If you need to have your shower tiles reglazed or repainted in Lakeland or nearby, you have come to the right place. Tile refinishing for showers is generally very affordable and far less expensive than replacing all the tile. That being said, there are differences between refinishing or reglazing and painting, which we will go over now.
Refinishing your shower tiles are going to require specialized primers, bonding agents, coating, finishes, and equipment in order to get done. But the real difference between refinishing your shower tiles and painting them comes down to durability and longevity.
Plain and simple, painting your shower tiles using a standard retail hardware store product may look nice for a few months, but it’s not going to be nearly as durable or resistant to general wear and tear as refinishing them will, so you’ll have to spend more money on having the tiles done again down the road; usually within the year.
Furthermore, painting your tile yourself isn't going to fix any blemishes within the tile itself. When we refinish shower tiles, we don't just reglaze the top layer, we first fix cracks, chips and scratches to make the service even. This way, when your tiles are glazed, your shower will have a smooth, new-like surface.
What's more, proper professional shower tile refinishing services rebuild the layers a bit, getting into a deeper restoration process. Painting bathroom tiles will only cover up issues lying underneath, but refinishing will fix them for years to come. And, don't worry, you can still choose the color of your preference when we refinish your bathroom tile.
You may be wondering about what the refinishing process for your shower tiles is going to look like when you work with Bathtub Refinishing Services Lakeland, FL. First, we will thoroughly clean your entire shower to remove the grease, oils, dirt, and soap residue. We will then fill in any chips, fix minor cracks and smooth out scratches.
Once the surface is totally clean, we will overlay the surface with a thin coat to ensure that it is fully even. Finally, we will apply our glaze using the color of your choosing.
Refinishing your shower in general is going to make it far more durable and resistant to general war and tear, which means that further maintenance work down the road will be far less frequent. Furthermore, reglazing or refinishing your shower in contrast to having it simply replaced will save you literally thousands of dollars as well.
On top of that, redoing your shower until it looks just as good as new can greatly increase the overall value of your home as well, especially if you opt to refinish the master bathroom shower. We also offer sink resurfacing services to save on repairing that fixture too.
Any time your shower tiles are in good shape, refinishing is going to be a smart, economical choice. Here are a few scenarios when we often see property owners choose tile refinishing:

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.
