Regardless of whether your bathtub is made out of fiberglass, porcelain, cultured marble, or acrylic, Bathtub Refinishing Services Lakeland, FL will come to your rescue. Our experts can repair bathtubs in Lakeland and throughout central Florida.
It is very easy for bathtubs to become damaged, whether it’s because of installation mistakes, shipping issues, a sharp or heavy object falling over the bathtub, or just general wear and tear from over the course of time.
Regardless, when the quality of your fixtures begins to decline, it’s better to tackle the issue sooner rather than later. It will be our goal to resurface your bathtub until it looks like new, and in a manner that is as quick and inexpensive for you as possible.
There are numerous different kinds of issues that can happen with a bathtub that would necessitate repair and that we will be able to help you with.
To name a few, these include:
Regardless of what task you need, the basic process for repairs will be very similar, which we will dive into next.
The basic process for professional bathtub repair will be to use polyester resins, which are waterproof, to fill up all visible chips and cracks. Once those chips and cracks have been sanded and filled up, we will then delicately apply acrylic enamel coating with an air brush or other method and then complete a full tub reglazing process. The result means that the chips and cracks will be ‘blended’ into the surrounding surface and will be hidden from view.
In fact, the once highly visible chips and cracks should become invisible. Take note that this is not a process that the majority of people are able to do on their own, because it truly requires an artists eye and hand to get it done right, not to mention the proper commercial tools and applications. Furthermore, to ensure proper color matching, professional help will almost always be necessary as well.
The resulting repairs means that your bathtub can literally look just as good as new.
Most tubs are repairable. It's pretty rare that a tub is in such bad shape that it can't be refinished. Even tubs that look like they could never come clean can surprisingly be fixed with only a deep cleaning service, rather than a full refinishing project. We'll have to see photos of the tub to be sure, but it's always an option we consider. If the bathtub damage is truly excessive, then yes, a full replacement might be the only viable option. But on the other hand, most cracks and chips will only necessitate repair, and the vast majority of damage that we personally see with bath tubs only necessitate repair rather than a full on replacement job.
Always try to refinish your tub, when possible, because you will save literally thousands of dollars by opting to have the bathtub repaired rather than replaced and the work will last for years. This is because the cost of bathtub repair is typically in the hundreds, while the cost of bathtub replacement is in the several thousands. How long it lasts naturally depends on wear and tear, but we've had many clients happy with the finish for a full decade.

A typical bathtub reglazing project will be done in one day. If the project includes a fully tiled shower or shower surround, we might need two days for the work and curing.
The key to getting more years out of your refinishing service is to be gentle with your tub and tile. Avoid using harsh chemicals and cleaning agents. A properly finished bathroom fixture should last 10-15 years, with reasonable use.
If you're wondering whether it makes more sense to reglaze your tub or replace it, here are a few thoughts to consider. First, do you like your existing tub, outside of its color or age? If so, then you can restore the surface like-new with refinishing for a lot less than if you had to replace it. Do you want to avoid demo? Then refinishing will be a better choice because no demolition or installation is needed to reglaze a tub. Do you want to have your bathroom back quickly? A remodel can take weeks, but most refinishing jobs are done in 1-2 days.
