How do I care for my finish?
We will leave you with a full set of printed instructions for care of your newly refinished bathtub or other fixture. A few important points to remember are that during the first 7-10 days, the finish is still curing, so it is best to take special care during this period and keep use to a minimum. Going forward, it will be best to clean your tub lightly, but in greater frequency. For example, clean lightly a couple times per week, instead of waiting for a month when only hard scrubbing will remove the inevitable build-up. Additionally, soap scum and other residue can trap water beneath it on the surface, and over time deteriorate the finish. Use only non-abrasive and non-corrosive cleaning products. Please avoid storing soap and other items directly on the surface, use a rack of some sort. Any standing water can deteriorate this finish and your bathtub (this is, in fact, often a reason that we are called in to refinish a bathtub). Any leaky faucets should be repaired by a qualified professional ASAP. The caulk seal around your tub should be water tight and maintained. If there is ever any break or holes in your caulk, they should be sealed immediately so as to avoid water getting around the side of the tub and possibly between the tub and the new finish.
Bathtub Refinishing Services In Ann Arbor
We can refinish your standard bathtub for your aesthetic pleasure, or to match a new color scheme. Many realtors and home appraisers will agree that a white bathtub and tile scheme will add value to not only your bathroom, but your home in general! If your bathtub is approximately 60 in. x 30 in., with one or more sides against a wall, it is considered to be "standard". This is the most common type of tub, but no matter your size or type, we guarantee we can help!
Steps Taken to Refinish a Bathtub
The bathtub is scrubbed clean with a powerful detergent that will remove any soap film build-up or residual film left behind by household cleaners.
The tub is rinsed and dried completely to remove all moisture.
Paper masking is installed around the tub to prevent overspray from getting on the tiles. Other areas of the bathroom will be masked off with plastic if necessary.
Bonding agent is applied to the surface of the tub.
High Gloss Acrylic Urethane topcoat is applied
During our resurfacing process, a ventilator is used which helps remove overspray and fumes from the bathroom area. It pulls the air from the room and with it the overspray and dust particles. This piece of equipment is placed in the window of the bathroom, or if there is no window in the bathroom, a hose is attached and directed to the nearest window or door. All materials are applied using an HVLP spray system.

Hello, I just wanted to let you know that we are extremely satisfied with the work Surface Solutions did on our tub this week. The technician arrived promptly, was courteous and professional and kept the area clean as he worked. I am really thrilled with the results - the old green tub looks great now that it's bright white!!Dan Laferte
