Bathtub refinishing is not a new concept and in fact has been around since the 1960's. Back then Bathtub refinishing A.K.A. bathtub refinishing or bathtub reglazing was completed using epoxy paint. The issue with using epoxy paint is it had a dull appearance, will yellow when bleach is used and since it is a paint, It is actually a paint so it will go on top of the old surface.
The option I started using in 2007 was a product called synthetic porcelain. The process involves a non acid etching of the old surface, a chemical cleaning agent, a molecular bonding agent that is hand rubbed into the microscopic scratches created through etching. It will then have (7) coats or layers of synthetic porcelain applied using a system called an H.V.L.P. sprayer. This is a fine finish applicator that uses only (2) pounds of air pressure to gently lay the coatings down without blemishes. The refinished surface is ready for use the following day in most cases.
The savings that are realized over bathtub replacement is about 80% versus replacement. The cost of replacing a bathtub does not come from the cost of the bathtub itself. The bathtub has a lip on it that goes under the tile. So to replace a bathtub will mean removal or breakage of usually 2 rows of tile. Finding the color of replacement tile is usually not an easy task. Then please keep in mind the bathtub is installed before the finish carpentry is completed. So to get the old tub out of the door or down the hall and a new tub in may require widening doors. It is not unusual for a bathtub replacement to cost $3000 and up. Depending on the job. Refinishing the old bathtub is a very cost efficient way to make your bathtub and or tile look new again!

Another blessed day today. I met a great guy that needed to get a bathtub and tile surround refinished in Dallas. The home had set vacant for a while but the Gentleman was so nice I had no issue with doing a little extra work to get the bathtub and tile cleaned up. Before the refinishing process could begin.
I absolutely love it when I meet someone that I have so much in common with and there is an instant trust level and it is just understood that he was trying to get the home ready for sale and needed some extra help. After I finished the work, I ended up talking to him for about an hour. He installed weapon racks into police units and I found that to be very interesting because I am a gun buff anyway! We talked about the different weapons we carry and own and he took me out to his truck and showed me an AR-15 that he had painted himself and it looked awesome! When projects go like this it feels so comfortable because it is like working for a longtime friend.

Make your Bathtub look new again for the new year!
It's always great to start the new year off with something healthy. However, we sometimes forget about the hidden dangers in our own home. Most of us know that if your home was built befor 1979 it may contain paint that contains lead. However, most of us are not aware that porcelain bathtubs may be leaching high levels of lead into your bath water!
Don't worry! There is an easy and relatively inexpensive fix. Having your bathtub refinished seals off the worn glaze that causes the lead to leach into your bathtub.
With bathtub, tile, shower refinishing in Dallas you can actually keep your existing structure, not have to deal with any construction mess and 99% of all jobs can be completed in 1 day!
This is not the out dated epoxy paint method of simply painting your bathtub. Todays bathtub refinishing using the Fusion Finish process incorporates etching techniques, molecular bonding solutions and a synthetic porcelain top coat. This allows the synthetic porcelain to chemically weld into the old surface, not simply painted on top of the old surface.

The stone fleck coatings have come a long way since the multi speck coatings of years ago. The coating is now pre mixed and has the consistency of pudding, very thick. It is applied with a very low pressure HVLP applicator and as you will see in the video below offers great coverage and is a very affordable alternative to replacement.

I have been blessed once again! This young Lady was so nice. I removed the Shower doors for her at no charge so she could put a shower rod up. She thought she was going to need me to refinish the Kitchen Counter tops but I told her how to clean them and polish them up so she was able to save a few hundred dollars. I re caulked the kitchen for her at n/c. I just thoroughly enjoyed working in her home and we talked like a couple of old friends as we worked on this Home getting it ready to sell. We were going to do the Vanity in White. However, I showed her how good it would look in beige and since I had the color I was able to do it at no extra charge.
