Thanks Joesph, I took your advice and am getting my bathtub re-finished
for $395. Probably about a fraction of the cost of getting a new one.
They will do the whole thing. First they apply a bonding agent, then
the spray-on follwed by finish and buff. The guy said he can do the
whole job in about 5-6 hours, working straight. The other estimate I
got was for $500, and he said he'd come back the next day to buff.
Wonder whether there;s any difference...
Thanks for the advice!
On the subject, I have scheduled the refinishing and chip repair job
with a MiracleMethod (www.miraclemethod.com) technician. Anyone have
any experiences with this kind of repai?
The key thing which differentiates them from the other guys is how they
prep the tub for
the painting. They use a MM-4 bonding agent, which goes on top of the
porcelain (after some
prep and cleaning) instead of using an acid etch method which damages
the tub and maybe
your plumbing (apart from being env, unfriendly and plain dangerous).
The rest of the process
of applying multiple coats and hardening/buffing is similar.
Thanks for any feedback.
