As a consumer I completely understand how bathtub refinishing may be something that you have not really heard of or may know very little about. I always try to put myself in my customers shoes. I wanted to take a minute on this gorgeous Friday morning the good Lord has blessed us with to simply go over some questions that I am often asked.
I think this translates to "does refinishing last?" YES! this has not always been the case but please keep in mind any industry that money can be made in technology will produce better and better results. The epoxy paint kits that are sold are 1990's technology. Epoxy has not been an accepted coating in the bathtub and tile refinishing Industry since 2002 or 2003. During that time of the Epoxy paint (Yes, I have used my fair share of it) was strictly for Apartments and Hotels. It was a quick fix, had a painted look but it still looked okay, it would yellow if strong bleach was used and it was a paint. This meant it was painted on top of the old surface. Since it was painted on top of the old surface It would peel.
This is why technology went into developing a coating that could perform as close to porcelain as possible. Not just a coating was developed but a process, a synergistic process that works by building on the step before. A bathtub and tile refinishing pro will know that each step must be completed. However, when the steps are completed the end result is a product that has the same lifespan as a new porcelain bathtub which is 20+ years! Bathtub Refinishing Dallas Price List
Bathtub refinishing is the process of chemically welding a new surface into the old surface, not painted on top of the old surface.
