Can you fix holes or cracks in a fiberglass tub?
Yes we can. Minor holes are usually fixed by filling them with a special filler designed for submersible applications. With larger holes or cracks, we use a two-part epoxy glue to attach a new piece of material to the damaged surface. After making the repair many people choose to refinish the entire unit for a uniform color but it is not an absolute necessity.

I have a fiberglass tub with an eight-inch crack that opens when I step into the tub. Can this be repaired without resurfacing the whole tub?
Fiberglass tubs and shower pans often crack because they have been reinforced with press board which deteriorates over time if it gets wet. This can be repaired by grinding out the crack, digging out the soggy particle board under the tub and replacing it with a special cement to add permanent reinforcement to the weak bottom. Then strips of fiberglass and resin are laid over the repaired area and a color matching fiberglass topcoat is applied which leaves an invisible, permanent repair.
I have a fiberglass shower which is ugly and impossible to clean. Is there an economical way to improve the look without having to totally replace it?
You are probably too clean for your shower’s good! Most fiberglass showers and tubs are coated with gelcoat. This material scratches easily when scrubbed with abrasive cleansers. It is recommended that the surface be completely refinished with a new coating to give it the appearance and durability of a better-than-new fiberglass shower. Then to maintain the shiny luster, you may want to wax the walls about once a month with a liquid automobile wax to help prevent water spotting. Leave the abrasive cleansing powder at your mother’s house and use a NON-abrasive liquid cleaner with “scrubbing bubbles” or other mild detergent.
