What is bathtub refinishing?

Refinishing a bathtub, also known as reglazing, takes only a few hours, and imparts a brand new surface on the original bathtub, without removal. The result is a bathtub with brand new, shiny clean, durable, and high gloss surface in any color the customer chooses.

Will my refinished bathtub look like it has been painted?

This is a common myth in the bathtub refinishing industry. Your bathtub will not look like it was painted, since the material we use is more like a coating than 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 All About Kitchen and Bath LLC.

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, abrasive cleaners can dull the finish or shine.

What are the benefits of bathtub refinishing over replacement?

The result is a bathtub with a brand new, shiny, clean, durable, and high gloss surface in any color the customer chooses. Bathtub refinishing allows customers to design any style bathroom in any color scheme, without having to choose colors based on the original bathtub, sink, or toilet color. Ceramic tile can be repaired and resurfaced as well, allowing for complete bathroom color changes in a matter of hours, without disrupting the walls, plumbing or electrical work inside of a bathroom.

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

Refinishing your bathtub with All About Kitchen and Bath LLC 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.

What surfaces can refinishing be performed on? Who can use your services?

The kitchen and bath refinishing industry provides a durable, economical service to homeowners, hotel operators, and apartment complexes; the refinishing of bathtubs, tile, countertops, sinks and vanities, and major appliances. All of these things can become scratched, dull, or have outdated colors, yet still be structurally sound and working.

What colors do All About Kitchen and Bath LLC offer?

How does All About Kitchen and Bath LLC refinishing process differ from other competitors?

Some refinishing companies take "shortcuts" 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. In addition, our primer and prep process has the most proven track record in the industry.

What is the difference between bathtub refinishing and bathtub liners?

Unlike our bathtub refinishing process, which is done on-site and in one day, bathtub liners are manufactured off-site as one-piece, heat-molded units that are inserted over your original bathtub or shower surface and then "glued" in place with adhesive caulk. Bathtub liners leave spaces between the liner and the original surface where moisture can condense and stagnate. Cracks in the liner can occur, releasing moisture and lead to unsanitary conditions. With our bonding and etching process, the new finish, through a molecular bonding action, becomes a permanent part of the old fixture.
