What are the steps of bathtub refinishing?
- Cleaning a bathtub with our special bathtub restoration ny cleaners makes the surface perfectly clean. If the surface been refinished before we strip old glaze prior to cleaning it.
- After cleaning, etching is required to make the surface stickier for a top coat.
- When bathtub is etched, it needs to get dry. We dry the surface with our hot air compressor.
- Time to fix and fill big chips and cracks. Almost all damages can be fixed to a 100% invisibility.
- Now we are ready to mask the surface that we don’t want to be sprayed. All except the fixture that needs to be refinished will be covered with the masking paper and plastic cover.
- Now we are ready for saline bonding agent that helps a primer to stick to the surface better. We wipe the surface saline before priming.
- After 2 coats of primer is applied to the surface, we have to wait 10 minutes before applying our final top coat.
- Before a top coat is applied we put a non-skid surface on the base of the bathtub if it is required by a customer.
- Finally, ready for a top coat. 3 coats of acrylic polyurethane is applied to achieve super gloss and durable finish.
How long does bathtub refinishing process take?
Normally between 3 to 4 hours, depending on the condition of the surface. If the bathtub was refinished before then we will have to strip old paint and it will add an extra hour to the process.

How long will it last?

Is a refinished item more likely to chip?
NO, it is as durable if not stronger than the original surface. Whether or not any surface will chip is dependent on the angle at which the dropped item hit’s the surface. A glass bottle can be dropped and not chip a surface, however, a plastic bottle can be dropped on the same surface and chip it.

No more than a new acrylic tub, but if you want an extra protection against slipping, ask about our non-slip finish which is available at an extra cost.
Why should I resurface my wall tile?
The main reason that most customers resurface their tile is to change the color. Many bathrooms have tile that is in good shape, but the color is out-of-date. They are tired of having to decorate around old colors like pink, peach, green, and yellow. At R&R Tub and Tile Reglazing, we apply a new finish over the existing tile. The color is changed without having to go through the time and expense of replacement. You will get a new finish that will look like new tile. The new finish is strong and durable enough to last for many years.
What about the grout?
The new finish is applied as a liquid and covers the grout lines as well. The result is that the grout will be the same color as the tile. Because the grout is so porous, you will have the definition of grout – so it will still have the look of a tile bathroom. Anyone walking into your bathroom will think that you have new tile in your bathroom. A secondary benefit of resurfacing is that the grout will be sealed off. This means that mold and mildew will have a tougher time getting a foothold. The result is that the tile is much easier to keep clean.
