Refinshing your tub - September 25th 2000



Question from: Dean
Comox, BC

Dear Shell,

My wife and I purchased our first home this year. The house is 18 years old and needs some work. We have upgraded the windows, ventilation & attic through the Power Smart program (excellent). Next on our list is the bathroom. The finish on our tub is worn out, and I have heard that there may be other alternatives to replacing the tub. Is this true? Any information and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Dean

Dear Dean,

Good, Better, Best: The best way to refinish your tub is to have a tub liner installed i.e.: Bath Fitter at 1-888-378-8655 or BC Tub Liners on the island (250)-744-3145. To do it yourself you could consider the product Klenks Epoxy Tub and Tile Paint. Follow the instructions applying two coats with a foam roller. Apply 1st coat across the tub and the 2nd coat lengthwise on the tub. Make sure you use the Klenks Prep Kit first.

Itís just that easy.
