What is the Miracle Method?

The company behind Miracle Method states that it can refinish all of the kitchen and bathroom fixtures. This should allow them to sparkle again like they did when they were brand new.

Regardless of whether you want to repair structural damage like cracked or broken porcelain or fiberglass, or replace outdated colors for a more modern look, Miracle Method will be able to transform the room for a fraction of what other companies would charge for a full remodeling job.

This company will simply “refinish”, as they don’t do any type of carpentry work, paint, or drywall. Miracle Method locations are locally owned and franchised. All of them are able to provide estimates as long as you live inside the designated local zone of the company.

The company will use its own proprietary non-acid bathroom tub refinishing process during the restoration process, which they guarantee will restore any surface you need. A two-step cleaning process will be the first step, in which the specialist will remove any stains, body oils, mineral deposits, and/or soap scum.

This will be followed by the repair of any visible cracks and/or chips, but only after the cleaning is completed. As a third step, the company professionals will use its proprietary bonding agent called MM4 to ensure a strong bond between the new finish that is applied and the older surface.

The last step involves the contractor using a fine-finish spray with which they will apply the acrylic coating. You can see some of the finished jobs on Miracle Method’s official photo gallery.

According to company officials, the refinishing method they use will last up to 15 years and in some circumstances even more, as long as you understand that you will have to follow all of the recommended guidelines and employ proper care.
