All About Bathtub Re-Glazing....
During the re-glazing process, our technician will apply special chemicals to etch the surface of your bathtub. Next, primer adhesive is applied to the dull or porous surface, preparing it for the application of the glaze. We use a special poly-urethane glaze with an integrated glass bead. This is applied with an automotive-style spray gun. Timing is critical for all stages of the process and our technicians are well-trained. All of this guarantees that you will be satisfied with the beautiful, glossy finish of your bathtub.
There is no need to leave home during the process. Our technician will set up an exhaust fan in a nearby window to expel fumes and over spray. Any residual odor will disapate within a few short hours after we leave.
What to clean it with ....
Caring for a reglazed bathtub involves no hard work. In fact, you will find it much easier to keep it cleaner than before. You will be given a Care Tips Prescription Card detailing what chemicals and cleaners not to use. Simply stated, you shouldn't use anything gritty. A liquid cleaner applied with a nylon mesh ball will keep the finish shiny and looking new for years to come.
Smooth, Shiny and Slick!
After re-glazing of your bathtub, you will find the surface very shiny and also quite slippery when wet. You may be tempted to put down a bathmat. Please note that a suction cup type mat will damage the finish and the use will void the warranty. Tub Doctor Inc can install a slip proof texturing on the bottom of the bathtub during the re-glazing process. This permanent finish will add stability to the bather without damaging the newly glazed surface.
How long will it last?
With proper care, a re-glazed bathtub will stay shiny and new looking for many years. Every bathtub we re-glaze carries a ten year warranty. This warranty guarantees the performance of the materials used.
Of course, as with any painted or re-glazed surface, chipping may occur when heavy objects are accidentally dropped onto the surface. This type of damage should be repaired as soon as possible so as to avoid compromising the durability of the coating. Tub Doctor Inc will be glad to repair such damage for a reasonable charge.
