Resurfacing Makes Old Tubs Like New

In this day of inflated costs and environmental concerns, resurfacing is an economical alternative to replacement. It eliminates the pollution and high energy consumption involved in manufacturing new bathtubs and ceramic tile.

Myron Dissin and Stan Rubi of Perma Ceram,Inc. (King of Prussia, PA) say that Perma Ceram can take worn bathtubs and ceramic wall tiles and apply a new surface in any color that will make them as easier to maintain. That’s how Resurfacing Makes Old Tubs Like New.

Using space age technology, Perma Ceram developed a coating that contains glass just like porcelain. We are the local Chester, Delaware, Bucks & Montgomery County area Perma Ceram dealer. Our national network of more than 250 dealers resurfaces thousands of bathrooms per year.

We want to let people know that resurfacing ceramic tile, fiberglass or acrylic tubs, sinks and bathroom fixtures, and reglazing cast iron tubs is cheaper than replacing them.

“Many people aren’t aware it is a very good alternative to replacement, which is very expensive,” says Dissin.

“Resurfacing and reglazing is a multiple process that usually requires people to be without the use of their tub for only two days,” says Rubi.

Following are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about the Perma Ceram process, which comes with a five year warranty.
