Bathtub refinishing is an economical and eco-friendly choice for updating your tub. Unfortunately, not all refinishing jobs are equal. While DIY refinishing kits seem like a good option, they quickly peel, bubble, and become discolored. Many companies cut corners to save on time and expenses while compromising on quality. As a locally owned and operated business in St. Charles, IL, we at Fox Valley Bathtub Refinishing go the extra mile to ensure high-quality, long-lasting results to all of our customers.

Bathtub Refinishing

Our Process

At Fox Valley, we use a chemical process to change the surface of your tub and create a long-lasting finish. For fiberglass tubs, we use acid etching to create tiny pores in the surface that help primers bond to the topcoat. For porcelain and enamel tubs, we sand or abrade to ensure proper adhesion. Once the surface is properly prepared, we apply a series of coatings that creates a durable, glossy-finish that should last for 10 to 15 years with proper care.


From acid-etching, to ventilation, to our green coatings, we are committed to using eco-friendly materials and methods.  To minimize odors and overspray, we use the strongest professional ventilation system in the industry. Our green coatings meet the US EPA standards for low volatile organic compounds (VOCs), resulting in minimal odor and harmful emissions. Because of this, our customers do not have to worry about health and safety concerns, and can use their tubs within twelve hours of refinishing.

Customer Satisfaction Is Our Priority

At Fox Valley, we provide our customers with high-quality services and products to ensure their satisfaction. For residential properties, we offer a 5-year limited warranty against peeling and failure of the adhesion coating. We also offer an optional anti-slip coating during installation to improve the safety of the tub. And, if your fixtures could use an upgrade, we install new tub drains and overflows to prevent leaks and rust from damaging your tub.
