Has anyone tried "Miracle Method" resurfacing?
« on: April 10, 2017, 03:18:17 PM »
I'd like to remod my sturdy but cosmetically awful circa 1961 brown and pink bathroom. $16k seems to be the low end to re-tile, replace the chipped tub, and redo the surround.

I came across miraclemethod.com franchise in my area. They do a plastic-like industrial coating over existing tile, tubs, or counters for hospitals, hotels, and such.

Does anyone have experience with this company or similar? Would you consider this worth a try to save a few thousand?

There is a lot of companies who do this.  I had wall to wall blue tile, blue tub, and blue tile sink.  Cost was $980.  That's more than a few thousand saved over $16k.  You could do it yourself for$300-$400, but it's a real hassle.  It's my understanding that the application will occasionally need to be redone every 5-7 years.

Yea, and the quality of those services no doubt varies from basically spray-paint at the low end to a true industrial coating at the high end.

Are you satisfied with the finish, or is it basically pickup truck bedliner spray? Is it easy to clean? Resistant to damage?

We've used it on a repair in a bathtub.  We decided to have the entire tub resurfaced with it instead of patching it.  The company we used had good ratings and reviews and it's held up well, but I can't speak to longevity as it's only been about a year so far.

It looks like tile.  Time will tell on damage.
