Bathtub and tile refinishing is a specialized trade which requires skills that can only be developed over time. During the six years before the company was formed, the owner of Tub Renew learned the craft as a contractor for Surface Restoration of Louisville.
During that time we refinished tubs and tile in private residences as well as sub-contracting for NTS Development Company on the renovation of the Plainview Apartments. We do similar work for hotels, including the Courtyard Louisville Downtown, Hampton Inn Elizabethtown, Homewood Suites Louisville East, and others. We have also refinished tubs and tile for owners of other local rental properties, as well as for a number of home improvement specialists and contractors.
Tub Renew, LLC was formed in October, 2013 as a means of expanding into the residential market while continuing to collaborate with Surface Restoration on commercial projects.
Tub Renew is an independent, owner-operated Louisville business specializing in the repair and refinishing of ceramic and synthetic bathtubs and tile. Bathtub refinishing is also known as resurfacing or reglazing.
As the homeowner, you alone can decide whether your tub or tile should be refinished. An old tub can accumulate scratches and chips over time. Years of use, damage from leaky fixtures, cleaning with abrasive agents, and other factors can wear away the tub’s gloss, creating a porous surface that holds dirt and stains and makes the tub increasingly difficult to clean. The damage can be so severe that the porcelain is worn away completely, exposing the cast iron subsurface.
Tub Renew can repair minor chips and scratches and apply a high-gloss, catalyzed polyurethane coating that is easy to clean and backed by a full warranty. This process can also be used if you simply want to change the color of your tub and/or tile.
