For an average sized countertop it is usually refinished in 2 days.

How much does it cost to refinish a bathtub?

An average cost to refinish a bathtub ranges from $375-$475.  Keep in mind a thorough, quality refinished bathtub requires all six steps (clean, etch, bond, prime, coat, polish) for the best bond and most durable system. 

Paying a contractor to replace a bathtub is over $3000 and will be time consuming and messy.  Also bathtub features haven’t changed in over a 100 years, so you are not getting an upgrade when you replace.

How do you get these results with our restoration process?

Refinish First’s innovative 6 step tub refinishing process allows for guaranteed restoration of porcelain, fiberglass, acrylic, and cultured marble bathtubs. First, the tub is thoroughly cleaned using specially formulated two-step cleaners to remove soap scum, mineral deposits, and body oils. Next all cracks and chips are repaired. Next we etch the surface to give it a rough profile for better adhesion.  Next a best in the industry bonding agent is applied to ensure a solid bond between the old surface and the new finish. Next, we apply a durable epoxy base layer for added adhesion and strength.  To finish, a trained professional uses a fine layered spray process to apply a hi-tech, durable acrylic coating. This is not bathtub paint in appearance or durability.  We use high quality architectural coatings.



Can my Fiberglass, Acrylic or Plastic bathtub, showers, floors (pans), and inserts be repaired and refinished?

Yes, we can repair cracks, chips, burns or rough and unclean able bathtubs, showers and shower floors (pans), and apply a new beautiful finish, usually in a day and a half.

Can I just paint my bathtub, countertop, fiberglass shower, or tile myself?

The initial cost of using a DIY kit will be less, but in a short time it will cost you much more than paying to have it professionally done.  DIY kits usually fail within 3 months to a year, and then you are left with a bathtub, countertop, or shower that needs to be stripped at an additional cost, and refinished properly.

Can I change the color of my bathtub, countertop, shower, or tile?

Yes, We provide three standard colors for a porcelain or ceramic look (white,Kohler Bisque, and Almond) for bathtubs, fiberglass acrylic tub shower inserts, and tile.  Also Stone Accents (look of granite) for kitchen and bathroom vanity countertops, tub surrounds, and fiberglass acrylic tub shower inserts.  We can also provide custom colors.

How should I choose a bathtub refinishing company?

Bathtub repair refinishing and countertop repair refinishing companies are not all alike.  An established independent company will give you the best results and value.

Franchised refinishers are usually not a good option because there is a middle man; which raises prices and necessitates cutting corners.  Also, a franchisee is a business renter with ending contracts, not an owner.  

Also, an un-established refinisher working out of their home, is not a good option because of the high turnover rate in refinishing industry and companies come and go quickly, leaving poor quality work in their wake.


“Everything went extremely well. I have hired other contractors and there has been an issue of quality and following through on what was promised. I was beyond happy when they showed up as promised and always so courteous and professional. They kept me informed through the entire process and did exceptional work. They went the extra mile and I was so impressed. I felt my only option was to have my shower completely torn out and re-done and now I have this wonderful result at a fraction of the cost. I am so pleased and would encourage anyone contemplating a bath and/or shower replacement to contact this company.”
