Options for re-glazing a bath tub?

bathroom tub drain

Jillian emails:

I'm looking for local recommendations to have my bath tub re glazed. I've tried googling options, but only find bath fitters. Would love to opportunity to have folks submit recommendations on All Over Albany!

We had a similar question a few years back that focused on antique tubs, but it sounds like Jillian's situation is a little more straightforward. Re-glazing can help a tub look new(er) again, or switch out some 60s era tone for something more modern. Though we're curious how the cost compares to just getting a new tub.

So, got a suggestion for Jillian? Please share! And a sentence or two about why you're recommending an option or contractor can be a big help.

We used Perma Ceram (518 489-1110) for our tub, which was in pretty rough shape when we bought our house. Overall, they did a great job and we were able to use our bathroom again the following day,

I think the cost was around $500 and included a 5 year warranty.

Hi. I found this listing in Delmar:

We used Best Refinishing and he did a great job removing the do-it-yourself job done by the previous owner and putting a fresh coat of white on top of our blue bathtub. i wish we had done it when we first moved in!

Sherwin Williams sells epoxy paints that the homeowner can apply themselves. Best done in the summertime so that the windows can be opened and using a HEPA style respirator as the fumes are overpowering. Using one of thise "box" style fans are an asset as well.

We used Robert Clark from Bathwise in Scotia. Great guy, work was very reasonably priced and took one day, and our old cast iron tub looks amazing! Highly recommend. (518) 399-3403.
