Bathtub Reglazing and Hiring the Right Services Your tub is not just old but also unsightly, and you think a change is in order. You are so tempted to buy that brand-new $300 bathtub unit at the retail hardware store. Or you can just reglaze or refinish that old tub for much less trouble and cost and still make everyone swear it’s new. At a price of around $300 – $400, a reglazing company will add a fresh coating to a regular-sized tub in just a day, and it will be usable again after two to four days – certainly much faster compared to a full replacement. Finding a Bathtub Reglazer
3 Services Tips from Someone With Experience
Although all bathtub refinishing projects are supposed to give the homeowner a new-looking bathtub unit, not all service providers can stay true to that. When looking for a good professional bathtub reglazing service, consider the following tips:
5 Uses For Products
> Ask for quotes from at least three contractors. > Inquire about their product, how long it usually takes them to complete the project, and whether or not they will offer warranties or guarantees. > Research the contractor’s background, particularly their level of experience in reglazing and any certifications they may have. > Because the project requires the reglazers to be in your home, know what type of background checks they conduct on their workers or subcontractors. > Ask for client references and look at pictures of their past projects. > Forget hiring someone without a license, bonding and insurance, even if they seem great every other way. The project estimate should be provided to you in written form. This keeps surprise charges at bay as the job draws to a close. Common Bathtub Reglazing Problems Not all jobs come out perfect, even if you hired a reputable professional. When it comes to bathtub reglazing, these are signs of problems you should watch out for: > Bubbles – indicates there is air trapped in between individual paint layers, either because the coating was not allowed to set properly before the bathtub was used again, or drying time was simply inadequate > Fading – happens when the coating or paint is combined too thinly and not allowed to dry properly, or if the harsh and abrasive cleaners are used after the reglaze > Roughess – shows that the bathtub’s surface was not cleaned and sanded properly before the coating was applied > Tacky feel – a sign that the coating hasn’t properly set and might need reapplication, although it can also indicate that the reglazing chemicals were incorrectly mixed, or that there was something – perhaps a cleaning agent or chemical – that reacted with the coating Just because you plan to hire a professional bathtub reglazer doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be in full control of your project. Now that you know how to choose a good contractor and spot reglazing issues, you should be doing just perfect.
