Does bathtub refinishing work? It is important to hire the right professional. This is not a DIY project. Chemicals used to harden the finish can prove injurious. Skill is required to lay down a smooth finish. Even factors such as indoor humidity and the texture of your bathtub can influence whether the coating adheres. A seasoned pro will have worked past problems associated with these issues. The skill of the practitioner is more important than the products used. There are many fine suppliers of refinishing materials.
Bathtub refinishing is a tricky business, so make sure you check references. Refinishers can be found by doing an internet search on terms like “bathtub refinishers” or “tub reglazing”. It is best to avoid companies that send out technicians. Some firms will hire employees and train them for only a couple of weeks before sending them into the field. It takes several years to perfect the trade. The refinisher you want is the one who has been doing the work himself for at least five years.
Expect to pay between $300-$400.00 to have your tub reglazed. Pricing may vary based on the size of the market in which you live. Most refinishers are offering a five year warranty.
