Considering bathroom remodeling? Consider having your bathtub refinished for a fraction of the cost.

The majority of my clients replace their tile first then have me come in to refinish or even just clean their tub. Saving them the headache and expense of replacing the tub.

Servicing Fairfield County and surrounding areas. I specialize in refinishing cast iron bathtubs.

I don’t refinish sinks, toilets or jacuzzi’s (due to the jets) No longer refinishing tile due to issues with old failing backer boards and grout issues.

Sinks and toilets just replace. Not cost-effective. The same setup is required to refinish a sink as a tub therefore I suggest in most cases you just swap it out.

I also professionally clean bathtubs as well. A lot of times a professional cleaning is all it needs. I don’t sugarcoat things.

Refinishing Versus Liner

Five Reasons of many Why Not to Consider a Bathtub or Shower Liner.

  • 1) A Cover-Up, Not a Solution
    Liners cover up underlying problems instead of fixing them. The moisture in bathrooms can create mold and even eat away at structural elements which need to be replaced.
  • 2) Trapped Water
    Possibility of water getting trapped between liner and tub, creating mold and mildew.

  • 3) Hollow Feeling
    Liners may feel “spongey” or less than stable under foot.
  • 4) Pricey
    Liners are a lot more expensive than refinishing. I’ve heard of recent quotes of $2000.00 just to cover the tub. Don’t take my word for it. Get an estimate yourself. If I’m wrong please let me know. I usually can refinish a tub for less than half that amount. Leaving you with the look and feel of the original cast iron tub.

  • 5) Reduced dimensions
    Because you are adding material, your bathtub will become smaller.

Refinishing versus replacing your existing bathtub. Replacement tubs are generally made of cheaper quality than the original. (Fiberglass tubs do not hold the heat like a cast iron tub)

The refinishing process takes hours versus weeks. Additionally, The cost of refinishing is a fraction of replacing.

Picture of tub after having a liner pulled out. Notice all the lovely back glue all over the place.

Could of had it refinished in the first place for a whole lot less money.

If you call a competitor ask them the following questions.

  • Who does the actual refinishing work. Is it the owner himself? How long in this business?
  • How many refinishes do they do in a day? I do just 1 – Yours.
  • How much time do they spend on your tub. 1,2,3,hrs? I average 5 hours sometimes more.
  • What bonding agent is used if any?
  • Licensed, Insured, Certified (Proper schooling) Are they well-rated with the BBB? I’m an A+ rated Refinisher Living in Fairfield County. A competitor claims to be rated #1 by the “National Association of Bathtub Refinishers”. Try to look them up. I can’t find any such thing. Just saying….

If all you care about is the lowest price you may not be doing yourself justice.

  • Remember you get what you pay for. What good is it if you hire someone solely based on price and within an hour or two he is leaving to the next job. (I schedule just your Refinish). I wonder what steps where skipped. a) Proper cleaning? b) Applying a proper bonding agent? c) Properly masking off d) Is he even legit? If you are paying very low they have to skimp on something and are probably rushing to get to the next job.

What good is paying $300.00 to someone to refinish your tub only to turn around and have to pay another $600.00 just to have it stripped off soon down the road.
