6 Common Resurfacing Questions Answered

What does resurfacing or re-enamelling tiles mean?

Tile resurfacing is also known as re-enamelling and reglazing. Bathroom Werx in Australia most commonly refers to it as resurfacing and re-enamelling.

How does resurfacing or re-enamelling work?

Resurfacing or re-enamelling tiles follows the following steps:

  1. Your tiles and grout get entirely cleaned of mould, mildew.

  2. All chips and cracks in your tiles get repaired

  3. New grout is then used to fill gaps where necessary

  4. Your bathroom is chemically treated and sterilised, ready for a new glaze.

  5. The Werx Enamel is applied over your newly treated tiles, leaving them looking brand new.

Bathroom Werx's WERX Enamel can be mixed to any colour, meaning we can match existing fixtures in your bathroom or create a completely new feel.

Many Australians choose to resurface their bathrooms instead of completely renovating to save on substantial costs like:

  • Destruction and disposal of old tiles

  • The cost of purchasing the new tiles

  • Delivery and installation of new tiles, plus cleaning and finalising.

Additionally, when retiling your bathroom, you might not be able to use it for several days or even weeks.

Resurfacing tiles avoids the costs and hassles of a typical bathroom or kitchen renovation.
