Why Refinish?


Refinishing is the smart choice to deal with an outdated or damaged tub, counter top, sink or wall tile. Chips, rust, cracks, stains and dull areas completely go away. Fixtures with outdated colors can be changed and look new again. You choose the color to fit your new decor. Most customers can’t tell the difference between a refinished tub and a new one.

Faced with worn or dated fixtures, you have the choice of refinishing or replacement. Think again about replacement. Replacement, especially bathtubs, includes expensive tradesmen and a week of hassles. Frequently demolition is required. That means noisy, dusty work that causes damage to your floors, walls and plumbing. Not to mention the cost savings.

Thinking about refinishing yourself? We strongly suggest you don’t. Bathtub refinishing or reglazing is not a do-it-yourself project; it involves the use of strong chemicals and materials that are beyond the skill and ability for most homeowners and untrained users. DIY kits are limited in their strength, durability and way they are applied. Most often DIY refinishing jobs end up being redone by a professional with the additional cost of stripping the peeling finish. If these kits actually worked, there’d be no need for professional refinishers.

Our Epoxy Casting Material and Service at A New Beginning Refinishing, LLC. & The TubcuT®

Casting is the latest and greatest in bathroom refurbishment!

This unique synthetic high gloss porcelain resin is poured over the tub or shower surface which not only provides excellent adhesion for this permanent coating but is about five times thicker than traditional spray refinishing. A slip resistant additive is able to be installed before the casting material fully cures making it a permanent part of the tub surface.

Casting coating is 5X thicker than traditionally sprayed on coatings. It’s so thick it will never peel, chip, or flake like traditionally resurfaced substrates. It has a 24 hour cure time which is the same as most sprayed on coatings.

This casting material is categorized as 100% solids and contains no solvents.There is nothing else on the market quite like it. This permanent synthetic porcelain expertly applied by our trained technicians has no odor, and a VOC of near 0! Since the coating is poured on there are no
airborne particles, no dust, no solvents, and nothing to breathe in. This makes the product compliant with most green initiatives! We do not cut corners when it comes to workmanship, customer service, and especially safety!

The casting material service comes with a 5 year warranty. This strong durable material is known for lasting over 20 years.
