Problems caused by chemicals, abrasives, dyes, leaking faucets, standing water, bathmats, tools, toys, bottles, (sharp
blows in general) stuctural problems, improper installation (shower pans!), foundation movement , etc... are not covered by
warranty but once cured, are easily repaired the for the price of a service call, in most cases. Please be aware that
although we take great care, old fragile wallpaper and paint will sometimes "pull" off when we remove the masking
Another word about bathmats!
Water, believe it or not is a mild solvent, as many of you might recall from your high school chemistry class. And given
enough time water will soften and cause to fail even our very durable finish! When allowed to dry and essentially "re-cure"
the molecular integrity on the first few layers of our finish return to normal, and live to fight another day, day after day
for decades, because the water never penetrates to the bonded surface. However, if chronically wet it WILL fail.
Bathmats are the worst of several worlds, because they not only trap stagnant moldy water, they have
little suction-cups which abraid and then pull upwards on the surface as they're removed. In the rare event there is
an adhesion problem, 99% of them can be traced back to standing water (chronically dripping faucets) and/or bathmats!
Bathmats are a HUGE no-no! So are leaking faucets! If there is a safety concern, please let us know! We have heavy
discounts available to those who need the added traction of a bathmat, in our "SRS" (skid resistant surface).
In fact, this is industry-wide and even spills (sorry!) over into brand-new acrylic fixtures. Standing
or dripping water causes mineral-stains, and will ruin the gel-coat on a spanking-new $1500 acrylic tub too! Furthermore
a dripping faucet can easily waste hundreds of gallons a week! Don't believe it? Put a standard 3 gallon washbucket
under your dripping faucet and time how long it takes to fill. You'll be shocked. Now multiply that by 24 hours.
Then by 7 days. Then multiply THAT by how many dripping faucets in your home. 'Nuff said?
Please please please make sure all plumbing issues are repaired BEFORE we arrive!
Save yourself (and US!) time, money and frustration! We are obliged to charge you a minimum of $150 to return and repair
a problem which never should have happened in the first place! This helps no one: It's a financial loser
for us, and it causes you to erroneously assume that refinishing was a bad idea! A very ill wind for all sides!
Cleaning and Care
Common household cleaners such as "409"
or "Fantastik" do a wonderful job cleaning all resurfacing jobs, (particularly so since the nooks and crannies where
moisture, mold and mother nature generally get a foothold are now largely sealed) and do not void the warranty.
(hint: just like the finish on your car, if you notice the beautiful gloss finish
starting to dull after a year or two--- wax it! That's right! After a good cleaning, a hand-buffed coat of everyday
car-wax will make your New-Finish tub shine and sparkle)
