   Fiberglass Bathtub Repair and Reglazing

About Tub Glazing & Fiberglass/Acrylic Tub Repair

Reglazing is the process by which fixtures and surfaces are refinished to look like new. With
reglazing, worn out bathtubs and tile can be refinished to their original luster.

Over the years, thanks mainly to the use of harsh abrasive cleaners, bathtubs and fixtures lose
the original look. In addition, the surface has actually become porous to the point where keeping
them clean is very difficult if not impossible. Dirt and soap scum are caught and trapped in the
roughened surface just like a sponge soaks up water.

We offer Fiberglass Bathtub Repair and Reglazing:

Reasons Homeowners Have Tub Reglazed

  • The fixture has been the victim of someone who has dropped a heavy object and chipped
    or damaged the surface.
  • Tthe fixture has been badly damaged by misuse of drain cleaners or other chemicals.
  • The fixture has been severely stained by who knows what.
  • Afiberglass unit has cracked from poor installation.
  • The tile is showing its age; is cracking or discoloring or won't shine anymore.
  • The grout between the tiles is looking old and hard to keep clean.
  • A homeowner or a hotel needs permanent "noslip" bottoms in their tubs.
  • Tastes change and maybe its just time to change the color of the fixture.

The Repair and Reglazing Process

Here at Budget Plumbing we first repair any chipped or damaged areas. We then prepare
the surface for reglazing using our industrial cleaning process. Next we apply and cure a
patented adhesive coating. Finally a exclusive synthetic porcelain finish is applied and
chemically bonded to the surface.

Special note to Real Estate Brokers and Home Sellers:

Heed the advice from Remodeling Magazine. "Just as a new kitchen turns buyers on, so does a
bathroom that's bright, spacious, and up to date. (Real Estate) agents nationally say that
thoroughly updating a bath is one of the best investments owners can make in their houses.
Most agents say that owners will get back $6 for every $5 invested in remodeling.

Since Budget Plumbing can do the job for much less than the cost of replacement, your return on investment can be considerably more and your house will sell faster!
