My tub was refinished by someone else and is peeling. What happened?
Most likely you have a surface bonding problem. The company that refinished your tub most likely used either inexpensive, inferior materials, and/or poorly trained personnel. Proper preparation of the surface prior to refinishing is critical and some companies that provide low bids cut corners by neglecting this part of the process. At Affordable Refinishing we only use the finest materials and our technicians are highly trained.
