Bathtub Refinishing Importance
It’s the process by which bathtubs are refreshed to their original state by repairing of damaged parts like cracks or chips using putty and then prepping these repaired areas with acid etching which provides with adhesion.
There is also another method of bathtub resurfacing where by the process is uses adhesion-promoting boding agents which increase the forces of attraction between the cracked areas mending them together, after use of this adhesion agents like siranes, coating is done which refreshes bathtub surface.
The refinishing process starts with cleaning of the tub by which soap scum, mineral deposits and body oils are removed followed by repairing of the cracks on the surface and this is done by applying of bond-enhancers which ensures solid bond between the old surface and the new finish and then a fine-finish spray is applied to increase the coating durability.
Its very advantageous to the household and the owner as it’s cost effective method of bringing that good looking and clean shows, bathtubs or even worn out tiles and ceramics which might be extremely hard to clean at a fraction of the replacement cost.
Refinishing process will only involve the improving the state of the tube or the ceramics hence unlike the replacing bathtubs which will include extra processes leading to high cost as plumbing system must be altered to fit the new tub, tiles and floor job will be included adding extra cost not forgetting tearing of the wall to fit the required space of the tub as its better refinishing than replacing.
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 refinishing has an advantage to the householder as he/she can choose which color to be applied on the tub after refinishing without necessarily paying for the service as it’s incorporated in the whole refinishing process.
Refinishing of bathtub can increase its life and make It more useful to the household for many years saving replacing.
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.
