Question: “How long will it last?”
Answer: This has more to do with how the item is treated. Nothing lasts forever, but if the user exercises some care and common sense the resurfaced item will last well beyond the warranty period.
We provide our customers with all the information they need to help them get the best out of their experience with us.
Question: “We have just renovated our bathroom .We left the old bath in because it didn’t look too bad but now that everything else is new it looks old. What can you do?”
Answer: We can resurface your old bath and leave it looking like new. When a bathroom is being renovated, and the bath retained, we recommend resurfacing the bath once all the other work is completed.
Question: “We have an old cast iron bath that we don’t want to replace with a small tin or plastic bath. Can it be resurfaced?”
Answer: Yes. We specialise in resurfacing all types of built-in baths, on-site. It is only usually necessary to take the bath away when it is a freestanding claw-foot bath. These are usually restored at our premises.
Question: “I think my bath may have been resurfaced already. Can it be done again?”
Answer: Not a problem. We may remove the existing coating if the adhesion is not satisfactory, and repair and resurface the original surface. This will be discussed prior to work commencing.
Question: “Our bath is scratched all over the bottom and impossible to keep clean. Can you resurface it?”
Answer: Certainly. All scratches will be repaired, giving your bath a smooth, polished surface. This makes cleaning much easier as the dirt will not be trapped in scratches.
Question: “Can you resurface my hand basin and shower base as well?”
Answer: Yes. Actually, almost any part of your bathroom can be resurfaced in any colour, including hand-basins and shower bases.
Question: “My tiles are a horrible colour and I can’t stand them. I can’t afford to have them replaced. Can you resurface them?”
Answer: Your tiles can be easily resurfaced, providing that they are structurally sound. We will inspect the area to ensure there are no obvious structural issues, then measure and quote the area. We do not recommend resurfacing floor tiles.
Question: “I have a rental property with a worn and damaged bath. Can the job be done quickly?”
Answer: Yes. The bath can be repaired, resurfaced, baked and polished all in the same day.We recommend an overnight cure before the bath is used next.
Question: “I have a pink bath; can you change the colour to white?”
Answer: You can change the colour of your bath to white or any other colour of your choice. Usually the colour of the basin would dictate the colour of the bath, white basin = white bath.
Question: “I painted my bath with a DIY product and it is peeling and looks terrible. Can you fix it?”
Answer: Yes, we can. We would simply remove the “tub and tile” paint form the bath, and then proceed with our usual approach. All too often we come across clients who have wasted a lot of time and money on the DIY product. Resurfacing is one of those jobs that is better left to a professional.
Question: “We recently installed a new acrylic bath but it has been severely scratched on the bottom by the tradesman. Can you repair it?”
Answer: Yes. This is a common problem that we are often called on to fix. In this case we can usually remove the scratches and restore the shine without the need for resurfacing.
Question: “How does the cost of resurfacing compare to replacement?”
Answer: This is a very commonly asked question, and one that is difficult to answer in brief.
