Why No One Talks About Remodels Anymore
Benefits of Bathtub Refinishing
Bathtub resurfacing or bathtub refurnishing is the process of refreshing bathtub surfaces which maybe worn out or damaged in the process of its work and bringing them into their original state and this process involves repairing of damaged areas, chip and cracks and then prepping the surface using acid etching; which provides mechanical adhesion.
Application of adhesion-promoting bonding agents like silanes on the surface before coating increases the forces of attraction and this ends up blocking any cracks or chips also another method of refinishing bathtub surfaces.
Bathtub refinishing aims to restoring that state the tube was, making it possible to clean and making it look new and it starts with thorough cleaning to remove minerals deposited, body oils on the surface and cracks or chips repairing and then the fine-finish spray is applied on the surface to increase durability of the coating.
Bathtub refinishing helps keep tubs, showers, ceramics tiles clean and new-shining on them which were hard to clean at a cheaper price than replacing the whole bathroom ware.
Replacing of bathtubs involves more work than refinishing as it alters with plumbing of the washroom , sometimes involve tearing of some parts of the walls and floor when fitting the new tub than refinishing which only deals with the tube alone.
In replacing the bathtub, there is the installation of the new one, plumbing, cleaning and even tile and sections of damaged walls replacing which can take even a week or two rather than just refinishing at only a maximum of eight hours.
Bathtub remodeling is advantageous as one is able to choose any color of his/her choice without paying extra fee on it and this is best for those people who think they don’t like the color of their bathtub and during refinishing, one can choose that color he/she admires and its done on the tube increasing the beauty of your bathroom without spending a lot of money.
Refinishing has an advantage of longevity and a tub can take more than 15 years and still be useful which makes it better to refinish than to replace.
Refinishing is somehow environmental friendly as it reduces and cuts off energy used in making of new bathtubs, saves landfills where ceramics for making tubs are mined and also lowers release of carbon to the atmosphere from industries making this tubs.
