For a long time, bathtub resurfacing has been used as a way of bringing life to a rather drab bathtub. It is a quick and less messy process that will keep your tub in good condition for a long time, and most importantly, it costs less than a tub replacement.
However, resurfacing may not be a guaranteed fix for your bathtub in some cases. So before considering a resurface, answer these questions to confirm if your bathtub is a good candidate for resurfacing.
- How old is your tub?
Was your bathtub built with the home? Perhaps old and heavy? If yes, then the material quality of the tub is a good one. Resurfacing may be an ideal option since it will also take care of the chips and cracks caused by aging.
Resurfacing may also be a viable option if your bathtub has some discolored or strange color look.
- Have you resurfaced before?
If yes, the costs of resurfacing it again may double since it probably has a double coating which may need to be stripped and sanded away.
In this case, a replacement may seem like a better option, but it doesn’t eliminate the fact that resurfacing is still possible.
- Does your tub have cracks?
Tubs made of fiberglass typically exhibit two kinds of cracking:
- Web cracking
- Structural crack
A web-like crack can be easily fixed by resurfacing; it only takes a little sanding down for the damages to disappear.
On the other hand, a structural crack may not be solved by resurfacing; it only masks the cracked area. Similar to rust, it spreads like cancer, and resurfacing may not be the ultimate solution.
So, if your bathtub passes the criteria for resurfacing, or you’re not sure, don’t hesitate to call the professionals.
