Surface Type ⇔ TILE
There are typically two places in a home where you'll find tile installed - the kitchen and the bathroom. In the kitchen, tile can be found on countertops and backsplashes. In the bathroom, tile can be on the walls surrounding a bathtub, on a countertop, or on the bathroom walls.
We refinish countertops only in a MultiSpec finish, for these reasons:
By its very nature, a MultiSpec finish hides a multitude of flaws that solid finishes cannot.
A MultiSpec finish gives a beautiful contrast to an existing solid color finish on a bathtub, shower, or floor tile.
MultiSpec instantly updates a bathroom by removing undesirable colors like pink, green, or blue and gives the countertop the appearance of granite.
Conversely, refinishing in a solid color allows the minuscule particles that float through the air during the refinishing process to get permanently caught in the finish, which can and will be seen. Also, if you happen to chip the surface, it would be more noticeable on a solid color finish than it would be on a MultiSpec finish.
MultiSpec is a uniquely decorative coating consisting of individual flecks of various colors that are subtly blended to achieve the natural appearance of granite and stone.
The coating consists of encapsulated paint balls that randomly splatter on the surface as they shoot out of the spray gun during application. This is what gives MultiSpec its natural appearance. The finish is durable, and the stone look is truly custom.
A lot of the older homes near downtown Dallas and Fort Worth have colored tile, like pink, green, or blue surrounding the bathtub, as well as on the bathroom walls and countertops. We can refinish all of the tile in the bathroom except the floor tile (our coating isn't designed to be walked on).
Refinishing vs. Deep Cleaning: If you want to change the color of the tiles surrounding your bathtub, refinishing is what you want. However, if the tiles just look extremely dirty, especially around the grout lines, it doesn't necessarily mean that the tiles need to be refinished - it may only need a really deep clean!
First, check the walls themselves. If they still have integrity (meaning no loose tiles, no obvious water damage, evidenced by no "spongy" feel to the tiles when you press on them, and the grout is still firmly in place), we can deep clean them to make the entire surround look really clean again (this is not an ordinary type of clean that you can or would do). So ask us about this option. The cost to deep clean a standard 50sf surround (3 walls of tile that are 5 feet high) is $250.
We cannot refinish TILED shower floors. Why? Because it's the nature of a shower pan to hold moisture, and that moisture can work its way up through the grout lines and eventually cause the surface to bubble and peel. Your workaround is to replace the tiled shower floor if we are refinishing the wall tile in your shower.
If your shower floor is NOT tiled (in other words, it is made of fiberglass, acrylic, or cultured marble), we can refinish it. To get a bid, please send pictures of your shower floor, and include the measurements, which usually range from 3x3 to 3x5.
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 bathtub surround, shower, or countertop 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.
