About Bathtub Rx
Please don’t schedule me on the same day that you are having other work done in the house such as carpentry work, sheetrocking/taping, floor sanding. I am not responsible for dust landing on your tubs finish.
Please clean the bathroom of all dirt and dust. If I refinish the tub, this is a sprayed-on application and you don’t want the dirt, hair, and dust in the tubs finish. Please text pictures of tub to (203) 984-3931 for faster response.
Thinking of what to do? Try having them professionally regrouted. They will look like new without the mess and down time and expense. Then if your tub needs work call me. Some people call me when their tiles look bad asking me to refinish them.
I recommend re-grouting. If backer board is shot I suggest replacing them. I have affiliates that can do that as well.
Being legit and, using good material means it costs me more. I have expenses that other illegal outfits don’t.
I schedule just your tub to refinish for the day. It takes me on average 5 hours to do a tub. I’ve been doing it long enough so I know how long it takes to do it right. Others claim on forums they are in and out in an hour. ???
I also use a bonding agent with fluorescent additive with a black light to make sure the tub is completely covered with it. This is key. If there is missing areas the topcoat can fail.
I am not rushing your tub knowing I have to get to another 2 or 3 to do. I even have affiliates who do this but, I won’t. To do it right it takes time.
I won’t lower my standards just to keep up with the low ballers. Believe me I know what the shortcuts are. However, you won’t till it’s to late. Do other refinishers put their face right up on their website?
Remember “you get what you pay for” Do you really think that you will get a quality job from some unlicensed person coming from out of state. Do you think he’s going to spend 4 hours on the road for the day to do just your tub for cheap. My guess is that he has multiple jobs lined up for the day that he has to do on top of the 4 hour commute. Your’s being only one of them. ( I’ve redone their work ) You may pay less now but you will pay more later.
Bottom line. Hire me for quality and I’m still way less money than a plastic liner (Approx $2000) and if all your tub needs is a cleaning then that’s what I’ll do saving you even more money.
– “Gary is an artist! He was polite, fast, honest, and did a truly beautiful job repairing the areas of our bathtub where duct tape had pulled off the finish. Would hire again or recommend in a heartbeat.”
– “Gary is awesome!! Enough said!! He was extremely prompt on arrival, very upfront with what to expect and what not to expect and overall a great contractor. We had two tubs for a rental unit done. One was completely resurfaced, and the other was seriously cleaned and re-caulked. Honestly, a great job on both tubs”.
How We Work
Before I Arrive
Please make sure the bathroom is cleared out of any loose articles, such as shower curtains, window curtains, rugs, items on counters, etc. Anything that isn’t in a cupboard or drawer, that can be removed from the bathroom should be. I will do any necessary covering of walls and floors.
Access/ Begin Process
Sometimes all that is needed is a professional cleaning however, there are times where the tub is dull and worn. I have a special process that seals the worn areas and brings back the gloss. This is not always an option. If there is a lot of body work for example or of course if it’s a color change.
Please do not use the surface for a full 24 hours. All newly refinished surfaces will have surface dust, which will have settled into the new surface. There is no way to prevent this, as we are not working in a 100 percent dust-free environment.
