Bathrooms are the room in the house that get grungy looking and outdated the fastest. This is why they are one of the most frequently remodeled rooms in a house. One of the first and biggest things you see in a bathroom is the bathtub. However, replacing the entire bathtub is an expensive and difficult task and oftentimes goes unfinished. So many people have wondered if there is a better option and lucky for us there is.
Refinishing your bathtub is the number one way to completely change the look of it or just make it look brand new. It takes a lot less effort, time, and money to refinish a bathtub versus replacing it. One of the best things is that you can do it yourself, so you don’t need to pay for labor as well as supplies.
However easy this job might be, there are also steps that have to be taken to ensure that it is done properly. If not you will end up needing to redo it and it will become a bigger expense than you originally bargained for. That is why, if you plan to do it on your own, you should follow the appropriate steps.
The first thing you should remember to do is prep the tub and the surrounding area by cleaning and covering anything that you don’t want covered in the refinishing product. Secondly, you’ll need to sand the bathtub to remove the old finish and create a surface for the new finish to adhere to. You will also have to repair any cracks or rust. You will then be ready to finish it. After that is done you will need to let it cure for the amount of time on the specific product you use. Which is usually at least twenty-four hours.
By carefully following all of these steps, you will have an amazing bathtub to show for it. This is an awesome DIY project and definitely something to put on your to do list especially if your bathroom needs a makeover!
