Updating bathroom tile
This is your only chance to get those areas spotless, however, your goal isn't to get the tiles themselves totally clean.Get the big chunks, but expect a bit of grout haze on the tiles themselves.You shouldn't use the room for at least 24 hours, so use some sort of Mission Impossible style apparatus to hang from the ceiling and clean the grout haze off the tile.Seriously, I don't understand why companies put confusing instructions like this on the packaging. (We trusted this tutorial implicitly, mostly because someone involved in Road to Avonlea wouldn't dare lead us astray.) When we started out on this project, I had serious reservations about how good Peel-and-Stick tile could look.I only use one brand and type of coating for jobs and it is "Made in the USA".
It started around 10 pm on a Saturday with us tearing up the old vinyl floor. (My father-in-law, so I won't say anything disparaging...) I slashed with a utility knife, scraped with a scraper and sanded with a palm sander. Moving the toilet helped with the wallpaper and painting behind the tank and it made tiling very easy around the toilet base.
*Add when a shower door frame is present (recommend you remove doors and frame for best results).*Add for no-slip added into floor of bathtub refinish.*Add for heavy soap and/or debris removal.*When a tub needs repair(s) there is an additional charge based on material and labor.*When a cast iron tub has excessive surface pitting there is an additional charge for filler.*Oversize garden/oval/jacuzzi tubs larger than 30" x 60" quoted on a per tub basis.*When a tub needs repair(s) there is an additional charge based on material and labor.*Add for heavy soap and/or debris removal.*Add if your bathtub has had a prior refinishing.*When a cast iron tub has excessive surface pitting there is an additional charge for filler.**I do not do the outside of the clawfoot tubs.
The outside does not requirea higher cost specialized coating as does the inside.
We cannot possibly go over in detail every issue and different cost of every type of refinishing job during a phone conversation if you are not well informed.
I provide upfront prices on the most common types of refinishing to treat everyone equal, no vague low to high to see if you can pay more, no phony percentage off gimmicks to make it seem as if you are getting a better deal.
