Popular Hotel Services

Hotel bathroom

Those online reviews can make or break upcoming bookings, and bathrooms remain a strong focus of guest comments. NuFinishPro has a wide variety of services for the hotel bathroom, giving each guest a fresh and pristine experience in the shower and bathtub. With our experience—we have been restoring hotel bathtubs and showers since 1987—we can take care of your updates quickly and professionally, giving your business very little down time between guests. Instead of asking you to invest time and money in remodeling, we inspect the existing fixtures to spot-repair what’s needed. Then we apply a custom color to the surfaces and refinish the tile, bathtub, and shower to make the bathroom look new again. And for your guests’ safety, our services include applying a non-slip solution and chemical cleaning. Ask us what other services are available, too.

Spot Repairs

Wear and tear from frequent guest use is normal in the hotel industry. We see bathtub or shower damage caused by rust, chips, stress cracks, and dullness all the time; but NuFinishPro can spot repair your existing shower or tub with minimal down time, completing all work within a 4-hour turnaround time. After the spot repair is finished, we can even color match the existing coating so that the surface looks perfect. We repair non-plumbing damage as well. Once the work is done there will be no lingering odor, so you are ready for your next guests.

Custom Color Matching

The eye catches those little differences in shading when repairs are made, and that’s why custom color matching is another popular service. We will help you make your fixtures match the color of any other surface in your bathroom. Updating the look of your existing bathtub, shower, or sink is essential for a fresh bathroom look. We can even make your yellowed bathtub coating look white again, or if you like, we’ll change it to a completely different color. We can match any custom color from the Sherwin-Williams paint deck, apply a granite-like finish, or create any other color. All you have to do is provide us with the color code and color name.

Non-Slip Treatment

Your guests’ safety is our priority, too. NuFinishPro can help you reduce the chances of slipping with our non-slip solution. We clean the existing surface, apply the non-slip treatment, and deep clean the surface with a minimal 4-hour curing time. Non-slip solution not only lowers the possibility of an accident—it is also environmentally friendly. And it saves you up to 75% of the cost of replacing the tub or shower!

Bath mats or non-slip solution

Non-skid

Bath mats are a great way to enhance the look of your bathtub or shower after it has been refinished, you have a choice between a specialty non-toxic bathmat or applying a non-skid coating. A specialty bathmat that is specially made for refinished bathtub can enhance to look of a bathtub, help prevent slipping and reduce wear and tear on your refinished bathtub or shower floor. Another alternative to a bath mat is a non-slip solution, a textured coating that is applied during the refinishing process that reduces the chances of slipping in the shower or bathtub.

The advantages of a non-slip solution is that there is no mat to remove or clean, the average life of the non-slip solution is one to two years, but the coating wears out and erodes over time, requiring replacement or repair by a specialist. Regular maintenance and cleaning on the part of the owner is required to be performed on the non-skid coating for the coating to last, which is why this option is not a popular item for use on residential bathrooms and showers. You see a non-slip solution in a commercial shower or handicap shower or tub, another thing to keep in mind is if you are not satisfied with the non-skid coating, a technician is required to come on site to remove the non-slip solution at additional cost after the job is done.

Bath mats are the most common and popular in residential dwellings, due to the highly visible nature of a bathmat, even if a non-skid coating is present a bathmat is still recommended for the floor. A bath mat is easier to replace than a non-skid coating and does not require a technician to come on site and replace. However, not all bathmats are created equal, buying the wrong bath mat for your bathtub or shower can cause the coating to blister or rust due to the acids present in the material that the mat is made from, when mixed with water, will slowly damage the newly applied coating over time. There are certified bath mats available that are non-toxic and made of natural materials, they are safe for your refinished bathtub or shower and are machine washable, contact us at NuFinishPro for more information at 855-664-1151.

Both bath mats and non-slip solutions have their purpose, non-slip solutions are most commonly found in commercial and hotel showers and handicap facilities where the owner does not mind replacing the non-coating every 1 to 2 years but may be impractical for a residential dwelling due to the high maintenance involved. On the other hand bathmats are very readily available, they are very common and easy to find, but for refinishing jobs, a non-toxic specialty bathmat is recommended for a bathtub and shower that has been refinished.

