Northern Virginia’s finest residential and commercial repair and restoration service provider, Ascension Services, Inc., provides five reasons to choose a professional when it comes to bathtub refinishing.

Professionally refinished bath tubs last longer

Ascension Services, Inc. offers professional bathtub refinishing, counter top and other refinishing services for residential and commercial properties in Northern VA, MD and the D.C. Metro area.

As the summer ends and the holidays begin, lots of people are contemplating the idea of remodeling their bathroom. However, many despise the idea of a total demolition in their house and want to keep a low budget, so they are set on refinishing their bathtub themselves.

Before anyone moves in that direction, Ascension Services would like to offer a few tips that show why having a professional do any refinishing is better than doing it yourself.

  • Look and Feel: professional refinishing leaves bathtubs looking sleek, well-polished and brand new. Do-it-yourself projects often end up looking dull and have rough spots and drippings.
  • Durability: when done correctly by a professional, bathtub refinishings typically last for five years or more. Many do-it-yourself projects peel easily and require annual maintenance.
  • Time: when considering time taken for research, purchasing and lack of professional knowledge, bathtub refinishings can take up to two days. A professionally done job takes less than four hours.
  • Commercial Grade Material: a professional has all of the materials and tools necessary for a refinishing and knows how to use them. While do-it-yourselfers can obtain commercial-grade materials, they often don’t have the proper tools and knowledge to do a professional quality job.
  • Caulking: caulking takes practice to be done correctly and, if done wrong, the caulking will begin to come off. Professionals can ensure proper application and long life when it comes to caulking.

The bottom line is that though it may seem less expensive to do it yourself it can sometimes be more expensive when considering all of the additional things that need to be purchased and the possibility of having to redo the job. Ascension Services guarantees all its work and will gladly come and help clients out if they find themselves with a project gone wrong.
