Tubs & Tile
Why Refinish Rather Than Replace?
Many homeowners wonder why they should consider refinishing rather than simply replacing an old tub. We can suggest several thousand reasons – or dollars actually. Refinishing saves considerable money over a costly tub and/or shower replacement, especially when adding in plumbing, wall repair, and demolition costs. We offer experienced refinishing of many surfaces, including (but not limited to) porcelain, cast iron, steel, ceramic, fiberglass, and acrylic.
Benefits of a refinished tub:
- Refinished tubs are easier to clean and maintain
- Resurfaced tubs often brighten and refresh your bathroom
- Refinished tubs add value to your home

Refinishing. Resurfacing. Reglazing. Those are all words that mean the same thing. But with the experience and expert craftsmanship at Suncoast Refinishing, they take on added meaning: A beautiful, like-new bathtub that will add value to your home and years of use to your family!
Reasons why it’s time to refinish:
- Dated or ugly color
