Re-coating by a specialist
Many companies offer a new coating of shower trays, bathtubs or sinks. Different coating materials are used:
Plastic coating based on epoxy resin as a hot coating
- Coating based on ceramics
- Coating with car paints or similar materials
- Plastic-based hot coatings have the highest material thickness and are very durable. In the case of the ceramic coating, the coating material bonds firmly to the substrate and is completely durable. For coatings with other materials, the durability and quality of the coating depends on the particular material.
Costs for new coatings by a specialist
The costs for new coatings depend on the area to be coated and the prices of the respective executing company. If the coating happens in the course of a bath renovation, one can certainly consider having all ceramic surfaces coated at once - that's usually worth it.
The coating of plastic bathtubs or shower trays can cost anywhere between 400 and 500 euros (including all necessary work and renewal of silicone grouting) - so you have to expect considerable costs.

- 1. Preparation

Repair any damage (scratches, cracks, spalling). There are special repair materials in most sets.
3. Apply lacquer
Mix components and apply with the roller. Corners and edges can be painted with a brush. Here you have to work very carefully and cleanly. After a certain specified time, a second coat of paint can be applied (usually around 1 hour waiting time). Let it harden.
