It is not necessarily ruined and in most cases it can be repaired. We can install permanent inlays and can repair mostly any type of damage in any area of the bathtub.
I heard some companies claim they use porcelain in their coating, is this possible?
False! There isn’t a process in the refinishing industry that can spray porcelain on your bathtub. Porcelain must be kiln fired at over 2500 degrees. Beware of companies claiming to do so, it is simply impossible.
