Fixture Type ⇔ SINKS
You can probably buy a new porcelain bathroom or kitchen sink for less than the cost of refinishing, so if your bathroom or kitchen sink is a "drop-in" sink that lifts out from the top and can easily be removed, we recommend replacing instead of refinishing.
If your bathroom sink is not a standard size, or it is an undermount sink that is set in tile, marble, or granite, we can refinish it so you don't have to tear up the countertop. Before we arrive to refinish, whatever hardware (handles, spout, and silver drain cover) is touching the sink, must be removed (this is not a service we offer), and can be re-installed a couple of days after refinishing.
Our standard color is white or off-white, but if you want a specific color and have the number and/or name of it, we can probably "special order" it from our manufacturer at an additional cost of $125. Please note that we do not refinish in dark colors because even in the semi-sterile environment we try to create, there are still minute dust particles that float through the air that can be seen on a dark surface.
Please also note that porcelain sinks typically rust from the back side inward, especially at the overflow holes. If you see rust on the inside of the sink in that area, it's actually coming from the steel or cast iron surface behind the sink. Although the rust can be repaired, we cannot guarantee it won't reappear at some later date.
You may be surprised to know that we strongly suggest replacing - not refinishing - a kitchen sink. Why? Because it is less expensive and easier to do if the sink is a “drop-in” style that is sitting on top of the countertop, and can be lifted up and out for replacement.
However, if your sink is under-mounted in granite or tile, the only alternative to tearing up the countertop when trying to replace it, is to have the sink refinished instead. Having said that, please note we only refinish alcove-type kitchen sinks (those butted up against a wall and not open to another room).
The reason we do not refinish kitchen sinks that are open to another room (the type usually set in an island overlooking another room) is because one of the most important things in refinishing is to protect everything not being refinished from overspray, which is nearly impossible to do when a kitchen sink is wide open to another room.
If yours is an alcove sink, it can be refinished, but all hardware (handles, spout, and silver drain cover) touching the sink must be removed before we arrive to refinish (this is not a service we offer), and can be re-installed a couple of days after refinishing.
Please note that our warranty is specifically related to the two things under our control: workmanship and product defects. We do not guarantee that rust, cracks, or holes won't reappear later in a sink if the underlying source of the damage (possibly a house shift, improper initial installation, water leak, or previous damage to the same area) has not been corrected.
In addition to that, porcelain sinks typically rust from the back side inward, especially at the overflow holes. If you see rust on the inside of the sink in that area, it's actually coming from the steel or cast iron surface behind the sink. Although the rust can be repaired, we cannot guarantee it won't reappear at some later date.
