Fixtures are often damaged during shipping, during installation, or sometimes as a result of a heavy or sharp object accidentally falling onto the surface. No natural stone is chip- or crack proof.
The good news is that bathtub repairs can be successfully performed on all types of porcelain tubs as well as tubs made of fiberglass, enameled, acrylic, cast iron and cultured marble.
The question now is "How much does it cost to fix a chip in a bathtub"?
Most bathtub chip repair will cost $195 to $300 and $25 per chip after that using epoxy products, and matching a custom tub color costs an additional $25.
If your bathtub has extensive damage beyond small chips, scuffs, and scratches, you may be considering a full reglazing.
HIMG® Surface Repair can give you the most effective, easy to use and non-epoxy alternative to do your own repair at home, and at less cost.

Can you fix a chip in a fiberglass tub? If you have a small chip in the surface of your tub, you can fix it yourself with Light Cure Acrylic Surface repair kits.
Can you fix a chip in a porcelain tub? The answer is yes. LCA™ kits can be used to fix scratches, chips, nicks dings, small holes, gouges and more.
