FAQs

How much will I save with bathtub refinishing as opposed to replacement?

Refinishing your bathtub with Advanced Resurfacing will save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars over bathtub replacement. While a brand new bathtub may only cost $300, there can often be several hidden costs to replacement such as removal and disposal cost, plumbing alterations, and tile work. These costs add up, and you can easily end up spending nearly $2,500 to replace your bathtub. The cost of refinishing varies depending on the size of your tub.

How long does the bathtub refinishing process take?

Our refinishing process typically only takes 3-4hours to complete. Your bathtub will usually be ready within another 4-5 hours after that, depending on factors like ambient temperatures and humidity. Why wait days or even weeks for a contractor to replace your bathtub when you can get the same results in only 8-10 hours?

How long will my bathtub last?

The durability of a bathtub refinished by Advanced Resurfacing is very similar to that of a brand new bathtub. If properly maintained and no abrasive chemicals are used for cleaning it will last you many years just as a brand new bathtub would.

How do I care for and clean my refinished bathtub?

Refinished bathtubs are often easier to clean than the original product. Make sure you use mild, non-abrasive cleaning products. Just as with a new bathtub, the finish or shine can be dulled by abrasive cleaners.

Will my refinished bathtub look like it has been painted?

Absolutely not. Your bathtub will not look like it was painted, since the material we use is an industrial high solids coating, manufactured specifically for bathtubs, not a paint. In fact, our technicians pride themselves on the fact that it is quite difficult for an untrained eye to tell the difference between a brand new bathtub and one that has been refinished by Advanced Resurfacing.

Will my refinished bathtub smell like it has been painted?

Our technicians come equipped with full ventilation systems to expunge the fumes that do naturally occur with the use of solvents. Although you may notice a slight odor after we are finished, this typically is gone in a few hours.

How does Advanced Resurfacing process differ from other competitors?

Some refinishing companies take "short-cuts" and like to skip the etching and priming stages of the refinishing process. Industry wide studies and laboratory testing have shown that etching is a critical step in the process in order to maximize adhesion and give the finished product the longest-lasting durability possible. Plus, our molecular bonding process has the most proven track record in the industry.

What is acid etching?

Etching porcelain to maximize adhesion is an integral part of the successful refinishing process and provides superior service life for your refinished fixtures. Some companies promote an "acid free" process as a marketing tool, portraying etching as unsafe. Advanced Resurfacing finishes employs a stabilized etching solution that becomes neutralized during the cleaning process and will not harm any surrounding surfaces.

Can you refinish a tub that has been already refinished?

Yes, a tub that has been refinished before can be refinished again. Advanced Resurfacing will strip and clean the tub before we refinish it so the old coatings are removed.

A tub that has been lined, can you refinish?

A tub that has liners over it can be refinished. Advanced Resurfacing will remove the liner and then refinish the original bathtub.
