Heiden Tub Refinishing uses Durokote out of Texas, one of the best urethane refinishing suppliers in the country. The new urethanes that are available nowadays are incredible. They are meant to be immersed in water, they are incredibly durable and they will not yellow over time. Epoxies which were first used back in the 50’s would yellow over time. Unfortunately that is all that was available. Nowadays you will usually find only fly by night companies using epoxies because they are cheap. Acrylic finishes were then introduced which were a big improvement. But today most reputable tub refinishers are using only the new urethanes. Heiden Tub Refinishing uses only the best urethane finishes available today. Having said all that, you as a potential customer need to know that although using the best product available will give you a beautiful looking bathtub your bathtub will peel or bubble up if not prepped properly. It takes approximately 3 hours to refinish a bathtub. 2 1/2 of those 3 hours are nothing but prep work. Which means it only takes about 30 minutes to apply the finish. Which tells you how important the prep work is! If not prepped properly it will peel or bubble up within 6 months to a year. This is why it is very important to find a bathtub refinishing company like Heiden Tub Refinishing that is family owned. The owners at Heiden Tub personally sprays all the work. Other companies hire employees. Why is that bad? Because if an employee has somewhere to go that day or it’s a nice day outside and they want to get done quickly they will finish the 2 1/2 hours of prep work in 45 minutes spray your tub and be gone. The employee does not care as they still get paid. Your tub may or may not look good when they are done. But one thing is for sure…...that tub will not last more than a year if critical steps in the prepping process are skipped in order to get the job done quicker.
As the owner of Heiden Tub Refinishing, every bathtub I do is a work of art and the center piece of your bathroom. I have a reputation for being very meticulous in what I do and it shows not only in the finished product but also in the longevity that you will get from your beautiful new tub. On the average your bathtub will last 12 to 15 years before you need to get it refinished again. So dont be fooled by catchy phrases such as Special Formula - 7 step process - Bonding Agents - Hi Tech - Stat of the Art. In the end if you want a beautiful, professionally refinished product you will need to find out not only what they are using but also who is doing it. At Heiden Tub Refinishing we use only the best products done by the person who cares the most…..
