Do Bath Repair Kits really work?

no 1

Prestige Bath Repairs tested the market leading bathware repair kits available online.

  • These kits are easily found throughout the web, they claim to include everything you need to repair chips, cracks, and other types of damage to your bathroom suite. When we looked at the contents of a typical product, this was not usually the case.

  • They may seem like a cheap, quick and easy solution, but these kits have major drawbacks. The process is long winded and messy, and the results will not be as durable or permanent as those completed by a specially trained professional. Bath repair kits cannot repair severe damage or large cracks that can affect the stability and structure of a bath, sink or shower tray.

  • Bath repair kits will not match the colour of your bath. Some manufacturers offer only two or three different types of white bath coating, which is simply not enough to colour match the thousands of shades of white needed in reality. Most importantly, if your suite is not treated with the correct product, shop bought kits could cause permanent damage.

  • If you still want to try and use a DIY bath repair kit then go for it. If it doesn’t work out you can still call Prestige to restore your suite safely, to the highest possible standard, with a minimum of fuss, hassle and mess.

Bath Chip Repair

Prestige professional technicians repairs versus DIY bath repair kits.


  • Bath repair kits will not repair large or deep cracks, you will have a repair that has a poor finish and won’t last.

  • The bonding/adhesive agent used is not usually strong enough to hold the new enamel on the surface for long periods of time.

  • A Prestige professional bath technician can precisely match both the finish and colour of your bath.

  • Our repairs will last for years as the repair will be carried out correctly.

  • If you're looking for a repair that will last for years, call a Prestige professional who will guarantee all repairs with our free 12 month warranty.

Bath Chip Repair

  • No bath repair kit offers customers guarantees, and if the repair kit fails, it will be your problem.

  • Repair kits only provide a few colours and shades of white. Usually, this is not the correct shade of white for your surface. 

  • Prestige professional bath refinishers will customise the precise colour and finish of your bath to match your resurfacing colour preferences.

  • Our Technicians have a vast array of colours and are able to match colours on-site using our expertise to match any colour, testing as we go.

  • You can choose from a variety of colours and finishes, including glossy, matt, and textured.

  • No discolouration over the duration of treatment. No mess, no hassle & cost effective.

  • Prestige will revitalise, repair and enhance your bath, sink or shower tray so it looks like new.

    Our typical Step-by-Step bath repair process.

    • Thoroughly inspect the damaged area and we decide the best way to repair your bath, sink or shower tray.

    • High quality adhesive which is applied over the damaged area. This will make the newly applied enamel firmly stick.

    • Fill the crack, hole or chip with a special filler for these fixtures.

    • Let the treated area dry and harden.

    • Sand the area and smooth it off until it’s of the same contour and blending with the required surface.

    • Mix and make up the enamel colour on the to match the unit. This stage takes patience, and we have perfected this process over years of experience. 

    • We use a our own adhesive agent again over the filler to create extra strength in bonding our new enamel surface.

    • Spray on the enamel coating with a domestic air-spray gun to vanish out the repair with the matched colour we created. 

    • Let the treated area dry and cure.

    • You can use the bath or shower tray the following day after 24 hours.

    Prestige undertook a full bath cleaning and restoration project as my bath had chips everywhere. Once they were finished I could not believe the results. A truly amazing transformation!

    I had a large chip in my shower tray and scratches in the sink, Prestige did a wonderful job re-enamelling both. They now both look like  new and feel silky smooth. I Would highly recommend them to everyone .
