How to resurface a bathtub?

If you have a bathtub that needs resurfacing, you’ll need to first remove the old finish and then replace it with a new one.

Here are some tips on how to do this:

1. Use a plunger to push all of the dirt, sand, and paint out of the way so you can get to the tub’s walls.
2. Start by using a hammer and nails to pry open the top of the tub. Don’t try to use tools like an electric drill or a Sawzall; these will likely damage the wall instead of helping you resurface it.
3. Pour equal parts of water and Krylon Painter Resurface Adhesive (available at most home improvement stores) into each corner of the spa-like tub and spread it evenly over the surface of the bathtub walls and flooring. Let it sit for 30 minutes before refinishing your bathroom!
4. Apply pressure to each area with a squeegee or cloth until everything is completely covered by adhesive. Wait another 10 minutes before returning your bathtub to its original condition.
This will allow any air bubbles that may have formed during resurfacing to dissipate and return your bathroom back to its former glory!

Do the Work

Once you have identified the problem and gathered all of the supplies needed to resurface a shower area, you will need to start by drilling into the concrete below the surface of the water.

Be sure to use a drill with a bit size that is appropriate for your task and drill slowly and carefully so as not to damage any surrounding walls or other equipment.

Once you have drilled through the surface of the water, use your trowel or brush to smooth out any rough edges on top of the water’s surface. Be sure not to overreach and damage nearby equipment or walls!

It can be very easy and have great results. If you follow the steps outlined in this guide, you will be able to resurface any of these products in a short amount of time.
