  • How long will a refinished bathtub and ceramic tile surround last?
  • A Hi Tech refinished bathtub or tile wall can easily last 10 to 15 years with proper care and maintenance.

  • How durable are refinished bathtubs?
  • Hi Tech Refinisihing Inc. uses only the most technologically advanced coating available. These finishes are designed to stand up to daily use and do not require special care. However, like a newly manufactured bathtub, a refinished surface can be chipped or scratched if it is abused.

  • Do refinished tubs look painted?
  • Definitely not! In fact, most people will have a difficult time telling any difference between a new bathtub and a Hi Tech refinished tub.

  • How long does it take to refinish a bathtub?
  • A standard sized bathtub, in reasonable condition, takes only 2-3 hours to refinish. The tub will typically be ready to use within 24 hours.

  • How does refinishing compare to replacement costs?
  • Refinishing costs vary across the country but refinishing will almost always be a fraction of the total cost of replacing a bathtub or ceramic tile surround. Replacing a bathtub and surround can easily cost $2000 or more when you consider the cost of removal, plumbing, setting new tile, etc. Refinishing can often save you up to 75% compared to the cost of replacement!

  • Does refinishing have an odor?
  • Yes, because the top coats we use contain solvents, which are necessary to make the finish hard and durable. However, with proper ventilation the smells will tipically subside after 4-5 hours.

  • Is white the only color available?
  • No. Hi Tech can match an existing color or create almost any custom color of your choosing. Can Hi Tech fix chips, scratches and cracks? Small chips and cracks can be repaired during the preparation stage of the refinishing process.

  • Is refinishing just for bathtubs?
  • Hi Tech can refinish a variety of surfaces including fiberglass shower stalls, kitchen Formica counter tops and other laminates, ceramic tile, cultured marble vanity tops, and acrylic tubs.

  • How does refinishing work on Kitchen countertops?
  • Our countertop refinishing works extremely well on all types of formica countertops, tile vanities, and even cultured marble counters. The finish is very durable and easy to clean. A variety of colors and textures are available including our revolutionary stone finishes which give the appearance of granite countertops, but at significantly lower costs.

  • Does Hi Tech use acid etching?
  • No! Unlike other refinishers, Hi Tech does not use corrosive or harmful acids in its refinishing process

  • Is there a warranty?
  • Yes, we offer a 2 year warranty on bathtubs. If the bathtub chips or peels within the first two years we will refinish the tub at no charge.

  • Does a refinished surface take special care?
  • You should only use mild soap and water or anything out of spray bottle that does not contain bleach to clean a refinished surface. No comet, ajax, softscrub, green pads, etc. should be used to clean a refinished surface.
