Tub and tile re-glazing?

bathroom tile closeupJen (@albanyjen) asks via Twitter:

Perhaps @alloveralbany can help me find someone who reglazes tubs & tiles in the Cap District? or some DIY guidance?

We're guessing that companies/skilled tradespeople who do tile might also do some re-glazing (basically) -- or, at least, be able to offer a good referral.

Got a suggestion for Jen? Please share!


I had Tub Doctor's do my bathtub about 5 years ago. It was lime green, and is now white. Cost about $400 bucks if I remember correctly. One of the biggest bang for the buck improvements I've done.

We really like Brian McAvoy at Collar City Tile. He is great. He did our kitchen floor. Not sure if they do re-glazing but I would think they would.

Not sure if this is what you are looking for but we are currently having Dave from D.A. Lajeunesse Building & Remodeling Inc. work on our bathroom. He says he does "everything". We have been pleased with his service so far (he's ripping out our tile where it needs to come out and regrouting what can be saved) He is environmentally conscious and generally all around good guy. It's been a family business for decades.

Thanks guys! This is all very helpful!

Can they fill that much retail and office space in downtown Albany? I think they'll be able to fill the residential, but that much retail space requires the same kind of national chain stores that are in Latham or Wolf Road. 300,000 square feet would be more than 7 Marshall's stores. Unless downtown is in the running for the Costco (unlikely) or the Cabella's (still pretty unlikely but maybe less so), what stores would open in downtown Albany?
