Hi
My husband and I are in the process of having our bath tub refinished. We have gotten 3 estimates. We are confused on how to pick the best one with the least amount of problems for our $$.

1. $395 2. $700 3. $280

Bid 1 uses Kotts Koating (not actually sure what that product is)
Bid 2 has not called back yet as to what type or product he uses.
Bid 3 uses a polyurthane enamel.

How do you make a fair comparison with such a dollar span and the different use of products? We can't really compare "apples for apples" can we?

Thank you

Bathtub refinishing is not the best project to Do it Yourself! A good refinishing job on a bathtub should be very glossy, smooth to the touch, and have a uniform appearance just like a new bathtub. You will never be able to duplicate the glossy finish and feel professional refinishing gives your bathtub, sink or countertops with a do-it-yourself bathtub refinishing kit!Ask yourself...Would you repaint your own car? Refinishing involves many of the same skills and materials used by professional auto body craftsmen. When you consider that 25% of all work performed by Miracle Method is redoing someone else’s attempt to refinish a bathtub, you should think twice before using a DIY bathtub refinishing kit on your bathtub.
