Bathroom Surface Solutions

Have a project with us?
Prepare
for our arrival by doing the following:

Floors, ceiling and walls: All should be cleaned prior to our arrival. This will reduce the amount of dust that falls onto the surface during application. All loose items must be removed (curtains, toiletries, mirrors, pictures, etc). Anything we remove is out of courtesy, and we will not be held responsible for any damage during the process. It is the customer’s responsibility to put everything back into its place after job is completed.

Plumbing: Any leaks coming from faucets, handles or any plumbing fixtures should be fixed before we arrive. Please remove overflow plate on tub and plumbing fixtures over the surface should be loosened or removed. Toilet must be removed if necessary; we need at least an eight-inch gap from the tub. We will not be held responsible for any plumbing fixtures that we have removed. We are not licensed plumbers. If fixtures cannot be removed, then we can mask them before applying the new finish.

Grout: The finish being applied will not fill in any missing grout. All grout must be in good condition before we arrive to achieve the best possible looking finish. Our coatings are applied at a very thin viscosity. Therefore; any unevenness, gaps, or pinholes in grout will not be hidden.

Paint and Wallpaper: We are required to tape and mask-off the perimeter of the substrate that will be refinished. When masking is removed any paint or wallpaper that is lifted, we will not be held accountable for the repairs. Any areas of concern please point them out, so we can use extra caution.

Caulking and sealant: All edges, seams, drains and hardware must be caulked and sealed for the finish to have a lasting result. Caulking should be installed at least 20-hours after the work is completed and before the first-use.

Masking: Some masking will be left around the refinished unit. We are not responsible for the removal or re-installation of doors, caulking, or masking. If you are not comfortable doing this, then please call our office and schedule a follow up visit. Additional fees may be incurred.



Rules to Follow for Your Refinished Tub

  • DO NOT use the surface for the specified number of days or hours recommended after completion of the job.
  • DO NOT leave soap bottles or any objects on the tub.
  • DO NOT let a leaky faucet go un-repaired.
  • DO NOT use abrasive cleaners. No S-O-S pads. Nothing with ammonia or bleach.
  • DO NOT use bathmats with suction cups underneath.
  • DO NOT pick surface dust with your finger. Dust will fall onto the finish and this cannot be avoided as we are not working in a 100-percent dust-free environment. Any dust that settles onto the refinished surface will dissipate in 3-4 weeks of normal cleaning.
  • DOT NOT clean animals in the refinished tub. Their claws will scratch the painted finish.
  • The best way to keep your tub clean is to wipe it down with a towel after each use (this is to prevent soap scum build up). You do not have to wipe it dry.
  • Maintain caulking around tub.
  • Some good cleaners are Lysol Basin Tub and Tile, Mr. Clean, DOW, Fantastic. It is best to read the back label and it will generally tell you if it is usable or not for painted surfaces.
You may wax tubs 2-3 times a year with a urethane polish (Turtle Wax 2001). This will help hold its gloss retention. Don’t polish the bottom where you will be standing.

At the Completion of your bathroom resurface project

We take great pride in doing high-quality work. To enable us to work safely and efficiently, we ask that you remove all personal belongings from the bathroom before our refinisher arrives.

When the refinishing process is completed, our spray technician will give you a hand tube of adhesive caulking. It is imperative that the tub or sink be caulked before the unit is used. If you are not comfortable or able to do this, our technician can schedule a time to return to caulk and re-install the fixtures. There is an additional small fee for this service.

Please note: Standard colors for bathtubs, showers, and sinks are Kohler High gloss White or Kohler Biscuit. Other colors are available for a $100 custom-color charge.
