And how does bathroom repair work?
Reglazing, or refinishing, a worn-out bathtub is an intensive process that really should only be carried out by a seasoned professional. While you can easily obtain chemicals and kits at your local Home Depot, the resurfacing task is anything but easy. Your bathroom is transformed into a spray booth for several hours. An array of chemicals are used in the reglazing process to restore existing tub and tile to an original or new state. After masking off the surrounding areas and properly ventilating the bathroom, the caulk is removed and the area sprayed down with a dissolving agent that removes any remaining caulk and etches the surface so the new finish will take.
After the surface cleaned, the new caulk is added and then the tub and caulk are dried. Fast-drying epoxy is then sprayed onto the surface of the tub with a minimum of two coats. The bathtub is cleaned again with a tack cloth to remove any elements like dust that should not be there. The tub is then coated with a polyurethane finish. Several layers of this finishing technique are added with surface sanding in between each coat. Lastly, the tub is polished and given a fresh new look.
How long does this all take and how long will this last?
The time-frame can take 4-6 hours, but is really dependent on the the condition of the tub prior to the restoration process. The tub need a solid 24 hours to cure before being used. This simply means that you can’t use it or run the water in the tub for a full day after the refinish.
Your “new tub” will realistically last 5-10 years. The length of time really is dependent upon how often the tub is used. If it’s a shared family tub in a hallway bathroom it will get lots more uses than a tub in a master bathroom that’s only used by one or two people.
