The Lifespan of Resurfacing
Bathtub Resurfacing in the Atlanta Metro Area!
Determining How Long Your Resurfaced Fixture Will Last
A realistic life expectancy of any resurfacing job is between 5 and 10 years. There are several factors that will determine just how long you can expect a surface to last. The condition of the surface before refinishing, how often the surface will be used and how the newly refinished surface is taken care of are some common factors. When deciding if you should replace or resurface, it is important to know how long a resurface will last so that you can decide which route is best for you. Most bathtubs, tile, cabinets and countertops can be resurfaced and their condition will determine just how long that resurface will last.
A bathtub, for example, that is badly worn will not have the same lifespan of a bathtub that is moderately worn. Chips, cracks and scratches from years of wear and tear will certainly need to be considered when deciding to refinish your tub. Most bathtubs and other surfaces that have seen years of neglect can easily be resurfaced to look new, including any chips or scratches. However, the shape it is in when resurfacing is done will predict it’s life cycle.
A newly refinished bathtub in a bathroom that serves as a guest bathroom will last longer than a refinished bathtub in a bathroom that has several uses per day. Your kitchen countertops can be expected to last a few years with resurfacing. Since it is an area that is used everyday, chips, dents and scratches are inevitable. Resurfaced tile can last far longer because most tile surrounding your tub and on your walls doesn’t see everyday abuse like a tub our countertop does.
As for care, the proper cleaners must be used and often enough so that your newly refinished bathtub or tile does not suffer from the natural damage that oils, dirt, and soap scum do. For instance, a bathtub and tile surround needs daily maintenance, especially if it is in a bathroom that is used regularly. Simple wipe downs of the surface can keep your refinishing job looking brand new for many years.
What is equally important to remember is how the resurfacing job is done in the first place. Relying on experts in the field can ensure a professional, top quality job that will play the biggest factor in how long your surface will last. Trying to do the job yourself will not have a long lifespan that you seek. Professional resurfacers use top grade supplies and equipment that only those in the industry have access to purchasing.
