An Australia-wide network of accredited bathroom resurfacing
contractors use Worldwide Refinishing Systems resurfacing materials and
methods to deliver beautiful bathroom makeovers and other cost-saving
bathroom renovation services.
Resurfacing is an inexpensive and convenient way of achieving
a complete change of appearance in the bathroom without the cost and
inconvenience of total replacement.
A complete bathroom resurface usually takes 2 to 3 days depending on the scope of work and will usually cost between $1,800 and $3,000 incl. gst depending on the size and condition of the bathroom. A site inspection by an applicator is required in order to provide recommendations and a firm cost.
Colour Matching - depending on colour
choices, there may be an additional charge in the range $50 to $60 per
hour, including gst, for this service.
Individual items can be resurfaced on their own, or any
combination of fixtures including wall tiles, floor tiles, basins,
vanities, spa baths, shower trays, shower floors, etc.
BathsUsually between $550 and $660 incl. gst, depending on condition and size. A small bath without chips, bad scratches or any other defect will cost less than an old, deep cast iron bathtub with rougher surfaces.
BasinsPedestal Basins and Vanity Tops (when completed on site at the same time as a bath) will usually cost between $330 and $495 incl. gst. Small wall-hung or drop-in basins (when completed on site at the same time as a bath) can cost less, around $150-$250 incl. gst. Price is subject to inspection, as there can be repair issues which cost extra.
Wall TilesThere isn't a fixed price per m2. The total cost of a tile project is determined by the amount of repair required to grout lines and tiles, the size of the area to be resurfaced and whether there are other fixtures to be resurfaced at the same time.
Chips and other damage to baths, basins and shower trays can
be repaired sufficiently to improve appearances and prevent further
rusting/leakage. However a chip repair is not a permanent solution!
Time to complete a repair will usually be between 1 and 2 hours,
costing between $150 and $250 inc. gst. This charge includes travel
time associated with the site location.
Claw-foot Bath Restoration*
Sometimes referred to as 'antique' or 'free-standing'
bathtubs, original claw-foot baths are much sought after by those
wishing to retain the 'heritage' look in their bathroom. Resurfacing a
paddock tub in poor condition will cost between $1,500 and $2,000 incl.
gst depending on size and condition. The feet will cost extra if
required in solid brass or with a baked epoxy 'metal' finish.

Baths, shower floors and bathroom floors can be very slippery
when wet, giving rise to the risk of slip-fall injury. Find out more
