Does it Work?
The uncommon beauty of Perma-Glaze is the result of our remarkable process which combines unbeatable depth and richness of color with a uniquely ultra-durable surface that retains its lustrous like-new look.
Bathroom and kitchen fixtures need refinishing for both cosmetic and hygienic reasons. When surface becomes worn or cracked, allowing stains to appear, it has become pitted or porous. This allows dirt and germ deposits to take hold and build up.
With the Perma-Glaze process, the old, worn, unsightly surface is cleaned and chemically etched. Any chips, scratches or structural discrepancies are leveled and sanded smooth. Then, several layers of the exclusive Perma-Glaze synthetic porcelain are applied to the surface, creating a strong, durable, lustrous finish that is fully guaranteed.
Only a high-gloss vitreous finish like Perma-Glaze can be regularly disinfected and sanitized, yet remain stain-resistant, safe and appealing.
destructive as well as tedious chores are completely avoided when
resurfacing with Perma-Glaze. Breaking and removing wall tile and
gouging dry wall as well as cutting through 2 x 4 framing can be
totally eliminated. This messy, noisy and expensive work, typically
requiring the services of a carpenter, plumber, and tile setter are
no longer needed with Perma-Glaze's on-site refinishing/restoration
process. Perma-Glaze eliminates the inconveniences!
Frequently Asked Questions
"Can my existing fixtures be cleaned or polished to restore the shine they've lost?"
If your fixture is made
of fiberglass, acrylic, or cultured marble, it can - in some cases -
be polished. (Consult your local franchisee). If normal household
cleaners fail to bring back the shine on your other fixtures, your
finish has most likely been damaged or worn and has probably become
pitted and porous. The more you scrub, the worse it will be.
"Why should I use Perma-Glaze instead of replacing my existing bathtub?"
Put yourself in the
position of someone deciding whether to replace or refinish an
existing bathroom. Replacement fixtures are almost invariably of
lesser quality than the original. (They don't make them like they use
to!) Perma-Glaze's refinishing/restoration process takes hours verses
weeks of expensive removal and replacement of bathtubs, tiles and
other fixtures. Additionally, tub removal and replacement costs
average between $1,500 to $3,000. The cost of a Perma-Glaze®
refinishing is a fraction of this average: about 15%. Customers
realize a savings close to 85%!
"Can Perma-Glaze repair chips and cracks?"
Yes! Perma-Glaze® can easily restore worn, chipped or broken tile without the hassle or expense of replacement. Existing fixtures such as bathtubs, sinks, floor, kitchen and wall tiles, countertops and more can be repaired and resurfaced for a fraction of replacement costs.
Damaged porcelain, fiberglass, vitreous china, cast iron, stainless steel, Formica and cultured marble can also be restored with a matching finish, avoiding the cost along with the inconvenience of replacement.
repairs result in a like-new finish, durable enough that the same
guarantee of a new fixture is offered by Perma-Glaze®. The
resurfacing process includes original, matte, satin, speckle and
glossy. Perma-Glaze® can be used to completely refinish a fixture or
surface, or to repair isolated chips to their original finish.
Customers are extremely gratified with Perma-Glaze and the price.
"When I have a fixture Perma-Glazed, does it require special care or cleaning materials?"
No! The new Perma-Glaze® finish should be cleaned with a non-abrasive cleaner just as you would with a new fixture or tile. Abrasives are capable of damaging even the most durable surfaces.
"Can a single chip in my fixture be repaired?"
Yes! It can be completely blended into the surface.
"Is Perma-Glaze® real porcelain?"
No, it is a
state-of-the-art synthetic glaze which has the luster and texture of
porcelain with unbelievable durability and toughness.
"Does Perma-Glaze® come in different colors and finishes?"
Perma-Glaze® is available in a wide variety of designer colors,
textures and finishes – gloss, matte, satin, speckle and stone
finishes – sure to complement any decor. Custom colors are easily
mixed to match existing surfaces.
"How long does it take to Perma-Glaze® a fixture, tile or appliance?"
Usually a few hours and always less than one day. Most of the time is spent in preparing the original surface for reglazing. When the Perma-Glaze® has been applied, there is only a 48 hour "curing" time required before the fixture can be used. (Accelerated curing time is, in some cases, available).
"What should I do to prepare the fixture for the Perma-Glaze® process?"
Repair or replace any
plumbing problems (leaking faucets, broken handles, pipes) and remove
any hardware such as shower doors and tracks which are directly
connected to the tub or sink.
"Will Perma-Glaze® refinishing cause any damage or harm to my home or pets?"
Definitely not! Any
odors from chemicals we use are exhausted by window or fan and gone
within a few hours.
"Why should I choose Perma-Glaze® for my refinishing needs?"
There are many reasons!
Perma-Glaze® is one of the most established and respected names in
the multi-surface restoration industry. Perma-Glaze® is safer
because our products do not contain harmful polyicocyanate resins.
Perma-Glaze® is also incredibly beautiful, with exceptional shine
and depth of gloss.
"Is there a charge for an estimate or inspection?"
No! We realize there is always a question or two not covered in a brochure. Please call and let us answer it for you, personally.
