Reglazing, resurfacing, and refinishing all work interchangeably, and describe the same process of spraying an old and worn looking tub and transforming it into like-new condition. To reglaze your bathtub usually costs less than $300.00. Price is usually dependent on the condition of the tub, such as the amount of cracks, scratches, dents, size, and a couple of other factors.
Estimates from professional bathtub reglazers vary from company to company. To fix the tub is a much more economical choice than replacing it outright. If you are a homeowner that inherited a yellow, blue, pink, or avocado green tub from the 1970’s, you don’t have to pay thousands to replace it.
Bathtub refinishing (reglazing) is both cost effective and the new finish can last up to ten more years, when done right. You might be tempted to save money by doing it yourself. You can pick up a refinishing kit a local hardware store. You should be aware that refinishing is not for the faint of heart. It requires a lot of prep work and cleaning. The chemical used to thorough clean/etch the old finish is hazardous to your health. It is critical that you wear a respirator mask and ventilate the room properly.
Should you choose to hire a bathtub reglazing business, the technician would bring all the necessary ventilation equipment, materials to cover the wall/floors to prevent overspray, and the job would be finished in 4-6 hours.
The main advantage of resurfacing the bathroom tub and tile over the alternative, a bathroom overhaul, is that is saves money. Nowadays, families have limited funds for home upgrades, and refinishing an affordable solution to update the bathroom without knocking down walls.
The second advantage is that it saves you on time. It is a convenient way to revamp the look of your bathtub and tiles in as little as 48 hours. Compared to a renovation that puts the bathroom out of commission for weeks, sometimes months. When you live in a home with only one bathroom, reglazing is the practical way to modernize its appearance without too much downtime.
The third advantage it doesn’t require the hiring of a general contractor or plumber. The reglazing technician uses chemical cleaner, commercial grade primer, and industrial sprayer to apply the two top coats to seal in the new surface. The chemical smell will fade away over a day, and the job is done.
