Bathtub Refinishing Latest Post Reasons To Reglaze

Happy Halloween from Dr. Tubs Reglazing

After checking out ideas on Pinterest on how to make my bathroom scary for tonight https://www.pinterest.com/amanda86x/halloween-blood-bathroom/ I thought about the day after… On November 1st, when you clean up the “crime scene” bathroom look, mopping up the fake blood and throwing out the body parts, murder-scene-tubyou should give us a call and get your tub refinished. Dr. Tubs Reglazing can remove all the “finger prints, DNA and all signs of your murder scene” so it looks fabulous. If you don’t call Dr. Tubs to refinish your bathtub, you may have zombies running after you!

All jokes aside, we don’t know the condition of your bathroom beforehand. Maybe it was in need of a refinishing rather than just a cleaning. Call Dr. Tubs Reglazing and let us bring your bathtub back to life. Ha Ha Ha.

Happy Halloween from all of us at Dr. Tubs halloween-dr-tubs

Bathtub Refinishing Bathtub Reglazing Latest Post

You say biscuit, I say cookie. Picking a colour isn’t always easy.

Recently, our office received a call from a fellow who wanted his tub refinished in biscuit. “Biscuit is a cookie, not a colour” I told him. The fellow said his sink is biscuit, his new toilet is biscuit and he just refinished his bathtub using a home painting product for bathtubs; and that’s in biscuit as well. However, all three pieces are slightly different shades of ‘biscuit’.

If you are asking yourself, what the heck is biscuit, it’s an off-white colour close to bone. The problem is that tub reglazing paints come in the following colours: Gloss White, American Standard White, Kohler White, Bone, Almond and Clear. There is no professional paint made for bathtubs, sinks or tiles in Biscuit. To make matters worse, all three of his bathroom pieces are slightly different shades of biscuit even though he was told they were all biscuit. The reason for this is that one is an American Standard, one is a Toto and one is a DIY tub paint. I started thinking about drinking a Pepsi with my cookie…no, make it a Coke and a chocolate chip cookie.

I decided to do some research and I found that Toto’s Sedona Beige #12 is a close match to Kohler’s Biscuit or American Standard’s Linen. My head hurts. When did colours become food and fabric? Can’t there just be a standard? By the way, if you are interested, Toto Cotton = Kohler White. Toto Colonial White = American Standard White. Toto Sedona Beige = American Standard Linen / Kohler Biscuit. Toto Bone = American Standard Bone / Kohler Almond. Coke ≠ Pepsi. Chocolate chip cookie ≠ oatmeal raisin cookie.

There are bathtub refinishing companies out there that will mix paints to match colours and we aren’t one of them as the paints they mix are for different items and shouldn’t be mixed. Their bathtubs tend to peel shortly after. Based on this, I told the customer we wouldn’t be able to reglaze his tub as he likely won’t be happy with 4 different shades of the “same” colour. You see, you may say cookie and he may say biscuit but at the end of it all, it’s not the same for paint.

By the way, here is Toto’s colour Sedona Beige #12 which is supposed to be equivalent to Kohler’s Biscuit or American Standard’s Linen.

Happy National Bathtub Day from all of us at Dr. Tubs Reglazing…50% off Deal

Ok. I know what you are thinking. Today isn’t National Bathtub Day. It’s in less than a month on Friday, October 7th, 2016 and we are getting pumped for it. It is shocking that most people don’t know about this awesome day. Well, lets face it, how many of us take baths on a regular basis? How many of us take baths at all? Most of us jump in the shower to get in and out. We don’t have time in our busy schedules for a relaxing bath. Between checking emails, watching our favourite tv shows, eating dinner as a family (if you still do that) and whatever else you do in the evenings, most people don’t take baths anymore. For the people who shower in the mornings before they run off to work, well we know why you are showing in the morning and not taking a bath.

Did you know that December 5th, 2016 is Bathtub Party Day and February 9th, 2017 is next tub day, it’s called National Read in the Bathtub Day. So mark your calendars and take a bath on October 7th, 2016, December 5th, 2016 and finally February 9th, 2017.

These days came into effect as a fun way to get people to remember they could take baths in a more relaxing or fun way, not just in a quick in-and-out way (when they didn’t have showers). Obviously when showers came the norm, the bathtub holidays were forgotten. Well, at Dr. Tubs Reglazing, we say Hell No We Won’t Go! Save the Tubs! Save the Tubs!
