Fiberglass tub repair, do it yourself. Fiberglass tubs are extremely common in most homes due to their durability, cost, and attractiveness. They are actually relatively hard to damage, as well – all those shampoo bottles hitting the floor won’t exactly do much harm. However, there are occasions when a fiberglass tub can get a hairline crack, or even a hole, depending on what kind of damage has been done. Instead of calling out a repairman, or worse, purchasing a new tub, there are ways to repair these problems yourself. In fact, there are even helpful kits that can help you ‘DIY’ when it comes to fiberglass tub repairs. Here are a few quick steps you can try if you experience any damage to your tub.

Purchase a Repair Kit

Repair kits for fiberglass tubs are extremely common, and can be purchased at your local hardware store. If the crack or hole in your tub is more than 1-inch deep, consider buying some fiberglass cloth as well, to fill it in. If it’s not a big crack, you won’t need to worry about that, and the repair kit alone will do the job very nicely!

Use the Kit As Directed

Your kit will likely come with several important steps, which will involve quite a bit of mixing. The first part will consist of a polyester-type substance, which will essentially be your ‘glue’ for the crack/hole. Most of these kits will come with different colors you can add to this substance so the color of the repair will perfectly match up with the color of your tub. That way, no one will ever know the problem was even there in the first place! Find the color that goes with your tub; mix it with the polyester substance.

Most kits will also include a thickening agent that makes the substance easy to spread, and a hardener, so it will harden quickly, and you’ll be able to use your tub again in no time at all. Mix the thickening agent and hardening agent in with the polyester as directed on your kit’s instructions, and you’re ready to get to work!

All it takes is a thin layer of this mixture to cover up most small cracks and holes, but you’ll quickly be able to see how much you’ll need to fix the problem. The most important thing you can do when you get to this point is be consistent. Try to keep the substance smoothed out as much as possible, and even, so it will not dry with any bumps, or higher in one spot than another, etc.

Once the substance is dry, you can sand it smooth with fine-grade sandpaper, and use the buffering agent that also typically comes with these DIY repair kits to smooth over the area, shine and polish it, and make it look as though the damage was never even there in the first place. When it comes to fiberglass tub repair, don’t call someone to charge you an arm and a leg, get your hands dirty, and don’t be afraid to ‘DIY!’
