How much will I save with re-glazing vs. replacement?

Re-glazing is the way to go if you DO NOT want to remodel your entire bathroom. It can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars over replacement. These costs add up and you can easily end up spending nearly $2,500 to replace your bathtub.

How long does the bathtub refinishing process take?

Our Re-glazing process typically only takes 3-4 hours to complete.

Does Renov8 offer a warranty?

We offer an industry leading LIFETIME warranty for residential work (HOMEOWNERS) and 2 years for high traffic commercial jobs like rental properties, hotels, motels, military bases and university housing.

How do I care for my new Re-glazed fixture?

We recommend Dow Scrubbing Bubbles, Mr. Clean or Fantastic. Stay away from Harsh chemicals and Pure Clorox.

What are your recommendations for cleaning agents?

Formula 409 all-purpose cleaner, Simple Green and regular dishwashing liquid are 3 of the most popular cleansers that we recommend. All cleansers should be the bleach free versions. Never use abrasives such as Ajax or Comet on any refinished surfaces.

Will my Re-glazed bathtub look like it has been painted?

Absolutely not it will look very much like a new tub. Our technicians pride themselves on the fact that it is quite difficult for an untrained eye to tell the difference between a new bathtub and a re-glazed one.

Is there an odor while the work is being done?

Our technicians use a full ventilation system to extract odors that naturally occur with our process. You may notice a slight odor after we are finished this typically is gone within a few hours.

What other surfaces do Renov8 work on?

Besides bathtubs, we offer a variety of refinishing services for almost any surface in your bath or kitchen including tile, sinks, countertops and vanities, and cabinets.

Can my counter tops be re-glazed?

Our re-glazing process works on a variety of countertop surfaces, including Formica, tile, and cultured marble. It also saves you money with our Stone-Flecks™ imitation stone finishing system. You can have that natural-stone look for a fraction of the cost of marble or granite!

Do you repair cracks, chips, and scratches in my bathtub?

We will fill in any chips or other imperfections in your bathtub or other surfaces prior to the refinishing process. We make your damaged porcelain, acrylic, or fiberglass surface look as good as new.

What makes Renov8 different from other refinishing companies?

We only use the highest quality materials in our refinishing process but our technicians are what set us apart.

Is the new finish the same as the original finish?

No, it’s not. Anyone that tells you that it is porcelain is deceiving you. It’s a synthetic which when applied hardens to a beautiful high gloss porcelain-like luster. The Renov8 process is a unique process developed specifically for bathtubs. It is laboratory tested to meet the highest standards of product performance and quality. Our long list of satisfied customers proves that claim and guarantees your complete satisfaction.

Do You Change Any of The Plumbing Fixtures?

Plumbing problems should be resolved before the tub is re-glazed/ the material needs to stay dry for at least 12 hrs to cure.

Can I use the bathtub before you arrive?

Yes, the tub does not need to be dry when we arrive. You can use it right up to the minute before we get there.

Can I change the color?

Yes, for an additional charge we can re-glaze in any color you wish.
