Q: Why Refinish, You Might Wonder?
A: Consider all costs, including labor and installation fees, removal and replacement costs, and time and mess associated with bathroom remodeling, when determining the cost of replacement. Refinishing is a terrific substitute because it costs less than 80% less than replacement and increases the value of your home.
Q: How long will the new finish last, one wonders?
A: The lifespan of bathtubs and enclosures should be around ten years with regular maintenance. Due to its substantially lower wear, wall tile can survive much longer. Moreover, bathtub surfaces can be periodically changed.
Q: What is the length of time the bathtub refinishing procedure takes?
A: The same day after the project is finished. It is not possible to install a standard tub or something larger correctly in “1 or 2 hours,” therefore be skeptical of any business making this claim. The span of time between our arrival and departure is what we mean when we talk about the time frame. It will take longer than an hour or two from the moment they come to the time they leave if a single bathtub refinisher uses industry-standard technology and doesn’t take shortcuts.
Q: I recently refinished my surface. How long will I have to wait before using it?
A: Bathtubs and enclosures have a 24-hour usage limit. 72 hours after the last coat has been placed, countertops and floor tiles can be used. If the repaired area is utilized or disturbed before the required cure time, the guarantee is invalid and of no further force and effect.
Q: Any preparations I should make prior to the technician’s arrival?
A: Yes. Before we can refinish, we must fix any leaky faucets, broken tiles, or cracked grout. In addition, the water supply and drainage systems of the tub must be in great operating condition. The room should be cleared of any cleaning materials, including soaps, shampoos, razors, toothbrushes, curtains, shower rods, hanging caddies, and artwork. Any item that can be touched with a finger needs to be taken out. The shower doors and tracks should ideally be removed before we come. Before our arrival, all fixtures that would prevent the tile or tub from being refinished should be removed, including pedestal sinks, toilets, vanities, cabinets, and other similar items. You are invited to vacuum and quickly clean the rooms to keep them hygienic, but it is not necessary. Less surface dust will accumulate on the freshly refinished surface in an environment that is clean.
Q: What makes bathtub reglazing different from bathtub refinishing?
A: No. The process of applying a fresh finish to a hard surface is referred to as bathtub refinishing, bathtub reglazing, tile refinishing, or tile reglazing. This is not the same as applying brand-new porcelain, it should be noted. You require kilns to bake porcelain (oven).
Q: Do I, my family, or my pets run any risk from the procedure?
A: Both people and animals are unharmed by our process. By properly sealing off and ventilating the rooms we’re working in, the scent is used to hide odors. For the first 24 hours, there will still be an odor. You should generally avoid being present when the actual spraying is being done because everyone’s sensitivity levels differ.
Q: Do you provide a warranty with your services?
A: Yes. We offer a three-year warranty against the finishes on walls, tile surrounds, and bathtubs flaking or lifting on their own. Remember that this is not the same as the anticipated lifetime of your finish. With the right maintenance, your finish may last substantially longer, much like a car would outlive its warranty. Damage brought on by above-ground collisions is not covered by our insurance. If a touch-up is required and qualifies under the conditions of this guarantee, it is your responsibility to get in touch with us as soon as possible. We will then complete the project and deliver the materials without charging you any more fees. A service or repair fee will be applied if an issue is not covered by the conditions of this warranty.
Maintenance & Care of a bathtub, a sink, and tilework
- The surface must dry for 24 hours once the treatment is finished.
- After 24 hours, you must exercise caution while removing any paper or masking tape.
- The installation of all hardware, including handles, faucets, drains, and other parts, must be done again within 24 hours.
- Suction-cup bath mats should never be used for any reason! Any suction cup has the potential to damage the surface.
- Never use anything abrasive when cleaning. Only use the cleanser once, then completely trash it. Use only non-bleach cleaning supplies.
- Shampoo, soap, shaving cream, bath oil, and other items shouldn’t be kept on the tub’s edge. The chemical composition of these substances may eventually cause harm to the finish.
- Fixing leaky faucets needs to happen right away. Around drains, dripping water results in early wear and rust formation.
- To protect the completed surface, carefully pour the liquid drain cleaner into the drain while being careful not to spill any of it.
- If you clean the area and utilize it normally for three to four weeks, the majority of the surface dust will go. Avoid using your fingertips to clear surface dust.
