My tub really needs some work. Shouldn’t I just throw it out and get a new one?
Why pay all the money for a new tub when we can save you money and make your old tub look like new again? Consider the cost of ripping out an old tub (and the potential cost of replacing tiles) and compare it to the cost of a refinished tub. Contact us to schedule a free estimate before making that decision.
What is the process you use for refinishing?
We thoroughly sand, clean and repair chips, cracks, holes, rust, burns, etc. in porcelain, cast iron, steel, fiberglass, cultured marble, or Formica® surfaces and fixtures. We again clean the surface, completely masking off the existing fixture as well as the surrounding area. Next our technicians bond, prime, and apply several coats of our acrylic coating, which produces a hard, shiny, long-lasting finish that looks brand new. Finally, we remove all masking paper and apply new mould-free caulking to your newly refinished fixture.
I’d love to get my tub redone, but I can’t be without it for the days it takes to dry?
Integrity Coatings is the state-of-the-art refinishing system, which means your tub will be ready to use within 24 hours of treatment! 3-day waits are now a thing of the past!
How durable is it?
Just as technology has improved so many things, the refinishing coatings used by Executive Bathtubs are incredibly durable. Our finishes are designed to stand up to their intended use for years. However, just like a brand new surface, a refinished surface can be chipped or scratched if it is abused.
How long will it last?
Fixtures refinished by Executive Bathtubs should easily last 10 to 15 years with proper care and maintenance.
I’d love to get my condo tub repainted, but you probably wouldn’t do such a small job, right?
No job is too small! We give the same care to a 500-square foot apartment as we do a 500-unit apartment building. Visit our Contact page – we’d love to hear from you.
When you refinish the tub, does it look like it has been painted?
Not at all! In fact, many customers have asked us if we re-glaze with porcelain – it looks that good!
Our tub looks horrible, but we’re planning on selling our house soon, why should we bother?
As any good real estate agent will tell you, a little bit of paint goes a long way in increasing the value of your house. Apply that to your bathroom, too! Imagine the value of a brand-new looking tub! It’s the little things that will help increase the selling price of your home. The same goes for residential rental properties – you can definitely ask higher rates if the bathroom looks new!
What should I do to prepare before technician arrives?
Simply remove all items from fixture surface (soaps, bottles, towels, rags, shower curtains etc.)
I found a place in the phone directory that is offering rock-bottom deals. Should I go with them instead of Executive Tubs?
That’s the thing about the marketplace: you get what you pay for. That said, we pride ourselves on our reasonable prices. Contact us to schedule a personalized estimate and see the Executive difference!
