Is the term "reglazing" the same as "refinishing"?
Reglazing is a term most often used by refinishers in the porcelain
and tile refinishing industry to describe the new surface applied to
an old bathtub or shower fixture upon completion of the refinishing
process. It is often interchanged with the words refinish, refinished
Is the new finish the same as the original finish?
No. The original porcelain or ceramic tile surface is baked at
temperatures up to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit. That is why the
surfaces are so hard and scrub resistant. It's impossible to
heat any new coatings at those temperatures without disintegrating
the surrounding home. However, the ever evolving chemical
industry is continuously discovering new formulas that
provide new coatings that are "porcelain and ceramic like".
While not yet as hard as a factory baked porcelain or ceramic
finish, it is the finish that can take the abuse and through
normal use give your old bath or shower many added years of good and beautiful use.
How long does it take to refinish a bathtub?
Depending on the condition of the tub, anywhere from 2 to 4
hours. That's one of the great benefits of refinishing/reglazing
instead of replacing. The works all done in less than a day,
at a fraction of the cost and none of the mess.
When can we use the tub after it has been refinished?
24 hours after completion of the job.
