Bathtub Refinishing - Lead Exposure from Bathtubs

Lead Poisoning... Are You or your Child at Risk?

Lead has long been known to present a health hazard in our homes. As of the mid ‘90s lead has also been found in various levels on porcelain fixtures, including bathtubs.

Lead containing glazes have been used in the production of porcelain fixtures for decades. Some bathtubs show alarming levels of lead leaching, particularly those with worn surfaces. Lead Testing Kits are available to determine if you have this problem in your home.

Because our refinishing coatings are lead free, bathtub refinishing with Beautiful Finishes will effectively encapsulate the old porcelain and restore the surface to a glossy new finish, providing home owners with a safe, easy, and inexpensive alternative to expensive replacement. Use this Refinishing checklist to compare other refinishing companies & different coating systems before you make your decision.
