Sink Refinishing

If you have a beautiful sink and vanity in your bathroom that is showing its age, don’t despair. You don’t have to rip it out and start over; instead, consider having your sink refinished. This process will restore the finish and beauty of your sink, and make it look like new—usually at a much cheaper cost than replacing the entire unit.

The actual refinishing process is quick, and your sink will be ready to use in just 24 hours. First of all, the technician will remove the drain cover from your sink and make any necessary repairs. Sometimes the sink may have chips, holes or a few cracks in it due to years of wear and tear. These will be filled in with body filler and then sanded to a smooth finish. Any rust will be ground down and then built back up with filler and again sanded until the surface is smooth. These imperfections will not be noticeable when the process is finished.

The next step in the process is to remove any dirt and dust from the sink using a tack cloth. Finally, the technician will sterilize it. At this point the sink is ready to be primed; after the primer has dried, the sink refinish expert will then apply the glaze. Professionals will often use a fume exhauster to reduce the odor while refinishing sinks and will carefully protect the rest of your bathroom and appliances during the refinishing process.

A nice perk to sink refinishing is that if you are tired of the color of your sink and would like to add a splash of color to your bathroom, most professionals offer several color options for the sink refinishing. Some popular color choices include almond, bone and biscuit. It’s surprising that such an insignificant change can make a big difference in your bathroom. With such an economical upgrade to your bathroom, you will probably have enough money left over to splurge on some new colorful towels and bath mats for the bathroom.

Having a sink refinish expert do the work will give you the beautiful result you are looking forand will be a quick and easy home improvement. Your sink and vanity will look like new, will freshen up your entire bathroom and will last for years to come.
