Homeowners often consider replacing a tile wall when they replace the bathtub. Before you rip out your tub and tile, think about the cost and time required for replacement. It’s not a quick and inexpensive fix. In fact, replacement isn’t even necessary when the option to refinish is available. Like quality bathtub refinishing, you can save up to 75% of replacement costs by refinishing your bathroom tile walls.
Whether your tiles are chipped, the grout is crumbling, or your bathroom needs a complete makeover, refinishing is a more affordable alternative to replacing your tile wall. Refinish First offers a variety of colors and textures. Our Natural Accents finishes have also become very popular for bathroom tile walls.
The best time to refinish a tile wall is when you have your bathtub refinished. Your Refinish First professional can offer the best pricing if you have both the bathtub and tile walls refinished at the same time. We offer free estimates, so don’t hesitate to contact us!
Refinishing bathroom wall tile is very similar to bathtub refinishing. Refinish First uses a two-step cleaning process to remove soap scum, body oil and dirt. This ensures that no contaminants interfere with Miracle Refinish First’s unique bonding process and the new finish.
If needed, we float additional grout over the existing grout to fill any voids and provide a smoother appearance. We use a squeegee to spread a small amount of grout over the surface. Once the new grout sets up and adequately dries, the technician will clean the tile and apply Refinish First’s MM-4 bonding agent to ensure that the new finish adheres.
After the application of hi-tech acrylic coatings, the refinished tile will have a bright, glossy finish with clean and even grout lines. One of the greatest advantages of having tile walls refinished is that the grout is permanently sealed, eliminating any need to clean or silicone seal the grout.
