    What is the difference between BathWorks and the other store bought kits?

    BATHWORKS is a commercial refinishing system created by professionals as well as used by professionals. Its extremely thick, durable, glossy coating is unlike ANY store bought products. Most store bought products are thin epoxy based paints, and the finish tends to peel easily and yellow.  BATHWORKS is a 2 part resin, and the resulting finish is a porcelain-like, hard, glossy surface that won't easily, chip, peel, crack, or yellow.

    How Much Does the Standard Kit Refinish?

    A single kit has enough material to refinish a standard bathtub (60" x 32") with two coats. We recommend two kits if you are refinishing a tub & tile (the bathtub and three walls around it) or a one piece tub/shower unit. If your looking to refinish the tub/tile and extra tile in the bathroom we recommend three kits.

    How many kits do I need to refinish a Tub/Shower Combination Unit?

    For any tub/tile or tub/shower unit we recommend two kits to be on the safe side. Complete the walls with first kit, followed by bathtub with second kit.

    Can I refinish the base of a shower?

    Absolutely!  Clean base, sand (sandpaper included in kit) and apply Bath-Works DIY kit w/non skid application. In one hour it will look brand new and last for many years.

    Can I change the color of my tub, sink, or tile with Bathworks?

    Absolutely!  You can easily change the color of a bathtub, sink, shower, or tile with the Bathworks Kit.  Depending on how much of a contrast there is in color (ie. changing from purple to white) you will likely need to apply multiple coats.  Our standard kits are designed to provide for two coats of a standard size bathtub (60" x 32"). Depending on how different the colors are, you may need to purchase two kits.

    I am interested in refinishing my old bathtub, it is porus and very hard to clean. I also have hard water with lots of calcuim I would like to know all the products I would need to do this?

    We recommend our DIY Kit with Non-slip Additive. The non-slip application will help with porous bottom. Drying the bathtub at the drain after each use will help with the calcium, hard water.
