And, if you don’t see your question listed below, don’t hesitate to contact us today to learn more about the process and the many benefits that come from having a professional repair your fiberglass shower!
Should I replace or repair my fiberglass shower?
This answer is almost invariably in favor of repairs. Because fiberglass can be repaired even when extensively damaged, repairs are almost always going to be cheaper than a full replacement. That being said, however, if your tub is getting on in years, it may be time for a full replacement. So, the true answer to this question is: repair is the best way to handle your shower, but a replacement is warranted if the material is getting old.
Can you repair heavy damage?
As mentioned in the last answer, yes, heavy damage can be repaired completely! Fiberglass is highly repairable, making it convenient to work with in any stage of damage.
Will I notice the repair after it’s done?
No, fiberglass repair is seamless and won’t differentiate from the original material in any way. The only time when a repair might be noticeable is if the tub or shower has a textured pattern that cannot be replicated by a repair professional, but even this is unlikely.
How long will it take to repair my shower?
Fiberglass shower repair in Phoenix can be accomplished in just a few short hours or less, depending on the severity of the damage. Some repairs may take longer based on where they’re located as well. All in all, a professional will be in and out of your home in under a few hours.
How long until I can use my shower after the repairs?
The resin used to repair your shower will be dry in a matter of minutes, but it won’t be fully cured for another eight to ten hours. It’s best not to use your shower in any capacity for at least 24-hours, however, since different repairs can cure at different rates, depending on their complexity and size.
Can fiberglass repairs to my tub be painted to match the original color?
Absolutely! When repairs are made to your tub, a repair professional will sand the fiberglass around the area where the repair is being made, to prime it for painting. When the color is matched, it can be painted and resealed so that it matches the original color of your tub.
