What is Tub Reglazing and How Does it Work?
Our tub reglazing services are for restoring worn, impossible to clean, chipped, or just plain dated bathtubs to look and feel new. Our tub reglazing starts with a thorough cleaning and sanding of the surface using our specially formulated two-step cleaners to remove soap scum, mineral deposits, and body oils. Next, we repair and seal all cracks, chips, and stains. We then apply a proprietary bonding agent to ensure a solid bond between the old surface and the new finish. Finally, we use a fine finish to apply a durable coating.
The end result of our tub reglazing is a sparkling finish that looks wet, has high light refraction, and a deep gloss. Our specialists achieve this finish with an extra buff and polish process, which leaves the surface silky smooth and with a feel of original porcelain. A New Look Resurfacing’s professional services and our licensed, insured, and bonded specialists can save you thousands of dollars on the costs associated with a full bathtub replacement.
How is Tub Reglazing With A New Look Resurfacing Different From Competitors?
The best part about our tub reglazing services is that you can enjoy a brand new-looking tub at a fraction of the cost of remodeling, renovation, or replacement. According to Home Guide, tub reglazing is 75 percent cheaper than replacement. However, if you choose a competing company that relies on patchwork procedures and low-quality materials, issues may still arise. Here are some of the most common tub reglazing problems you should be aware of and avoid:
- Rough texture
- Heavy objects: When heavy objects are dropped in a bathtub, small divots and dents begin to form. These divots eventually lead to cracks.
- Harsh cleaners: Highly abrasive cleaners, such as bleach, can weaken the surface of your tub. These harsh cleaners cause the finish and gloss of your tub to erode, leaving openings for moisture to seep into the material and cause cracks.
- Lack of support: Lack of support underneath your tub can be a contributor to the downfall of your bathtub, particularly when it comes to fiberglass surfaces. Fiberglass is very flexible and easily bends under weight.
- Sticky feel
Improper coating in the tub’s finish can cause bubbles on the surface. This occurs when air gets trapped in between individual layers of coating. This bubbling is usually due to inadequate curing of the coatings between layers, or the old finish was not stripped before reglazing. Our team has over 22 years of experience reglazing tubs, and we use only the highest quality products and tested, proven methods to get the job done right the first time.
Your reglazed tub will fade if the refinish coating is mixed incorrectly and applied too thinly, or an incorrect mixture was used. Tub reglazing is not a DIY project, so don’t hire a company that treats it like one. Choose A New Look Resurfacing for your tub reglazing needs.
A reglazed bathtub should feel smooth to the touch. But if your reglazed tub has a texture that feels rough, pointy, or like sandpaper, and you didn’t have a non-slip surface applied, this indicates that the surface wasn’t sanded or cleaned properly before the coating was applied. It could also be that a competitor didn’t properly ventilate the site and let dust and debris get trapped in the finish.
There are three main causes of cracks forming on or in your bathtub:
A newly glazed tub that feels sticky to the touch can happen when the coating did not cure properly. If you encounter this, do not use the tub yet as it may need to be reglazed. Call us at (314) 368-6198 or contact us online right away. We’ll make sure the job is completed the right way, even if a competitor started it.

Our tub reglazing process will improve the look and functionality of your entire bathroom. We strive to make sure our customers are well informed, so that we’re on the same page prior to beginning work. The following are some questions we typically hear:
Why is my reglazed tub peeling?

Can you reglaze my tub a different color?
Absolutely. The world – or at least our color palette – is your oyster, so whether you want an avocado green bathtub or more of a glossy white, A New Look Resurfacing is the place for you.
Is the tub reglazing process harmful to me, my family, or my pets?
