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?
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.
