What can you resurface in your home?
Resurfacing is an industry term for refinishing or reglazing of common household fixtures. These fixtures include bathtubs, tile, cabinets and countertops. But what exactly does resurfacing entail and what exactly can you resurface?
Our experts at Top Gun Applied Surfaces answer some of your resurfacing/refinishing/reglazing household questions:
How would you recommend resurfacing to a client that might be considering fully gutting their kitchen or bathroom?
It all comes down to budget. If they want a fresh clean look at 1/6 of the cost, then resurfacing is the best option. No one will ever know your fixture was resurfaced unless you tell them.
What other surfaces can you refinish? Think about every surface inside and outside of the home.
Almost any surface can be resurfaced. Laminate, fiberglass cultured marble, porcelain, Corian, even wood. We’ve even resurfaced a pool before, although I’d recommend leaving that to pool experts, which we are not!
What particular surfaces do you prefer to refinish? Anything you stay away from?
As long as the surface is properly prepared it’s all fair game! If we are able to prepare the surface for refinishing, then we will do it. If the surface is too damaged, we don’t recommend saving it. That’s when a remodel would come into place.
Are your resurfacing supplies available to the general public?
No. The proper materials aren’t typically sold over the counter. We use high grade, top quality materials which make the resurface project last.
Why choose a professional like yourself over DIY?
To do the job properly it requires the right application with the right materials using the right equipment. Most homeowners aren’t skilled in such a huge project and in the end they may have to call the expert in after they realize they can’t do the job themselves.
Why resurface instead of replace?
Preserving fixtures in homes has become a very popular trend today. It is more effective financially and saves time.
Do you see this trend lasting and how can someone like you keep the trend going so that it becomes less of a trend and more of a way to honor the way things were once made?
There will always be a place for this service and how I do my part to keep it going is to do top quality, long lasting work that endures for years and keeps those old fixtures in top condition.
