PROFESSIONAL BATHTUB REFINISHING
Bathtubs are shiny, beautiful, and look best when they’re polished. Unfortunately, they are also fragile and break easily. If you have cracks or other imperfections in your porcelain tub, look no further us! Bathtubs are the centerpiece of the bathroom and they’re also the amenity that requires the most repair, due to the fact they’re in almost constant contact with water.
Our bathtub repair services can range anywhere from fixing chips and cracks to refinishing poorly conducted paint jobs. We can repair all kinds of bathtubs even if they are fiberglass or porcelain material.

COMMON CAUSES OF BATHTUB CRACKS
There are three main reasons why cracks tend to form in, bathtub materials which are lack of support or if the material is flexible, damage from heavy objects and damage from heavy cleaners. Some material such as fiberglass is highly flexible, meaning it will bend if weight is placed on it. If this sort of material is installed improperly or without additional support, overtime the weight pressure will cause cracks to form. Cracks also tend to form when objects are dropped on the bathtub, creating small divots and dents that will eventually spiral out into much larger cracks and crevices over time. Lastly, with highly abrasive cleaners such as bleach, the finish and gloss of the bathtub can easily be eroded, allowing more moisture into the material, causing cracks. So why are cracks dangerous? Well, if ignored, even tiny cracks in your bathtub can eventually become much larger cracks down the road
BATHTUB REPAIR - HOW ARE REPAIRS MADE?
Professional bathtub repair uses waterproof, polyester resins to fill chips and cracks. Once properly sanded and filled, acrylic enamel coatings are carefully applied commonly with an artist’s airbrush. The repaired area is carefully blended into the surrounding surface so well that it is practically invisible. Chip and bathroom tub repair takes an artistic eye for color and years of practice.

WHEN NOT TO REGLAZE.
Refinishing is well-suited to very old tubs, which typically have more character and are made of higher-quality materials than what’s available today. The process isn’t always the best solution, of course. For example, for a newer, low-quality tub, you’ll get better results by replacing it with a higher-quality model. Tubs that are in bad disrepair may not be candidates for reglazing. Also, homeowners who are remodeling and want a larger tub or one with more modern features, such as jets, will need to demolish and replace.
