For over a decade, Custom Tub and Tile’s shower refinishing services in Maryland have been providing the highest quality restoration techniques to northeastern Maryland residents. We are grateful to be able to serve our new and existing customers with what we do best — restoring old showers to look and feel clean and brand new.

Although you could pay thousands of dollars to have your old shower completely replaced and suffer through weeks of drilling and grinding noises (not to mention the mess left over), we can upgrade your shower and tub in one day, so you never notice your bathroom is “out of order.”

Can I continue using a bathmat on a refinished surface?

Yes, you can put a bathmat down on resurfaced tub/shower floors, but only bathmats that do not have suction cups. You’ll find these bath mats at bath and bed shops that offer specialty items for bathrooms. An alternative to bathmats are bathtub strips that adhere to your shower floor’s surface to prevent slipping accidents. Be aware that once you place bathtub strips down on your shower or tub floor, they may be not removed without possibly damaging the resurfacing job.

Can you refinish my shower if it’s been refinished before?

Our shower refinishing services in Maryland are capable of applying professional resurfacing materials over previously refinished showers. Sometimes, it may be necessary to strip a shower down to its original surface to ensure the finished project is professionally and meticulously realized.

Can you refinish other bathroom fixtures?

Yes. We refinish sinks, countertops and tiles using materials dependent on the kind of substrate from which the particular fixture is made.

How long will my refinished shower last?

Your restored shower surface should last for many years as long as you follow our simple cleaning instructions, such as using only soft, nonabrasive sponges or clothes to clean your shower and never allowing drain opening solutions or shampoo bottles to sit on the refinished surface for extended periods. You should also avoid giving your dog a bath in your newly resurfaced shower because canine claws are sharp and could scratch the surface.

Why can’t I resurface my shower myself?

Our shower refinishing services in Maryland use industry-specific products that cannot be purchased at home improvement stores. In addition, the materials we use are the newest and most volatile organic compound (VOC) compliant products available to professional refinishers.

Many of our clients have called us in desperation after attempting a shower resurfacing project, only to discover the DIY shower refinishing kit contained cheap materials, vague directions and none of the items necessary to do the job properly. Save the tough, detailed jobs to the professionals! Call us today at (240) 668-4208 for a free quote or use our convenient email form to receive your free quote online.

Shower Types

Custom Tub & Tile can provide professional shower resurfacing no matter what type of shower you have. We are equally at home doing just professional shower pan resurfacing as we are resurfacing a shower with a glass door.

Here are some of the different types of showers we typically encounter:

1. Shower Pan Only

Having just a shower pan and a means for spraying water is the simplest type of shower you can have. It doesn’t take up very much space, and doesn’t cost very much, either. At the same time, if all you have is a shower pan, you probably want it to look its best.

2. Showers With Benches

A bench can be a great addition to your walk-in shower. Naturally, you will need to have a shower large enough to accommodate both the showering person and the bench, but if you have the room, you may wonder how you ever went without this accommodation. A bench means you don’t have to stand in the shower the whole time, and you have a convenient place to keep toiletries like soap and shampoo for easy reach.

3. Showers With Glass Doors

The traditional shower curtain can work for many, but a glass door really adds a touch of class to your shower and makes your whole bathroom feels more sophisticated. In addition, you don’t have to fight with or clean that curtain, and you don’t have to worry about water escaping the shower because you haven’t positioned the curtain correctly.

If you decide to have a shower with a glass door, there are actually a number of different options to choose from. You may have a glass block structure in which there is actually no door at all, just a gap for you to enter. Or you may have a traditional sliding glass door. A swing-open door is another popular possibility. Your glass door can be clear glass or textured glass as well. However, no matter the glass shower door you choose, you’ll definitely want your shower pan to shine, too.

4. Full Tiled Showers

A shower with tiles that extend past the shower itself is another way to add a distinctive decorative flair to your bathroom. You can use simple white tiles or decorative tiles that suit your particular style. These types of showers are more challenging to keep clean, but you may find that it’s worth it for the way they beautify your bathroom.

If your shower is drab and dreary and your shower pan is cracked, faded, covered in grime or any combination of these, it’s a great opportunity to fully renovate your shower. Putting in new tile, a new glass door, a bench or other great shower features along with resurfacing the shower pan can make it feel like you have a whole new bathroom.

What is Resurfacing?

Refinishing, Resurfacing, Reglazing, and Re-enameling are all the same. It is the process of restoring surfacing of a worn or damaged bathtub/shower pan/tile to a like-new condition.

Custom Tub and Tile does that by employing our 8-layer resurfacing system which allows them to give their clients 8 layers of protection on top of their original substrate. The resurfacing material is sprayed out of a gun, much like car paint, and applied by their skilled technicians who are trained in-house. The new surface only has a 24 hr cure time allowing their clients to remedy their surfaces in one day.

Is Reglazing Right for Me?

Custom Tub and Tile provides their clients with the ability to avoid the stress and expense of a complete remodel through resurfacing. Not only does their process extend the life of their clients’ bathrooms but it also saves their clients’ money while adding value to their homes.

How Long does it Last?

Custom Tub and Tile offers a 5 year warranty on their workmanship; however, if the surface is properly maintained it can last over 10 yrs. This resurfacing process employs the use of mechanical and chemical bonding giving clients the assurance of a surface that will survive the test of time.

“I would recommend Custom Tub & Tile to a friend for a couple of reasons. One, I thought the overall process was actually advertised accurately, which I seldom see.  Two, I really like the staff at Custom Tub & Tile, they were very friendly and very accurate.  And they delivered exactly what they said they were going to do on time and at a very good cost.

“I decided [Custom Tub & Tile] had the best materials, the best guarantee, and the best price…The technician who came knew exactly what he was doing…It’s surely been a year and a half or two years and the tub looks like the day he did it.  I have absolutely not a mark, not a scratch, and no evidence of any deterioration whatsoever .  My only regret is that I didn’t have it done in the other bathroom!”

“I could not have been more pleased.  What I liked about [the technician] was that from the moment I met him I had a sense of confidence about his capabilities.  He was neat, he was polite, he was obviously an expert at what he did…When I got home the place was immaculate and the tub was beautiful.”
Watch George's Story
“I had a fantastic experience and I think Custom Tub & Tile won my business because of the patience of [their office staff] who responded to probably a countless number of emails asking [them] all sorts of different questions about their process…[They] very patiently, clearly responded to every single one of my questions.  And that really impressed me.”
