How Much Will It Cost to Refinish a Bathtub?
What Are Typical Tub Reglazing Costs?
There are companies that charge $250-300 for a bathtub restoration. However, they use the method of spraying, which we have covered above. Keep in mind, the spray will stay for only a year or two, and sometimes even 3-6 months. After a short period of time, your bath will flake off again and you will have to repeat the bath restoration all over again. Consequently, you will waste your money and time, and not even enjoy your own bathtub. If you are planning to live in your apartment for more than 1-2 years, you will save at least $140-$190 with us by using our efficient method of coating. An additional bonus is that the material is odorless and there will not be any toxic fumes. It is completely safe for your family.
Why Such A Price?
"What am I paying for?" and "What does the price include?" - you may ask.
Yes, you are asking very good questions, because we have to know what we are paying for.
Here are the answers to your questions.
What Am I Paying For?
You are paying for the best quality!
What is the best quality? It is professionally performed work and high-quality material that we use in our work. It has been proven that the enamel we use is absolutely safe and does not contain toxic and hazardous odors and vapors. Despite this, our material is very durable and waterproof which gives you an amazing result: a durable and stable bathtub coating that will last for 10-15 years. Your bathtub will look like a new one, moreover, it will have a beautiful glossy layer, which is completely safe for you and your family.
What Is Included In The Price?
Our work starts with removing the old silicone layer from your bath. If there is damage, rust, and destruction, we fix them all. We wash the bath thoroughly with several stages. This step is really very important! Next, we dry and degrease the surface of the bath. And the last step is to cover the bathtub with liquid enamel. This technique requires experience and skill. The whole process of work takes 3-4 hours. If your bathtub was previously restored with low-quality material and is peeling now, then the first thing we do is to remove the peeling coating as much as possible and grind the bathtub to achieve an even coating in the future.
You Will Save Money With Us. How?
Earlier, we talked about ways to update and renovate your bathtub.
Here I want to highlight two main methods, which are used on the market most often nowadays:
- Bathtub restoration by spraying paint onto the bathtub surface.
- Pouring method - coating the bathtub surface with liquid enamel.
Let's talk about the financial difference between these methods.
1. Spray: Today, the cost of this service varies somewhere between $250-$400
This method of refurbishing the bathtub will stay for 3-5 years if the work is done by a professional. In the worst case, it will stay 3-6 months. This coating technique is thin and not shockproof. If you accidentally drop a bottle of shampoo, it can damage the surface and cause the surface to peel off. Alternatively, the surface will exfoliate where the water and soap accumulate, such as the corners of the tub, or near the drain.
Let's calculate: you will pay $250 for the service and a year later, the coating will begin to peel off and you will have to pay another $250 for renovation (or possibly even more, as most companies charge additional fees for removing the flaking coating). The total is already around $500-$550. After a year or two, the same problem will knock on your door again. What’s more, you will be sniffing toxic fumes that are very harmful to your health.
2. Pouring method. The cost of this service varies somewhere between $450-$495
The life of this service is 10-15 years, of course, with proper care (whiteness and abrasive cleaning products cannot be used). The coating is 10 times thicker than conventional spray. It is shockproof and waterproof.
Let's calculate one more time: you will pay $450 for the service. And that's it! You will forget about your peeling bathtub for at least 5 years, but in fact for the next 10-15 years.
Conclusion: If you take into consideration the service life of 4 years, you will save $140-$190 (and much more if there is more than one bath). If you own several apartments, then you will no longer have a headache from thinking about this problem. An additional bonus is that the material is odorless and there will not be any toxic fumes. It is completely safe for your family, animals, children, and the elderly.
No one wants to go back to the same problem again and again, right? No one wants to see strangers fixing their own bathtubs over and over, right?
