Is Bathtub Reglazing Enough or Do You Need to install a Liner?

Bathroom remodeling can involve a range of costs and mini-projects; and even when you are simply looking for a quick refresh – how do you decide between bathtub reglazing or installing an acrylic liner?

What is Reglazing?

Bathtub reglazing, (also known as tub resurfacing or bathtub refinishing) is the art of spraying special paints onto a bathtub made specifically for bathtubs. In essence, we are re-enameling it to make it look and feel brand new.

The first step in reglazing is to thoroughly clean the surface of the tub to remove oil, soap, and mineral deposits. This process ensures that the new finish is properly bonded with the tub and that any small particles don’t create imperfections.

After the initial cleaning, your tub undergoes a cosmetic retouching to fix any small imperfections.

Following that, a bonding agent is applied. It’s important to note that the quality of the bonding agent will determine the longevity of the reglazing or resurfacing of the tub. 

The last step is the application of a new tub finish.

What is an Acrylic Liner?

Custom-made Bathtub Liners manufactured in Canada from the strongest acrylic around. They are high impact, high resistant and are made to fit right over the existing tub and tile. They come in white and the wall-surround can come in a mock-ceramic tile.

An acrylic liner is a moulding that fits over the existing bathtub and is made to fit exactly over the tub like a glove. It is placed over your existing tub and then securely glued down and sealed. The important thing about your liner is that it should be made of a highly durable acrylic, stay away from fibreglass.
