What is tile resurfacing?
Tile refinishing requires specialized equipment, bonding agents, clear finishes, primers and top coats. There are key differences between painting tile and refinishing tile that involve surface gloss, durability of refinished tiles and how long refinished surfaces retain their “newness”. Painting tiles with spray enamel paint or epoxy won’t look nearly as spectacular as a professional tile refinishing job. In fact, tile resurfacing is the only viable method of reproducing the original appearance of your tiles. That beautifully clean glaze seen in new ceramic tiles is accomplished by baking tiles in high-temperature kilns. But since removing your tiles to put them back into a kiln is not possible refinishing is great alternative for renewing the luster on your dull tiles. Remodeling companies advertising their ability to reglaze tiles are not representing themselves as honestly as they should be.
