It’s spring cleaning time again! Are you tired of scrubbing
the same lime and rust stains in your tub or shower, only to have them
reappear? It’s probably because the glaze has deteriorated to the point that the
fiberglass or porcelain are no longer protected. If the surfaces in your
bathroom are worn or damaged, you’ll never be able to keep them bright and
You’re probably thinking that the only way to remedy this problem is to replace the dingy fixture with a new one. And that’s why you’re still working on the same stains. According to homeadvisor.com, the average homeowner spends over $2,500 to remove and replace a tub, and your bathroom will be out of commission for a day or more. Who can handle being short one bathroom, especially now that the kids are out of school for the summer?
For those reasons, it can be more practical and cost-effective to hire a professional to refinish your tub or shower. Refinishing technology has come a long way from the days when the coating was uneven and only lasted a few years, at best. Not only is refinishing a fraction of the cost of replacement, your bathroom can be available within hours instead of days.
Makes sense, right? Well, here’s more good news. We have an expert, family-owned business right in our neighborhood that provides the industry-leading resurfacing solution. Fox Valley Bathtub Refinishing, based in St. Charles, takes pride in providing a safe, durable, eco-friendly refinishing solution to Fox Valley homeowners.
“We understand why families are concerned about the chemicals used in their homes,” says Bryan Earl, Fox Valley Bathtub Refinishing’s Operations Manager. “That’s why we decided to partner with Hawk Labs to offer their unique, environmentally safe coating system.

Another thing that makes Fox Valley Bathtub refinishing
special is their dedication to quality. Did you know that fewer than 10% of all
refinishers in the field have attended a professional training program? It's
true! Fox Valley’s technicians go through extensive training from Hawk Labs.
