Refinish Rather Than Replace to Stay Within Budget
When doing a Bath Remodel one way to cut down on the expense is to reglaze the bathtub rather than replace it. Reglazing, while not as good a longterm solution as replacement, can enable you to get the same aesthetic effect at a fraction of the price.
Pacific Reglazing has been providing quality refinishing work in LA County as well as Orange county and into the surrounding counties since 1991.

Re-glazing your self can save you money but if you are unwilling to do very thorough prep work then you are wasting your time and money. We do a great number of re-dos of bathtubs that were done by the owners and had been messed up prematurely, sometimes within months. This then cost the the price of the kit, their time and an additional charge to remove the old finish before reglazing the bathtub.
This doesn’t mean you can’t do a good job of refinishing your bathtub, though the material you get at Home Depot is not professional quality, but you really need to do a thorough preparation of the tub, otherwise you are wasting your time and money.
If you have any queations as to how do preparation, YouTube or the video on this blog would give you an idea of the steps you need to take.
