The answer to your question may just be here.
Bathtub refinishing is the process of refreshing the surface of a worn out, damaged bathtub and making it look like-new.
The average refinishing job can save you up to 60-80 percent.
There are quite a few steps to the refinishing process. First we clean the area; which means we remove all soap scums and oil that have built up. Then, we repair any chips, cracks, holes, or missing tiles. After, we mask off all the areas that will not be refinished to ensure a clean and professional job. Then, we apply a bonding agent to the surfaces and a primer. Finally we finish it off with the topcoat.
The grout absorbs everything and can eventually grow mold, discolor, and just look plain dirty. When refinishing the tile and grout, it will be sealed with a new coating. It will protect it from getting dirty, growing mold, or discoloration.
The average refinishing job takes approximately 4 to 5 hours.
After 24 hours the fixture can be put back to use.
