Kenny at Tub Tile and Tops is the only person I would call for tub resurfacing
For anyone thinking about resurfacing a tub, the only person I would call is Kenny at Tub Tile and Tops. I talked to six different companies before contracting Tub Tile and Tops for my tub because my needs were a little special. I have a stamped steel tub, which is not very thick metal, and it had pre-existing rust near the drain area when I bought my house. Since most of the bathroom is nice ceramic tile and it is right up to the edge of the tub, replacing the tub would be a big job and very expensive. I figured it would make sense to make a smaller investment to try to save the tub. Kenny was up front that rust is extremely difficult to stop, just like with a car, and he cannot give a warranty for rust issues, which was a more nuanced response than any other resurfacer would give me. Given my experience with Ohio cars (rusting from road salt), I knew Kenny was being more honest than the other contractors. Kenny's employee did a terrific job with the tub, and it looks beautiful. There is a non-slip grit in the surface so we don't fall in the tub. Recently, a little rust broke through the tub again near the drain (about 9 months to a year later), so Kenny came out himself at no charge and touched it up, even though I was aware this was a risk and I figured this was on me. He's truly a stand-up guy, and very trustworthy, plus I observed that he has a lot of experience in how to handle tub issues. For the price, this resurfacing is worth it to me just to try to get a few more years out of this tub, since so many other parts of my house need major work and I can't do everything at once. I'm glad I called Kenny for this job because it allows me to get more use out of what I have. He responds quickly when you call or email, and he cares about quality rather than turning and burning like so many other companies. I like that he gave me the right advice on what to expect along the way.
