Our refinishing coatings are incredibly durable. Our coatings are designed for their intended use. However, just like a brand new surface, a refinished surface can be chipped or cracked if it is abused.
A bathroom or kitchen fixture refinished with Hawk coatings should easily last 10 to 15 years or longer with proper care and maintenance.
We apply a high performance, purpose designed fully cross-linked Acryiic Urethane coating over the existing surface, without any tear out or replacement, giving the surface a like-new appearance.
Yes, there are odours, but we minimize by using an exhaust fan to quickly dissipate the odours.
Bathtubs, Vanities, Showers, Ceramic Tiles, Bench-tops, Kitchen Cabinets, Metal, Plastic and Laminated Surfaces.
Because the grout is porous it absorbs everything and eventually grows mould, discolours and looks dirty. After refinishing, the grout wili be sealed by the new coating. It will still retain the look of grout but because it is sealed it will no longer hold dirt, it will wipe clean with a mild liquid cleaner.
As with all porcelain, laminated and enamel type surfaces, you should use only liquid cleaners that do not contain abrasives, bleach or chlorine.
Small chips and cracks can usually be repaired during the preparation stage of the refinishing process. Often if it is a single chip we can fill and refinish just the damaged area. With careful matching the repaired chip will be practically invisible.
A bathtub or bench top can be completed in just 4-5 hours. A full bathroom can normally be completed in 1 to 1½ days. A full kitchen job will take 4 – 5 days.
The refinished surface is normally ready for use in 24 hours – 48 hours.
Prices vary depending on the condition of the surface, but refinishing will always be a fraction of what replacement will cost.
Very little. In fact, when compared to the inconvenience of tearing out plumbing, ripping up floors and demolishing walls, the inconvenience is almost non existent.
We offer a five year guarantee against peeling or failure of adhesion for bathtubs, vanity basins and wall tiles. Sinks, bench tops, cabinets and chip repairs are guaranteed for a period of three years.
- We use only high quality Hawk Resurfacing coatings, which have been purpose designed for their intended use. We also use a proprietary chemical bonding agent, which unfailingly “welds” the coating to the old surface.
- Hawk Research Laboratories have been manufacturing coatings for over 30 years.
- Our fully cross linked coatings resuit in a hard tile like finish permanently fused to the old surface which actually resists stains and acid better than the original surface.
- WE CARE!
