Refinishing is a fantastic option if your bathtub is rusted, cracked, looks dated, has an ugly color, or is otherwise damaged.
A tub replacement represents a project that takes days or even weeks and may require a whole team of plumber, carpenter, dry-waller and painter. The cost could be astronomical and it comes with a big mess and a lot of stress for the homeowner.
Bathtub refinishing on the contrary, normally takes just a few hours and you can most often use the fixture the same day.
Bathtub refinishing can be done in any one of our standard colors, or a totally custom color. Either way, we can match your current décor.

Keep in mind that refinishing is actually not the most suitable do-it-yourself (DIY) project you may find. It involves strong chemicals and skills that are beyond that of most homeowners. There are tub refinishing kits for sale on the internet, but since you get what you pay for, they all use inferior quality materials and have a shorter durability.
Additionally, you would need at least some quite expensive equipment to get the results and look that you expect. Don’t waste your time or throw away your money. Get it done right the first time with a professional refinisher.
