How to Refinish a Bathtub

How to Refinish a Bathtub


1. Clean Tub

Remove hardware and the old caulk from the bathtub. Clean the tub thoroughly with a degreaser.



2. Repair Chips

Mix a two-part epoxy filler until it forms a paste consistency (Images 1 and 2). Next, apply epoxy with a putty knife to fill any chips in the tub’s surface (Image 3). Scrape excess epoxy with the putty knife to reduce sanding time later (Image 4).



3. Smooth Rough Spots

Once the epoxy hardens, smooth any rough spots with a utility knife, orbital sander or sandpaper.


4. Scrub Tub

Use steel wool or sandpaper to scrub the tub three times, vacuuming between scrubbings.



5. Protect Area

Cover any areas that need protection using tape, paper and a drop cloth or plastic sheeting..



6. Apply Paint

For professional results, spray paint finish onto bathtub using an air compressor. You can also use a paintbrush to do the job. Wait 15-20 minutes before applying another coat.
