A trained technician can prep and refinish the tile in most bathrooms in 4 – 6 hours.
Skokie, IL (PRWEB) April 09, 2014
During the past 6 years many homeowners have chosen to remodel instead of move. Bathrooms are a frequent place they start. In many cases, the tile work is in good shape, but possibly a dated color. Instead of removing and replacing tile, more and more people are turning to tile refinishing. They get a bathroom with a completely new look at a fraction of the cost and no headaches.
According to the 2014 Cost vs. Value report by the website remodeling.hw.net, bathroom remodels return 72.5% when a home is sold. That’s enough of an incentive for many homeowners. If they have tile that is in good shape, but looks like it is left over from the disco era, they have only two choices. The first is to tear out the tile and put in new. The other is to refinish.
Replacing tile gives a completely new look but at considerable expense. Not only is the tile itself expensive, but the labor required to remove the old and put in the new can be considerable. Costs can easily run into the thousands and the entire job can take up to a week.
Tile refinishing gives old tile a completely new look but it in most cases it only takes an afternoon. According to Mike Ripp, refinishing trainer and director of technical support for NAPCO, “A trained technician can prep and refinish the tile in most bathrooms in 4 – 6 hours.” Mike goes on, “In the end, the tile will look as good as new with a fresh new color. Homeowners really like that there is no demolition of the old tile involved.” The cost is a small fraction of cost of replacement.
