Oahu Tub Experts is helping landlords, realtors, and home sellers get more money. – CALL 808-554-1570
Oahu Tub Experts is the only Honolulu refinishing company that specializes in helping landlords and Realtors get the best yield on their investment dollars, with less headache and faster time-to-market. We support the needs of your commercial property with services that could help you increase rents by $50-$150 per month.
We also know that every day your unit sits vacant costs you and/or your client money. We are fast and committed to getting the job done — usually our turnaround for Realtors and landlords is 48 hours. We work weekends if we need to, at no extra cost to you.
Unlike other refinishers, commercial clients are our bread and butter, and we have developed solutions and processes exclusively for this demanding market. Vacant units are our specialty. When you are between tenants, you have the time to go with our exclusive commercial coating which is far more durable than any traditional Urethane coating offered by anyone else on Oahu. This coating is rated for 24/7 water immersion and is used in large water parks, public swimming pools, and spas. Marriott International recently mandated the use of this coating in every Marriott hotel worldwide when bathtubs need to be refinished. Minimum cure time is 16 hours. We recommend a 2-3 day cure time to achieve maximum durability. We can offer an industry-leading 5 year adhesion warranty with this coating.
If you need a quicker cure time, we can use our premium residential coating, which is “shower ready within 2-3 hours”.
Our services go beyond repair and resurfacing of bathroom and kitchen fixtures. Our advise has helped hundreds of investors get more money for their property. We may be a refinishing company, but our expertise doesn’t end there, and we aren’t biased towards refinishing if it is in our client’s interest to go in a different direction.
Fact: Homes & apartments with a clean, modern kitchens and baths, rent or sell faster and for more money!
It’s a sluggish market for rentals and home sales right now, but buyers and renters still want new looking finishes. “Curb appeal” extends to the inside of the home, and especially into the kitchen and bathrooms. All other things being equal (such as size and location) chances are most renters/buyers will select the unit with the nicer looking bathroom and kitchen. Remember, first impressions are huge.
Attract higher quality renters
If your investment unit is clean to begin with, you will automatically attract higher quality renters who are more likely to be clean, responsible, and take care of your investment.
Refinishing is the single highest ROI improvement you can do for your property, with the added benefit of cost certainty. No matter how hard you clean, some stains will not come out. And a worn tub will never look new. For many buyers this will simply be a deal killer. Especially if alternative properties are available that have new looking tubs. Why risk it? For about 15% of the price of bathtub replacement, we can make the most important room in the house look clean and modern.
Time to market
Additionally, the huge time savings of refinishing will also allow to get your property on the market much faster, with the least time involvement on your part because you don’t need to deal with multiple contractors. In addition to refinishing the bathtub, we can also:
- Refinish the bathtub tile surround
- Install a trim kit so the drain and overflow are shiny and new
- Install a modern curved shower rod – It will pay huge dividends, we promise!
- Refinish Formica, cultured marble, or Corian countertops
We will make your property look and feel new for a fraction of the cost of replacement.

Besides refinishing your bathtub, the tile surround, and possibly counter tops, what else can you do to increase the value of your investment property, or maximize your sale price?
That’s where we come in. From little things like replacing cabinet and drawer pulls, to advising which fixtures to update, we can help. Work we don’t do, we can point you in the direction of someone who is reliable, honest, and fair. We like to work with small family owned companies because they have less overhead and often take more pride in their work. Our objective is to advise you on what is best for you, in your particular circumstance. We turn down extra work all the time because it is not in our client’s best interest. For example, replacing a small bathroom vanity counter top with granite usually makes more sense than refinishing. We firmly believe that a happy customer is a repeat customer who will refer their friends and family. You will always get honest advise from us.
Scheduled Tub Maintenance – Ideal For Landlords
We have an ongoing service agreement for rental properties that works with either refinished or restored bathtubs. It works like this:
- Prior to renting the unit, we will restore or refinish the fixture.
- We will photograph the tub for your records, and for the tenant’s reference.
- We will provide you with two copies of our easy care instructions. One for the tenant to sign, and one for your records.
- Upon move out, we will inspect the bathtub or shower at no cost. If work needs to be performed we will provide you a written estimate, and you can pass those costs on to your tenant if you should so desire. We usually recommend clients opt for our affordable tub detailing package before signing a new tenant. Like a car needs to be polished and waxed every so often, so does a tub. Our tub detail package includes thorough cleaning of the tub, polishing to eliminate unavoidable light surface scratches, and a special coating that will bring out a deep glossy shine.
