Refinishing FAQ's
Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Will It Last? A bathtub or ceramic tile wall refinished by Texas Bathtub Refinishers, Inc. should easily last 10 to 15 years with proper care and maintenance. In fact, many of our jobs done over 15 years ago still look great.

How Durable Is It? Just as technology has improved so many things, the refinishing coatings used by Texas Bathtub Refinishers, Inc. are incredibly durable. Our finishes are designed to stand up to their intended use...they do not require special care. However, just like a brand new surface, a refinished surface can be chipped or scratched if it is abused.

Will My Tub Look Painted? Most definitely not! In fact, most people would have a difficult time telling the difference between a new bathtub and a refinished one. Refinishing is that good if it is done right.

What If My Fixture Is Damaged? Small chips and cracks can usually be repaired during the preparation stage of the refinishing process.
