Hotels and Motels – Upgrade Your Property with Reglazing & Refinishing

30. September, 2013|Reglazing

Reglaze tubs, sinks and tile and eliminate a common source of negative customer reviews

In today’s digital age, hotel and motel properties increasingly rely on their online reputation to generate guest traffic. This is especially true of destination hotels, where guests have time, opportunity and desire to do lots of research beforehand to make sure they have an enjoyable stay. Cleanliness is often a big concern to guests, and properties that appear dirty tend to get bad reviews online. In order to prevent your hotel from racking up negative reviews for being dirty, old, or outdated, you need to invest in expert reglazing from Pronto Refinish. Here’s an overview of the process.

Identify Problem Areas

The first step is to identify the problem areas in your hotel or motel. For example, maybe your bathtubs have rust stains, your tile is cracked, or your sink is scratched and pitted. Any of these problems can make a bathroom look dirty even when it has been freshly cleaned. Fortunately, reglazing can cover up these flaws, creating a smooth, fresh, like-new surface that will look clean and appealing to guests.

Schedule the Work

Once you’ve identified which rooms and fixtures need reglazing, you can work with Pronto Refinish to set up a schedule for completing the work. You may want to wait until your off season to do the work, or you may be able to schedule it for a weekday where you normally have low occupancy rates anyway. If you have lots of rooms that need work, you can even have us come do just a few at a time so that you always have enough rooms free for guests at any given time. Remember that the reglazing compound will have to cure before a guest can use any refinished surfaces.

Welcome Pronto Refinish to Your Property

Once you’ve set up a schedule with us, all you have to do is direct us to the rooms that need work. The disruption to your business will be very minimal, especially compared to the noisy, dusty, and dirty alternative of ripping out and replacing the bathroom fixtures. Our professional techs will remove the sink and tub fixtures and mask off the area to make sure we don’t get the reglazing compound anywhere it doesn’t belong. This makes cleaning up after reglazing or refinishing virtually effortless.

Educate Cleaning Staff on Caring for Refinished Surfaces

The final step in upgrading your hotel or motel with refinishing is to make sure your cleaning staff knows how to care for the reglazed surfaces properly. Only non-abrasive cleaners should be used, and they should be sure to wipe the tub dry after cleaning in order to prevent mineral buildup or rust. Also, rings and other jewelry that might scratch the tub’s surface should not be worn while cleaning as this could lead to future peeling or staining.

Reglazing sinks, tile and tubs can transform a tired old bathroom into a selling point

As a real estate agent, you know that the kitchen and the bathrooms are some of the most important rooms in a home when it comes to making a good first impression on a potential buyer. Many buyers want to be able to imagine themselves at home in the property immediately, so it’s important to make the kitchen and bathroom look clean, fresh, appealing, and immediately useable. If you’re struggling to sell a home with some major kitchen and bathroom flaws, you may want to introduce your clients to the wonders of reglazing. Here are the key points to mention to your client.

Reglazing Solves a Variety of Problems

Reglazing solves functional and aesthetic problems with kitchens and bathrooms. It can cover up stains, scratches, cracks, and chips in tubs, sinks, and tile to create a smooth, like-new surface. It can also be used to transform old, outdated color schemes into something new and fresh. At Pronto Refinish we have dozens of designer colors to choose from in our collection of reglazing compounds.

Reglazing is Fast

Unlike a bathroom remodel, which can take days or even weeks, sink and/or tub reglazing takes just one day. All it takes is a visit from a team of professional reglazing technicians, which will take an hour or two, and then a few more hours for the newly reglazed fixtures to cure. This means your client can quickly upgrade a bathroom using reglazing without taking the home off the market or making it unshowable for an extended period of time.

Reglazing is Affordable

If your client is concerned about the cost of reglazing, you can assure them that it is minimal, especially compared to other options like ripping out the old fixtures and replacing them with new ones. For example, replacing an old bathtub can cost $4,000, while reglazing a tub will cost about $455.

Reglazing will Add Value to Your Home

Remind your client that if they don’t fix the problems in their kitchen or bathroom they will probably end up paying for it anyway, because the buyer will try to negotiate to get the cost of the remodel taken off the final price of the home. It’s much better to preempt this strategy by getting reglazing to correct any issues with sinks, tubs, and tile. The more appealing the home is, the more bids they will get and the better the selling price will be.

