Deciding to refinish your bath tub, sink, shower stall, or tiles is a great decision. Here are a few questions we are frequently asked:
1. How long does it take to reglaze a tub?
If it is a 1st time reglaze approx. 3 hours, repeat reglaze 4 hours as a strip of the old coating must be done first.
2. How long does it last?
With proper care a reglazed tub can last 15 to 20 years.
3. Is there a warranty?"
Yes, 3 years for commercial/rental properties or 5 years for homeowner occupied.
4. Is there a strong smell?"
It is strong when its being sprayed however we use large extractor fans to keep the smell to a minimum and we use a fast curing coating, so the smell is generally dissipated by early evening.
5. When can the tub be used after reglazing?"
We use a coating that allows use of the tub/shower the next day.
6. Is there any danger to pets?"
Due to their inquisitive nature We recommend pets be kept in a basement or another room while the tub/shower is being sprayed.
There have been some scary stories about bacteria contamination in hidden pools in the piping of jetted tubs.
In some home, hotel or rental property situations the jetted feature of tubs may not be used for days, weeks or months. Hidden reservoirs of sitting water from the last time the jets were used is an ideal location for bacteria to fester and grow.
Sometimes the best option is to entirely convert the jetted tub to a non-jetted tub.
First we remove all jets, filters and air caps and fill in all holes. Then we refinish the entire tub and it becomes a soaker tub instead of a jetted tub. Jetted tub conversion may be your perfect solution if you are concerned about stagnant water issues in a rarely used jetted tub.

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ "Allwest Refinishing was a pleasure to deal with. They were on time, courteous, and worked very hard. They cleaned up well after themselves. This was truly a great experience. They cleaned the bathroom vanity and jetted tub and they also did the tile in the kitchen. The overall experience was excellent, and I would highly recommend them."

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ "Very professional and does fantastic work.I had always been convinced that whoever did the 'renovations' on the house I bought had used house paint to make the bathtub look 'good'. Everyone always assured me that there was NO way anyone would do that. It had a matte finish, wasn't truly white, never looked clean no matter how many times I cleaned it. The 'finish' started coming off while we were using it for just bathing - my son was always covered in flecks of paint after having a bath. I'm a prolific bather - I spend a couple hours in the tub every morning so my bathtub was a constant disappointment to me. I called Allwest and left a message to get a quote and they called me back as soon as they opened the next day. The lady I spoke to was super knowledgeable and very friendly and was able to answer all my questions and provide me with a quote. I had quotes from 3 other companies and as the pricing was all very similar, it all came down to experience and reviews. Allwest had the most experience and the best reviews so I selected them to refinish my bathtub. They got me an appointment for exactly when I wanted, showed up on time and very efficiently began the job. Guess what? The bathtub HAD been 'finished' with paint - at first the service tech thought it was house paint but it turned out it was spray paint (or 'graffiti paint' as the tech said.) He had to work VERY hard to get all that paint off the tub. That seemed to be the hard part - the refinishing part seemed to be the part that was the easiest. My bathtub looks AMAZING (the only way I'd like it better is if it grew and was a big soaker tub, which won't be happening anytime soon!) The bathtub looks brand new - it's shiny, smooth, looks exactly HOW a bathtub SHOULD look. It looks like I might even be able to CLEAN it without all manner of paint flaking off! I showed my before and after pictures to everyone who had seen my bathtub before and they were all so impressed with how fantastic and NEW the bathtub looked. Allwest offers a warranty and tells me that, with proper care, the finish should last 15-20 years (maybe enough time to save for that BIG soaker tub and a bathroom renovation!) The owner told me if there are any problems to call and they fix it right up but I not anticipating any issues - it simply looks like a brand new tub. Thank you so much to all the staff I dealt with at Allwest - everyone was so nice, knowledgeable and professional, their quote was completely accurate with no surprises and the work was exceptional. I would HIGHLY recommend Allwest to anyone looking to refinish a bathtub. " Calgary, March 2021
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ "We had Allwest Refinishing come in to resurface the bathtub and shower floor.The work was excellent." Gordon K., March 2021
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ "Very impressive.We had our marble sink & countertop repaired and refinished, and our tub refinished in Feb 2021 and...WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! Why did I wait so long? The price was reasonable (exactly as quoted), the guys were professional, and the end result is top notch! Neil provided me with the pertinent info on the phone, as well as $50 off for doing the tub at the same time. Sheila called the next day to follow up and choose a time/day. Henry was out to do the refinishing, including all the floor and wall protection, re-installing the plumbing afterwards, and a thorough clean up. I would have no problems recommending Allwest Refinishing to family and friends!" Mike M., February 2021
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ "5 star performance!Impressive finished product and very reasonable price. Certainly wouldn’t think twice about using them again or referring their work to someone else. Henry did a fantastic job on both our bathtub and shower unit—both patched up and look like new. Thank you Henry and Allwest." Elizabeth C., January 2021
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ "I am more than happy with the quality of workmanship provided,quite frankly I can't tell where the repairs were done, which of course was the objective. Super happy with the end result, and kudos to Kyle, very professional with a fantastic attitude, a genuine pleasure to do business with him. Hard to find great employees these days but it certainly looks like you have one with Kyle. Would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone needing your type of expertise." Best regards, Scott and Kim
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ "Will Recommend/Service/Professionalism: 5 Stars.No one refinishes like Henry! In the summer of 2018, Henry made several trips to our house to refinish our shower & two cultured marble sinks. He became part of the family. We baked him cookies as a token of our thanks for working so hard & making so many trips up & down the stairs. That guy is tough! When a house gets to be 16 years old, surfaces get dull, cracked and old. Allwest will look at the damage & be straight with you. They'll tell you if those surfaces can be refinished. In our case, there was no need to waste time & money ripping out & reinstalling. Henry's refinishing work turned them back to brand new. My only regret is that I didn't call Allwest sooner, as I have enjoyed my shower & sinks every day since Henry was here. Thank you Allwest!"
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ "I can't believe how great the results are,and how professional Allwest is. We had a bathtub, double sinks and shower stall that were a hideous green colour. Allwest refinished them in white and they look like brand new. They practically sparkle!"
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ "They were so professional in all of their work,and they kept their workspace clean, and taped off so it didn't affect the rest of the house."
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ "The price we paid to refinish our fixtures is a fractionof what it would have cost to replace them, and I couldn't be happier."
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ "I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them!Absolutely fantastic work, reasonable pricing, and they always showed up on time, when they said they would. Two thumbs up!"
