Bath? Thing? Capital? And very durable, but the enamel on it is erased over the years, cracked, turns yellow and becomes rough.
And in such cases, the question of how to update the bath becomes very relevant.
In what ways can this be done?
There are two main ways to update the bath without replacing it? This is the restoration of the enamel or the installation of an acrylic liner.
When enamel is restored, the old enamel coatingCleaned, then a new layer of enamel is applied. This is the most economical way to upgrade the bath. Enamel can be done by yourself? Employment is labor-intensive, requiring thoroughness and accuracy, but special skills are not required. Special enamel coatings for baths are sold in building stores complete with all the necessary additional materials. And the main thing in this case? Follow the instructions on the enamel package. In order to update the bath, you must first carefully clean out the old enamel, degrease the surface with acid, warm the bath, then apply the enamel (in one or two layers) and allow it to dry out.
Restoration of the enamel coating can be ordered inSpecialized companies that provide services for renewal of the bath. It is quite inexpensive (although, of course, more expensive than with self-enameling). When choosing the company that will produce the work, ask the terms of the guarantee for the enamel coating? This is one of the main indicators of the quality of work. The service life of such a coating is usually 5-7 years.
Another way to update the bath? This is an acrylic insert. Liners are made strictly on request, placed inside the bath and glued to its surface with special glue. Installing the liner is more expensive than enamelling, but also its service life is higher? The bath will keep its whiteness for 15-20 years.
Also, companies specializing in restorationBaths, offer another way to restore baths? Surface coating with liquid acrylic (? Filling tank?). Technologically, the main difference from enamelling is that the coating is not applied with a brush and is not sprayed, but is poured onto the sides and flows down. The acrylic layer turns out to be thick enough that it allows to receive an even coating even on the bathroom with serious cracks and irregularities. The service life of the bulk coating is about 15 years.
