Chip Repair


Oahu Tub Experts is the only company in the Honolulu area that delivers top notch chip repair services to contractors. If your company has damaged a client’s tub, we can make it look like new for a fraction of the cost of removal and replacement. If you are a home owner, scroll down to the next section.

The bulk of our chip repair business is for contractors. Typically a new bathtub is installed – usually a cheap steel tub with a thin porcelain coating – then subsequently damaged by a careless worker during other phases of construction. When these fixtures are in otherwise good condition, it makes sense to perform a bathtub or chip repair. This kind of bathtub repair can be performed right where it is – quickly and relatively inexpensively.

Don’t worry. Typically we can make it look 95% new. If the homeowner or client doesn’t know about the chip, they likely never will know. Our chip repair service can be successfully performed on all types or tubs and fixtures constructed of porcelain, fiberglass, and acrylic.

Chip repair is like a mini tub refinishing job, only the coating has to be laboriously matched (we’ve matched over 20 different shades of white), and a return visit is often necessary to buff the repaired area. Our professional chip repairs utilizing our highest quality coatings are made to last a long time. Our experienced team of professional and courteous repair technicians can be depended upon to meet your schedule and complete all repairs to your satisfaction and are guaranteed.

Chip Repair for Home Owners

Although the bulk of our chip repair business is for contractors, we do have affordable solutions for home owners. A professional chip repair job typically takes just as long as a full bathtub refinish for two reasons: It can take more than a hour to match the color (no, not all whites are the same) and we must wait until the coating is dry before we can buff it (2 hours). If we can minimize the color match time and eliminate the buffing time, we can fix chips quickly at a much lower cost, but still deliver a very high quality repair. With contractors we usually need to get a near perfect result (we aim for 95%). If we can lower that number to 80-85%, we can cut the price in half. Call us for a free estimate – (808) 554-1570
