A bathtub is often the focal point of your bathroom, and if it looks grungy, scummy, or run-down, the rest of your bathroom will, too. Tri-Star Refinishing specializes in bathtub refinishing, a process that repairs the surface of your tub so that it looks shiny, clean, and brand-new again. We are located in Youngstown and serve the surrounding areas of Ohio and Pennsylvania. Contact us at 877-610-8827 to schedule a tub refinishing. We’ve been making bathrooms shine since 1997.
Refinish Bathtub VS. Replace Bathtub
Is your tub characterized by scum lines, chips in the surface, and discoloration? If so, these flaws don’t have to stay forever. Instead of scrapping your tub and installing a new one, let us restore and transform your existing one. View our before-and-after photos to see the incredible difference that bathtub reglazing makes.Below are some of the reasons that more clients are choosing to boost their bathroom aesthetics by refinishing a bathtub instead of buying a new one.
- Expense: Buying a new tub is 8-9 times more expensive than bathtub resurfacing, and both options give you similar results. Our pricing is very affordable, and we often even run specials and coupons.
- Time: While it only takes Tri-Star Refinishing 2-3 hours to give your tub a makeover, it often takes companies 2-3 weeks to install a new one.
- Disturbance: Tub reglazing doesn’t disturb the rest of your bathroom. However, when you install a new tub you often have to deal with noise, re-plumbing problems, and the hassle of re-tiling projects.
Tri-Star Refinishing will give you the look and feel of a brand-new bathtub without the cost. We also offer sink refinishing, countertop refinishing, and tile refinishing so that you can give your entire bathroom some TLC.
The Tub Refinishing Process
If you’re wondering exactly how we make old tubs look brand-new, read about our refinishing process and watch the video below.
Our refinishing services start with the removal of your drain cover and overflow plate. During these initial steps, we also remove any caulking that exists around the edges of the tub. If you’ve had tub reglazing done in the past, we strip the old glaze from the tub. After your tub is stripped down to its most basic form, we complete any needed repairs. Often times, the bathtub surface will have chips, holes, or cracks in it. We repair these areas with body filler and then sand the surface to a smooth finish. Before we begin refinishing the bathtub, we mask off the entire tub to protect your bathroom. Then, using a tack cloth, we clean the dirt and dust out of the bathtub and sterilize it. Next we prime the bathtub, apply three coats of finish, and caulk the edges. In just 12 hours, your bathtub will have a beautiful, glossy finish that you can use and enjoy for years to come.
Countertop RefinishingLet’s not forget about our incredible countertop refinishing services. If your bathroom needs some extra space for the wife’s belongings or your hair products, or just simply looks drab, we can refinish and reinstall any counter you’d like. From the affordable laminate-type options to elegant marble, your new sink and counter is just a call away.
In the end, our bathtub refinishing process can transform even the dirtiest bathtub into an inviting haven for a relaxing bubble bath.
