Today I had a bathtub refinishing project in Mesquite. I met a very nice lady that had a fiberglass bathtub that had become discolored over the years. The house was built in 1998 and fiberglass is bad about scratching and looking "dirty" I told her while I was there I could refinish the tile around the bathtub at no/ charge. There were some minor cracks in the grout between the tile and I told her it would seal the grout so it never mildews and also prevent water from getting behind the tile and damaging the wall. She was very appreciative and loved the finished result.
Bathtub refinishing Dallas sale prices are much lower than my everyday prices which you will find are less expensive then other professional's prices. Please keep in mind because this is so hard to prove because of the bait and switch tactics used by many in our Industry.
I see nothing wrong with charging between $500 - $600 for bathtub refinishing if it is accomplished correctly and if the business is upfront with the prices. I cringe when I see an advertisement for $300 (usually it is $299) only to then say they can bid the upon arrival to see if it needs any extra work. Then they name off several items that, to be very honest would be taken care of thru normal refinishing procedures. Please don't misunderstand me there are times when old coatings have to be removed and the old surface needs an hour of extra prep work before it can even be taped off. Under those conditions of course an additional charge is warranted. However, when the charge goes up because you have a nice home, live in a nice area, have a new boat or vehicle in the driveway.... That is unethical and to be honest cast a black cloud over our industry.

Bathtub Refinishing Dallas
I want to take a minute to address a problem I am seeing on a weekly basis. The Epoxy paint kits that have peeled away. I recently completed a bathtub refinishing job in Dallas and the resident told me they purchased 3 cans of the spray epoxy. They cleaned everything and used steel wool before applying the epoxy. They thought it would last a few years because the bathtub and tile was in a guest room that was rarely used.
They waited a full (7) days before using the bathtub after it was painted.
That was 6 months ago. It had been used 5 times according to the homeowner and started having problems from the very first time it was used. I was able to strip off the old paint, and apply the correct product using a synergistic procedure outlined <here>.
Bathtub refinishing has so much more to offer than what the name suggest. Not only can bathtub surfaces be restored and made new again but you will find that Tile, grout and standup showers can all be restored.
Unlike bathtub painting with Epoxy paint, bathtub refinishing is both scientific and synergistic in the approach to restoring Bathtub, Tile and shower surfaces.
The science behind bathtub, shower and tile surface restoration is actually remarkable. During the early 2000's an effort was made to develop a coating that could be professionally applied and able to withstand the abuse of different p.h. cleaners and bathing agents, hot water and cleaners used on a daily basis. The result was synthetic porcelain which is a nick name given to polyceramic glass glaze. It is a process that integrates the coating into the old surface and when correctly completed will look absolutely great and last for 20+ years which is the same lifespan as a new porcelain bathtub.
