In our experience – one’s bathroom is either one’s haven of peace or a matter of great unhappiness in the home!
There is nothing more relaxing and rewarding than rejuvenating one’s self after a hard day at work in a beautiful and peaceful bathroom. And yes this includes a pristine bath.
However, the cost and inconvenience of replacing one’s current bath and having a new one fitted leaves many a home owner feeling considerably frustrated and helpless not to mention depressed about having our daily bath!
So let’s look at a few scenarios:
Do you have a really ‘gross’ looking bath? Nothing worse right?
So what do you do? Well, if you’ve recently visited your local home improvement store you would have realised that you can source a reasonably quality bath for about R 1, 200.00. That’s not too shabby all things considered, right?
Question is – have you considered ‘all things’? Did you stop to consider the added cost of employing a contract plumber, rubble removal guy, tiler, brickie and painter? Eish – not so reasonable any more… right?
Wait – there’s more…
Autumn is here – and we have just a week or two before the real winter season hits us in Cape Town. It's therefore important to use this time to finish up any last minute maintenance projects around your home that will prepare your plumbing for winter weather.
We've been resurfacing baths, basins, toilets and tiles since 1990 and the main reason we get a call out to resurface an item is because the it's has been scratched, cracked or stained. Another reason, especially with older pieces is that the bottom of a bath has faded and become dull with age and is now rough and hard to clean - almost porous! It doesn't matter how hard you scrub these baths - they will just never look clean enough to their owner or housekeeper.
Which baths are effected by these issues I hear you ask?
