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.
Perma-Glaze® chip 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?"
Absolutely! 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. 1-800-332-7397
