Refinishing is a great process if it is done with the right materials and techniques. Refinishing is not all the same, so be sure to ask a lot of questions. How long has the company been in business? Will they be using corrosive acids in your home? Will they ventilate the room, and do they offer a guarantee? Before making a decision, definitely ask for references.
Colorado Springs, CO (PRWEB) March 8, 2006
Homeowners with worn out, out-of-date, or chipped bathtubs and even old laminate countertops are no longer faced with removal and replacement as their only makeover option.
Replacing those fixtures can cost thousands. Hire a remodeling contractor and the costs escalate even higher. But there is a simpler, more cost-effective way to get the makeover of your dreams -- have the tub, tile and countertops refinished. New coatings, and non-acid bonding agents from companies like Miracle Method, have made refinishing an excellent alternative for homeowners who want to makeover their kitchen counters or bathroom fixtures.
Refinishing is how many of the world’s most recognized hotel chains, including Marriott, Hilton, Sheraton and Disney, refinish their bathtubs and you’d never know it. “Hotels have their bathtubs and tile surrounds refinished every few years as needed to keep them looking clean and fresh. And it’s so affordable, you can do it in your own home too,” says Chuck Pistor, president of Miracle Method, the nation’s largest surface restoration company with more than 100 locations nationwide.
Established 27 years ago, Miracle Method has refinished bathroom and kitchen surfaces for millions of homeowners, making porcelain, ceramic tile, fiberglass, acrylic, cultured marble and laminate surfaces look and feel like new again. “The keys to a durable surface-refinishing job are the detailed process of cleaning, preparation and bonding. What separates Miracle Method from other refinishers is not only our attention to detail, but also our proprietary non-acid, non-toxic bonding agent. It is what makes the new finish stick to the old surface like no other refinishing process,” says Pistor.
According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, the average cost for just removing and replacing a bathtub is $3000! Pistor says the average cost of a quality refinishing job is 20% - 25% of that, a savings of 70% or more!
Innovative new coatings and Miracle Method’s proprietary bonding agent, MM-4, have made refinished surfaces more durable than ever. Refinished tubs or ceramic tiles can easily last 10 to 15 years or more when the right process and bonding is used.
Refinishing also gives the homeowner the opportunity to change colors even if the fixture is not worn. Miracle Method can match nearly any color or create custom colors to make refinishing a great redecorating value, especially when it can take as little as 24 hours!
Stone-look and speckled finishes for countertops are the newest innovation in refinishing. “We can now offer homeowners hundreds of finishes and color combination for countertops. Burns, chips, cracks, knife marks disappear and dated laminates can be updated in just one day,” according to Pistor.
Pistor offers advise to anyone looking for a quality refinisher. “Refinishing is a great process if it is done with the right materials and techniques. Refinishing is not all the same, so be sure to ask a lot of questions. How long has the company been in business? Will they be using corrosive acids in your home? Will they ventilate the room, and do they offer a guarantee? Before making a decision, definitely ask for references.”
Miracle Method offers a five-year guarantee against peeling or failure of adhesion on refinished bathtubs. A refinished surface should last 10 to 15 years with the same care and maintenance recommended by new tub manufacturers.
