Got a Tired Bathtub or Sink? |
Don't replace - resurface!
Got a bathroom or kitchen that needs some help? Looking for affordable solutions and alternatives?
Resurfacing your bathtub or sink is nothing new, but until recently it was only a short time solution. But thanks to technological advances, today is it even
more viable than in the past. As matter of fact, you can resurface these areas with amazing results.
the process involves putting an application of durablecoating over the existing survace, which ereates the look and feel of a newly installed fixture.
The most common surfaces to get such a treatment are formica, ceramic tile, bathtubs and sinks.
If you use a reputable and experienced company, that uses the highest quality products, you can see the resurfacing lasting 10-15 years with proper care.
Use resurfacing for your kitchen or bathrooms if you have outdated color schemes. A different color can make a world of difference. Naturally a bright white
surface is the most versatile.
Resurfacing can even renew worn surfaces that are old, chipped, scratched or cracked. It doesn't make sense to tear our perfectuly good tile or a tub just
because you want to make it white.
the best benefits are the time and cost you will save when resurfacing. In a renovation, there is expensive demolition, plumbing or electrical issues to deal
with or repair or replace. You also won't have any unexpected expenses, repairs or time involvement. Since most projects are completed in one day or less,
and you can use the area the next day, your downtime is minimal.
On the average, you'll save anywhere from 65 % to 80% of what it would cost to remodel.
As always, be sure to collect references from any company you are considering, get the terms of the project in writing, and don't pay for the service until
it is completed to your satisfaction.
