What a Tough day I had last week! I had a bathtub refinishing project that had been painted with Epoxy by another company and was bubbled up, peeling, it was in bad shape. The customer was very distraught and honestly did not know what to do.
She had hired some painting done in her home and the painters said they could paint her bathtub for $150. She did not know any better and truthfully they probably did not know any better either. I think it was an honest mistake with a painter trying to bring in some extra money and they did not realize bathtub painting is not the same thing as bathtub refinishing.
The first picture is the Paint I peeled and stripped off the bathtub. The second picture being the refinished bathtub. Notice how yellow the epoxy paint was compared to the synthetic porcelain. This was only 4 weeks old. The epoxy will yellow will bleach is used to clean the bathtub. Synthetic porcelain will not. I thanked the homeowners for allowing me to not only refinish the bathtub correctly for them but for being truly interested in learning why the paint did not work. It was as simple as paint goes on top of the old surface, synthetic porcelain is chemically welded into the old surface through a synergistic approach. No one step alone will produce favorable results. However, together each step both prepares and builds strength for the following step in a synergistic approach.
Bathtub Refinishing Dallas
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I certainly am thankful for my customers and family! It is now after 3pm on 11/25/2016 and I'm still full from yesterday!
I was called out today to refinishing a bathtub in the Dallas area that somebody else had refinished but would not come back out to fix.
So I took care of it for the homeowner and They had another bathtub they wanted refinished so I was able to fix the first bathtub at no charge for them.
Also a lot of other ares in side the tub that had runs and drips. It was a fairly easy fix and I was glad I could do it for them. Below is the second bathtub they wanted refinished.
Today was the first day I was actually cold at work!
I met a wonderful Lady out by Firewheel Mall in Garland she had a crack in her Cultured Marble bathtub and it was about 2ft long and had another crack coming up the side. Because cultured marble is crushed limestone and fiberglass resin I was able to etch the surface, then applied the molecular bonding agent followed by a fiberglass resin injected into the cracks. This was then cured with heat. Followed by additional molecular bonding agent and then topped with synthetic porcelain. She was very appreciative of the work and I too appreciated having the work! (That is a win, win situation :) ) I posted a couple of pictures below and by taking advantage of my November Special she was able to save over $200.00!
