Make Over Your Bathroom or Kitchen Without Removal and Replacement


(ARA) - Americans are caught up in the makeover craze, but as much as they'd like to remove and replace the avocado green tubs, pink tile and yellow countertops that abound in homes built in the 60s and 70s, they shy away from the idea because of the expense. Replacing those fixtures can cost thousands; hire a remodeling contractor and the costs escalate. But there is a simpler, more cost-effective way to get the makeover of your dreams -- have the tub, tile and countertops resurfaced.

That's what they do at some of the world's most recognized hotel chains, including Marriott, Hilton, Holiday Inn and Sheraton, and you'd never know it. "Hotels revamp their bathrooms every couple of years to keep them looking clean and fresh. And it's so affordable, you can do it in your own home too," says Chuck Pistor, president of Miracle Method a surface restoration company with more than 100 locations nationwide.

Established over 25 years ago, Miracle Method has refinished bathroom and kitchen surfaces for millions of homeowners, making porcelain, ceramic tile, fiberglass, acrylic, cultured marble and laminate surfaces look and feel like new again. "The key to a durable surface-refinishing job is the process of cleaning, preparation and bonding, What separates Miracle Method from other refinishers is not only our attention to detail, but also our proprietary bonding agent. It is what makes the new finish stick to the old surface like no other resurfacing process," says Pistor.

Miracle Method offers the following advice to determine if refinishing is right for you.

Do you want to save time and money?

If you want a new look for your bathroom, but don't want to spend thousands of dollars remodeling, then refinishing is your best value. With refinishing, you will pay only 10 to 15 percent of the cost of replacement, and you can be using your bathroom the very next day!

Is a refinished tub durable?

Refinished tubs or ceramic tiles can easily last 10 to 15 years or more when the right process and bonding is used. A new porcelain bathtub may last a few years longer, but the replacement cost of a new tub can be nearly triple the cost of refinishing.

Do you want a custom color?

Miracle Method can match nearly any color in your decorating plans. Custom colors make refinishing a great redecorating value, especially when it can take as little as 24 hours!

What about kitchen counters and sinks?

Whether it's burns, chips, cracks, knife marks on laminate countertops, worn out porcelain sinks, or outdated tile backsplashes, Miracle Method has a durable, cost-effective solution for any kitchen.

According to Pistor, "when choosing the right refinisher for your bathroom or kitchen remodeling project, remember to ask lots of questions. Refinishing is a great process if it is done with the right materials and techniques, but all refinishing is not the same, so be sure to ask lots of questions. How long has the company been in business? Do they use corrosive acids in your home? Do they ventilate the room and do they offer a guarantee? Before making a decision definitely ask for references."

Miracle Method offers a five-year guarantee against peeling or failure of adhesion. A refinished surface should last 10 to 15 years with the same care and maintenance recommended by new tub manufacturers.
