Bathtub Reglazing and Picking the Right Service Your tub has become old and ugly and you think you’re ready a change. You are so tempted to buy that brand-new $300 bathtub unit at the retail hardware store.

> Ask for quotes from at least three contractors. > Ask them about their product, whether they offer any warranties or guarantees, and how long you have to wait for them to finish the project. > Research the contractor’s training, experience and certifications. > 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 even consider hiring someone who is not licensed, bonded and insured, even if they seem great in all other areas.

In the world of bathtub reglazing, these are signs that something is wrong: > 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 > Roughness – shows that the surface wasn’t properly sanded or cleaned before the application of coating > Sticky feel – a sign that the reglaze coating hasn’t fully set and may have to be reapplied, although it’s also likely that the reglazing chemicals were not combined properly or that something, such as a cleaning agent, might have reacted with the coating Just because a professional bathtub reglazer will work on your project doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be on top of it.
