My porcelain sink has rust, can I still refinish?

If your sink has rust, it can still be refinished, and we will do are best to remove all rust to refinish the surface in a manner that will make it last, but we do not offer any warranty, express or implied, on such a refinish.  If rust does return, we are not responsible for repair, refinishing or removal of the rust.

 

I’m going to repaint my bathroom, should I do it before or after refinishing my bathtub?

Due to the nature of paint taking many days to fully dry, it is best if you paint after tub refinishing. During refinishing, we must apply masking tape around the edges of the tub, and new paint may detach or peel if it is not fully dry. One Day Bathtub Refinishing is not responsible for any paint chipping or peeling that may result.

 

My sink is leaking, can I still refinish?

A leaking bathtub or sink will prevent the refinishing work from curing properly, and the new finish will fail at the point of constant water contact. Its best to have any leaks repaired prior to refinishing by a plumber.
