Update 7/28/2021 - Thank you for keeping small businesses going through these difficult times!
Updated: Under orders from Judge Clay Jenkins : Bathtub refinishing is considered elective remodeling and NOT essential infrastructure construction. Like a lot of business owners I went from staying booked weeks in advance to customers wanting to cancel Mid February 2020. I was taking on about 1 - 2 jobs per week thru the end of February. March was so dead I was ready to just shut down anyway and wait it out. Trying to survive from my savings and afraid to even order product or advertising not knowing when I would be deemed non essential. However, the updated mandate on March 30, 2020 made it clear and definitely not wanting to chance making other people sick or bringing a sickness into my home and around my elderly parents definitely makes this a very unprecedented time that caught all of us off guard.

Confusing Times In Deed
Our small businesses and economy will be trying to recover from this for years to come. It took me several years to recover from the 9-11-2001 attacks. It took me years to recover from the 2008 recession and this is looking to make that look small in comparison. May God Bless and heal us all!!
I'm looking back at some of the pages on my website and some of my blogs. I just noticed I had not updated several of them in two years! I see one that started out "Here we are Starting a new year in 2016" I actually remember setting at my parents house visiting them and writing that blog while my wife took my mother to get her hair done. I had no Idea it had been over 2 years ago! Dallas Bathtub Services Contact Information

Bathtub painting is sometimes what people mistakenly call bathtub refinishing. However, if you are talking about the epoxy d.i.y. paint kits then it really gets confusing because they call themselves bathtub refinishing kits but are simply epoxy paint. (LOL) I am literally laughing out loud trying to explain this because I feel like I'm doing the old Abbott and Costello skit of Who's on first!
Yeah It's like that! Especially, when we throw in the terms of refinishing, reglazing, resurfacing then as I'm researching key terms for my website I find ones that i'm honestly not sure if they are legitimate words! Like reporcelain, What? What's on second! Okay so I also find repurpose which throws me for a loop because I thought when you repurpose something it would change what it was meant for. Example, If you own land, cattle and horses and use an old clawfoot bathtub for a water trough then you repurpose that tub. Who? No, who's on first!
Okay so then we have refurbish which does make sense I completely understand that one. Bathtub refacing okay I absolutely get that! In fact, That is exactly what it's all about!
Maybe an explanation would help of how these terms came to life.
Bathtub Painting - This would be because in the past even when I started in the refinishing business in 1992 we only had one choice to redo (another term!) a bathtub or tile and that was epoxy paint. It looked dull, the customer could not use bleach on it because it would yellow and it lasted about 6 months to a year depending on how often it was used. This was great for Apartments because a lease term was usually 6 mos. to a year and then they would turn the unit for the next customer.
Bathtub reglazing - because people did not know what to call it they would simply say my bathtub is not shiny, it is missing the glaze. (Which was the result of using comet or any abrasive cleaner and scratching up the surface.)
Bathtub Resurfacing, Bathtub Refinishing - These were brought about and made popular around 1999 because the bathtub refinishing Industry had made changes. There was a coating called synthetic porcelain made especially for bathtub and tile refinishing. So professional refinishers were trying to teach consumers that we no longer simply painted bathtubs with epoxy. This was complicated by the fact that some professionals refused to change coatings and still used epoxy and the d.i.y. kits started calling the kits tub and tile refinishing.
