I recently had a local company reglaze my tub, ceramic tile surround, bathroom sink and countertop. Noticing some problem areas already (chipping), and am arranging for him to come back to deal with these, since I suspect it was improper surface prep or product application. The countertop finish seems to scratch easily even when plastic bottles are moved across it.

My question: if it turns out this vendor did poor work overall, and the job does not hold up, would someone else have to strip ALL those surfaces again before reglazing? Or, can they prep the existing surfaces in some way so there's a better bond, then reapply new coating?

Thanks for any advice.

The next coat of product will not hold down the previous coat as it can't soak through it.
