Finding Ways To Keep Up With Bathtubs

Bathtub Reglazing and Choosing the Right Service Your tub is now gotten old and ugly and you want a change. You are so tempted to buy that brand-new $300 bathtub unit at the retail hardware store. You can reglaze or refinish that old tub, on the other hand, and deal with less hassle and less cost and still have everyone thinking it’s new. For about $300 to $400, a reglazing company will put fresh coating to a typical tub within a day, and it can be used again in a matter of two to four days – definitely faster than a total replacement! Choosing a Bathtub Reglazer
5 Uses For Products
The goal of all bathtub refinishing projects is to give the homeowner a like-new bathtub unit, but truth is, not all bathtub reglazers can deliver on this. To find the right professional bathtub reglazing service, take the following steps:
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. > Since the reglazers need to enter your home to do their job, know what background checks are used to screen their workers or subcontractors. > Check out pictures of their past projects and ask for client references. > Don’t hire anyone who is not bonded, licensed and insured, no matter how great they may seem. The project estimate should be provided to you in written form. This will help you avoid unexpected charges at the end of the job. Typical 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 air is trapped in between individual paint layers, either because the bathtub was used before the paint could dry completely or the coating was not allowed to set properly > Fading – due to the paint or coating being mixed too thinly or not being allowed to dry properly, or if the bathtub is cleaned after the reglaze with the products that are too harsh and abrasive > Roughess – shows that before the coating was applied, the bathtub’s surface wasn’t sanded or cleaned properly > Sticky feel – a sign that the coating hasn’t set completely and possibly requires reapplication, although it can also mean that the reglazing chemicals were not mixed correctly, or that the coating reacted to something, such as a cleaning agent or chemical Just because a professional bathtub reglazer will work on your project doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be on top of it. By knowing how to hire a good contractor to how to check for reglazing problems, you should be just fine.
