1) Learn to live with the problem
2) Bear extra costs and convenience of replacing the tub.
3) Refinish it with the Bathtub King process
With this in mind,
let's get on with the questions and answers.
What Can I Do To Get The Shine Back On My Tub?
If you have attempted to clean the tub with normal household cleaners
and the tub is still dull of dirty in appearance, there is probably nothing
you can do to restore the shine. The original finish (glaze) has become
worn and leaving the pores exposed to absorb the dirt and chemical stains.
Unfortunately, the more one scrubs, the worse the situation becomes. A
new finish on the tub is the answer.
How Long Will The Bathtub King Finish Last?
Since everything is relative, with normal care and proper cleaning, your
new Bathtub King finish will last for many years. Peeling (or flaking)
seems to be the concern of most. This condition is caused by trapping
gas under the glaze during the process and, if present, within 30 to 90
days after refinishing. Your 48 month guarantee affords you ample protection
against this unlikely possibility.
How Long Before I Can Use My Tub Again?
You may use your tub in three days. The new finish will continue to cure
(harden) for several months; however, this poses no problems or restrictions
to normal usage of the bathtub.
Just What Is The glaze It Real Porcelain?
No, it's not actually porcelain. It's synthetic, which when applied, hardens
to a beautiful high gloss porcelain like luster. The Bathtub King formula
is a unique process developed specifically for bathtubs and laboratory
tested to meet the highest standards of product performance and quality.
Our long list of satisfied customers proves that claim and guarantees
your complete satisfaction.
How Long Does It Take To Refinish My Tub?
Normally between 3 and 4 hours. All work is done in the tub area, and
there is no mess for you to clean up. Most Of the time is spent conditioning
the old tub. There may be some chemicals used, and some filling may be
required; however, all work is done in the same day.
Do You Change Any Of The Plumbing Fixtures?
No, plumbing problems (leaks, broken fixtures, etc.) Must be resolved
before we are scheduled.
In Redecorating My Bathroom, Should I Have Bathtub King first?
No, do all other work first, such as papering, painting, new lavatory,
toilet, etc. Call us last, since our guarantee does not cover paint spills,
dropped tools or other accidents which should damage the new finish on
Can't I Just Turn Off The Water To The Bathroom Instead Of Fixing The
Leaky Faucets Now?
Not really. First, tubs are awkward to handle and in the moving or connecting
of the tub, it's almost certain some damage to the new finish would occur.
Further the dirt, dust and foreign particles in the outside air pose a
problem to the fresh coating prior to the curing stage. You will be happier
if you connect the tub, then call us.
Can't You Do The Bottom Of My Tub?
NO, because in refinishing, the idea is to start and the process outside
the water area. This prevents the possibility of water seeping under the

What About My Shower Doors?
Booth doors must be removed prior to refinishing the tub. Call us if this
is a problem.
Are There Any Bad Odors From The Process?
If the bathroom has a window, all odors are exhausted through the window.
With just the bathroom exhaust fan (no window). Some slight odor may occur
during the process, but it disappears in a few hours.
Do You Refinish Lavatories, Tile, Also?

today, usually it's more practical to replace their items. With tile,
it's best to discuss the situation with us to determine the options.
What Special Cleaners Must I Use On My New Bathtub Finish?
Mild cleaners are excellent.
