Refinish A Bathtub Tips

Refinishing a bathtub is the easiest and cheapest way to bring new life to your very dated (or very dirty) bathtub. Those of you who don’t have the time or patience to clean your tub often or want to restore your old, unique tub you don’t see nowadays will greatly benefit from a bathtub refinishing, also known as reglazing, project.

Fortunately, bathtub refinishing doesn’t cost more than $142 and can be completed for less if you choose to take it on as a DIY project. Nevertheless, by comparison to a new tub, refinishing can save thousands.

As most reglazing projects are done without pros, the costs tend to stay below the $100 mark. According to our cost guide, the average minimum cost of tile or bathtub reglazing is $17 and the maximum is $142. If you are eager to take this project on by yourself, there are plenty of refinishing kits at The Home Depot.

Nevertheless, if you hire a bathroom remodeling professional, expect the price to increase.

Like any DIY project, certain tools and materials are needed. While I am going to cover multiple ways to refinish a bathtub, some or all the materials below will help you transform your old grimy tub to the masterpiece it once was.
