Shower pan refinishing/repair is performed by pour-on application method on a pre-prepared surface. Pouring acrylic around the perimeter of the product by the specialist provides it with a uniform coating and the creation of a new layer that completely repeats the features of the shape of the shower base.
A shower cabin is the best option for saving space in small bathrooms. There are different types of shower cabins with different sizes, configurations, and various functions, but they all have a shower pan in common.
Being the most important and most actively used element of the cabin, the pallet is most susceptible to surface wear and damage. A shower cabin is an expensive product, especially if it has a lot of additional modern functions. Replacing it with a new one will not be so easy and very expensive.
If the shower base has been damaged or lost its original appearance, it can be reglazed to its integrity, uniformity of coating, and shine.
This is possible thanks to liquid acrylic, a material that helps restore and improve the external and operational characteristics of plumbing. Thanks to restoration with this composition tubs, sinks and shower pans can get a second life.
This material is versatile and allows you to fix the damage of various degrees of depth: from small scratches and loss of gloss to serious chipping and even through holes.
The nature and severity of the damage also depends on the specifics of the work, but the main advantage of acrylic is the ability to use it without dismantling the product.
The shower pan can remain in its place during the restoration, which prevents inconveniences for the residents and additional costs.
The cost of refinishing the shower pan using pour-on application method starts from $299. Additional services may also be required, such as abrasive cleaning of the tub, removing the old coating, replacing the siphon, removing chips, color tinting, and self-leveling corner.
Composition has strong adhesion, which allows it to bond well and holds securely on any prepared surface. Shower bases made of acrylic, cast iron or artificial stone can be restored by pour-on application method.
Without peeling or cracking, the resurfaced coating can serve for up to 15 years. This is the most durable material, which for the entire time of use looks as if the surface had been recently replaced.
Shower pans, especially the modern ones, are usually products with a complex relief, which significantly complicates the reglazing process when it comes to other methods.
This does not apply to acrylic, which, due to its special texture and consistency, can perfectly envelop the surface with any relief.
Composition is elastic and fluid, but at the same time dense which fills and covers all the irregularities and flaws in the surface of the product, leaving only a perfectly smooth, shiny surface of uniform white color.
Liquid acrylic is a high-quality material and provided that it is used correctly, does not form inflows, air bubbles, and drips, and makes the reglazed shower base indistinguishable in appearance from a new product.
Reglazing and resurfacing a shower's surface to give it a new look is known as shower refinishing. Sanitizing, repairing any damage, and reglazing the shower's surface with fresh material are typically included.
Reglazing a shower is a more affordable and practical option than replacing it, which can be expensive and time consuming. It gives exceptional results with minimum hassle.
In addition, if you want to change the color of your shower, refinishing is an excellent option.
The liquid acrylic material we use is ArmoGlaze, which is safe for you, your children, and the environment, with near zero VOC status. It solidifies and is ready to use in 24 hours. The material and process are odorless and non-toxic during application and after.
This technology has been used since 2011 with outstanding result.
The entire process of preparing and reglazing the shower is quick and convenient, normally taking around 3 hours (depending on the complexity of the work, more complex cases may take up to 4 hours).
The time required for complete drying and hardening of the material is about 24 hours. During the work and subsequent hardening time, there is no smell. Since there is no demolition or extensive renovation, there is much less mess and disruption to your daily routine. Our experienced, professional technicians take the utmost care to leave the work area clean and neat when they finish.
The professionally reglazed finish should last for 7 to 15 years with proper maintenance. It’s essential to follow the manufacturer’s required maintenance instructions in order to extend the lifespan of the finish.
Our pour-on method lasts several times longer than spray-on techniques and resists peeling.
Avoid using abrasive cleansers or scrubbers on your reglazed shower, and stay away from hanging bulky objects from the shower's walls.
In order to avoid water spots or stains developing on the finish, you should also make an effort to keep the shower as dry as possible after usage.
