What’s involved with the jacuzzi bathtub resurfacing process?
To start, we protect and cover the existing jets and fixtures. Then we apply a chemical etching substance that removes the gloss from the tub and makes the surface of the tub more porous. Next, we coat the unfinished surface with a high-gloss, polymer topcoat that returns your old tub’s gleam and luster. But before we start resurfacing your jacuzzi bathtub, we will protect your bathroom floor and other components by laying a plastic tarp on the floor and over surrounding walls. We take extra care to protect everything not being resurfaced from the etching solution.
The resurfacing process involves primer and paint materials that are applied using an industry-specific sprayer. In order to achieve a professional appearance, the primer and paint must be sprayed as evenly as possible over the entire surface of your jacuzzi bathtub. It is important to keep the spraying in motion continuously while making sure the right amount of paint is placed on your bathtub. We do not recommend that you try to resurface your family’s jacuzzi tub using over-the-counter products and instructions from amateur websites.

Tips for Jacuzzi Resurfacing
When planning to resurface a Jacuzzi, keep the following tips in mind:
- Always ask the technician for an estimate so you know exactly how much you can expect the job to cost beforehand.
- You should make sure the resurfacing technician removes or unscrews the escutcheon plates around the whirlpool jets to make sure the coating seals behind them for a cleaner, more consistent look.
- Never try resurfacing your Jacuzzi yourself for a number of reasons. One, while you can buy the chemicals you need for Jacuzzi tub resurfacing at a hardware store, they are quite toxic and can be extremely dangerous to the unskilled individual attempting resurfacing. Even resurfacing professionals have fallen victim to resurfacing chemicals at times. Two, without the necessary resurfacing skills, you may make the problem much worse. If this happens, you may actually need to replace the Jacuzzi tub after all. Even if you don’t, you may turn a fairly reasonable job into a very expensive one.
