Frequently asked questions about ceramic tile refinishing.

Sink and Ceramic Tile Refinishing Color Change Before and After Images

What type of tile can be refinished?

We only refinish ceramic and porcelain tile. See our tile refinishing gallery for examples of our work.

Can I refinish ceramic tile myself?

Short answer is yes, you can refinish your tile yourself. But only if you’re ready to take on a big project that involves a steep learning curve, a high risk of ruining an expensive to replace fixture, and working directly with dangerous caustic chemicals.

Also consider that since DIY tile refinishing kits are inferior to the products we use, then even the best technician will get questionable results with substandard materials. It is a far cheaper and an easier option to enjoy a professional porcelain and ceramic tile refinishing service. That way it’s done right in one day or less and you get a warranty on the materials and labor.

How long does ceramic tile refinishing last?

With proper care, your new surface finish will last 10-15 years or longer. The glazing compound we use on ceramic tile is extremely hard and durable. However, as you might expect, improper care, higher-use areas, and excessive moisture may experience a reduction in lifespan.

How do you clean a refinished tile surface?

For regular cleaning, avoid abrasive cleaners and harsh scrubbing. Use a mild non-abrasive liquid cleaner and water. Gently wipe the surface with a soft cloth or sponge. If the cleaning tool is safe for Teflon surfaces then it’s okay for your refinished tile surface too. Keep your refinished tile surface clean by wiping up spills promptly and regularly removing any dirt or debris. This will help prevent stains and keep the surface looking its best.

Can you reglaze tile a different color?

Sherwin Williams Custom Colors for bathtub refinishing

If you’re ready for a tile color change you don’t have to replace them when ceramic tile refinishing is a better option. We have lots of popular colors to choose from. In fact, and color you want is available on the Sherwin Williams color chart.

The new surface coating is sprayed using an HVLP (High Pressure Low Volume) spray system. This type of system enables us to provide a smooth finish that looks like new. When doing tile walls, we are actually spraying over the grout as well as the tile. It’s only a few millimeters thick, so the grooves won’t be filled in. This means both grout and tile will end up one uniform color AND more importantly, the porous grout will not we permanently sealed making it much more difficult for mold and mildew to invade.

Typically, it takes less than a day to complete our process and then you need to let it cure for 10 hours for our solid colors.

Transform Your Ceramic Tile to Like New

Maybe you’ve heard of it by another name: Reglazing bathroom tiles is also called resurfacing, refinishing, or even painting (though the last isn’t entirely accurate), depending on whom you’re talking to. But the process is the same.

For residential services, we come to your home After a deep cleaning and preparation of the surfaces, our technicians spray and bond a thin opaque coat of glossy enamel on the tile surfaces. You can keep the same color or change it. You can also select a new texture to a faux stone finish. We can do the sink, tub, shower and countertops, wall tiles, and backsplash. This process completely transforms the room from old, dull and drab to new, modern, and fabulous in a matter of hours.
