Hiring a Professional for Bathtub Refinishing

When your bathtub starts to age, instead of replacing it, you can refinish it and add a few more years of life to it. Refinishing a bathtub takes too much time if you have to do it yourself. There are also some limitations. It requires skills and tools to produce pro-level finishes. Here are a few good reasons on why you should consider hiring a professional for bathtub refinishing.

  • Hiring a professional saves you time.
  • Bathtub refinishing is a difficult job with uncertain results. When you refinish the bathtub yourself, it may not be as good as when experienced professionals do it.
  • Hiring a professional also spares you the DIY-disaster that you may end up with.
  • It involves head-to-toe coverall suits, HEPA air filters, and industrial paint sprayers.
  • The process includes, cleaning of bathtub and removing any caulking, removing fixtures and overflow covers, light sand and vacuuming, possible acid etching, ventilated to outside, spray-paint up to 3 coats of a primer, spray-painting 3-4 layers of top coat mixture, etc.
  • Professionals can match any existing color or whip up a new color for the bathtub.
  • It takes 3 to 5 hours for the process, with the bathtub ready for use within 24 hours.
  • If you don’t prep the surface adequately, the longevity of your finished job will be highly compromised. Professionals can do a better surface preparation, like avoiding fumes and mess.
  • It guarantees good results. It looks excellent and the quality rivals that of a new tub’s surface.

Factors to Consider Before Hiring a Professional for Your Bathtub Refinishing

  • It is very important to hire professionals who have experience and will ensure quality.
  • Ask for the safety precautions they take. Since the refinishers will come to your home, make sure they have a plan to deal with the toxic fumes to protect you or anyone else who will be in the house.
  • Hiring someone who has never refinished a bathtub might not be the wisest choice. A bathtub refinishing job, when done properly is predicted to last 5 years or more.
