If you are renovating your bathroom and you would like to update your shower, consider a shower resurfacing. If the shower works fine, but just looks a little old and worn out, resurfacing the shower could save massive amounts of money when compared to the cost of replacing a shower. Here are some tips to help you get started.

What Is Involved in Shower Resurfacing?

A shower resurfacing is just the simple application of a new coat to the tiled walls of the shower or the base so that the shower looks like new. Shower resurfacing can hide issues such as wear, stains, chips and scratches. You can even update the colour of your shower. Another suggestion would be to fill the tiled or concrete shower base with waterproof filler so that it is refinished.

The Process of Shower Resurfacing

Shower resurfacing is very similar to the other resurfacing projects that can be done on a bathroom. First, the project begins by repairing the shower base and tiling. This involves removing chips, cracks and other damage. Then any loose or discoloured grout is removed and replaced with new grout. Finally, the surface of the shower is thoroughly cleaned and prepared for a new coating. If you utilise fillers with your shower base, then these will be applied. The new coating will then be applied and allowed to set. 

When you are resurfacing your shower, keep in mind that that bathroom must be 100 percent dry in order to guarantee that the coating sets properly. By working with a professional bathroom renovation service, you will be advised on how long to wait.

When you are trying to select a bathroom contractor you should find out which products are used and how long the process will take. Drying times can vary depending on which products are used.
