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 a another room while the tub/shower is being sprayed.

"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 fraction of 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!"
