adjacent surfaces will be taped or covered.

deep scratches are then repaired and the tub is sanded and
The tub is then given a treatment of a propriety bonding agent
to ensure adhesion of the primer.
The tub is then primed with a special base coat. The tub
receives two coats of primer.
The tub is then spray coated with the aliphatic acrylic urethane
using special HVLP spray equipment. Two to three finish coats of
acrylic urethane are applied.

is cleaned with a cloth and warm soapy water. This will
remove any overspray that may feel like a fine grit. This is
normal and will wash away. A slight odor of the finish

the tub. This odor will dissipate after a couple of uses.

Bathtub reglazing VS Bathtub liners:
Bathtub liners are pieces of PVC plastic or acrylic that are
molded to the shape of a tub, placed over your existing tub
and glued down to cover it up. Although most are fairly
durable, they may not be your best option.
Bathtub liners usually cost between $1500.00 to up over
$4000.00 The lead time for a tub liner can be weeks or even
months. A salesman must first come to your home to have you
sign a contract; usually an up front fee is required.
An installer then comes to make measurements of your tub.
After the liner is ready another appointment is required to
have the liner installed, usually weeks after you signed the
Bathtub liners can fail; the most common problem with liners
is water leaking in between the liner and the tub creating a
squishy feeling. Water buildup can create an environment for
stagnant water, mold and obnoxious odors.
Bathtub liners can also require additional plumbing to
compensate for a thicker tub wall.
Bathtub reglazing offers one day service. That’s it and the
process is applied directly to your tub’s surface so there
is no possibility for unseen problems occurring.
