How much to refinish a jetted tub?

We have a large fiberglass jetted tub in our master bedroom that has faded from sun thru the window facing the tub. What would it cost to refinish it?

This is actually easier than refinishing an enamel or porcelain tub - but finding a pro to do it might be toughter. I would check with with local hot tub vendors who do repairs - if that strikes out, some boat and auto repair companies who do fiberglass repairs will also do this type of work. That is where I have had to go in the past several times, particularly in smaller communities without a significant hot tub distributor.

In most cases like this there is no actual damage to the tub, so all it takes is a uniform but light sanding to provide bonding surface, then application of a color gel coat (fiberglass resin without reinforcing fabric) to resurface the tub - using an ultraviolet resistant resin this time.

Might also be an idea to put some blinds on the window, as your wall paint and flooring is probably fading as well. Or at least a breathable cover over the tub when not in use to protect it.

Sorry - I happened to come back to this question as a possible reference for another questioner, and noticed I failed to provide any sort of ballpark $ - may be too late, but if not - typically about $600-1000 ranger for a fiberglass gel coat refinish, or for a gloss acrylic urethane finish typically in the $500-600 range for a normal 5' tub size - prorate up from there based on your seize.
