Additional Information

During refinishing masking tape is used to protect your adjacent surfaces. Occasionally paint will adhere to our tape and come off during the unmasking process, especially if primer was not used. We do our best to minimize this; however, touch-up painting of surrounding edges should be prepared for.

All newly refinished surfaces will have some dust settle on the surface after the final coat has been applied. Do not be alarmed and do not try to remove any specks. Normal use and wiping surface with a wet cloth or sponge for the first five days will remove these minor blemishes.

Maintain faucets. A steady drip will erode any finish, even porcelain and steel. Any damage caused by lack of maintaining faucets will not be covered by our warranty.

Do not use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads. Over time this will sand down the surface. Your new finish is easily cleaned with a towel or sponge. **see recommended cleaner list

Do not use industrial solvents on the refinished surface, including drain cleaners, paint thinner, lacquer thinner, gasoline, or Lemon oil. **see recommended cleaner list

Do not use rubber or suction cup mats on bottom of tub.
