Bathtub and Fixture Refinishing
In the past I have seen several advertisements about refinishing bathtubs, sinks, and other bathroom fixtures. Now I’m in the market for this service, and I can’t find a single advertisement anywhere! The bathtub in my house has lost its sheen and seems to be getting dingier each day. What method do you suggest to restore the enameled finish, short of replacing the tub? Also, how do I go about finding someone qualified to perform this type of work?
The process includes a chemical cleaning, followed by a chemical etching that prepares the surface to accept the new finish. Then, any chips are repaired, and, finally, the new finish is applied. The result is a smooth and porcelain like surface. Most companies are able to perform the work in a 24-hour period. Many firms offer a written warranty of one to five years.
How to find these guys? Let your fingers do the walking. They can be found in the Yellow Pages under bathtubs!
