What is included with the bathtub / tile or Shower refinishing Process?
How Much is it? (2 packages to choose from!)
Does it Last? Well,.... Let's start below! (8) Year Warranty Included! If it fails it is my fault .. Period!
Please Know I Do NOT use Methylene Chloride - That is a product that is very toxic and actually found in paint strippers that was used to strip the old epoxy paint off bathtubs and tile. I do not use it and have not bought it since 1995. I also DO NOT use Hydroflouric Acid - this is a very dangerous and corrosive acid used to etch porcelain tubs. I use a spun fiber disk operating at 2600RPM to etch tubs with a softer disk used to strip and sand back old Epoxy paint. I will not bring these toxic chemicals into your home, around your family because it speeds the process and puts a few extra dollars in my pocket. Never. I promise you that.
#1.) What Is Included?
Chemical wash to dissolve and remove soap and oil residue.
Etching of the old surface using a spun-fiber disc that operates at 2,600 RPM.
Prohesion molecular bonding agent using nano technology hand rubbed into the pores opened through the etching process. This allows the bonding agent to not only bond on the surface level buttopenetrate the pores and bond beneath the surface!
(9-12) coats of Fluorocopolymer finish coat with the correct additives customized to the surface it is being applied to (crosslink additives are resins such as fiberglass resin, polyester and silicone. These can be used together added into the copolymer formula or they can be added individually and in specific increments to suite the original surface! Fiberglass, Acrylic, cultured marble, porcelain, cast iron, steel and porcelain can all be refinished with a permanent Fluorocopolymer surface) (Learn about Fluorocopolymer polyester coatings (opens a new tab)
The final result is a gorgeous, like new bathtub, tile or shower surface! Warranty included. (Not an add on sale like other refinishing professionals)
You now have a permanent fix to the worn, discolored or damaged surface with a realistic life expectancy of over 20 years!! (That is the same as a New Porcelain Bathtub!!)
This is a Limited Time only for the sale. Recaulking is included. There is nothing else to buy! It takes less than a day to complete in 99% of the cases and will always be ready for use the very next day!!

What Does Crosslinking Mean
Crosslinked Polymer Bathtub Refinishing
Crosslinking of polymers is a process where polymer chains are connected to each other These chains are caused by incorporating heat and allowing the polymer molecules to "link" causing a very, very strong bond.. The basics of how organic peroxides are used in the crosslinking of polymers typical examples of cross linked or (vulcanized) plastics and rubbers are shoe soles, underground and under sea cables (Imagine the harshness of the sea and the reliability that is a must.) Also timing belts and radiator hoses in cars and pipes. This is why technology has advanced in the field of Polyceramic Glass Glaze. No longer is the Tub and Tile refinishing Industry A quick fix painting service. Tub and Tile Refinishing, when correctly completed using the synergistic approach of multiple steps and correct thickness is a permanent fix!

Ask about having your Vanity Refinished at the same Time as The Bathtub. I will quote you a HUGE discounted price and it upgrades the cultured marble finish ten fold! No more surface cracks in the sink bottom! <PRICE LIST>
Bathtub Refinishing Dallas owner / operated company and services the Bathtub, tile, Sink and Vanity refinishing needs of the DallasTexas area. I am an owner / operated business that has been servicing the Dallas Area for over 22 years. I have a completely clean background, Insured and take care of my customers personally. I fuse the new surface into the old, not on top of the old. Which involves etching through the Glaze, Hand rubbing the Molecular bonding agent into the exposed pores and microscopic scratches then applying synthetic porcelain finish coat as the final coating. My price List page will show you the exact cost to refinish your bathtub, tile, vanity in the Dallas area.
Because I care about your home, your Family, your pets and health I use the Low V.O.C Made in America Fluorocopolymer as recommended by the Professional Bathtub Refinishing Association! ; Also I will use a fiberglass or vinyl cross link when needed under certain circumstances such as a Fiberglass or cultured marble bathtub. This will allow the bathtub to flex without cracking the new surface. Other Refinishers want to use a one product fits all mentality and they don't realize the old surface on fiberglass and cultured marble will give and flex. If the same product that was used on a cast Iron Bathtub were used on a Fiberglass Bathtub, Cultured Marble Bathtub or even an acrylic bathtub for that matter it would crack and fail rather quickly.
