Questions about the Refinishing Process

Why should I consider refinishing?

Surface refinishing is a cost effective makeover alternative to replacing a bathtub, countertop or tile that is worn out, damaged, hard to clean, or simply the wrong color. Miracle Method will repair chips or cracks and restore the surface to look and feel like new. You’ll save thousands of dollars and avoid days or even weeks of demolition mess and costly replacement.

What surfaces can you refinish?

Bathtubs - porcelain, fiberglass, acrylic, cultured marble, clawfoot tubs

Countertops - laminate, Formica®, tile, solid surfaces (Corian®, Silestone® etc), cultured marble

Ceramic Tile - walls, countertops, shower pans, showers, floors

How much money can I save over replacement?

Refinishing can save you up to 75% over the cost of replacement. Bathtub replacement starts with a new bathtub, which will typically cost between $200 and $500. However, the total cost to install can be $3,000 or more!

What kind of repairs can you make?

Bathtub repair can be performed on many types of tubs including porcelain, fiberglass, acrylic or marble. We can repair chips and cracks.

Refinished countertops by Miracle Method can be repaired if accidentally scorched or chipped by sharp knives.

Tiles that have been chipped can be repaired before refinishing. Missing grout will be replaced before refinishing. Refinishing has an added benefit of sealing the grout.

How long does it take?

A standard size bathtub, in reasonable condition, takes only 3 to 5 hours to refinish. The tub will typically be ready to use within 24 hours, or even sooner with special curing procedures.

Miracle Method offers two countertop & tile finish options. The first is a solid color or speckled finish that takes 3 to 5 hours and is ready to use the next day. The second option is our Natural Accents™ stone finish. An affordable upgrade, Natural Accents typically takes two days to apply and an additional 24 to 48 hours to cure, depending on humidity and ambient temperatures.

Is there an odor?

Bathtub refinishing topcoats contain solvents, which are necessary to make the finish hard and durable. We use special ventilation fans to exhaust air from the work area outside, minimizing the fresh paint like odor. 80% to 90% of the smell will be exhausted within the first 4 to 5 hours and substantially gone within a day.

Questions About the Finish

How long will the new finish last?

With proper care and maintenance, Miracle Method refinishing can extend the useful life of your fixtures for up to 10-15 years or more. Our MM-4 bonding agent creates a chemical bond between old and new surfaces, assuring you long life for your refinished tub, tile and countertops.

How durable is the finish?

Miracle Method uses the most technologically advanced coatings available. These finishes are designed to stand up to daily use and do not require special care. However, like any bathtub, laminate, tile or man made surface, a refinished surface can be chipped, cut or burned if it is abused. However, unlike these other surfaces, Miracle Method can repair and return a refinished surface to like new.

Does it require special care?

You’ll find our care instructions are similar to those for most brand new bathtubs or countertops…do not use cleaners that contain abrasives, harsh acids, or bleach. Most bathtubs, sinks and tile become worn and dull due to abrasive cleansers, not from time.

What are my color choices?

Miracle Method can match any existing color or create almost any custom color of your choosing. We also offer Natural Accents®, a stone look in a variety of colors and textures for countertops, vanities and tile surrounds.

Will the surface look painted?

The deep gloss of a Miracle Method refinished bathtub resembles new porcelain. In fact, most people will have a difficult time telling any difference between a new bathtub and a Miracle Method refinished tub...the Miracle Method process is that good!

A Miracle Method refinished countertop resembles new laminate. If refinished in Natural Accents®, the new surface will resemble the more expensive natural stone or Silestone. Most people will have a difficult time telling any difference between a Miracle Method refinished countertop and a newly installed laminate or solid surface countertop.

Questions about Miracle Method

What makes Miracle Method’s refinishing process superior?

The combination of diligent preparation, our proprietary MM-4 bonding agent, advanced coatings and final detailing sets Miracle Method apart from all other refinishers. The original surface is always completely cleaned and surface scratches and chips are filled and repaired. 

Next the surface is treated with MM-4, a unique proprietary bonding agent, which creates a molecular bond between the cleaned surface and the new coating. No other company uses all these steps and the one-of-a-kind MM-4 bonding agent.

Do you offer a warranty?

Yes! On residential work we offer a five-year warranty for bathtubs, wall tile and fiberglass units. This warranty covers workmanship, peeling or other failure of adhesion of the new coating. On our countertop refinishing we offer a five-year limited warranty against adhesion failure.

Commercial work comes with a 1-year warranty.
