How to tell if your tub needs refinishing

December 2, 2020

Whether you’re doing a remodel or are just starting to notice that your tub is starting to look old, reglazing or refinishing can be just the thing to add some new life to your bathroom. If you’re starting to wonder, “Does my tub need refinishing?” or “Where can I get a tub refinishing near me?” New Finish Tub and Counter has the answers to both of these questions. Keep reading to see our list of things to look for when you’re trying to decide if your tub needs refinishing.

Your tub is chipping or cracking

Everything in a home is going to take some level of punishment over the course of time. Especially something that gets used several times each day as a bathtub. It’s not uncommon for a tub to get chipped or start cracking after years of use. A tub refinishing can repair those chips and cracks and make it look like they were never there. This will not only return your tub back to its original beauty but restore its strength and integrity as well.

Your tub is discolored or faded

Years of grime, soap and shampoo dyes, and hard water deposits can fade the color of your tub and made it look discolored. Discoloration can also mean there have been changes in the integrity of the plastic, fiberglass, or finish of your tub. While a faded tub is nothing to be ashamed of, it’s unappealing and takes away from the overall aesthetic of a bathroom. Additionally, refinishing your discolored tub also applies a renewed surface to protect the plastic or fiberglass to maintain its original color.

Your tub can no longer get clean

The surface of your tub can get stained from the buildup of soap scum and grime that comes with regular use. Eventually, these stains will get embedded into the material of your tub and can’t be cleaned off. As a part of our tub refinishing process, our team will get down the surface of the tub itself and get rid of those unsightly stains. A fresh tub reglazing will then provide added protection to prevent this from happening again.

You don’t like the color of your tub

If you’re remodeling your bathroom, it might also be time to change the color of your bathtub. A tub refinishing done by the professionals at New Finish Tub and Counter can change the color of your tub to transform the old and outdated look of your tub into a tub that looks like new.