Bathtub refinishing and bathtub painting are two completely different things. Often consumers are tricked into thinking bathtub painting with Epoxy paint is actually refinishing. This is why I offer True Dallas Bathtub Refinishing. The truth is Bathtub refinishing is a process that should be left to the professionals. Professional refinishing is achieved through etching the old surface, this exposes pores in the old surface, A bonding primer is then applied so when the finish coat is applied usually 5 coats thick the new surface is bonded to the old surface. Dallas Bathtub Refinishing takes this process and expands on the basics. I etch the old surface with both chemical and manual etching so the exposed pores are on every square inch of the surface. I then use molecular bonding agent. It creates a permanent bond! This molecular bonding agent is hand rubbed into the exposed pores and over the entire surface. It has a chemical reaction with the synthetic porcelain that is applied with an H.V.L.P. sprayer (high volume low pressure) this is like an airbrush on steroids so get a great shine with no brush or roller marks! Dallas Bathtub Refinishing
Below I have detailed how I refinish each surface. If you want to skip this information then please look at the navigation bar above for contact information and my price list.
Dallas Bathtub Refinishing NEVER uses the brush and roller system of bathtub painting that others try to call bathtub refinishing. Anytime you simply paint on top of an old surface, especially when that old surface is like a bathtub or even tile surround. You can not expect the paint to last very long. It's Equivalent to painting GLASS, then expecting it to last. This is why Bathtub Refinishing is so much more than bathtub painting. This is true on any surface that involves bathtubs or tile because each surface offers a unique challenge. Here are a few examples:
Porcelain bathtub surface - This surface would be equivalent to trying to paint glass. It is fired in the factory and has a cast iron core but is coated in porcelain then baked. This surface would be refinished by first scrubbing the entire surface with a chemical cleaner to melt any type of soap residue and oils that may be invisible to the naked eye but will be disastrous to the refinishing process. Next the surface is etched using a mechanical etching tool, NEVER using the very dangerous acids of years ago. Another chemical rinse is done to make sure I have cleaned up all areas thoroughly. Now is the molecular bonding agent. This first molecular bonding coat is then hand rubbed and worked into the microscopic scratches and pores that were caused by the etching process. Now it is time to apply the first coat of the Fluorocopolymer coating on the surface. This first coat melts into the molecular bonding agent so it penetrates beneath the original surface and with a combination of several more bonding coatings and finish coatings of synthetic porcelain the proceed to melt into the prior coating. With a hard surface such as porcelain bathtubs and tile I will use a liquid glass additive in the copolymer coating so it cures to a hard glossy finish. Mimics the Look and Feel of Porcelain!!
Fiberglass, Acrylic, Cultured Marble- These surfaces all have (2) things in common, They flex (which is why they crack) and they all contain fiberglass. Not only will the refinishing repair the cracks but adds a lot more strength to the original surface. So when repairing these surfaces and refinishing these surfaces it is best to use a fiberglass resin additive to the synthetic porcelain. They will be cleaned and etched just like porcelain. However, we want to take advantage of the fiberglass resin so the new surface will flex with the old surface. These surfaces will still be finished off with the liquid glass additive in synthetic porcelain. However, since we are making the new surface an integral part of the fixture we will still allow it to flex when under pressure so the new surface does not crack like the surface does when a (one coating fixes all) system is used.
