Ceramic Tile Refinishing is an Affordable, Durable and Beautiful Alternative to Removal and Replacement of Tile Countertops, Vanities and Walls.
Ceramic Tile Refinishing — Do you understand the difference between ceramic tile refinishing and painting ceramic tile?
Ceramic tile refinishing is a process that involves specialized equipment, primers, bonding agents, top coats and clear finishes. The differences between painting vs. refinishing tile are durability, surface gloss and how long the new surface will last.
Ceramic tiles that are painted with simple spray enamels or with rolled-on epoxy will not look as good as professionally refinished tile. They will also not last as long as professionally refinished tile, nor feel like real tile.
Ceramic Tile Refinishing — Can you reglaze tile?
Ceramic tile refinishing is the only practical way to reproduce the look of original tile. The beautiful glaze you see in ceramic tile is baked on in kilns at temperatures ranging from 900F to 2500F. The term tile reglazing is a misnomer as it is impractical to remove ceramic tile that has been installed and ship it back to the factory for re-firing in a kiln.
Refinishing is a much better option to replacing ceramic tile. It is not only more practical, but also less expensive than new tile and you avoid the mess of removal and replacement. It is also far superior to a porcelain tile repair kit.
