Our Process

Our fiberglass tub repair process is as detailed as they come. Our goal is to provide you with a new looking bathtub that will last for years and even decades. We give you the most value for your money and the most enjoyment from this experience.


Assessment and Cleaning:

The first step is to assess the condition of the fiberglass bathtub. Any existing damage, such as chips, cracks, or stains, is identified. The bathtub is thoroughly cleaned to remove soap scum, mineral deposits, and any other contaminants. This step ensures proper adhesion of the new tub repair coatings.

Repairing Damages:

Any chips, cracks, or other damage to the fiberglass bathtub surface are repaired at this point. This may involve filling in the damaged areas with a bonding agent or filler to create a smooth surface. Minor chip repairs are typically covered by the cost of refinishing. If the rest of the tub is in great condition, we may be able to stop here. If the rest of the tub is ugly and needs improvement, proceed to step 3.

Surface Prep:

The surface of the fiberglass bathtub is etched or sanded to create a slightly rough texture. This helps the new coatings adhere securely to the existing surface. Without this process the tub will peel in days, weeks or months and will need to be refinished again.

Masking and Protecting:

Areas around the bathtub, such as fixtures, walls, and floors, are carefully masked off and protected to prevent overspray or damage during the refinishing process. The more time and attention giving to this step, the better the tub refinishing job will look and will result in less cleanup after.

Ventilation and Safety Precautions:

Proper ventilation is set up to ensure the fumes from the refinishing materials are safely extracted. Safety equipment, such as masks and protective clothing, will be worn by your professional Renew-It refinishing technician.

Application of Primer:

A bonding primer is applied to the prepared surface. The primer enhances adhesion and promotes a strong bond between the existing surface and the new coatings. This also helps the finished product to look smooth and shiny.

Application of Top Coatings:

Multiple layers of specialized coatings are applied to the bathtub surface. These coatings often include layers of color and a clear topcoat. We only use the best fiberglass tub repair products to ensure a great looking and long lasting end product.

Final Inspection and Touch-ups:

Once the fiberglass bathtub is finished, a final inspection is conducted. Any imperfections or areas that may require touch-up are addressed. This step ensures a smooth and even finish.

Unmasking and Cleanup:

The protective masking is carefully removed from the surrounding areas, and any cleanup is performed to ensure the bathroom is left in a clean and tidy condition. We will invite you into the room to inspect the final product. At this point we will explain how to take care of your newly refinished tub, explain your warranty, handle payment details, and ask you to leave us a review online to help others make a wise choice when choosing their tub refinishing company in Portland, OR.

Curing Time:

After the coatings are applied, the fiberglass needs time to cure. The curing time can vary but is typically around 24-48 hours. During this period, the bathtub should not be used to ensure the coatings properly set.

In general, most bathtubs made of materials like porcelain, cast iron, fiberglass, and acrylic can be repaired. However, severely damaged tubs or those with structural issues may not be suitable for repair. Ask your technician for more details.

To maintain a repaired tub, avoid using abrasive cleaners or tools. Clean the surface regularly with non-abrasive, mild cleaners, like dish detergent and avoid dropping heavy or sharp objects onto the tub like soap and shampoo bottles. Do not allow water to sit on the repaired surface for days. Ask your technician for more details on cleaning your newly repaired tub.

Depending on the process you choose, your surface could be ready to use within a few hours. We recommend waiting up to 12 hours to ensure that the surface is completely cured and ready for use though.

Using your newly repaired tub or shower too soon could void your warranty and lead to costly repairs. It pays to wait.

Some repair products may have a noticeable odor during application, but proper ventilation can minimize this. We ventilate the odors using a fan and exhaust system to prevent any odors from staying in your home. Some light odors will be present for a day or so as the surface dries and cures.
