The Refinishing Process-What We Do

At Tuff Tub Refinishing we follow a basic 5-step resurfacing process to refinish or reglaze your bathtub, counter top, or sinks. While refinishing companies may have techniques or products that differ, the refinishing process itself is generally the same.

1. Clean and Prep Tub

First we clean and scrub out all contaminants, including removal of silicone caulking. Next, we make any initial repairs on bottom and sides of the bathtub.

2.  Site preparation

Because bathtub resurfacing is messy, we take the necessary steps to insure that your bathroom is protected from over spray with plastic sheeting taped securely at the edges.

The bathtub refinishing process can produce vapors that may cause irritation, so make sure there is proper ventilation until the process is completed.Bathtub Refinishing Process_before

3. Sand & Repair

To insure a proper adherence of the reglazing, we first sand the existing coating adequately to insure a proper bond.

Any remaining cracks, chips, rust or weak spots are then removed as the last step to prepare for the primer.

4. Primer

A primer is then applied to the bathtub surface and allowed to dry.

5. Coating

Multiple layers of coating are applied to reglaze and create a new waterproof surface. Once these coats dry, the sealer coat is applied, and your refinishing project is complete.
