifting on their own. This is not the same as the anticipated lifetime of your finish, so keep that in mind. Your finish might last substantially longer with proper maintenance, just like a car would outlive its warranty. We do not offer coverage for harm brought on by crashes above ground. If a touch-up is necessary and is covered by this guarantee, you must get in touch with us as soon as possible. Afterward, without further charge to you, we’ll complete the work and provide the materials. If an issue is not covered by this warranty, a service or repair fee will be assessed.

Care and Upkeep of bathtub, sink, and tiling

  • After the treatment is finished, the surface must dry for 24 hours.
  • Any paper or masking tape removal after 24 hours must be done carefully.
  • All hardware, including handles, faucets, drains, and other parts, must be reinstalled within 24 hours.
  • Suction-cup bath mats are never a smart idea! Any suction cup could discolor the surface.
  • Never use an abrasive product when cleaning. Use the cleanser only once, then throw it away completely. Just use non-bleach cleaning supplies.
  • Shaving cream, bath oil, shampoo, soap, and other necessities shouldn’t be kept on the tub’s edge. The chemical composition of these substances could eventually degrade the finish.
  • Any dripping faucets need to be addressed right away. Around drains, dripping water causes early wear and rust to form.
  • In order to protect the finished surface, carefully pour the liquid drain cleaner down the drain.
  • If you clean the area and utilize it regularly, the majority of the surface dust will disappear in 3–4 weeks. Do not use your fingertips to remove surface dust.
