I am actually going through this myself. At Home Depot I found a product called "Magic ReNew Tub and Tile Refinishing Kit". I found it on an endcap near the paint department...maybe $28. Anyhow, it comes with a "cold" can and a "hot" can. They are spraypaint can-like. You put one in the fridge to get it cold and then put the other in hot water to get it hot. Then you turn one into the other to mix the products. Once the one now-full can gets to room temperature you are good to go. If you can spraypaint, you can do this. Make sure you cover EVERYTHING else in the bathroom (I forgot to cover the floor). In the event that you get it on the floor or other item, a fine grade steel wool rubbed lightly on it will loosen it so you can sweep it up and clean it up with a mop or a rag.
Absolutely! Lowe's sells a great primer in their paint department. The most important step is the surface prep. Clean your shower surround with the recommended cleaner (I believe it was called TLX, also at Lowes). You then use a two part epoxy paint that is made just for this job. Good luck and enjoy your upgraded shower!

If your tub /shower has a caulked seam, Permaglaze, even done by dealer will crack and peel in 9 months. Beware, they paint over the caulk and it expands and contracts often causing peeling on the surface.

I had my shower repainted by Permaglaze 12 months ago. At nine months it stated peeling/cracking at the seam of two pieces of the shower. I questioned painting over caulk as opposed to caulking after painting.That is what we do was the reply. Now, what kind of paint do I use to sand, clean and repair the peeling. Should I caulk after painting as opposed to before?
I would think you would have at least a 1-year warranty for this. Check your warranty and contact the company before you touch this shower. If you repair now, you may void the warranty.
I agree with Judy, this should not have started to come apart so quickly. You should hold the company responsible to a standard of quality. They need to address this issue.
Yes, what Judy said. Call the company back.
You really need to look over your contract to see how long your actual warranty is and if other things were done there may be different time periods listed.
Your local Permaglaze company is a franchise but hopefully they will stand behind the quality of work they do and even if the warranty time has passed they should repair this type of damage.
If they do not help you, then I would suggest you contact the parent company and tell them your story along with photographs and also state what your local dealer told you - or did.
Here is a way to contact the parent company:
Can you paint shower surround walls? I want to do a major bathroom redo in a few years, but just want to get the tub reglazed for now. I need to do something about the walls, the finish is coming off the fiberglass and they just look gross. Can you help?
If this is a piece not attached to the tub, why not replace it?
Go to a boat shop or marina where they sell marine paint. It covers fiberglass and is waterproof. Clean the fiberglass well before painting.
