Bathtub refinishing is much more then making your old tub look new again. Professional refinishing services seal off the lead that leaches into the bath water caused by worn bathtubs. Most people don't know that porcelain bathtubs contain lead. However, once refinished a new glaze coat is chemically welded into and onto the the old surface in a 1 - 2 punch that seals off the dangerous lead.

Honestly, This was one of the toughest jobs I have ever done. However, the Gentleman was so nice it made this a very enjoyable experience. I honored the original quote even though I had to end up making (3) trips.
Bathtub cracks are not usually this difficult to repair. This man was in a spot because it was a custom size and finding a replacement was not really an option. However, I think you will see that he was very happy with the completed project!
Another blessed day. This Bathtub was a little more work then I thought it was going to be and had to actually make a 2 day trip out of it. However, the Gentleman was very nice and I was able to get the repair looking real good. When the tub cracked several of the cracks raised up by over an inch. Some were off from one side to the other by almost a 1/4". However, I was able to get it done after 2 days and many hours of hard work. Bathtub Refinishing, Dallas, Forney
I learned that appearances can be very deceiving I knew this tub was going to need some extra work and It was a little more than I bargained for. The epoxy coating had been poured on over half an inch thick to cover the rust and previously repaired hole. I was able to keep the quote at the original price. The young lady was very appreciative. I had to use a power saw to cut through the epoxy and strip it back. It came off in a chunk about 2ft. x 2ft. I then prepped the rusted area so it would not continue to rust and then resealed the existing patch just to be safe. After that I etched the tub and tile and applied 7 coats of synthetic porcelain. I did warn the customer the tub floor would not be perfectly smooth, but it would last and be safe. She said "Whatever, you do I will be fine with". I smoothed it out better then I thought I could and the end result was a gorgeous Tub and tile restoration that is sealed tight, looks great, will last for many, many years and the grout and caulk lines are sealed so the never mildew!

I had refinished this tub about 2 weeks ago but the tile guys came in soon after I finished and did not protect the tub. It had grout ground into the coating and they had really did a number on the tub. I actually went out there with the intention of touching it up at no charge but once I seen it I knew it was going to be a major job. The reason I say it was a blessing is because the man told me he knew it was not a warranty issue. The tile guys did not even finish after they seen how bad the tub was messed up. I have found that if you are honest with people and just do your job. More times than not people will pay you and not take advantage of you. They are well aware that it takes money just to roll out of bed in the morning I think most of the issues come about with some of the younger generation that simply don't know how to look people in the eyes and just be honest! Personally, I have found that being honest and respectful bridges any gap such as age, race, religion, culture, political differences just honesty and respect for the other person.
I was blessed today with having a great job from a guy that was extremely nice! He had everything cleaned and ready to go so I was able to get in and start the process quickly.
It was a cultured marble bathtub that had cracked up along the side. Most people dont know cultured marble is crushed limestone and fiberglass resin. So I was able to apply 2 coats of liquid fiberglass resin over the entire tub which covered and filled in the crack making this a solid unit. After the fiberglass resin I applied 7 coats of synthetic porcelain to give an excellent gloss and durable shine to the surface!
Please turn your speakers down before playing the video. The machine noise is loud... Sorry. I had been posting pictures of my jobs before and after but I thought a video may be more helpful. Please keep in mind this is not a high def video, It looks much better in person but this is just to give you a visual of the before and after process. Thank you for watching!

Today I met an absolutely wonderful couple with a precious little 7 month old baby. I told them my baby just turned 20 this month! Seems like yesterday, it really does! They had a Gorgeous stand alone 'skirted' bathtub that had been painted by the previous homeowner and they needed it sanded down and refinished. Bathtub Refinishing, Dallas
Most days and I mean literally 99% of the time I am so blessed with working for great people that understand the pro's and cons of being self employed. I feel that by doing the work myself, not trying to meet a quota, not worrying if a job takes an extra hour allows me to bring my clients the absolute best refinishing at the absolute best prices! Today was one of those 'bust' days. I drove out to the job to find their was no electricity. I am positive the owner did not know and to him it was just no electricity so lets reschedule. To me it was no Electricity so I miss a day of work! That is the down fall of being self employed. I only make money when I work. I schedule one to two jobs a day. So in the event of a snag it literally means that 40 minute drive there was wasted. The 40 minute drive back now puts me in over an hour of wasted time and Gas. However, we need to always put a positive spin on a negative circumstance so I am thankful that I have work, I am thankful that 99% of the time it is for absolutely wonderful Christian people I work for!

Today was one of those extremely rare days when I really should have charged extra! I spent almost an hour and a half getting these two tubs clean enough to start the refinishing process. I know that sounds terrible of me to say but I have never charged more for a job then I quote the job for. These tubs were full of loose trash and had grout stuck all over them! these pictures are after I had been cleaning them for about an hour! It's honestly not the extra work, but it's just with all this dust it is so hard to get the results I know are possible. However, I just worked through it, honored the bid and the results are below.
Rowlett, Rockwall, Mesquite and surrounding areas Bathtub Refinishing. Refinishing not only updates your bathtub, shower, tile, vanity or counter tops instantly but also updates your bathroom instantly by making the old, worn or ugly look new again. Refinishing a porcelain tub can also protect your family from the very real dangers of lead poisoning!
As your porcelain tub loses it's shine the seal or Glaze is being removed. This allows lead to leech into the bath water which is especially damaging to children that use bath time as play time! When children bathe they love usually stay in the tub for extended periods of time and have toys to occupy them. As any of us parents know those toys inevitably end up in the child's mouth! There are documented cases of children suffering from lead poisoning caused by lead leeching into the bath water. This can be fixed by professional refinishing! It literally takes a few hours. The tub is back in service the next day and the extra benefit is the bathtub will look great again and be much easier to keep clean!
I met a Gentleman over the weekend here in Dallas that needed help with his cultured marble tub. He had paid another guy $75.00 to fix a crack in the tub and when we looked at it close. We both came to the conclusion this guy had no idea what he was doing! The best we could figure out was they had put liquid nails on the crack and it was literally still in a bead over the crack. We also found an additional 6 cracks, which is not uncommon. However, The owner needed 2 things done. Our first priority was to make sure these cracks are sealed off correctly so water does not find its way under the house. That alone is worth the cost of refinishing! However, we wanted to make good on the 2nd priority which was to make this bathtub look new again! So we got to work. He knew he needed the Gold Package so I could do this in 2 trips.
This took 2 trips and 2 hours each day. It will be ready to use Monday 3-3-14. Bathtub Refinishing | Dallas
