Bath resurfacing is process where licensed professionals will resurface a bath tub or basin to extend its life. Resurfacing provides a way to modernise a kitchen or bathroom without the expense or hassle of a full renovation. Resurfacing can involve re-enamelling the surfaces with a baked-on enamel product or applying a new polyurethane coating. Older resurfacing techniques include the use of motor vehicle enamel paints.

Re-enamelling is popular when dealing with existing enamel surfaces such as bath tubs and tiles. Enamelling generally takes around five hours to complete, with the bath or basin ready for use immediately. Enamelling is held to be better for long term colour retention than polyurethane coating. The life expectancy of a standard re-enamelled kitchen and bathroom surface is 10-15 years and is designed to withstand its intended use.

Polyurethane is a versatile product which provides resilience to cracking during expansion and contraction due to temperature fluctuations. It provides a surface which is harder than acrylic or enamel and provides excellent stain resistance and colour retention. Polyurethane is held to be a better option where the risk of cracking is a concern.
Resurfacing can be used on most features of a bathroom or kitchen including the bath, basin, shower base, wall tiles, and laminated surfaces.
