Q: How long will the new finish last?
A: A bathtub or fixture that is refinished by Bath Tech of Colorado, with correct care and maintenance, will last 10-15 years if not a lifetime!
Q: If my bathtub has been refinished before and the finish is failing, can it be refinished again?
A: A failing refinish job can be refinished by *stripping the old finish off of the existing fixture and starting over.
*Many companies will cut corners by using a method called “mechanically” stripping an old finish. This is done by power sanding off the area that may be peeling or bubbling off. They DO NOT remove the entire old finish. Therefore, the material that is NOT removed can and most likely will in turn fail again in the future.
Bath Tech of Colorado completely “chemically” strips off, any and all of, the existing finish leaving only the fixture’s original surface to be refinished once more.
Q: My bathtub has shower doors. Do they have to be removed before the bathtub is refinished? Do you do that?
A: Yes. We recommend that the shower doors be removed including the tracks. The customer can remove the tracks or we can remove them. We WILL NOT take responsibility for ANY damage to the shower doors or tracks during removal. There is an additional fee for removal and re-installation of shower doors.
Q: I want to replace my drain shoe and overflow plate…do you do that?
A: We always try to remove the *overflow plate but we DO NOT remove the drain shoe. If the customer or a plumber removes the drain shoe we can replace a new drain shoe and overflow plate that is provided by the customer.
* Bath Tech of Colorado WILL NOT take responsibility for broken or rusted screws or fasteners that may be damaged during the removal of an overflow plate. They must be replaced by the owner.
Q: Do I have to re-caulk my bathtub or do you do that?
A: We replace any and all hardware that WE removed. We also re-caulk and seal the fixture completely to insure a water-tight seal.
