If you are considering having your bathtub, tile, shower refinished please keep in mind the new coating will need time to bond to the old surface. In most cases this occurs in about 24 hours.
The most common complaint with bathtub refinishing is actually a complaint that has everything to do with the customer and not the refinished fixture. For example, it will look and feel dry after about 2 hours but that does not mean it is ready to use. The bonding process has not occurred yet. So when the cold, then hot then warm water hits the surface it simply changed the temperature and causes an issue with the bonding. This will result in bubbles and lifting away of the new surface.
It makes it really easy to tell when a surface has been used to soon.
However, if you consider the savings of the refinished fixture versus the replacement cost you will see an average savings of about 75%. Plus you eliminate the need for multiple strangers moving throughout your home and instead of taking weeks with a bunch of dust and noise, it takes about 2 to 3 hours and can usually be used 24 hours after completion.
Bathtub Refinishing has changed ten fold over the past 5 -7 years. This change has resulted in coatings that can bond and penetrate the old bathtub, tile or shower surface and give new life to old or worn out bathtubs and fixtures such as tile, porcelain, fiberglass, plastic, cultured marble and many other surfaces found around the home.
