Refinish a Tub

Q: The finish is worn on our bathtub and instead of ripping up the bathroom and replacing it, I was wondering if there are products available to refinish it.

 

A: There are tub-refinishing kits available that use special cleansers and fillers specifically for refinishing porcelain tubs. The project uses toxic chemicals, so set up an exhaust fan to vent the air while working. You can expect to do a lot of intense scrubbing, scraping and sanding, and a spray gun is almost always needed to apply the epoxy coating. You can find refinishing kits at: www.tubcote.com, www.tubbyusa.com and www.armorpoxy.com.
