Reline rather than reglaze for old tubsDear Glenn: I live in a 30- year-old home. I have a yellow bathroom with yellow tub, toilet and sink. I am redoing the countertop, sink and toilet to white. I have asked various people in the paint business and the contracting business about repainting or reglazing the tub. They have all said that the tub can be painted white, also. But no one knows who does the tub repainting. Do you have any suggestions about who does the painting?
