General Refinishing/Re-glazing Process
With some variations depending on the surface that will be treated, the general refinishing process is as follows:
Preparation and pre-treatment
(Around 50% of the result will depend on this first stage of the process)
- The original surface should first be pre-treated by chemically cleaning it and etching it
- Any required repairs of rust, cracked tiles, chips or scratches are made.
- All the old caulking is removed
- In many cases the surface must be sanded down to even out any existing roughness and to further guarantee a proper adhesion.
- We carefully mask the areas that will not be refinished to avoid damage due to overspray.
- First, we spray a special primer which acts as a bonding agent and we let it stand for 10-15 minutes
- After that, several layers of the top coat are applied with a professional spray gun. This final coat also consists of a complex polymer type of material that bonds at the molecular level. This product is very durable and has been designed to deal with the extreme conditions in a bathroom like high levels of humidity, constant exposure to hot water, among others . The technician will spray them very carefully one after another until the surface acquires the desired thickness and high gloss appearance so you can enjoy your space for many years without worries.
Application of new caulking
- After the refinishing is done we will apply new layer of caulking around the edges of the re-glazed surfaces for a totally renovated and new look of the space.
A powerful exhaust system is put into place to vent fumes to the outside during the process. Your fixtures will be completely dry and ready to be used in just 24 hours.
Since we use top-of-the-line quality materials, the surfaces will be very easy to maintain and you will receive an excellent warranty on most of the services.
