Question

Tub Refinishing kit


I bought a 2 part epoxy type tub refinishing kit at HD. I am going to refinish a white tub with white. I did a paint, new vanity, new lights, medicne cabnit remodel the Wife liked. She isn't happy with the state of the finish on the tub and we do not have the $$$ or knowlege (at this time) to install a new one. I bought the kit but haven't used it yet due to the extended cure time involved (1 week) without the ability to use the tub/shower.
Has anyone ever used this type of refinishing product and if so how was the outcome.
Thanks
Butch

Tub Refinishing kit


Every single one of the HD kits I've seen or even heard about either looked bad or lasted a very short time and looked worse, or both

I would recommend returning it

Hire a professional. Not as expensive as you might think and the finish will actually last.
