The award winning refinishing that we at Miracle Method pride ourselves on providing to our customers can be applied to bathtubs and other units made from a variety of materials. Fiberglass, acrylic, and cultured marble are the primary materials that we can repair, but we also repair porcelain tubs and sinks, tile grout, hot tubs and Jacuzzis.
Fixtures can accidentally be damaged. This frequently occurs when an item is shipped or installed, or in some cases when a heavy or sharp object is dropped onto the fixture. While everything else may be in working order and in satisfactory condition, this limited damage needs to be repaired to prevent further damage as a result (cracking or chipping are good examples of this). Sometimes a crack can develop into a leak. The good news is that fixture repair is generally speedy and inexpensive.
A great deal of time and effort goes into Miracle Method’s bathtub repair. Chips and cracks must first be filed and sealed using a waterproof polyester resin. Once these areas have completely dried they are thoroughly sanded and filled. Then, using an artist’s air brush, an acrylic enamel coating is applied to the area, and the area is carefully blended into the surrounding surface, making it look just like new!
Chip and bathtub repair is something that takes years of practice. DIY repair projects often only cover up damaged areas and don’t extend the life of the unit in the same way that refinishing does. Chip and bathtub repair requires a discerning eye and years of professional experience.
The good news is that bathtub repair is MUCH less expensive than bathtub replacement (less expensive by thousands of dollars!) and adds anywhere from 15-20 years, or more to the tub.
