Bathtub Refinishing Latest Post

Dear Dr. Tubs,

We are thinking of reglazing our bathroom tub, but I recently heard that I wouldn’t be able to use my bath mat if it’s reglazed. Is this true?

Dear Marianna,

Thanks for writing to us. We get asked quite often if a bath mat can be used with a reglazed tub and the answer is it depends on the type of mat.

It is understandable that tubs will be slippery when they are used and many people will find a reglazed tub to be comparable or even a little more slippery. The reason for this is that our tubs are sprayed with special paints only to be used on bathtubs, tiles and sinks. Most tubs that we do are sprayed with an average of 6 coats – 3 primer coats and 3 topcoats.

Bathtub Maintenance Bathtub Reglazing Latest Post

Dear Dr. Tubs,

About 3 months ago, my husband and I purchased our first home. We are moving in in a few weeks time. In the master bedroom en-suite there is a beautiful looking tub that we just found out was reglazed before we bought the house. Is there anything I need to know about taking care of a reglazed tub? I read recently that I can’t use certain products when cleaning it, is this true?
