FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Is it safe?

Most definitely. We use only coatings that are Low VOC and are making it safe for both applicator and customer.

How durable is it?

Our refinishing coatings are incredibly durable and have been tried and tested worldwide for 30 years. Our coatings are designed for their intended use. However, just like a brand new surface, a refinished surface can be chipped or cracked if it is abused.

How long will it last?

A Bathroom or Kitchen resurfaced should easily last 10 to 15 years or longer with proper care and maintenance.

What do you actually do?

We apply a high performance, purpose designed, Acrylic Urethane coating system over the existing surfaces, without any tear out or replacement, giving the surface a like-new appearance.

Are there any odors from the process?

Yes there are odors, but we minimize by using an exhaust fan to quickly dissipate the odors.

Will it look painted?

Defiantly NOT. All coatings are applied by a high performance finishing gun. The finished surface will make the old surface look new again.

What surfaces can be refinished?

Bathtubs, Vanities, Showers, Ceramic Tiles, Bench-tops, Kitchen Cabinets, Metal, Plastic and Laminated Surfaces.

When doing a tile job, what happens to the grout?

Because the grout is porous it absorbs everything and eventually grows mould, discolours and looks dirty. After refinishing, the grout will be sealed by the new coating. It will still retain the look of grout but because it is sealed it will no longer hold dirt, grow mould, or discolour. Clean up is easy, since it is covered by the same coating, it will wipe clean with a mild liquid cleaner.

How do I clean my refinished surface?

As with all porcelain, laminated and enamel type surfaces, you should use only liquid cleaners that do not contain abrasives, bleach or chlorine.

What if the surface is damaged?

Small chips and cracks can usually be repaired during the preparation stage of the refinishing process. Often if it is just a single chip we can fill and refinish just the damaged area. With careful matching the repaired chip will be practically invisible.

How long will it take?

A bathtub or bench top can be completed in just 6-8 hours. A full bathroom can normally be completed in 3 to 4  days. A full kitchen job will take 4-5 days.

How long before I can use my refinished surface?

The refinished surface is normally ready for use 24 hours after the job has been completed.

How much will it cost?

Prices vary depending on the condition of the surface, but refinishing will always be a fraction of what replacement will cost.

Will the process cause me inconvenience?

Very little, in fact when compared to the inconvenience of tearing out plumbing, ripping up floors and demolishing walls the inconvenience is almost negligible.

Do you offer a guarantee?

We offer a Five year guarantee against peeling or failure of adhesion for bathtubs, vanity basins, wall tiles, cabinets and floor tiles. Two years for kitchen benchtops.

What colours are available?

We can create practically any custom colour of your choice.

Why should I choose your company over other refinishers?

  • We use a high quality product, which is the most popular and trusted product used in the USA, it has been purpose designed
    for their intended use .We also use a proprietary chemical bonding agent, which
    unfailingly "welds" the coating to the old surface.
  • Our fully cross linked coatings result in a hard tile like finish permanently fused
    to the old surface which actually resists stains and acid better than the original
    surface.
  • Our tradesmen are master tradesmen.
  • Perfection and satisfaction is our aim
  • WE CARE!
