A Common Theme

When dealing with multi family homes, apartments, rentals, etc. High traffic and turnover is a common occurrence. People usually only stay in a place for a year or less. Which means that damage to the interior is practically unavoidable. Between the normal wear and tear of daily life, moving in and out and other variables, It’s hard to predict the state of the residence once it is unoccupied.

Whether it’s blemishes, chips, scratches or dings, burn marks or stains. Keeping things looking pristine for the next resident can often be a troublesome and costly task. Obviously no one wants to replace their countertops, bathtub, shower or sink, every time this occurs. The biggest problem that we find is that even if people decide to replace these things because of these issues previously stated, there’s no guarantee that it will not happen again in a short amount of time. This is where refinishing becomes the most cost effective solution and an ideal replacement alternative.

With refinishing you’re able to solve these problems at a fraction of the price of replacement and cut your turn time into practically nothing. It can take days, maybe weeks to replace these things and get everything back in shape for your next tenant. So while you may end up having to refinish things more than once over the course of time. It will always be a cheaper and smarter solution.

On top of it all, you’re never stuck with the same thing. Prestige Refinishing provides an endless amount of color options, finishes and styles to choose from. Your ability to change the appearance doesn’t have to be dictated by budget at every turn.

Next time you’re thinking about replacement…..THINK AGAIN!!

Whether your selling, buying, renting or just managing, refinishing is an option for you too.  Let’s be honest, no matter how well you treat your home, wear and tear will happen over time.  Sometimes unforeseen events can also take place that cause damage or unsightly blemishes.  Would you really replace your car every time it got a scratch, chip or ding in it?  Of course not, that makes no sense!  Same thing goes for your home interior, maybe you just didn’t know it.

We know that everyone is always working on a budget and sometimes that can be a real headache to balance when it comes to updating, repairing or changing things within your home.  With refinishing, you can easily take the cost of what a project would have cost you and cut it in half.  Saving yourself not only money but time as well.  So if you’re looking to update your home or rental property this year, while saving time and money,  there is no more viable option than refinishing.

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Bathtub Refinishing

If you’ve found yourself looking at your bathtub and seriously considering a new one, you’re not alone. Home remodeling, particularly kitchen and bathroom remodeling, is hugely popular right now, and everyone wants their home to feel contemporary and fresh, not tired, worn out or outdated.

But you’re also probably aware that demolition and construction can be quite costly, and you want to keep expenses to a minimum. In this article, we’ll explain the advantages, as well as the disadvantages, of bathtub refinishing. Fair warning, though – there are very few disadvantages!

The Advantages of Bathtub Refinishing


A high quality refinishing job should last anywhere from ten to fifteen years. That being said, we’ll emphasize that “high quality” is the key phrase. A DIY refinishing kit purchased at one of the home improvement stores will not deliver a high-quality, durable refinishing result.

However, when you hire a professional refinisher to perform your bathtub refinishing project, they will ensure that proper preparation and restoration procedures are followed so that your bathtub will last for a long time.


Bathtub restoration utilizing the most modern techniques can be customized according to your individual taste with respect to recoloring, resurfacing and reglazing. In fact, the wide variety of colors and textures available is practically infinite.

Your bathtub refinishing expert will offer you the opportunity to custom-match your bathtub color to coordinate with other designer elements within your home. Of course, many of our clients turn to refinishing or recoloring merely to update the, shall we say, interesting color choices that were made twenty years ago or even longer.


When you choose to replace your bathtub, you are faced with with far more challenges than merely purchasing a new bathtub. You must consider the cost of demolition and removal of your current bathtub, making sure your new bathtub fits perfectly in the space, possibly rerouting of plumbing, new tile, trimming, hardware, or even flooring. The costs will begin to add up quite rapidly. Before you know it, a bathtub you purchased thought was a bargain at $350 has now mushroomed into a $1,500 construction project that has rendered your bathroom essentially useless for weeks. It’s not a pleasant process.

If you choose bathtub refinishing instead, the process is completed within 4-5 hours, with no demolition, no construction, no mess, and the bathtub is ready to use within 24 hours! And the price is far less than a complete replacement.
