1. Removing the Caulk: We remove all caulking from around the bathtub.
2. Stripping (Previously Refinished Bathtubs): This step applies to bathtubs that have been previously refinished and the old paint is peeling or cracking. It has to be chemically removed.
3. Cleaning the Surface: Using undiluted bathtub and tile cleaner, the surface is scrubbed with an abrasive pad to clean soap scum, greases and oils.
4. Drying the Surface: The area to be refinished is dried with clean towels, turbine air and scanned with a heat gun to ensure there isn’t standing or hiding water.
5. Surface Repairs: Any cracks and holes are filled and sanded down to the surface.
6. Preparing the Surface to be Refinished: The area being refinished is masked around with masking tape and masking paper. Spigot is covered to prevent water dripping, drain is covered, and all other items in the immediate area is removed or covered with drop cloths to prevent overspray dust.
7. Spraying the Surface: The area is first sprayed with a bonding agent called Crosslink Adhesive that serves as a bond between the area being refinished and the glaze that’s covering the surface. During this process, the no-slip application is applied if agreed upon per customer’s request for no additional fee.
