The ceramic tile in your bathroom is still in good shape, but you’d really like to update the colour. The problem is, you’re not too excited about all of the time and upheaval that comes with replacing it. If you find yourself in this situation, having your tile professionally refinished can be a great option – here’s why:
Less expensive than new tile
The total cost of replacing tile is much more than just the price of the new tile. This is a full-blown construction project, so you have to also factor in the cost of all the tear-out and installation work done by the carpenter, plumber and tile setter. Compare that with cost of refinishing your tiles, which is significantly lower because you don’t need to hire any other professionals to do additional work for you.
Faster replacement and less mess
Ripping and replacing tile can take several weeks, because of all the additional prep work you need to do before you re-tile. You often need to install new drywall and sometimes even a new floor, shower pan or bathtub, all of which can get damaged when you remove the tiles. The whole process also creates a huge amount of dust and mess. However, professional tile refinishing is a relatively mess-free process that only takes a day to complete. None of the surrounding areas are harmed and you don’t have to clean anything up afterward.
Almost any tile surface can be refinished, including tile floors, walls and vanities. Even the ceramic tile in your bathtub or shower surround, which is exposed to a lot of moisture, is a good candidate.
If you rip out all your old tiles, you create a lot of waste that is most likely going to end up in a landfill, unless you can find someone willing to reuse them. Refinishing your existing ceramic tiles results in less garbage and less negative environmental impact.
