Debunking Bathtub Refinishing Myths

Over time, bathtub surfaces become scratched, chipped, worn, stained, and damaged for many reasons. Because the surface becomes damaged, it can hold germs, dirt, scum, and soap. This makes the bathtub a potentially unhealthy environment for everyone who uses it. It also makes the bathtub look less than stellar.
One of the solutions to the damage that has made the bathtub unsightly and unhealthy is to have the bathtub refinished. The other option is to replace it, but most people find that that isn’t a viable option when refinishing can be done at a fraction of the cost.
Unfortunately, there are some myths about bathtub refinishing that some people believe, causing them to pay much more money for the bathtub replacement than they would just to have it properly refinished.

Bathtub Refinishing Myths

Here is a list of myths and their facts:

  • Refinishing doesn’t last long – Yes, it does. This is especially true when TubFusioN is involved because of the incredible bond that is created with the surface of the tub. The coating is so durable that there is no chance of it losing its shine or chipping anytime soon when it is done right.
  • Bathtub refinishing is a mess – The areas around the bathtub are masked off and an exhaust system installed. The bathroom is protected from dust and overspray so that there is no mess for you to deal with when the process is over.
  • Bathtub refinishing takes too long – The average process takes several hours. The TubFusioN process takes a little longer than the average process because all necessary steps are executed to ensure a long-lasting finish. The process is carried out over two days but takes no more than 8.5 hours to complete.
  • Bathtub refinishing is expensive – It is actually quite affordable. It costs much less than replacing the bath tub. At the most, bathtub refinishing costs half the cost of a new bathtub. You get the most out of what you already have, but it can look and feel brand new.

The facts that debunk the myths are why so many people throughout Minneapolis, St. Paul, and the Twin Cities have chosen to have their bathtubs refinished.

Refinishing Makes Sense

These are just some of the common myths about refinishing bathtubs. This will help you make an informed decision about whether or not to refinish or replace. Unless the bathtub is in deplorable condition with no hope in sight for it, refinishing can be a fantastic option for your wallet and for the overall décor of your bathroom. You don’t have to worry about the old tub being taken out and a new one put in. A lot of hassle is avoided when choosing to refinish over replacement.
