Why Resurface Your Tub Instead of Replace It?

If you have an outdated bathtub, you may wonder whether to replace or resurface it. Replacing your bathtub is expensive and time-consuming. Resurfacing your bathtub is a cost-effective and efficient solution that can make your tub look and feel like new.

Resurfacing your bathtub involves applying a new coat to the surface of the tub. It eliminates chips, cracks, and stains, and can provides a non-slip surface that improves safety.

Resurfacing your tub is cheaper than replacing your tub, which includes removal and installation costs. Resurfacing also has eco-friendly benefits as it reduces the amount of waste that would be generated by replacing your tub.

Bathtub Resurfacing FAQs

What is the Difference Between Refinishing and Reglazing a Bathtub?

These terms are used interchangeably often in our industry. Simply put, reglazing, refinishing, or resurfacing is a process where we apply our glaze or coating to the outermost layer of the tub. 

How Long Does it Take a Bathtub Reglazing Project to Fully Cure?

The professionals at Surface Solutions recommend letting the bathtub surface cure for 24 hours minimum, and making sure that the space is properly ventilated and/or temperature controlled. Depending on the air conditions, it could take longer so please be sure to consult with your reglazing professional for an accurate timeline. Once the tub surface has fully dried, it is safe to use once again. To find out the exact drying time, you should ask the reglazing professional.

How Long Will My Bathtub Reglazing Project Last Before I Need to Reapply?

It is estimated, on average, that most DIY reglazing projects will last only a couple months once application is complete. However, hiring the professionals at Surface Solutions to reglaze your bathtub with a standard tub reglazing project can extend the life of your tub for up to 15 years!

What is the Best Material for a Bathtub?

Professionals use an acrylic polyurethane to reglaze a bathtub. It’s durable and provides a clean looking finish to your tub.
