Is your bathroom still in sound structural condition but is looking a little tired, worn, or dated? There is no need to go to the expense of a complete renovation. You can have a professional resurface your bathroom for a fraction of the cost of replacement. Here’s what you need to know.
Bathroom resurfacing is basically applying a new coating to a bathroom surface in order to bring it back to new without the associated costs of replacing it altogether. The basic process involves repairing any small chips, cracks, or rust, preparing the surface, applying the new coating to the surface, and allowing it to cure fully. Once fully cured and dried, the surface can be used in much the same way as the standard existing surface.
Resurfacing the bathroom allows you to give it a “facelift”. Tired of that dated green bath or your tiles look old and daggy? Resurfacing allows you to change the colour easily. White is the most popular option but many different colours are available.
You’d be surprised at how many different things that can be resurfaced in your bathroom. These include:
Floor tiles may be resurfaced but because of the wear on the tiles, the new coating will not last as long as it otherwise should. The items to be resurfaced need to be in relatively good structural condition in order for resurfacing to be worthwhile. If they are badly damaged, then the professional may advise that replacement is the only real option.
Materials that are suitable for resurfacing include porcelain, acrylics, fibreglass, enamels, ceramic tiles, vitreous china, and laminates. The professional will be able to advise you if you are unsure as to whether your bathroom materials are suitable for resurfacing.
Choosing a Bathroom Resurfacing Professional
There are some things to ask when choosing a bathroom resurfacing professional. Ask what product they use and how long you will be unable to use your bathroom for while the product cures (using the bathroom before it is fully cured will result in damage to the new finish). The professional should be happy to give you estimated costs, or visit your bathroom to give an accurate quote where necessary. Check their experience and qualifications, and ask to see references where possible.
