BATHROOM REFINISHING PROCESS
Most of the existing beads of caulk from the perimeter of the fixture are removed prior to starting any refinishing work.
Sanding and Cleaning
Next, we’ll prepare the surface for the glazing by sanding and cleaning the fixture. Any surface that was previously refinished will need some additional work to strip the fixture of this coating, allowing the new glaze to adhere to the fixture.
Any surface areas next to the areas that’ll be refinished are carefully taped and prepared to ensure they’re covered during the process.
Throughout the reglazing process, we use a high-quality exhaust unit to keep the air in your home safe and remove residual odors and vapors. People and pets sensitive to solvents or paint fumes should stay out of the immediate area for up to 24 hours.
A bonding agent is applied to the fixture to bond the new finish onto the prepared surface. This step is crucial for durable adhesion when we refinish, especially when the fixture is made from tile and porcelain. Our bonding process has proven to be reliable and has been our go-to method for over 15 years!
Painting is the final step of the process and the one that adheres to the new finish to your bathtub. Two coats of primer are used initially, and then three coats of acrylic urethane are applied. Drying time is required between coats. You’ll be able to use your bathtub 24 – 48 hours after the refinishing job is complete.
