Frequently Asked Questions About Bathtub or Tile Refinishing and Resurfacing
If I have my tub refinished how long will it last?
Our technologies provide long lasting finished surfaces. You should expect 10-15 years worth of service from your refinished fixture.
How long does it usually take to refinish a tub?
Usually about four hours with a follow-up visit.
My tub was refinished by someone else and is peeling. What happened?
Most likely you have a surface bonding problem. The company that refinished your tub most likely used either inexpensive, inferior materials, and/or poorly trained personnel. At Advanced Bathtub Refinishing we only use the finest materials and our technicians are highly trained.

Yes. Fiberglass or gel-coat tubs require a different type of etching process but once completed are just as durable as regular bathtubs.

No, your tub is not necessarily ruined and yes, it is definitely fixable.

My ceramic tile tub enclosure is a really dated color. Can it be recolored?
Your bathroom tile can be recolored to any color you want. We use the same long lasting refinishing process on your tile that we use on tubs.
