Bathtub Refinishing

Bathtub refinishing, also known as reglazing, takes only a few hours, and imparts a brand new surface on the original bathtub, without removal. The result is a bathtub which has a brand new, shiny clean, durable, high gloss surface in any color our customer chooses. This allows our customers to design any style bathroom in any color scheme, without having to choose colors based on the original bathtub, sink, or toilet color. Ceramic tile can be repaired and resurfaced as well, allowing for complete bathroom color changes in a matter of hours, without disrupting the walls, plumbing or electrical work inside of a bathroom. Bathtub refinishing can be performed on porcelain, fiberglass and acrylic.
