Advantages of Bathtub Refinishing
Bathtub refinishing is the process of making damaged areas or refreshing worn out surfaces of the tube by use of etching acid which repairs chicks and cracks which this acid used provides mechanical adhesion on the repaired parts.
There is also another method of bathtub resurfacing where by the process is uses adhesion-promoting boding agents which increase the forces of attraction between the cracked areas mending them together, after use of this adhesion agents like siranes, coating is done which refreshes bathtub surface.
Bathtub refinishing starts with cleaning of the tube where by soap scum, mineral deposits, body oils are removed; repairing of the cracks follows by use of bond-enhancing agents to ensure solid bond between the surface and the new finish and then a fine-finish spray is applied to increase durability.
Bathtub refinishing is very important both to the house owner and the bathroom condition as it’s a more cost effective way of bringing the shine back of bathtubs, showers, countertops that are worn out, dull or that are extremely hard to clean and refinishing bathtubs instead of replacing them gives enables that brand new look at a fraction of the original cost of replacement.
Refinishing process will only involve the improving the state of the tube or the ceramics hence unlike the replacing bathtubs which will include extra processes leading to high cost as plumbing system must be altered to fit the new tub, tiles and floor job will be included adding extra cost not forgetting tearing of the wall to fit the required space of the tub as its better refinishing than replacing.
It takes less time to refinish a bathtub than replacing and installing another one which might take a longer period of time as the process of installing another has more tasks involved like doing plumbing, cleaning that area of work and even replacing tiles and might take a week or two.
Bathtub remodeling is advantageous as one is able to choose any color of his/her choice without paying extra fee on it and this is best for those people who think they don’t like the color of their bathtub and during refinishing, one can choose that color he/she admires and its done on the tube increasing the beauty of your bathroom without spending a lot of money.
Refinishing bathtubs enables them to last long and when one refinishes his tub, it can last for even more than fifteen years rather considering replacement as all we need is how much a tube can last long and this can put a tub running for many years.
Bathtub replacing will mean that landfills will be excavated during mining of material making ceramics; a lot of energy will be used in these industries which make tubs leading to air pollution hence might not be the best option, this makes bathtub refinishing a better way of resolving this all and protecting the environment as it will only involve reusing one over and over.
