Does anyone have any recommendations for a good bathtub refinishing company in the Sarasota-Bradenton area? I'm putting in a new kitchen right now and I don't feel like replacing a bathroom because of a worn out tub.

My boyfriend is a contractor who does kitchen and bath remodels. He recommends replacing the tub rather than having it refinished. He has also replaced tubs that have been refinished and didn't hold up. If you search online you will see that many places will only guarantee the finish for about 5 years and most don't even hold up that long. There are many products with different types of finishes. Just do your research before you invest. Compare the cost of replacing the tub and the resurfacing.

TamRe is right on. If you must have it refinished ask for names and numbers from jobs they did years ago, then call them and ask how they look. I see lots of them that are peeling and look bad. It is not cheap to replace a tub, but it is a much better result for years to come.

I should say that if it's a tub that isn't used the finish seems to look better longer.

I can tell you who not to use. Tub Genie by Bath Crest in Nokomis/Osprey: Tub Genie Bath Crest in Osprey | Tub Genie Bath Crest (941) 966-2284 & , Osprey, FL 34229 | <Home & Garden/Construction, Repair, & Improvement/Bathroom Remodeling> - Yahoo! US Local He refinished a bath tub for me at the cost of nearly $800. It lasted about a week and all washed down the drain. I called him many, many times and he either hung up on me or said he'd show up at the house and never did. Stay far away from him.
