Refinishing Your Bathtub in Chicago?


Bathtub Refinishing, also known to Chicagoans as glazing, re-surfacing or re-enameling, is the process of restoring or refreshing the tub’s surface, due to over-wear or damage. Popular bathtub coatings in Chicago:

Urethanes

Polymers

Hybrid-Polyester Polyurethanes

Epoxies

Depending on the Chicago bathtub refinishing contractor these special coatings may be rolled, sprayed or brushed on. When done correctly, your bathtub should end up with a smooth finish.

Bathtub Refinishing/Resurfacing Process


Rather than replacing your bathtub you have opted for the skills of Chicago refinishing pro. Here is generally how the process works for refinishing the bathtub.

Prepare the Surface:

Preparing The Surface is the very first thing that has to be done. Instead of just prepping the damaged area, clean the entire surface area with a chemical cleaner. The chemical cleaner will remove dirt residue, will remove soap scum, and it will greatly improve the bonding agent.

Rinse & Dry:

Next step would be to thoroughly rinse and dry the entire surface area.

Marking off Area:

For marking off the area in question, tape plastic or paper over the surface that you do not want to paint/refinish. This notion is applied more so if you’re painting with a spray gun.

Sanding:

Now it’s time to use some form of sander. A gentle sander works great because it will roughen the surface area perfectly. This action will allow the paint material to bond with the surface much more easier.

This process is rather simple, but a good thing to know is that if your tub is made from porcelain, you should apply a bonding agent before refinishing. Just allow about 5 minutes for the bonding agent to dry, then proceed.

The Chicago Bathtub Refinishing pro may use a second method using a primer


Paint Pot:

Pour the suggested amount of primer into the “paint pot” of the spray gun then attach it right to the spray gun.

Finish Consistency:

For the possible consistent finish, you should paint the surface with a swift back and forth motion. You’ll be applying two coats of primer, but allow at least 30 minutes to pass in-between coats.

Acrylic Top Coat:

Next up, you should apply the acrylic top coat, which will be done in three coatings. Allow 30 minutes to pass in-between each acrylic coating.

Let stand for a couple days:

In conclusion, do not use the bathtub until after two days have passed.
