What is resurfacing & reglazing?
Resurfacing (reglazing,refinishing, refacing) is a proven method of renovating bathtubs, tile, sinks and countertops that has been around for 40 years. It involves spraying industrial strength, durable coatings. For years, it has been the well kept secret of professional designers, disaster restoration, home renovation pros, and hotel managers. But now, with the popularity of home improvement programs on TV, the residential homeowner has discovered the low cost, professional alternative to replacement.
Resurfacing bathtubs and tile offers you typical savings of 60-70% over the cost of replacement. If your bathtub is worn or damaged, you can't just pop it out of the wall and drop in a new one. Most tubs have a lip that runs the length of the tub where the tile and tub meet. The tile is laid over this lip to prevent water from getting behind the tile. Also the tub fits so snugly in its place that several rows of tile must be removed just to get it loose. If the tub is cast iron, it may need to be broken up with a sledge hammer just to make the pieces light and small enough to get out of the bathroom. The services of a plumber and tiler are usually necessary to reinstall the new tub, so this seemingly simple project can end up costing thousands and take weeks to complete.

95% of the bathtubs we've encountered have been good candidates for refinishing. Most tubs have been worn down from years of cleaning using powdered cleansers and scouring pads. While we were all raised using these cleansers, they were never a good idea for porcelain or enameled tubs. Repeated use causes the bathtub finish to become rough and porous, allowing soap and dirt to stick to it, making it even harder to get clean.
Your freshly refinished tub will be smooth and non-porous. Cleaning is easy with a mild cleanser and soft cloth. Powders and acidic cleaners should not be used, and will not be necessary as long as the tub is cleaned regularly. With regular care, resurfacing can add up to 15 years of life to a bathtub, and the process can be repeated as often as you like!

Luv it! Darryl is a perfectionist. Super friendly, professional, and prompt!
Our 30 year old tub looks great! nice professional job!
Extremely happy with your bathtub restoration!
I called Darryl based on a Google search. Checked the website and it described everything we needed. We were a little apprehensive with no references or knowledge of his work quality. To put it mildly, we were very happy with our choice and its outcome. He was everything you want in a vendor: 1. Punctual 2. Did a great job. 3. Cleaned up his mess. we now have a brand new looking tub with an excellent 3 year Warranty. Great job for a reasonable price. I highly recommend this company
I love my new tub! Mr Hunter was wonderful and he did a beautiful job. He left the bathroom cleaner than when he got there! He was very careful to cover everything up so no spray got on the walls or anywhere else. He was very nice and I felt very comfortable with him in my home. His prices are very reasonable. It was much cheaper to get the tub refinished then to try and buy another one or get a tub liner. The tub looks brand new. It sparkles! It also comes with a 3 year guarantee! He scheduled me in right away and worked very quickly. I never imagined I could have something looking so nice so fast! I am so happy! I highly recommend this business. Mr. Hunter is a true professional!
