Bathroom ResurfacingBathroom Refinishing



An Australia-wide network of independent bathroom resurfacers have been accredited to use Worldwide Refinishing Systems resurfacing methods and materials to deliver beautiful bathroom makeovers.

The following price suggestions assume average wear and tear and do not include impact or rust damage repair.  A bathroom refinisher is able to provide quotes based on bathroom photos of sufficient resolution, but such quotes will always be subject to site inspection prior to commencement. 


Resurfacing is a very convenient and relatively inexpensive way of achieving a complete bathroom refresh without the cost and disruption associated with replacement.

A complete bathroom resurface will usually take between 3 and 4 days depending on the scope of work and will usually cost between $2,500 and $4,000 including 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.

Note:  Colour Matching - depending on colour choices, there may be an additional charge in the range $70 to $90 including gst for this service.

Individual Fixtures

Individual fixtures can be resurfaced on their own or in any combination of fixtures i.e. bath, basin, wall tiles, shower tray. However, the price for an individual fixture will be more than when completed as part of a bathroom makeover because it has to absorb the costs relating to travel, room preparation etc.


Usually cost between $700 and $850 including 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 and some rust.


When completed on site at the same time as a bath, basins and vanity tops will usually cost between $450 and $550 including gst. Smaller wall-hung or drop-in basins may cost less, around $250-$350 including gst. Price is subject to inspection, as there can be repair issues which cost extra.

Wall Tiles

There 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.

Surface Repairs

Chips and other damage to baths, basins and shower trays can be repaired sufficiently to improve appearances and delay the onset of rust in the exposed substrate. However, a chip repair is not a permanent solution and warranties are not usually provided. Time to complete a repair will vary between 1 and 2 hours, costing between $250 and $300 including gst. This charge includes travel time to and from base to the job location.

Clawfoot Bath & Pedestal Basin Restoration*

Original claw-foot baths are sought after by many homeowners seeking to return to the timeless style and beauty of a heritage bathroom.

CLAWFOOT BATHS - Resurfacing an old clawfoot tub in poor condition currently costs between $2,000 and $3,000 (incl gst) depending on the extent of repairs required. Claw feet are usually refinished in the same colour as the external surface of the tub, although more exotic finishes are available in some locations at higher cost.

Previously restored clawfoot baths eventually need to be resurfaced after say, 10 to 20 years depending on wear and tear and adherence to recommended cleaning regimes. Resurfacing in-situ in the bathroom is rarely practicable due to space limitations, so the workshop pricing above is likely to apply. 

PEDESTAL BASINS - The cost of restoring a cast iron pedestal basin is dependant on its condition. If it is workshop restored at the same time as a clawfoot tub, the cost will usually be between $750 and $950 including gst but excluding plumbing fittings and transport to and from the workshop.  If the basin of a previously resurfaced pedestal basin needs to be stripped and resurfaced due to impact damage, this can be done insitu for between $600 and $750 including GST.

Bathroom Safety

Resurfaced baths and shower floors can be slippery when wet, giving rise to the risk of slip-fall injury. If required, anti-slip patterns can be built into the new surface during the resurfacing process.
