- 4 Reglazing vs. Replacing a Bathtub
Reglazing a bathtub is an inexpensive way to rejuvenate an old fixture, and removes scratches, chips and stains. When properly done, a reglazed bathtub can look just like new and with proper care, it can last for years. Just how long your new finish lasts depends on who applied the finish, the materials he used, and how you clean and maintain the tub afterward.
Reglazing a bathtub requires stripping off the old glaze first. Professionals typically use hydrofluoric acid to do this, and then they rinse and sand the tub. Once the old finish is gone, the technician cleans the tub to remove dirt, dust and other materials, and fills holes or cracks in the tub. Then the tub is ready to be glazed. Professional refinishers typically apply two coats of fast-drying epoxy to ensure the finish coat adheres properly, and finish the process with a polyurethane topcoat. They typically spray on these finishes for a smooth, even result, and then polish the tub to a high gloss shine.
Professional vs. DIY
To reglaze a bathtub, professionals typically use acrylic, polyurethane or urethane products, while do-it-yourself kits typically consist of paints or epoxies. These are not as toxic as professional materials, but they’re also not as durable and the finish deteriorates rapidly. Many DIY kits begin peeling within the first year, while professional bathtub reglazing lasts much longer.
The Bottom Line
How long a glaze will last on your bathtub depends on factors such as whether you did the glazing yourself or hired a professional, and how you maintained and cleaned the finish. Professional bathtub refinishers usually offer warranties that typically range between three and five years. With proper care and cleaning, your bathtub’s new finish can last this long or longer. According to Chuck Pistor, president of Surface Doctor, the finish on a reglazed tub can last 10 to 15 years if you take proper care of it. However, be wary of companies offering a lifetime guarantee on their work when they've only been in business a couple of years, or companies that offer warranties that are longer than the company itself has been in business.
Prolonging the Finish
If you’ve had your bathtub reglazed, it will require proper care to prevent scratches, chips and discoloration. Never use bleach, steel wool or abrasive cleaners on a reglazed bathtub; these will damage the coating. When cleaning, use nonabrasive, bleach-free kitchen cleaners instead. Bathtub mats with suction cups may tear the coating as well, so avoid these and use a urethane polish about every six months to extend the life of the coating.
