If you need to have your shower tiles reglazed or repainted, you have come to the right place. Tile refinishing for showers is generally a very affordable prices. That being said, there are differences between refinishing or reglazing and painting, which we will go over now.
What Is The Primary Difference Between Reglazing/Refinishing and Painting?
Refinishing your shower tiles are going to require specialized primers, bonding agents, coating, finishes, and equipment in order to get done. But the real difference between refinishing your shower tiles and painting them comes down to durability and longevity.
Plain and simple, painting your shower tiles may look nice, but it’s not going to be quite as durable or resistant to general wear and tear as refinishing them will, so you’ll have to spend more money on having the tiles down again down the road.
Furthermore, tile refinishing or reglazing is essentially the only way that the original look of the tile can be recreated. Painting will look nice, but it’s not going to look exactly as it did before. This is because ceramic tiles are typically painted with spray enamels or with epoxy, that’s not going to look the exact same way as tile that has been professionally refinished.
That being said, painting is a undoubtedly a far cheaper and simpler option to apply to your shower tiles. Therefore, if you are on a serious budget and just want to improve the look of your tiles in the immediate short term, painting will definitely be the way to go in this circumstance.
