Can You Refinish a Fiberglass Tub?

Fiberglass bathtubs and showers are one of the most common fixtures in today’s bathrooms. The material, made up of fiber-reinforced plastic, is lightweight, but durable, making it a practical choice for homeowners. Something that gets daily use needs to be strong enough to last for many years.

But like most things, the coating on fiberglass tubs and shower surrounds can be damaged and worn down over time. Dirt, grime, and hard water stains can get trapped inside the pores, and the surface can crack or chip away. Additionally, your tub’s finish may wear away if you clean your tub with abrasive cleaners and use heavy scrubbing to try and remove the grime and stains.

Fortunately, you can refinish your fiberglass tub or shower surround to restore them to like-new condition without the cost and hassle of getting a new tub.

How to Refinish a Fiberglass Tub

You could apply a new coat of paint or purchase a bathtub refinishing kit and try your hand at fiberglass shower repair, but here’s the thing: there are many steps involved in refinishing a bathtub and a small mistake in application can lead to bubbles, cracks, and discoloration, making the tub or shower surround look worse than it did before the refinishing process.

The best way to refinish a fiberglass bathtub is to leave it to the professionals. Our experts have been doing this for years and know exactly how to go about refinishing your tub to bring it back to life, and at an affordable price.

We take time to clean and prepare your tub, which includes dissolving any contaminants that might be on the surface, then sanding the surface well to make it smooth. If your fiberglass tub or shower has any cracks, chips, or holes in it, we will first determine if they are a result of lack of support beneath the tub. If so, then we will repair the support damage before filling in the holes and cracks. After preparing, cleaning, and repairing the tub, we will apply several coats of acrylic polyurethane, making sure that each coat is applied evenly and allowed to dry before spraying another coat.

Finally, we will clean the tub again to remove and dust particles and wipe the bathtub down with a surface prep solution to ensure your resurfaced fiberglass tub or shower lasts for many more years.
