Considering bathroom remodeling? Consider having your bathtub
refinished for a fraction of the cost.

The majority of my clients replace their tile first then have me come
in to refinish or even just clean their tub. Saving them the headache
and expense of replacing the tub.

Refinishing versus liner.

Five Reasons of many Why Not to Consider a Bathtub or Shower
Liner.

1) A Cover-Up, Not a Solution

Liners cover up underlying problems instead of fixing them. The
moisture in bathrooms can create mold and even eat away at
structural elements which need to be replaced.

2) Trapped Water

Possibility of water getting trapped between liner and tub, creating
mold and mildew.

3) Hollow Feeling

Liners may feel "spongey" or less than stable under foot.

4) Pricey

Liners are a lot more expensive than refinishing. I've heard of recent
quotes of $2000.00
just to cover the tub. Don't take my word for it.
Get an estimate yourself. If I'm wrong please let me know.

I usually can refinish a tub for less than half that amount. Leaving
you with the look and feel of the original cast iron tub.

5) Reduced dimensions
Because you are adding material, your bathtub will become smaller.

Refinishing versus replacing your existing bathtub.

Replacement tubs are generally made of cheaper quality than the
original. (Fiberglass tubs do not hold the heat like a cast iron tub)

The refinishing process takes hours versus weeks.  Additionally,  
The cost of refinishing is a fraction of replacing.

TUB THAT WAS COVERED WITH PLASTIC LINER
Picture of tub after having a liner pulled out. Notice all the lovely
back glue all over the place.

Could of had it refinished in the first place for a whole lot less
money.
If you call a competitor ask them these following questions.
Is their coating rated for submersion?
Who does the actual refinishing work. Is it the owner himself? How long in this business?
How many refinishes do they do in a day? I do just 1 - Yours.
How much time do they spend on your tub. 1,2,3,hrs. I average 5 hours sometimes more.
What bonding agent is used if any?
Do they bring
Hydrochloric Acid into your home? I sure would not want that spilled anywhere.
Licenced, Insured, Certified (Proper schooling)
Are they a well rated with the
BBB?   I'm an A+ rated Refinisher Living in Fairfield  County.
A competitor claims to be rated #1 by the "National Association of Bathtub Refinishers".
Try to look them up. I can't find any such thing. Just saying....
If all you care about is the lowest price you may not be doing yourself justice.

Remember you get what you pay for.  What good is it if you hire someone solely
based on price and within an hour or two he is leaving to the next job. (I schedule
just your Refinish). I wonder what steps where skipped. a) Proper cleaning? b)
Applying a proper bonding agent? c) Properly masking off d) Is he even legit??
If you are paying very low they have to skimp on something and are probably
rushing to get to the next job.

What good is paying $300.00 to someone to refinish your tub only to turn around
and have to pay another $600.00 just to have it stripped off soon down the road.

This is a post from a customer who I did a tub for.

"This was one of those "why isn't everyone like this?" experiences.
Gary answered my call right away, was very friendly and
knowledgeable on the phone, and we set up an appointment for 3
days later. The information I received was thorough, and his website is
even more thorough.
He arrived promptly at 8:30am and went right to work. Everything was
taped, covered, protected by plastic. I didn't see what he was doing,
but I know that the tub (which was already clean) was scraped and
cleaned immaculately. Every detail was addressed. Gary even took
the time to discuss shades of white with me - in order to match the
existing toilet and sink - which I really appreciated.
The work was done by about noon and all the materials, including the
plastic sheeting, were removed. The bathroom was as immaculate as
before he arrived. The tub looked brand new - and the shade of white
he had chosen was perfect.
But Gary even went above and beyond the call of duty. In closing
doors to protect rooms from the fumes (which are exhausted through
an elaborate system, but some smell remains for awhile) I
inadvertently locked the one to my office. Everything was in there: my
car keys, pocketbook, cell phone, etc. Gary used his smart phone to
find an emergency locksmith for me. And, because my husband was
out of town, he also came back the next day to re-attach the overflow
valve."

I specialize in refinishing cast iron bathtubs.


I don't refinish sinks, toliets or jacuzzi's (due to the jets)
No longer refinishing tile due to issues with old failing backer boards and
grout issues.

Sinks and toilets just replace. Not cost effective. The same set up is required
to refinish a sink as a tub therefore I suggest in most cases you just swap it
out.


I also professionally clean bathtubs as well.  A lot of times a professional
cleaning is all it needs. I don't sugar coat things.


Below is a before and after of a tub "cleaned" by me. Not Refinished.
