Preparation is key to remodeling. Take the time to set a budget, compare prices, and explore a variety of remodel options.

Hiring a Professional vs DIY Countertop Refinishing

DIY is super trendy for 2016. Just spend about 5 minutes on Pinterest and you will see everything from DIY cabinet refinishing to installing pallet walls. Often, doing it yourself is a great option – you can not only save money, but you can do it exactly the way you want, rather than relying on someone else to bring your vision to fruition. YouTube and Pinterest are both great resources for step-by-step instructions and videos on DIY projects. There are some projects that are however, not well suited for DIY and refinishing a bathtub or countertop is one of them.

We know, because Miracle Method is often called in the midst of DIY refinishing jobs to save the day. Here are just a few examples of what can go wrong when you attempt to refinish yourself:

Potential problems with DIY refinishing

  • DIY products are simply not of the same quality or durability of the industrial grade products we use.
  • DIY options have no bond between coatings and the original surface, so peeling is a common problem.
  • DIY kits are rolled on and highly susceptible to streaking.
  • DIY coatings dry quickly but they don’t cure quickly, so the smallest items can cause dents.
  • DIY topcoats are often not waterproof and may result in a cloudy appearance in addition to being “soft” and scratched easily.
  • Safety – refinishing chemicals are strong and require use of a respirator – not just a dust mask, most do-it-yourselfers are not equipped with proper safety equipment, increasing their risk of injury or harm.

Professional, Beautiful & Durable Refinishing

Do yourself a huge favor and save yourself a massive headache by using a professional when it comes to refinishing. DIY is just not fun when it wastes time and money on something that won’t last or doesn’t work. Miracle Method’s refinishes can last 15 years and longer with proper care – which is why we have the best warranty in the industry.

Preparing Your Bathroom for Holiday Guests without the Stress

It’s mid-November and the holidays are just around the corner. It can be a very stressful time of the year with lots of shopping and cooking and preparing the home for guests, not to mention having the family together. The to-do lists can be overwhelming and it’s easy to overdo it and expect everything to be perfect.

The reality is, even when the holidays are approaching, regular life is still happening. The kids need help with homework. Dinner needs to be prepared. The laundry needs to be done. The dog needs to go to the groomer. The furnace is acting up, and to top it all off, your son dropped the handheld shower nozzle and chipped the side of the tub.

Take a deep breath, a chip can easily be repaired. You don’t have to call a contractor to rip out the tub and replace it. Miracle Method can help. Not only can Miracle Method refinish the entire tub, but we repair chips and cracks all the time. You want your guest bath to look nice for your guests and Miracle Method provides a great alternative to costly and time consuming replacement.

So, you’ve got the chip fixed, what are some other things you can do to make your bathroom look and feel great for guests?

  • A deep clean – clean the floor and baseboards and clean around all of the fixtures. Put on some music and get the family involved in helping.
  • Purchase a new bath rug at an online or local discount retailer. There are sales everywhere during the holidays. Don’t pay full price!
  • Pick up a scented candle and some decorative soaps to display on the counter
  • Place some travel-sized toiletries in a basket such as deodorant, toothpaste, mouthwash, a spare toothbrush, shampoo, conditioner and hand lotion. If your guests have forgotten something in your luggage, no need to worry – you’ve already got it on hand.
  • Wash the shower curtain and liner to freshen them up.
  • Clear out some storage space for guests to store their personal things.
  • Make sure there is extra toilet paper under the sink.

If your guests feel comfortable and at home, they will enjoy their stay more and you won’t have to be catering to them as much. Preparing for their stay ahead of time means less running around for you and more time for conversation and fun.
