One of the places that people spend so much time in is the bathroom. It’s a place where people can truly be themselves and not be bothered by other people. Itâs a place where people can literally let their hair down and relax. A beautiful bathtub can help achieve this but when your bathtub is old, rusty, and moldy, the time you will spend there wouldnât be quite as relaxing.
To make your old bathtub look new again, you can hire a tub resurfacing professional to help you. But with so many professionals advertising that they are the best, how do you choose? Their advertisements could be misleading and you might end up with an even uglier bathtub to begin with. Even something as simple as a bathtub refinishing job could turn into a nightmare if done by people who donât know what they are doing. So how do you find the right person for the job?
1. Look for references – Contractors will come in and show you that this is what they did. Theyâll have pictures of the bathrooms that they have refinished and youâll never know if they did it or not. So ask them for references. Ask them if you can contact the people that they did work for so that youâll know that they did a great job. Also, look online for reviews from other clients that they have not provided. You want a contractor thatâs consistent with all other clients not just the ones who like them.
2. Check how long theyâve been in the business – Sometimes experience really does trump fresh new blood. Contractors with more experience will most likely do a better job than new contractors. Look for professionals who have had a lot of experience specifically in bathroom fixtures. They will know what to look out for, how to properly finish your tub and how to make sure that it stays beautiful.
3. Ask for warranty – you want to make sure that the finish on the tub won’t chip of peel after just one wash. Ask your contractor how long their warranty is. Most of them will say one year, or up to 2 years maximum. Ask what the warranty covers and if these things are written in your agreement with the professional contractor
Hiring a professional to refinish your tub ensures that it will look as good as the day that you bought it. It’s pricier than doing it yourself but at least all the worries and hard work will rest on the contractor not on you.
