Reviving Your Cracked Fiberglass Bathtub with Expert Repair Techniques

When it comes to your home, every detail matters. That's why at Tub Dad, we take pride in our expertise in fiberglass bathtub repair. We understand the importance of a bathtub that not only functions flawlessly but also looks stunning. Our meticulous repair process, using top-quality materials and expert techniques, ensures that your fiberglass bathtub is restored to its former glory.


Step 1: Structural Stability with 2 Pound Foam Injection We start by injecting the bottom of the tub with 2-pound foam. This step is crucial for ensuring future stability and preventing any potential issues. The foam expands to fill any gaps between the tub and sub floor and in doing so provides a solid foundation for the repair.


Step 2: Applying Fiberglass Resin Sheet and Resin Next, we apply a fiberglass resin sheet and resin to the damaged area. The resin sheet is carefully placed and saturated with resin, ensuring a strong bond. We then heat the resin to ensure proper curing and adhesion, creating a durable repair.


Step 3: Sanding and Bondo Application After the resin has cured, we sand the surface to smooth out any imperfections and prepare it for the Bondo application. We apply three coats of Bondo, drying and sanding in between each layer to achieve a smooth and even finish. This process ensures that the repair is seamless and blends in perfectly with the rest of the bathtub.


Step 4: Finishing Touches with Glaze To complete the repair, we apply a glaze that not only hides the repair but also gives the bathtub a brand-new look. The glaze is applied carefully to ensure a uniform finish, leaving your bathtub looking as good as new.


At Tub Dad, we understand the importance of quality craftsmanship and attention to detail. Our fiberglass bathtub repair services are designed to not only fix the damage but also enhance the overall look and functionality of your bathtub. Trust Tub Dad for all your fiberglass bathtub repair needs, and let us help you enjoy a beautiful and functional bathtub for years to come.
