Welcome to the World of Professional Bathroom Resurfacing
- If your bath is chipped, scratched, stained or simply the wrong colour, you can restore it to showroom condition by resurfacing in-situ at a fraction of the cost of replacement. Simply resurfacing the bath can uplift the appearance of the entire bathroom.
- If you have a basins and vanities that are also in poor condition, you don’t need to replace them. We can give the external surfaces a showroom appearance by resurfacing, and the cost will be much less than the cost of replacement, provided the work is done at the same time.
- If your bathroom looks old and tired, it is likely that the wall tiles are rather dated and grout lines discoloured. Resurfacing will not only produce a total transformation in the appearance of the bathroom, but also seal grout lines permanently so that they are no longer susceptible to mould and disclouration. The cost and disruption will much less than the cost and time required for replacement.
- This is where bath, basin and wall tiles are resurfaced at the same time. It doesn't matter what your bathroom looks like, it can be made to look a lot better in 2 to 3 days by resurfacing in-situ, including walls and floors at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods.
Antique Bath Resurfacing
- if you like heritage decor, a beautifully resurfaced free-standing antique (‘claw foot’) bath tub will be your centrepiece!
- Nagging problems with such things as rusting chips, fiberglass cracks, etc. may be repairable economically, in which case the cost of full replacement or resurfacing can be delayed.
- Bath, shower and floor surfaces can be very slippery when wet. Reduce the risk of painful by taking appropriate anti-slip precautions in the bathroom and around the home.

Sometimes referred to as bath refinishing, bath reglazing or bath re-enameling, bath resurfacing is an on-site process for repairing and renewing the worn surface of built-in and free-standing bath tubs.
is the best and most economic way to restore your bath to showroom condition if it is worn, scratched, stained and difficult to clean. Ripping out and replacing with new is a very costly option, whereas bath resurfacing is a simpler and cheaper way to achieve a new finish, with all work being completed on site without removal.
The Resurfacing Process
usually takes between 4 and 6 hours for a built-in bath which can then be back in service the following day. Any colour can be blended to match, although by far the most popular colour of choice is white. Read more about bath Resurfacing Costs
Most completed work will carry up to 7 years warranty, but with correct use and cleaning, the new surfaces should possess a minimum scrub life of at least 10 years.
Old basins and vanities can be repaired and resurfaced either on their own or as part of a bathroom resurfacing project. Rust, chips, stains and scratches are common and most can be corrected prior to resurfacing. However, badly rusted steel and cracked vitreous china may not be repairable.
The cost of basin resurfacing
will be less than the cost of replacement and installation, provided the work is completed in conjunction with other resurfacing in the same bathroom, and is subject to inspection because of the wide variation in types, size and condition.
Wall tiles in older bathrooms can develop a number of problems, most of which can be fixed without removal. Decaying grout lines in wet areas, holes from previous fixtures that have since been removed, chips, cracks, ugly patterns and unfashionable colours are examples of what can be fixed by tile resurfacing
What can’t be fixed by resurfacing alone are such things as loss of tile adhesion due to rising damp or plumbing leaks, extensive crazing and continuous cracks caused by building movement.
The impact and attractiveness of tile resurfacing will dramatically improve the appearance of your bathroom. In addition, grout lines are repaired and resurfaced at the same time as the tiles so that they are no longer susceptible to mould and discolouration.
Give your tired old Bathroom a new lease of life. It doesn't matter what it looks like, it will look a whole lot better after a bathroom makeover using the Classic Surface
bathroom resurfacing system. Any combination of bath, basin, wall tile, vanity and floor tile resurfacing will substantially enhance the appearance of the bathroom.
All surfaces are repaired as outlined above. Issues relating to damp-proofing, problematic plumbing and wall or floor repair should be resolved before bathroom resurfacing
Toilets, pedestal basins, vanities, old cupboards and other outmoded fixtures may either be replaced or resurfaced depending on condition and preferences. Outmoded colours and tile designs can be replaced by sanitary white or other matching colour of choice. Floor tiles can either be anti-slipped without change of appearance or resurfaced with a built-in anti-slip feature.
Bathroom resurfacing costs
will in general depend on the size and general condition of the bathroom.
ANTIQUE BATH RESURFACING__
Free standing 'clawfoot' bath resurfacing is sometimes referred to as antique bath refinishing, reglazing or re-enameling. The restoration process is thorough, commencing with sand-blasting to remove all rust. The outside of the bath tub is resurfaced either to a glass-like finish or to the original cast surface appearance in colours that match or contrast with the light or dark colours in the floor tile design.
The surface of the inside of the bath tub is repaired and reconditioned prior to application of a proprietary top coat system. The tub is then cured, feet attached and prepared for delivery. There are choices for the ball and claw feet. The original feet can be supplied in the same resurfaced colour as the outside of the bath, or in a baked, metalised chrome or gold finish. Alternatively, copies can be made in solid brass with highly polished finished.BATH REPAIR__
Bath tubs are predominantly porcelain coated cast iron, stove enamelled, pressed steel or moulded acrylic with fibreglass backing. Each type has its own strengths and weaknesses and in most cases accidental damage can be repaired. A timely bath repair
can stop rust, fill holes, hide chips and remove burns, but no matter how good the repair, it can't be guaranteed in the same way as the original or a complete resurface.
The average cost of a call out depends on travelling time and time spent on the job. Most often it will be between $100 and $200.
Prevention is better than cure! Slip fall accidents occur in many places around the home and at the office - stepping out of the bath, standing in the shower, wet front entrance steps, wet patios, sloping pathways, poolside, and so on. With so many different slip-fall hazards, effective prevention requires more than one method.
An effective anti-slip system
may comprise any combination of particle enhanced coatings, surface etches, abrasive appliques, anti-slip treads and anti-slip stair nosings. Help protect your family from slips and falls - arrange an inspection today!
