If you’re considering reglazing your bathtub, you want to make sure that you’re making a good investment. After all, no one wants to spend the money on a home project they have to redo in a year or two—or, worse, spend money on a project that makes the problem worse. The good news is that reglazing with a professional can be a great move to improve the look and function of your bathroom.
If you’re thinking about reglazing a bathtub, pros and cons might be where you started your deliberation. A renovation, while it can rearrange the elements of the room, is expensive and takes a long time. Though reglazing can’t give you a new bathroom, it can give your existing bathroom a whole new look and make it feel cleaner and more functional, without the extra cost. While bigger projects might require giving up your bathroom for days, reglazing takes three to four hours, plus another four hours before you can use the tub.
And there is great news for those wondering if reglazing can repair bathtub cracks: during reglazing, we can fix a variety of problems, including cracks, chips, rust, scratches, pits, and discoloration. This is one of the main reasons homeowners might choose this process at all.
But you might still be wondering--how long does bathtub reglazing last? This cost-efficient and quick update seems almost too good to be true—just a day to bring a retro pink bathroom to the modern era? A repaired tub without the cost of a renovation?—but the good news is that with proper care, a properly reglazed bathtub can last as long as a brand-new tub. That can be fifteen to twenty years!
If you’ve had an experience with another company and the glaze on the tub has started to peel quickly, this means that something went wrong—maybe the tub got wet too early, or maybe the contractor took shortcuts. If the tub surface wasn’t stripped properly, the new glaze might not bond strongly and may start to chip.
Our factory-trained technicians are meticulous in preparation of the surface to give you the best results possible, and we provide a written warranty. Be warned that a DIY kit—no matter what it says—won’t last as long as a reglazing by a professional.
Even if you feel confident in your ability to ventilate the bathroom, strip the tub, work with the chemicals, and repair any damage, the end result will likely fail within a month or two. The materials aren’t the same as those available to professionals, and your end result will likely have brush marks in the finish.