In June 2014, a two-story, 28 unit apartment complex in Point Loma exploded due to a bathroom refinishing project gone wrong. The explosion was caused by poor safety precautions practiced by the bathroom refinishing company hired to renovate apartment interiors. As the flammable fumes accumulated, a large section of the apartment’s bathroom exploded, causing $300,000 in property damage to the entire apartment.

Low cost refinishing companies often use hazardous materials that are not EPA approved. This is done to cut costs so they can offer the lowest price to unsuspecting customers. By cutting costs on equipment and refinishing chemicals, these so-called “affordable” refinishers put your property at risk of serious accidents and property damage. All customers seeking a bathroom refinishing company need to beware of the high risks involved when contracting companies and technicians that advertise low prices that are way below what other companies are quoting. This example illustrates that is is very important for you to work with a certified company that has had its procedures and materials carefully checked for proper safety compliance and a valid state contractor’s license.

Custom Stone-Like Color Options for Countertop Refinishing

Custom Stone-Like Color Options for Countertop Refinishing

Kitchen countertops and bathroom sink vanities undergo wear and tear over the years. Typical damages include scratches, chips, and unsightly buildup of mold and mildew. Tile surfaces with grout lines also accumulate grime and discoloration.

These types of damages can easily be fixed with countertop refinishing. The process involves resurfacing your existing countertops and vanities, then applying a new layer using the custom color option you pick.

Similar to bathtub refinishing and sink reglazing, the revolutionary process of countertop refinishing does not involve any heavy construction or removal costs like you would typically see with full-scale kitchen remodeling projects.

Once completed, your kitchen and bathroom surfaces will have a like-new appearance.

To choose the best custom stone-like color finish for your countertops, simply observe what looks good with your existing cabinets and kitchen color scheme. Many customers like to contrast light cabinets with darker colored countertop finishes.

Stone-like countertop finishes are available in many different styles and colors. You can choose from dark, medium, and light stone-like finishes, or select a solid color. These finishes are available for bathroom, shower, sink and kitchen countertop resurfacing projects.

To learn more about what colors we offer, see our Color Customization options. You can also contact us directly and we’ll be happy to help you with your next project.

Can Bath & Kitchen Refinishing Help Improve Home Value?

Can Bath & Kitchen Refinishing Help Improve Home Value?

Now is an opportune time to sell your house as prices continue to climb higher. Choosing to have your bath & kitchen surfaces refinished can significantly improve your home’s value.

As home values in the United States continue to clime in 2016, buyers are looking for houses with like-new interior fixtures. Low interest rates for mortgages, and a higher influx of buyers means more people on the lookout for houses as long-term investments.

If you’re planning to sell your home this year, then it’s a great time to put your property on the market since there is strong demand for quality houses.

When buyers look at houses for sale, they judge the value of the home based on noticeable wear and tear. The most obvious signs of an aging home can be seen in the kitchen and bathroom units. Thus, homeowners and real estate agents can greatly improve the odds of selling a house for top dollar by renovating the kitchen and bathroom areas. The better your house’s bathrooms and kitchen look, the higher price it will garner from interested buyers.

However, renovation in terms of remodeling can be very costly, since it involves construction work.

Bath and kitchen refinishing is a much more cost effective alternative. In fact, having a professional company refinish your bathtubs will save 75% on construction costs compared to replacing with new bathtubs. Bath and kitchen refinishing costs are comparatively more affordable, and in many cases can be completed within one day.

Many homeowners, real estate investors, and real estate agents are now turning to resurfacing as the preferred method to renovate bathroom fixtures, sinks and kitchen countertops. Rather than remove and replace fixtures, which can cost thousands of dollars, a simple refinishing job can cost just a few hundred dollars. The cost savings a homeowner enjoys by opting for resurfacing will yield lower cost of selling the property, and therefore a higher profit when the home is sold.

For further details, check out our Before & After gallery to see the major difference refinishing services can make on a variety of surfaces.
