  • Any type of bathtub – porcelain bathtubs, cast iron bathtubs, fiberglass bathtubs, clawfoot bathtubs, pedestal bathtubs
  • Any kind of shower or shower enclosure, including fiberglass showers and plastic surrounds
  • Any type of sink – porcelain sinks, cast iron sinks, kitchen sinks, farm sinks, bathroom sinks, pedestal sinks
  • Ceramic tile – floor tiles, wall tiles, shower tiles, bathroom tiles, kitchen tiles
  • Any type of countertop – ceramic, laminate, formica, wood

We refinish, restore, repair, resurface, reglaze, and recolor all types of surfaces, including: porcelain, fiberglass, ceramic, laminate, formica, metals, plastics, and wood.

Each project is different, depending on the amount of repairs, type of preparation, and the actual surface condition. As a frame of reference, the majority of our bathtub refinishing projects are completed within 5-6 hours. Custom kitchen countertops usually take a bit longer – maybe closer to 8-9 hours. Feel free to give us a call to discuss your refinishing needs. After answering a few simple questions, we should be able to give you a more accurate time frame.

That won’t be a problem. One of the major reasons for refinishing is due to some type of damage to the surface. Part of our refinishing process is to repair any type of damage. Feel free to contact us for a professional opinion!

We fix all types of damage, to a wide variety of different surfaces. Scratches, discoloration, cracks, chips, rust, pitting, dull spots, cuts, burns and any other kind of damage can be repaired to look just like new!

Absolutely! The refinishing process that we use is exactly the same as the process used in the factory – delivering a “like new” finish.

The normal wear rate is comparable to the original surface. With proper care and maintenance, bathtub refinishing can last 10-15 years or more.

Not at all! Any surface can be refinished to look like porcelain, stone or granite, in any color that you choose.

Prestige Refinishing offers all the standard colors, in addition to any custom color you choose. We also offer custom finishes, such as stone or granite, in a variety of different colors.

If you choose a stone or granite finish – for kitchen countertops or bathroom vanities, for instance – we offer the following color selections:

If you’re dead set on refinishing your own bathtub, we’re not going to stop you. But we also strongly advise against it. The DIY kits from the big box home improvement stores usually fail within just a few short months, and you’ll be right back at square one. Most of them consist of an epoxy coating that is either rolled or brushed on the surface, or even sprayed on with an aerosol – causing uneven coverage, drips, and brush marks. That “like new” finish can only be achieved with well-trained refinishing experts using professional equipment and quality products.

Replacing your bathtub, sink, shower, kitchen countertops, tile or vanity could run into the thousands of dollars. But refinishing them would only cost a few hundred – a fraction of the cost!

Absolutely! Won’t it be great to have them repaired?
