Let us help you save money...Why refinishing?
The refinishing process is superior to replacement and renovation in several ways; the downtime is hours instead of days or weeks and the cost of removing and replacing a bathtub alone can cost upwards to $3000.00. The refinishing process can be applied right over your dated and worn laminate, tile, cultured marble, Corian® and even fiberglass surfaces. The results can be dramatic and is an affordable alternative to pricey Formica®, Corian®, Swanstone™ and other solid surfaces.
The key to a good refinishing job is getting the new finish to stick to the old surface. Paper Street Refinishing takes the necessary steps before the refinishing process even begins by removing dirt, oils, grease and soap residue. This ensures the surface is prepped properly and ready for the bonding agent used that will chemically "bond" the new finish onto the old surface.
Solid colors of white, bone, or almond are traditional and practical. Paper Street Refinishing also offers our stone accent colors. These stone-like finishes are available in many designer colors and allow for some dramatic makeovers.

A refinished surface is seamless, non-porous, heat resistant and scratch resistant. In the unlikely event that the finish is damaged, it can easily be repaired.
Small chips and cracks can usually be repaired during the preparation stage of the refinishing process. If it is just a single chip, we can often fill and refinish just the damaged area and with careful color matching, the repaired chip will be practically invisible.
In need of safety options, Paper Street Refinishing offers slip resistant surface applications for bathtubs and shower pans. It will not only help reduce the risk of slipping and falling, but is also sanitary and easy to clean. Bathmats can collect mold and mildew and become unsanitary. Removing them regularly is a nuisance. Bathmats with strong suction cups can damage tub finishes if left in place too long. Appliqués tend to collect dirt and mildew. They can also crack and become unsightly. Over time appliqués cause uneven wear of the tub surface so that the outline of old appliqués can become completely etched into the tub finish. A slip resistant surface applied by Paper Street Refinishing is chemically bonded to the bathtub or shower. It becomes integrated to the bottom of the tub and won’t crack or peel.
Tile refinishing is a process that involves specialized equipment, primers, bonding agents, top coats and clear finishes. The differences between painting vs. refinishing tile are durability, surface gloss and how long the new surface will last.
Tiles that are painted with simple spray enamels or with rolled-on epoxy will not look as good as professionally refinished tile. They will also not last as long as professionally refinished tile, nor feel like real tile.
Refinishing is a much better option to replacing tile. It is not only more practical, but also less expensive than new tile and you avoid the mess of removal and replacement.
