Markey PermaGlaze is now
Markey Restoration and Repair.
Can my existing fixtures be cleaned or polished to restore the shine they've lost?
If your fixture is made of fiberglass, acrylic, or cultured marble, it can - in some cases - be
polished. If normal household cleaners fail to bring back the shine, your finish has most likely been damaged or worn and has probably become pitted and porous. The more you scrub, the worse it will be.
How much does it cost to replace an average tub?
The cost can vary, depending on the quality of the replacement fixture and the amount of work and damage done to existing plumbing, tile and plaster; usually $1,500 to $3,000.
When I have a fixture PermaGlazed, does it require special care or cleaning materials?
The new PermaGlazeŽ finish should be cleaned with a non-abrasive cleaner just as you would with a new fixture or
tile. Abrasives are capable of damaging even the most durable surfaces.
Can a single chip in my fixture be repaired?
It can be completely blended into the surface.
PermaGlazeŽ real porcelain?
No, it is a state-of-the-art synthetic glaze which has the luster and texture of porcelain with unbelievable durability and toughness.
How long does it take to PermaGlazeŽ a fixture, tile or appliance?
Usually a few hours and always less than one day. Most of the time is spent in preparing the original surface for reglazing.
When the PermaGlazeŽ has been applied, there is only a 48 hour "curing" time required before the fixture can be used. (Accelerated curing time is, in some cases, available).
What should I do to prepare the fixture for the
Repair or replace any plumbing problems (leaking faucets, broken handles, pipes) and remove any hardware such as shower doors and tracks which are directly connected to the tub or sink.
Will PermaGlazeŽ refinishing cause any damage or harm to my home or pets?
Definitely not! Any odors from chemicals we use are exhausted by window or fan and gone within a few hours.
