Resurfacing or refinishing Antique Sinks.


    If you are lucky enough to have a period sink in your home, you may have noticed that there is crazing in the glaze of the porcelain, especially where there are little depressions built into the sink to take bars of soap. Although this crazing does not seem to affect the integrity or strength of the sink, it can be unsightly and the crazed areas are often quite dirty looking, even when they've been thoroughly cleaned.

    At The Bath Business we can resurface or re enamel your period sink without removal. After resurfacing, your sink will have lost the crazing in its surface and it will now be very easy to clean. We can also resurface the sink pedestal too if there is one.

    Many antique or period sinks also have cracks in them, quite in addition to any crazing. The crazing is just in the glaze of the sink, and is made up of lots of very short little lines, usually about the width of a finger nail or less.

    A crack, on the other hand, has gone through the porcelain itself. It will tend to look like a line across the sink and can be inches long. Sometime there can be several lines radiating out from a single point.

    We can resurface a sink with a crack in it, as long as the crack itself is stable and not still growing. If you are unsure whether or not it has stabilized out, then the best option is probably to put off resurfacing it for a while and just observe the sink over a period of time, looking to see if the crack gets any bigger.

     If the sink has a chip or two we can also repair that. If the damage is extensive it is easier to resurface the whole sink rather than try and patch it up.
