This depends, but generally 10-15 years if the surfaces are given proper care and maintenance. Certain fixtures, like a kitchen sink, will get much more use (and therefore wear and tear) than other fixtures, such as a shower in the guest bathroom. Tile on the floor will wear more quickly than tile that is used on a wall.
If we're refinishing, please have everything removed from around the work area. Bathtubs and Countertops completely clear from personal belongings, so we will have plenty of room to work and protect your home from overspray with paper, plastic, and drops.
IMPORTANT: If there are shower doors on the bathtub or shower, they must be removed before we arrive. If you prefer us to remove the doors (this does not include disposing of them or re-installing them) there is an additional $75 charge.
If you are planning to replace any hardware (faucets, handles, and drains) or plan on replacing your sink, those must be removed before we arrive. We will also need electricity and lights, access to water, and a climate-controlled (a/c and heat), semi-sterile environment are required to do our work.
Not a problem! We grind the rust out and professionally repair the drain back to a beautiful finish. We also recommend a Drain and Overflow Kit. This creates a tight seal, preventing water from leaking again and causing a recurrence of rust. We do it all – no plumbers needed.
Refinishing a bathtub usually takes four hours. More time may be needed depending on the bathtub’s condition.
Kitchen Counters can be done in 1 day. Time will depend on size and layout.
Overall, project length will be much less time, mess and money than it would be if the rooms were being completely torn apart and rehabbed.
Yes. We offer and highly recommend our Anti-Slip Coating for nearly any tub or shower refinish.
Just about any type of material you will find in a home can be resurfaced - porcelain, ceramic, cultured marble, laminate (Formica), solid surfaces (Corian), acrylic, fiberglass. That's why we can do any size bathroom or kitchen projects... from a single shower pan to a complete room makeover! Check out our Services.
Bathtub and Counters are ready for use 48 hours after refinishing.
For Bathtubs, our standard glaze color is Pure White or Kohler White.
We can order any custom color you wish for a nominal fee - special orders will affect how soon the job can be scheduled.
For Countertops- we have over 40+ color options for you to choose from.
Due to our highly skilled technicians and superior-quality products and finishes, most people cannot tell the difference between a new surface and one that has been refinished. The sinks and tubs we refinish resemble porcelain, while our refinished countertops look like newly installed laminate or solid surfaces.
Here again, expertise and proper equipment is very important. Yes, as with any type of household or commercial type chemical, there is an odor, but we use a heavy duty professional exhaust system that pulls odors/dust from your home through the nearest window, as well as odor reduction additives to our glaze mixture. This exhaust system is on while we are working on your fixture, and for a few minutes after we are finished. There may be some lingering odors when we leave, but they typically dissipate by the time you retire for the evening. We recommend leaving the exhaust fan on for the evening and the door to the room closed during the dry time recommended.
Just like any remodeling process, you need to take care of it
in order for the condition to maintain. We suggest mild cleaners with a soft cloth to wipe down your fixtures.

No, but every case is different. Most refinishing companies will not do chip repairs because they are either untrained or just dishonest. Chip repair is truly an art. Getting a perfect color match is both an art and a science, something we know only the top technicians can achieve. We’re happy to advise and provide the best options for you.
