The Refinishing Process

Refinishing the surfaces in your home or business comes with many benefits. It is generally faster and cheaper than if you choose to replace these surfaces. This creates less downtime, a big bonus for businesses especially. The labor involved is reduced, although the process does have many steps.

When refinishing a bathtub, the surface is cleaned thoroughly before an acid is applied to make the surface rough. This prevents the possibility of peeling or chipping later and helps the glaze adhere to the tub. The glaze is left to cure, and then the bathtub is sanded, buffed and polished. Bathtubs typically take only three to five hours to refinish and are ready to use within 24 hours.

When refinishing tile, it is first washed to get rid of any residue. Any chips that are present are filled in and then the tiles are re-grouted. Lastly, the finish is applied.

Countertop and tile refinishing from Refinish First comes with two different options. They can do a solid color or speckled finish or a stone finish. Countertops can also be repaired if they are accidentally scorched or chipped. The actual time required for the refinishing process can vary slightly depending on the finish option chosen for countertops.

The refinishing process can be done on many different surfaces from porcelain and cultured marble to laminate and tile. The bonding agent used by Refinish First creates a chemical bond between the old and new surface creating a surface that can last for 15 to 20 years or longer with the proper care.
