Refinishing is the smart choice to deal with an outdated or damaged tub, counter top, sink or wall tile. Chips, rust, cracks, stains and dull areas completely go away. Fixtures with outdated colors can be changed and look new again. You choose the color to fit your new decor. Most customers can't tell the difference between a refinished tub and a new one.

Faced with worn or dated fixtures, you have the choice of refinishing or replacement. Think again about replacement. Replacement, especially bathtubs, includes expensive tradesmen and a week of hassles. Frequently demolition is required. That means noisy, dusty work that causes damage to your floors, walls and plumbing.

Not to mention the cost savings. Replacing a tub can cost $2,500 or more.

Thinking about refinishing yourself? We strongly suggest you don't. Bathtub Refinishing or Reglazing is not a do-it-yourself project; it involves the use of strong chemicals and materials that are beyond the skill and ability for most homeowners and untrained users. DIY kits are limited in their strength and durability. Most often DIY refinishing jobs end up being redone by a professional with the additional cost of stripping the peeling finish.
