How long does the finish last?
Following the proper care and maintenance recommendations we provide you may reasonably expect 10-20 years from our finishes.
How long does it take?
Every job is unique but depending on its condition the average job is completed usually within 4-6 hours.
What should I do before you come?
Please remove all items from the bathroom and clear the countertop. Also make sure the plumbing has no drips or plumbing concerns.
How long do I have to wait before I can use my refinished bathtub?
It is best to wait at least 36 hours… but ask your technician about our ‘quick’ cure if you need it back in service sooner!
Does it have a smell?
Unfortunately…yes. We take extreme precautions to minimize the smell from the materials. Residual odors should fade and dissipate fully within 24 hours.
We tried painting it ourselves or had another company ‘sell’ us on a cheap price and now its peeling?
We will need to strip it down to the original surface and start from scratch. The additional charges are based on the extra time required for the stripping process and that can sometimes take up to an additional 3 hours for the process.
Can a non-skid be added into the finish?
Yes we offer a textured non-slip bottom as an accessory to the refinishing process. The texture aids in the prevention of slipping, and blends in nearly unnoticeable. Please ask us about this when you book your appointment.
Can you re-caulk around my bathtub?
Yes and we recommend it. Some tubs are grouted in and do not need re-caulking and fiberglass fixtures with built in surrounds do not require re-caulking. We use a premium acrylic latex mo ld resistance high gloss caulk. Be aware caulking a gap larger than 3/8 inch should probably be re-grouted; caulking a gap that large can show shrinkage after a month or so.
How do I maintain my new finish?
We provide you with maintenance instructions of what is best to use to clean and help protect your new finish. Keep in mind it will always be best to use a foam cleaner and avoid abrasive cleansers.
How long is your warranty?
We offer an industry leading warranty of one (1) year. The warranty covers all material failure or manufacturing defects not caused by the customer by mistreatment of the refinished surface. * Beware of companies offering full coverage warranties longer than one year, chances are they are not planning on remaining in business long enough to honor it!
