We offer more services

The best refinishing franchise can provide solutions for any customer and budget. No other bathtub refinishing franchise offers as many services as we do. Some may also offer a few repairs, but typically they will refinish an entire surface for a small chip because they cannot blend the repair in.

There simply are not any other bathtub refinishing franchises who can do everything we can do under one franchise brand. You would need to purchase several different franchises to match our service offering.

  • Repair & Refinishing
  • Acrylic Tub, Shower & Wall Liners
  • Tub to Shower Conversions
  • Whirlpool Jet Installation
  • Plumbing Mechanical Repairs
  • Glass Scratch Removal
  • Vinyl Window Repairs
  • Fiberglass Step Repairs
  • Spa & Hot Tub Repairs
  • Door Sill Overlays
  • Grout Colorant
  • Real Marble & Granite Repairs

Decades of Field and Office Experience

The best refinishing franchise knows what they are doing. Our support team is more than experienced business professionals; we are experienced in THIS business. Though Dan Kaplan brought years of construction industry experience with him that helped when he purchased his first Surface Specialists franchise, that was years ago. He has been in the Bathtub Refinishing industry since 1989. He grew his first franchise to be the first to exceed $1 Million in sales before becoming the franchisor. He knows what it takes to start a successful bathtub refinishing franchise and how to develop it.

Think that was so long ago he can't possibly know what it's like to start one in the current economic climate? Not true. In 2011, he co-founded and continues to operate the Columbia, SC franchise which has repeatedly been recognized among the top Surface Specialists franchises for sales growth. Keeping his thumb on the heartbeat of the industry greatly enhances his abilities to help current and new franchisees.