Reglazing your sinks, tubs, and tile is an excellent way to make your bathroom more attractive and boost your resale value.

It’s common knowledge that the kitchen and the bathroom are two of the most important features impacting a home’s resale value. Reglazing your sinks, tile, and tubs can give either of these two rooms a much-needed makeover and boost your resale value accordingly. Here’s how.

Instant Bathroom Makeover

Unlike a total bathroom remodel, reglazing can be done in matter of hours at a very affordable price. This enables you to give your ugly bathroom an instant makeover as soon as you decide to put your home on the market. Reglazing will cover up flaws in your sinks and tubs, such as cracks, stains, chips, scratches, and pitting to create a beautiful like-new surface. Plus, our reglazing compounds come in lots of different designer colors, so you can redo your bathroom décor at the same time you freshen your fixtures.

Reduce Maintenance

One thing buyers don’t like to see is a bathroom that they know will require constant maintenance. In order words, a bathroom full of grout! Grout needs constant attention or else it can mildew, stain, and even pull away from the tile or tub surround, potentially allowing moisture to penetrate behind the tub, shower, or sink and cause even more costly maintenance issues. By investing in tile reglazing, you can show potential buyers a smooth, sleek new surface that poses none of the problems of grout. Our reglazing compounds are stain- and mildew-resistant for virtually maintenance-free beauty.

Add Green Appeal

To a certain type of buyer, green features are worth investing in. By getting reglazing, you can make your home more appealing to this type of buyer. They’ll know that you chose to reuse your fixtures by restoring them with reglazing, rather than ripping them out and carting them off to the landfill. We even offer eco-friendly reglazing compounds to give your project additional green credibility.

Make Your Home Move-In Ready

Most buyers are looking for a property they can move into and use immediately. A home with old, grungy sinks and tubs probably won’t fit the bill. By getting reglazing, you can make it easier for potential buyers to imagine themselves buying the property, moving in right away and beginning to enjoy their new home immediately.

Restore your Damaged and Dated Bathtub

Restoring your damaged and dated bathtub is easy with help from Pronto Refinish

Is your bathtub chipped, scratched, stained, or otherwise superficially damaged? Is it an ugly color that marks it as a relic from the 1970s? Bathtub reglazing from Pronto Refinish is the fast, easy, and affordable way to correct either or both of these problems.

Step 1: Contact Us for a Free Estimate

If you’re interested in restoring your damaged or dated bathtub with reglazing, you can contact us for a free estimate. In general, you can expect to spend less than $500 to completely refinish your tub and get a fresh, clean, like-new surface. Compare that to the $4,000 cost of your typical tub replacement or the $2,400 cost of your average tub liner install, and it’s clear that reglazing delivers a better value.

Step 2: Schedule Your Appointment

If you’re happy with your estimate, the next step is to set up your appointment. You’ll need to reserve a block of about 4 hours for us to complete the work. We’ll take care of removing or masking off any fixtures so that the reglazing compound doesn’t get on them, so the only prep work you have to worry about is letting us into the building and selecting your reglazing color. We’ll fill in any chips and cracks before we begin to ensure the new surface is smooth. Then we’ll apply the reglazing compounds and finish it all off with a final sprayed topcoat for a high gloss finish.

Step 3: Give the Tub Time to Cure

Your tub will look like new once we finish the reglazing process, but it won’t quite be ready to use yet. If you’ve used our traditional reglazing method, the tub will require 48 hours to cure. If you’ve used our Eco Process, it will require just 1 hour.

Step 4: Care for Your Newly Restored Tub

After your tub has been reglazed, you’ll need to take good care of it to ensure that your new surface doesn’t become damaged like the old one did. Use non-abrasive cleaners and a soft sponge to avoid creating scratches that may lead to staining. Also, don’t use bath accessories that attach with suction cups, as these can cause the new surface to pull away from the tub. We also recommend wiping the tub dry with a towel after each use to prevent rust and mineral buildup.

Our skilled refinishing technicians can carefully fill in any chips or cracks and then cover them with layers of reglazing compound in order to repair the sink. You won’t even be able to tell the damage ever happened.
