What You Will Need

In order to repair a damaged bathtub, you will need the following items:

Step One: Assess the Damage

The first step in repairing a damaged bathtub is to assess the damage. This means taking a close look at the bathtub and determining what needs to be fixed.

The first step to repairing a damaged bathtub is to clean the area around the damage. This will allow you to see the full extent of the damage and determine what type of repair is necessary.

Step Three: Apply the Repair Kit

If your bathtub is made of porcelain, you can purchase a repair kit at your local hardware store. These kits usually come with epoxy or acrylic putty, which you will use to fill in the chips or cracks in your tub. Follow the instructions included with your kit to apply the repair material to the damaged area. Once it is dry, you can sand it down and paint over it to match the rest of your tub.

Step Four: Let it Dry

When the patch has set, it’s time to let the tub dry. This usually takes around 24 hours. Once the tub is dry, you can use it as normal.

Step Five: Clean Up

Once the patch has dried, clean up any excess caulk or sealant from around the patch. This will help ensure that the patch adheres properly and doesn’t leak.
