Frequently Asked Questions - Beta Bathrooms
No - this process is called a baked enamel and Beta Bathrooms do not subscribe to this method of resurfacing. The baked enamel is a vitreous china surface - this is the same surface as when the bath was originally made.
This 'old surface' in our opinion has no real place in today's world as it has some inherent flaws and is as far as we're concerend not made for today's modern home and bathroom. The baked enamel surface is very sensitive to chemicals that are acidic and contain strong amonias. It only takes a few moments of the wrong cleaner to leave the baked enamel streaked with etchings. The Beta Bathrooms resurfacing method is to recoat the bath like like new with a coating that is chemical damage resistant.
The Beta Bathroom coating has a very special polyeurothane coating - as used by many of the yatch manufacturing companies and as such we not only achieve a smooth and silky finish, but our finish is terrifically durable.
When you polish an original bath surface you will achieve a smooth and glossy shine, but this will not be as white and shinny as the original bath or what we can achieve by resurfacing the bath.
Of course - Beta Bathrooms polish all their baths after we've resurfaced | reenamelled your bath. This comes as part of our full service package to resurface a bath.
Remember - if a bath is damaged with cracks, wholes, chips or stains, the act of polishing it will not alter or improve the damaged areas - in fact it might just make the problem areas stand out more.
Just polishing a bath is perfect if your bath is ony slighly worn and just want to buff up it's gloss.
In our experience we find that the client is a much happier customer when we give them our full Rolls Royce treatment on their bath - i.e. a full bath resurfacing which includes a FREE polish treatment.
