Frequently Asked Questions

Check out our frequently asked questions (FAQ’s). They are the most common questions we’re asked before, during and after any reglazing project. If there’s a question we may have missed, ask us on our contact page.

How much does reglazing cost?

Reglazing (or refinishing) your bathroom, kitchen or floors can cost between $275-$2000 (depending on whether it’s a shower pan, entire bathroom, etc). Please call us at 586-795-9500 or 248-739-6184for an idea right down to the penny.

Will you caulk my tub or tile after your finish reglazing?

As a courtesy to our customers, we do caulking free of charge! However, because this is a courtesy service done in efforts of providing the most complete job possible and is free to our customers, we require all subsequent caulking touch-ups, etc to be done by our customers. Also, all caulking will stain and wear through the months and years as well, therefore we recommend that our customers subsequently replace the caulk as desired.

Do I need to clean my tub and/or tile before it’s reglazed?

We appreciate any preliminary cleaning, we will still have to re-clean with our special cleaners in order to properly prepare for the application of our coating.

Should I remove any fixtures in my bathtub?

In some cases, we will “mask” (cover/protect) areas including the overflow valve, faucet and drain cap, protecting it from any finish. Materials used to “mask” can be removed after the refinishing is complete leaving masked areas undisturbed during the process.

When necessary, we may remove the overflow valve, faucet and drain cap to ensure a good seal on your refinishing project. Although, some plumbing parts may be corroded and break, In such instances, we cannot be held responsible. If these parts break, we can repair at an additional cost.

How long will the reglazing process take?

Generally a tub reglazing may take 2-4 hours. Tub and tile surround (tiles around tub area only) will take 4-6 hours. This does not include any time to remove any old paint from a previous refinish if present.

When I refinish my tub, how many years of life will I get with with proper care?

We tell our customers to expect 15-20 years from the date of our reglazing!

Will my tub or tile looked like it was painted?

Absolutely not. Our finish is applied using an HVLP sprayer and our products looks very smooth and shiny as in the automotive industry. Our professional products look very similar to automotive finishes after it has cured. Many customers can not tell the difference between our finish and a brand new tub!

Can I use a bath-mat?

No, you can not use a bath-mat on any reglazed surfaces. This will damage your tub. We do offer our slip-resistant finish on the bottom on your tub that we can offer as a very good and popular substitute.

Will you fix my chips and cracks in my tub or tile?

We will absolutely do our best towards patching or sanding down any visible chips or cracks. Depending on the severity, our fixes may not result in a “perfectly seamless” look after it is reglazed. However, our technicians are trained to provide the best possible outcomes by “engineering” the best solutions for these conditions.

Can I be present in my home and not be disturbed by fumes?

Absolutely. We’ve found that 99% of our customers have no problems while being present when a refinishing job is being performed. This is so because we deploy heavy duty blower systems that ventilate fumes from the homes of customers and often keep any smells from escaping the work area. Customers are often surprised when comparing our reduced amount of fumes to many of our competitors.

How long after reglazing do I have to wait before it’s dry?

Please allow 24 hours before using the tub or tile areas reglazed before using it.

What should I do to prepare for my reglazing project?

There is not much that we ask for our customers to do. Our job is very convenient and is virtually effortless for our customers. You can however, remove loose objects from the bathroom (or work area), such as tooth brushes, bottles, paintings, shower curtains, soap and towels, so that they will not be exposed during the job.

What are my payment options?

We accept cash, check and any major credit card; such as Visa, Mastercard, Discover or American Express. Please note that for all credit card payments we will add a 5% processing fee.

30% Project Deposit

To begin any reglazing project, we require a 30% down payment. The balance will become due at the completion of your reglazed space. Please note that if you decide not to go ahead with reglazing, your down payment is NON-REFUNDABLE.