BathtubRefinishing was first recognized in the 1960's. Most of the bathtub,tile,shower refinishing work was completed in the more crowded areas of the United States such as Chicago. In Fact in Chicago you will see bathtubrefinishing trucks and vans as much if not more then you see carpet restoration vans here in the Dallas,Tx. area. The reason behind this is because of the amount of work and expense that is associated with replacing a bathtub. A quick trip to any home improvement store will reveal the actual price of a bathtub is only a few hundred dollars. This is just the beginning of the cost associated with bathtub replacement. Bathtub replacement will involve a plumber, then the removal of at least two rows of tile surrounding the tub because of the lip around the tub to prevent water leaking behind the tub. Then the mathematics of 'will the old tub go out thru the door and hallway'. More importantly, will the new bathtub fit back in? As you can quickly realize after just touching on a few of the issues with bathtubreplacement you will quickly understand why bathtubrefinishing is a very cost effective and time effective solution. Most all bathtubrefinishing can be completed in a single visit. Dust and construction mess is virtually non existent and my flat rate bathtub refinishing Dallas area prices means you will know the exact price to budget!
The two videos at the top of the page show peeling paint. We need to figure out why because I have seen this more in 2018 than I have in the past several years!
First, you need to understand that bathtub refinishing is not painting a bathtub. I have seen more bathtubs and tile painted in 2018 than I have in the last several years. (One job the customer admitted they had considered me 2 months earlier but went with a cheaper price) I promise I understand! However, I need to explain why prices are set the way they are.
Instead of looking for quality... some professionals are looking to cut cost and raise profits! There are professionals charging $250 for a bathtub refinishing job that are making more money per job than I make at my prices. It cost me more than that to refinish a tub... And I do the work myself!!
Epoxy paint, lacquer automotive paint, oil based paint... I have seen it all. Why throw away money on something that is going to only last a few weeks or months at best! The question is not "If it is going to peel?" But rather "How soon is it going to peel?"
Some people will watch the videos at the top of this page and think "Wow, that surface was just not prepped correctly" that is 100% true.. not prepared correctly and not restored correctly! But .... wouldn't at least part of the paint stick? Look at the tile video some of that stuck ...decent (I cringe as I say that) ... but some did not.
The fact that paint goes on top of the old surface has more blame, the key word being paint! Also to blame are the cheap lacquer thinners! So many times instead of purchasing the specialty thinner designed for correct coating Lacquer thinner is used because.... well, it thins the coating and it's half the price of the correct thinner. (Correct being the key word here) See, it's not about making something look pretty good (that's not hard to do) ... it's about trying to duplicate a factory finish and provide years of service! Lacquer thinner contains alcohol and other fillers that leave the coating brittle in areas.
Etching the old surface opens pores and creates microscopic scratches. This crucial step is being dismissed for the sake of time. (New methods want to bond with epoxy primer).... I don't mind spending the extra time for a proven method!
Silane is a molecular bonding agent developed by the Aerospace Industry! (once again the quality varies from supplier to supplier with 100's available) High quality silane is worked into the pores of the etching process, and high quality silane is applied between coats to tie the coatings together. It is an expense and it is not going to be seen (so many will skip on this step)... yet the lack of it will surely show in a matter of weeks!
So How is my refinishing completed? You will quickly see this is not a specific coating... it is a process a synergistic process that works together with each step being crucial to the outcome!
First, I sanded and stripped back the paint that failed! Then I etched the old surface using a spun fiber disk rotating at 2600 RPM. Everything was then clean with tub and tile clean. After this Silane was hand rubbed into the surface before being refinished with a Copolymer coatingthat is infused with polyester and silicone resin for a superior gloss and then chemically welded into, not on top of the surface and tied with silane bonding agent between the 12 coats.This is Not Epoxy paint that yellows,dulls and fades and Not Alipahtic Acrylic Urethane paint like the others use! This dries to a non yellowing, ultra hard and chemically bondedsurface that is expected to last 20 years before needing to be refinished again! It includes a valuable 8 year transferable warranty! So if you sale or lease your home you are covered! See my price list for prices and warranty (true warranty that is NOT prorated!
What is fluoropolymer coating? Just as epoxy and aliphatic acrylic urethane are paints that other refinishers use. Fluoropolymers are like "spraying in a tub liner" rater than painting because fluoropolymers are closely related to plastic rather that paint. So you are betting a smooth, porcelain look and feel of a sprayed in tub liner bonded on a molecular level!
