Bathtub Chip Repair Is Part Art, Part Science And Without The Proper Chemistry Your Tub Chip Repair Won’t Last.
If your tub is in good shape, still has its gloss but suffered a blow which caused a chipped area in your bathtub. Then your bathtub maybe a good candidate for bathtub chip repair.
Few tub refinishing contractors have the color matching skill or understand how to use Silane adhesion promoter to keep the repair from washing away.
Keep reading so you’ll know what to look for in selecting a tub chip repair contractor to fix your bathtub chip repair.
There are several key points to having your Bathtub chip repair done 1 is aesthetics and 2 adhesion.
Whether You Need Porcelain Tub Chip Repair or Fiberglass Tub Chip Repair The Aesthetic Part Of Bathtub Chip Repair Involves:
Being able to fill the damaged area, then sanded and contoured perfectly to match the surrounding area.
Having an experienced color matcher is key to correctly tint the coatings to match your fixture being repaired. Even white requires a trained eye and tinting as there are many shades of white.
Using an air brush to apply the correct type of coating in what is called a blend. The bathtub chip repair is coated 4 to 5 times with each coat going just a little further out each time.
So a nickel sized tub chip repair will end up being around the size of a half dollar. This creates a transition that the human eye cannot see.
But there are two problems that must be dealt with. 1 is you’ll have a halo of dry coating around the outer perimeter of the tub chip repair and 2 you’ll have no adhesion under the blended area so after several cleanings the blend starts to show.
This Is Where The Science Comes To Play For A Lasting Bathtub Chip Repair.
The surrounding area is treated with our TubPotion #8 a very powerful clear adhesion promoter.
Then once the blend is performed the dry halo ring around the repair is made wet by a special blending agent sprayed over the dry ring.
If done correctly with a good color match, you’ll have 99. % repair done that will actually last.
The 3 key points here are: Color match and the use of TubPotion #8 as well as the blender.
The lighting in the bathroom can play a pivotal role. Sometimes when the bathtub chip repair is on the tub rail and the lighting is strong over the tub, you may see remnants of the repair by looking at angles.
I feel a successful bathtub chip repair means when you walk in the bathroom the damaged area doesn’t stand out. If you’re the type that’s going to scrutinized the area with a magnifying glass, you may want a full refinishing or install a new tub?
There are many fine men and women that repair bathtub chips in tubs & tile, and most are fine and decent people that work hard… AND THEY ARE FINE FOR WHAT THEY DO, but what I do is quite different… And it’s why the media seeks out my opinion.
Because… you see, while others are just tub painters, I offer you true CHIP REPAIR RESTORATION whether you need a complete job or a tub chip repair, should not to be confused with ‘just painting your tub or tile’. You might say “In a class of its own”.
The difference lies in the high performance of triple adhesion technology of the TubPotion process, that I created, that utilizes polyester vs polyurethane or epoxy coatings. That out delivers in quality and durability every-time.
Because, I believe in offering the highest level of quality and service to our clients. I know you want to be treated just like I would want to be.
I worry about folks looking for cheap deals by inexperienced contractors who can’t get work and keep lowering their prices. Or accidentally falling for a call center posing as a local company, both are a recipe for disaster.
You’ll benefit from my experience starting in 1983 restoring classic cars. My deep appreciation of utilizing the most advanced chemistry to date. And being a Virgo you’ll benefit, that I suffer the dreaded trait of being a perfectionist.
Are we perfect… hardly but we do go the extra mile by in-house certification of each and every technician. We love working for clients who believe in doing things right.
You’ll get unequaled-customer-service. The highest quality product and my personal guarantee you’ll love your bathtub refinishing or it’s FREE. A guarantee other bathtub chip repair contractors wouldn’t DARE to offer. Sincerely Paul Burns | Porcelain Tub Restorations

“Thanks for saving my butt, I dropped a wrench on my tub. Porcelain Tub Restorations did a beautiful tub chip repair & kept my wife from killing me!” John Arnold
Completed acrylic fiberglass bathtub chip repair.
A plumber using a torch to remove the old water handles due to being seized and caused the Jacuzzi gel coat to separate from the tub. The damaged gel-coat separated and lifted.
We had to remove the damaged and loose gel-coat till we found solid attachment.
We use a water proof fiberglass filler for 90% of the fill which adds structure strength.
Then apply a water proof polyester filler and sand to the Jacuzzi contours. Once the fill works is completed, we apply TubPotion #8 Silane adhesion promoter to the surrounding area. Next the aesthetics are addressed.
The color is match and applied using our blending technique. Once we have enough color applied the dry outer ring of the blend is melted in using our blending agent.
Completed Jacuzzi bathtub chip repair. Allowed to set up for 24 hours will be ready for use.
Hopefully the plumber learned a valuable lesson about torches and gel-coat tubs!
