If you’re thinking of replacing any countertops, sinks, or fixtures in your house, it may be worth considering refinishing first. The reason is that it can be a cost-saving and professional alternative to replacing an appliance or fixture that doesn’t need to be. However, if you decide to go the refinishing route, you’ll need to find an experienced and skilled refinishing company.
There are many things you should look for in a shower refinishing company, such as years of experience, insurance certificates, and technical skills. This article will provide you with tips on how to choose the best shower refinishing company.
Before hiring a refinishing company, you’ll want to find out how long they’ve been in business and whether they are reputable. Chances are, if a company has years of refinishing and refurbishing experience, it’ll be a reputable or popular company.
However, if a refinishing company has just set up a shop, you may want to skip them and work with someone who has a track record of success instead. The more customers they’ve worked with, the greater their knowledge will be on how to refinish your type of shower or other areas of your bathroom.
Before hiring anyone to remodel or refinish your bathroom, always ensure the company is licensed and insured. Refinishing jobs usually only take a day to complete, but they can involve several different types of equipment to get your shower looking as good as new. Unless your contractor is licensed and insured, you’ll be responsible for any damage or accidents that are caused on your premise.
In addition, working without a license is a serious offense. Having a license ensures that the contractor you hire has all the necessary skills, training, and legal permissions to carry out the job correctly and efficiently.
The mark of a professional shower refinishing company is that they use high-quality and durable materials that will last a long time. If the glazing or refurbishing materials are less than adequate, your shower will quickly lose its luster.
In addition, if your shower refinishing company tells you it will take longer to complete the job, they are likely using low-grade materials. To ensure only quality materials are used, ask how long the coating takes to dry off and the details of the job from start to finish. If a refinisher is confident in their work, they will provide you with past job photos, samples, or videos on how they carry out the job from start to finish.
You’ll want to ask upfront what kind of warranty the refinishing project comes with. It’s even better if you can get it in writing. If you think the warranty on your refinished shower won’t last more than two years or is an unrealistic promise, you’ll want to skip that particular refinishing company. Professional shower refinishing companies always give you a realistic warranty, typically lasting up to 5 years.
