Used in top luxury hotels world wide, The Arc shower bar is the best curved shower bar on the market. It creates 8 inches of extra on-demand elbow-room, and up to 30% more space in the shower. When not in use, you can simply slide your shower curtain to the side, and no space is wasted inside your bathroom.
The Arc is a design statement with its flat brushed aluminum finish and minimalistic yet functional construction. If you are selling or renting a home, it is something that prospective buyers/renters will notice immediately and will pay for itself many times over.
It will work with all types of shower curtains, hooks, and liners. For an incredible match, check out our line of No-Hook shower curtains, which we also carry, and complement The Arc’s graceful styling.
The Arc (Including Installation) – $199
Apply a $100 discount if we install The Arc at the same time as we refinish your bathtub — $99
Wall cover plates (Including Installation) – $29
Wall cover plates cover holes in your walls from your existing shower rod. If you have a compression rod (no screws), you probably do not need this. This is also not necessary if we will be refinishing your walls. These custom designed wall plates are specifically designed to complement the look, design and finish of The Arc.
Refinishing vs. Restoration
There’s a lot of confusion in the marketplace between traditional “refinishing” and the so called “eco” or “no-spray” refinishing. The later isn’t refinishing at all, but rather a “restoration”. Companies that solely offer tub restoration, tout their “lifetime warranty against peeling”. They can make this claim, because there is no new finish on the tub. Its a bit disingenuous in our opinion. Let’s be realistic and unbiased. And we can do this because we offer both services. There are good candidates for restoring, and there are bad candidates for restoring. Since restoration is basically a good, industrial cleaning of the tub, followed by the technician hand wiping a polymer sealant, a tub that is already in awful shape probably should just be refinished. On the other hand, a relatively new tub that is just dirty, but has the factory enamel still intact is a fantastic candidate for restoration, and we would encourage it because there’s no sense refinishing a tub that doesn’t really need it. There’s pros and cons to everything, and if a company tries to tell you different, they are probably lying. So to sum up the pros and cons of restoration:
- No odor and only mild chemicals used (although our new water-based coating doesn’t have odor either)
- You can use the fixture immediately (although our 2-hour coating is nearly as fast)
- No peeling to worry about
- Generally more affordable than refinishing
- Can’t change the color of the fixture
- Low shine, as opposed to a nice glossy new-looking shine with refinishing
- Any imperfections that can’t be removed will show through
- Owner must reapply polymer sealer every 3-6 months
Bathtub After Refinishing
Refinishing brings this bathroom back to life saving the owner thousands of dollars. The average price of replacing a bathtub in Honolulu ranges between $2400 – $2800 and takes three tradesmen 15-25 hours of total time. You will be without your tub for between 5-10 days. With our refinishing service, you will typically save over 80% off the cost of replacement, and your tub will be ready for use the same day!
Bathtub Before Refinishing
Here’s an old worn tub and tile before we refinished it. We offer several options including a rapid 2-hour cure product, a super-tough commercial-grade coating, and a no-spray bathtub restoration surface. We are the only bathtub refinishing company in Hawaii that gives you choice, because we recognize that every bathtub and every situation is different.
