Porcelain bathtub refinishing is an excellent way to transform an icky bathtub. Many people want to have a relaxing bath waiting for them at the end of a long workday. As you soak in your bath and bathe in your aromatic soap, the stresses of the day go down the drain along with the water. Unfortunately, it is difficult to make this scenario a reality when the bathtub has cracks, mold and mildew all over it.
This is one reason why bathtub refinishing is the most obvious choice. There are some who decide to replace the tub, but this is a costly expense. Why replace the bathtub when you can hire a professional contractor to complete a porcelain bathtub refinishing project and breathe life back into your bathroom?
Porcelain Bathtub Refinishing: The Process
The process to refinish a bathtub is not complex, and it is much less expensive than replacing the tub. The tub will not have to be removed from the bathroom, and no major repairs will be needed. Instead a new lining is placed in the tub. Only the surface of the tub is resurfaced in order to rid the tub of chips and stains.
Acrylic is the material that is commonly used to refinish bathtubs. Most bathtubs are made from porcelain, and acrylic can help make the tub look as good as new. Acrylic is also resistant to scratches and is also durable. These are some of the reasons why it is a logical choice for bathtub refinishing.
How Does The Process Work?
The dimensions of the bathtub will need to be measured because the liner must match the size of the tub exactly. If not, it will be almost impossible to install the lining. After the measurements are made, manufacturing of the liner will begin. The good news is the actual installation can be completed in one day in most cases.
The majority of homeowners opts of out the DIY option and chooses to hire a professional contractor for their porcelain bathtub refinishing task. By hiring a contractor, you will be assured that the job will be completed correctly. It is an affordable option for those who do not want to replace their bathtub.
