OUR PROCESS

Here is a quick tour of the refinishing process we use to create durable, like-new surface. Please call the office if you would like more specific information on our process.

Scrape, Sand and Acid Wash:
All soap scum, residue and adhesives need to be removed from the surface.

Remove Equipment, Faucets and Fixtures:
Pre-existing shower doors, towel racks, faucets, drains and other bathtub equipment is removed to prevent damage.

Tape-Off Surface:
Once the surface is prepped, the surrounding area is masked off to prevent any overspray or splattering to nearby areas.

Install Ventilation System:
A ventilation system is installed in the room to remove any odor during the coating process.

Alcohol Wash Tub:
An alcohol wash removes dust and particles which may have come into contact with the surface.

Priming the Tub:
Once prep work is complete an epoxy primer is applied to help the coating bond to the existing surface.

Coating:
We apply a topcoat containing 3-layers of acrylic urethane, leaving your surface with a bright, high-gloss finish.

Polish Fixtures:
Bathtub Made New goes the extra mile by polishing your fixtures to give your tub a finished look.

FAQ & COMPARE

Most refinishing jobs are completed in 4-6 hours and you can use the tub 6 – 8 hours after it has been coated.

When applied properly, your coating will last you more than 10 years.

Our exhaust system minimizes the odor, while any residual odor dissipates within a couple hours.

We have a Refinishing Care Sheet which details the best practices for refinished surfaces.

None. When we leave, your house will be cleaner then when we arrived.

We traditionally match your color to your existing pieces such as your sink or toilet color, however you do have the option of creating the custom color of your choice.

Yes. Our process is applied over your existing surface, and not considered a new installation, which is why tax is applied.

Definitely! Our team offers FREE On-Site Consultations, and in most cases, refinishing can be quoted right over the phone.

So give us a call, we would be happy to give you a price on your upcoming project!

Have The Modern Bathroom You Have Always Wanted!

Mike’s team impressed us again!  We had a tub refinished about 5 months ago and had a great experience with Bathtub Made New.  We ran into Mike again at the Fall Home Show and he mentioned he did floors now, so we signed up.  Mike’s team was once again very professional.  Thanks to their hard work, our hardwood floors look brand new, and we couldn’t be happier.  I would definitely recommend Bathtub Made New for any refinishing work

– Kelly P.  |  Rochester, NY 

Very professional and extremely high standards. Michael was recommended to me from a bank affiliate. I live in Buffalo and own a investment unit. He immediately said Buffalo is no problem! He did a very thorough job. He left everything very clean when he finished.. I am extremely satisfied and would recommend him to anyone!

– Gail S.  |  Buffalo, NY

Bathtub made new was able to accommodate my tight schedule, did a top quality job and did two baths in one day. Technicians were very professional and were very careful protecting the newly refinished flooring. I would recommend them and would use them again.

– Andrew W.  |  Webster, NY 

I had two bathtubs in a rental property refinished and this team did an excellent job. Michael and his team are professional, personable, knowledgeable, skilled, communicative, timely, and about everything else I could possibly want in a contractor. The quality of the work was excellent. I highly recommend “Bathtub Made New” for refinishing work and will use them in the future myself. I also recommend having older ceramic tubs refinished rather than replaced or overlaid with liners.

– Michael G. | Rochester, NY

Our 80-year old bathtub looks beautiful. We were so impressed that Michael and his assistant took the time to scrape all the old soap and stuff off with a razor blade before he applied the new. The nonskid surface is really cool – you hardly notice it, but it really works. When he was done he had new shiny pieces to replace the old drain cover and stopper lever (or whatever you call it). Michael is polite and professional.
