There are many things to consider when you are planning your bathtub reglazing project. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
Methods Used to Prepare Bathtub Refinishing Cost Estimates
Since bathtub refinishing projects are straight forward, a fixed fee per tub approach is commonly used. The contractor will determine a flat rate depending on the type of material used and the extent of the damage. If your bathtub has large cracks or chips that need to be fixed, the contractor will likely provide you a quote to repair the tub and add that to the overall per tub cost.

Reasons for Cost to Reglaze Tub Variances
Bathtub refinishers use a combination of methods to evaluate and price projects. They take several factors into consideration that impact the cost of the project, including:
Materials. The type of material is the primary cost consideration. Fiberglass is more difficult to refinish than porcelain or cast iron, so it will cost more to reglaze.
Size of tub. If your tub is larger than a standard 5-foot tub, additional costs may be added to the cost of your reglazing project.
Condition of tub. If the tub has significant cracks or large chips, it will cost more to repair.
Reglazing method. Painting or spraying on the finish will be the most cost-effective method, while inlays and liners will be more expensive.
Geography. If you are in a high cost area or in an area that is difficult to reach (more travel time), then costs will generally be higher.
