Refinishing and acid etching your Atlanta bathroom
When you decide to refinish your bathtub and tile surround, you may also want to consider the tile floor as well. Atlanta bathtub refinishing is an effective and cost saving way to get your dull, worn bathtub back into tiptop shape. If you have tile floors in your bathroom that are also dull and worn, you may want to consider a process called acid etching.
Cleaning up antique tile floors is a more effective way to spruce up your bathroom and save your home’s original fixtures. If the floors are in good shape (no cracks, chips or missing tile) then you can save them and turn them back into the beautiful floors they once were. Acid etching tile is a process that is used to burn off dirt, rust stains and other signs of use and abuse. It also takes off any glaze that is on the tile and makes it dull. After this step is done, the tile is cleaned with a wet sponge to get any debris and remaining solution off the floor. Then, a clear glaze is hand rolled on to the floor, which dries and leaves your tile brand new and rock hard that will surely give it another 100 years of life.
When it comes to older homes in and around the Atlanta area, we all strive to protect them and revive them to their former glory. These historic homes are part of what makes Atlanta a quaint yet big city. If you are lucky enough to own one of these amazing homes, then you know what it means to preserve them. Part of that is to try and keep the home as original as possible. When it comes to the bathroom, most of the room can be restored to its original look.
The bathtub is the first thing you want to revive in your older home. That is the last thing you want to remove and replace. Mainly because they just don’t make bathtubs the same way anymore. Older tubs were mostly made out of cast iron as opposed to fiberglass that many are made out of today. Older tubs were built to last forever and if you take care of them properly, they will. Sometimes they just need a facelift. This is where bathtub refinishing comes in.
Refinishing can be applied to most things in your bathroom. Bathtubs, tile, cabinets and countertops can all get revitalization from refinishing. And don’t ignore those once shiny and gorgeous tile floors. The floors in older homes always seemed to make a statement and if they are in good shape, they can be the focal point again. Acid etching your floors will restore and revitalize them and refinishing will turn your other fixtures from old to fabulous in just one day.
