Replacing a bathtub, shower stall, liners, grout, and fixtures can cost up to 5 times as much as refinishing the existing fixtures. In fact, costly renovations can cost 70 to 80% more than simply restoring, resurfacing, or refinishing what is already in place. Your restored fixtures can have a new look and a useful life of 15 years or more. Refinished and restored surfaces can typically be returned to regular use in less than a day – versus the weeks or months that a renovation can take.

A clear work space, electricity, and water are really all that is required. Furnishings, pictures, linens, personal items, and curtains should be removed from the immediate work area. Any further preparation will be depending upon the services we will be performing and we'll discuss details with you at the time of consultation.

Our whole process usually takes less than 4 hours on a bathtub, and surfaces such as countertops and floors depend on the size of the area. We can also fix your broken tiles and restore your grout lines to look new again. If your tub or shower has been coated in the past and needs the old finish stripped off, a few additional hours will need to be added to our schedule.

A bathtub that has been refinished before, may be refinished again. But for tubs that have been coated – we would need to strip away the old coating and residue before applying a new finish.

Homeowners win when a properly maintained tub and surfaces sustains their property value. The benefits of a clean bathroom and other surfaces do affect your bottom line as a business, motel, hotel, or resort owner. Once your tubs, sinks, showers, and other surfaces have been professionally cleaned or coated, the surfaces are smooth, shiny, and clean – so future maintenance cleaning will become a breeze.

A new finish or shine can become dulled by overly abrasive cleaners and bleaches. Puddles of standing water can also leave mineral deposits, so it is important to fix leaks when they are noticed, and to ensure that bathtubs and sinks drain properly. Easily maintain the shine and luster by regularly cleaning the surfaces with mild, natural cleaners and soft cloths.

Our skilled technicians can smooth or fill in any chips or other imperfections in your bathtub or other surface, making your damaged acrylic, porcelain, or fiberglass surface look nice and new again!
