Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the bathtub finishing process take?
It usually takes 4 to 5 hours to finish the tub and can be used within 24 hours.

Finishing is on average 80-90% cheaper than the replacement process with an average cost per tub of $ 300.
Is there a guarantee for the services rendered?
JJ Refinishing offers a 3 year warranty on all work and any other adhesion defects of the acrylic finish.
Are there any odors that are emitted during the process?
Like all finishing processes, scents are present, but JJ Refinish has the heavy-duty, professional-grade fans needed to circulate all the air from the bathroom to the outdoors.
How long will the tub last?
The durability of a refurbished bathtub by JJ Refinishing is the same as that of a new bathtub. If properly maintained, it should last you for many years to come.
How to clean the renovated bathtub?
Much like a new tub, any abrasive cleanser will dull the finish. A refurbished tub contains a special product to repel dirt and grime. Thus, the cleaning process is even easier. You should use mild, non-abrasive cleansers to maintain its shine.
Will my bathtub look painted?
No no no. The tub is unpainted, it is finished with a special high-tech acrylic. The pores of the tub are opened before finishing. As a result, the acrylic finish is absorbed into the tub, giving it a shine and a like new feel.
What colors does JJ Refinishing offer?
There are over 200 colors to choose from for the bathtub and the tiles and over 13 for the counter tops.
What is the difference between a tub liner and a finish?
A tub liner can cost over $ 2,000 and is rectangular in nature which takes away the original look of the tub, essentially covering the tub and the tiles. With the finishing process, the caulk is removed and the tub and tiles are brought back to life at minimal cost making them look new and uncoated.
What will happen with the grout of my tiles?
The loose grout is removed and if new grout is needed it is then replaced. The refinishing process covers then covers over the grout to ensure a moist free atmosphere for years to come.
