Can someone re-enamel a bath in situ

Yes there are companies out there that can help but could be on the expensive side of things,on the other hand if you replaced the bath then you would have to pay us plumbers for labour. The best thing to do is get a quote from a local plumber and a quote from a re-enamel company and work the difference out and go from there.

Hi there. . Yes enamelled baths can be re enamelled in situ! However its quite expensive and rather messy. Only to be carried out by experts. The fumes can be a bit of an issue. But most of all the inconvenience rwally as everything in the bathroom has to be masked off as the enamel spray gets everywhere. Will also take a good 24 hours or more to completely dry... Hope this helps...

Depending on whether it is a repair to a certain area or complete reprint- If you are looking to get area repaired and reprinted ,this is reasonably simple - an area can be flattened with glass paper and airbrushed.- I have done this to my current antique freestanding bath and you would not know it had been done. If the bath is in a state where it requires a full respray then I would advise that the bath is removed, resprayed by a specialist paint shop and then re installed.

Hi Muriel, There are companies that will do this but it is a specialized job and not cheap. Search for bath re-enamelling on Google. Regards, Pete.

Hi Muriel, Yes you can. There should be no problem doing it on site without disconnect. I have done this a couple of times now during refurbishments. If they ask for it to come out just contact another firm. Hope this helps Gary

Hi Muriel. I did a job last year and had a specialist company out to look at re-enameling a bath and we had to take it out and send it away to be done. I googled it and found a firm online.

What would you like to do now?
