FIBERGLASS SHOWERS & TUB ENCLOSURES
The first step in this process is to check for damage to the unit. Unfortunately, fiberglass unit are not always installed with proper support underneath. We clean the unit thoroughly and sand down the fiberglass. Needed repairs are then made. We mask off everything in the room. Next, we clean the unit again, this time with a solvent to remove all the dust from sanding. We then apply four coats of undercoat and follow that with six coats of topcoat. Your newly resurfaced shower can be used in 24 hours.
REPAIRS & FOAM INJECTIONS
When we have to repair most fiberglass units it is because there is no support underneath the unit. So, we have to take care of that problem before we can actually proceed with the repairs. First, we drill a series of holes in the bottom of the unit. We fill them with a polyurethane expanding foam (such as what they make surfboards out of). The foam is lightweight, but gets almost as hard as concrete. Then, we fiberglass the holes along with any cracks and holes that need to be repaired. Next, we blend in a color to match the unit as closely as possible. We can also put a nonskid mat on the bottom for more support. The unit may be used in 24 hours.
Ceramic tiles are first cleaned thoroughly, then acid etched for adhesion purposes. Then we fill any grout lines that need it. If the tiles need to be completely re-grouted there is an additional fee. Then we masked off the entire area and begin the spraying process. Three coats of epoxy undercoat and six coats of topcoat are applied which completes the process. The big advantage to resurfacing your ceramic tile is that grout lines are covered, but still visible, eliminating mildew problems. You can change the color of your tile for the fraction of the cost of replacing them. The drying time for tiles is 24 hours.
If your tiles need to be completely re-grouted, the process will take two days to complete due to the drying time of the grout.
