If your tub is an ugly color or damaged, refinishing can transform it with new finish. Total replacement can take days or weeks and wreak havoc with your life. You might need a demo crew, plumber, drywaller, carpenter and/or painter. These contractors can make a mess of your home, not to mention causing undue stress in your life. Refinishing usually takes only a few hours and frequently you can use the fixture the same day!
Many standard colors are available, or a totally custom color can be achieved. We also offer a faux-granite look that is great for kitchen counters or bathroom vanities. In any case we can match your current décor.
