I'm not sure about a do-it-yourself fix but when we bought this house
the bathtub was already showing wear and tear. We found an ad where a
man came in and refinished it - similar to paint but it was a thicker
product. Anyway, it cost less than $100 (back about 1995) and it
added at least five years to the life of the tub. The tub was acrylic
finish - not the heavy kind they used to make. If you can't find a do
it yourself kit you might consider the refinishing job.
Maybe not DIY. I've had numerous kitchen and bath sinks refinished by
pros. My kitchen sink recently. Looks like new.
Once had a 1910 claw-foot tub refinished, inside and out - even the
ball and talon feet. Sold it later at break even.
OP didn't mention the tub material.
Yes....I have used the company called 'Bathfitter" that removed my bath
tub and I had a stand up shower installed with glass sliding doors... I also
had 'Bathfitter" guys put in a tub surround in a different bathroom... Was
it worth it and was it a good job? It was an excellent installation and I
really like it....as far as being "worth it" Bathfitter has a lifetime
warranty on their install and product... so after doing 3 bathroom renos in
about 15 years...yes....the lifetime warranty is worth it... They won't sell
to someone doing their own install though and for good reason... Jim
