Step 4 - Tub Sanding

The fourth step calls for lightly sanding the entire bathtub to roughen the original finish. In some cases, the tub may also be etched with acid to help the new coating adhere. The sanded and etched tub is then vacuumed to remove any debris.

Can I Resurface My Bathtub Myself?

While it is possible for you to paint your bathtub, most homeowners lack the proper equipment, commercial coatings and training to correctly resurface their tub. Here are a few reasons why resurfacing your own tub isn’t something you should take on:

  • In order for reglazing to last, a proper sanding, acid wash and commercial coating product need to be used. Homeowners don’t typically have access to these supplies. Without the proper preparation, tub paint won’t bond permanently. It will peel soon.
  • Proper resurfacing requires correct wet sanding equipment and coating spray tools to complete the job. Homeowners don’t usually have these in their shed.
  • The local hardware store or online shop will often charge $100-$150 for tub and tile painting kits. And, since you’ll also need to rent and learn how to use commercial equipment to do it right, the time and money savings end up being zero when you take this on yourself.

In the end, it will save you a lot of grief, frustration and funds to just hire it out.

How Much Does Bath Resurfacing Cost?

In the Northeast part of the country, bathroom resurfacing services will typically cost a few hundred dollars for the tub alone; definitely far less than what you will spend to install a new tub when you factor in the cost of the bathtub, the cost of labor for tub removal, the cost of the dumpster to discard the tub and the cost of delivery and installation. Adding on tile, showers, sinks or countertops will naturally increase the investment. For a specific quote on your tub, call us today.
