 Bathtub Refinishing Articles


 

    

 

Bathtub refinishing also known as bathtub resurfacing, bathtub reglazing or bathtub re-enameling is the process of refreshing the surface of a worn, damaged bathtub to a like-new condition. This process typically involves repairing any damaged areas.

 

                    

 

Caulking Your Tub and Shower Caulking the connection between your shower walls and tub prevents leaks and reduces mildew buildup. and removing caulking joints between tiles and your tub is an annual bathroom maintenance job.

No Silicone..

 

 If you have tile shower walls, there is a very good possibility that a leak could develop between the tile and the tub. As the house moves (a natural process that occurs in every home), a hairline crack can occur that allows water to get into the joint. Once water gets in, there is no telling how much damage can be done. There's another good reason to recaulk. If you've tried to remove the black mildew stains from caulk, you know the blemishes are often unbudging. That's because the stains are often behind the caulk — between the caulk and the wall. The answer, of course, is to remove the caulk, kill the mildew, and then replace the caulk.
         

     

    Glazed tiles are coated , which is then baked into the surface of the clay. The glaze provides an unlimited array of colors and designs as well as protects the tile from staining. A glazed tile is already stain proof, so there is no purpose to putting on a sealer. However, the grout joint between the tiles is usually very porous and generally made of a cement-based material. Therefore, grout joints typically will need to be sealed and maintained properly to prevent stains and discoloration. Impregnating sealers such as All-Purpose Grout Sealer go into the grout joint and protect against water and oil-based stains.

          When we think of the dirtiest places in our homes, we typically think of the toilet. But according to “Today” on MSNBC, the kitchen sink is dirtier than most bathrooms. That includes the faucet, basin and drain stopper. So disinfesting your kitchen sink is really important and Apartment Therapy has a great way to do this. First, wet the entire surface of the sink. Then, pour baking soda over the area and scrub. After, rinse it completely. It’s good to use a toothbrush to get into the caulk seal and other tough areas. Next, pour white vinegar onto paper towels and line the basin with them. Allow them to sit for 20 minutes and throw the papers away. Then, wash down the sink with good old soap and water -- including the facet and knobs. Finally give the area a rinse with water.

           

          COUNTER TOP

          Kitchen cabinet color and finish choices are plentiful. Choosing colors, for me, is the happiest, most rewarding aspect of any home improvement project; it's a chance for me to play with different ideas until I hit on one that clicks. 

          With kitchen counter, you can choose one solid color throughout or go with the two-toned design that is really hot right now. Top this off with the antique distressed look, and your kitchen is instantly transformed into a timeless showpiece. You can have a solid base color , and then spice it up with a contrasting and/or bold color for the island in the center. You can choose several complementary colors to accent one overall base color. It really is up to you to follow the color wherever your heart leads. For a bold, contemporary, sleek look, you really cannot go wrong with black counter top, or the contrast of black and white, with stainless steel and grays mixed in. White as the dominant color tends to be the classical, most popular choice for a clean and functional look.The style you choose in your overall design will determine the kind of finish you use. A high-gloss finish is great for an ultra-contemporary, shiny, clean and modern look. Semi-gloss is the most traditional and functional with most colors and design styles. Matte works well for a more subtle look. The easiest way to get an idea of what you like and don't like until you latch onto something more specific is to use samples, and browse photos and design books. Mark the ones that really speak to you. Go to your design expert prepared with this, and    your  project preparation will go a lot more smoothly.

          One common misconception of bathtub refinishing--most refinishing is done on-site. Refinishing technicians are highly aware of the fact that they are in a private residence, so they take precautions to minimize over spray and other mess. After masking and drop cloths are set up, the tub is repaired (nicks and holes filled), primed, sealed, and painted with a highly durable, glossy top-coat of any color you choose.
