Like caps for your teeth... It costs a lot of money to buy a new tub or to have it re-enameled when it has gone scratched or worn around the drain. Re-glazing is the New York answer. While we have heard that re-glazing is a toxic process (keep away from the fumes) and that it isn't as hard as real enamel (it can chip easily), it isn't a bad solution for the money. MGR
We were tipped off to Metro Refinishing over the weekend:
I used Metro.
They service the whole NYC metro area (I'm in brooklyn), and $250 is the all cash deal they offer -- I think its a little spendier (but not much) if you want to pay by check ... they also regrouted my tiles around the tub for an additional $150.
