So the question is: Cheaper than what?
Bathtub refinishing does tend to be less expensive than bathtub liners. Without doubt, bathtub refinishing is vastly cheaper than the full tear-out-and-replace method. Other than the materials involved, the full tear-out-and-replace method involves costly and messy demolition.
Miracle Method SupersizedOne interesting fact to note is that a large part of Miracle Method’s business comes from commercial refinishing. Hotels and property management companies contract Miracle Method to restore their tubs, showers, and sinks en masse. Dominick notes that roughly 60% of its work is residential, 40% commercial.
In one instance, at the Port Orleans Hotel in Orlando, Florida, a Miracle Method crew refinished 20 bathtubs per day, using the leapfrog method: one worker doing all the prep work, the next worker doing all the spraying, and so on.
