Frequently Asked Questions & Testimonials
How long can I expect a resurfaced area to last?
With proper care and maintenance, an average life span of a resurfaced area would be 10-12 years, in many cases longer.
How do you properly care for a resurfaced area?
Never clean with any gritty cleaner (Ajax, Soft Scrub, Comet, Etc.) any house hold cleaner would be fine. Do not use any abrasive pads or scratch pads. Wet sponge or hand towels are perfect. Bath mats in a refinished (or original) tub will cause a chemical reaction over time eating through the finish. Do not bathe pets in a refinished tub or shower. Claws can put scratches in the finish.
How long does a typical job take?
Most jobs will be able to be completed in just one day. If there are multiple surfaces to be refinished, the job could extend to a second day. Floors could take up to two day, depending on the size and type of finish desired.
How long does the surface need to dry after done?
36hrs for light use on a Kitchen countertop or vanity top. 48 hours for tubs/shower and floors and 48 hours for normal use on countertops as well.
Does the lower cost mean I'm sacrificing quality?
NO! Our materials are highly industrial and are not available to the public. In most cases you will be receiving a higher quality finished product! We back this up with our 5yr warranty! How many places that sell or install countertops offer anything close to that?
Will I need to be out of the house when the work is being completed?
Because of the industrial properties of the materials, there is an odor. Our technicians wear respirators while spraying all finishes. Every step is taken to ventilate the vapors out of the house, through open windows, doors, fans, etc. Most people are home while the work is going on, in another room. In very rare cases, for those very sensitive to smells an overnight arrangement outside the home has been made. The smell dissipates very quickly once spraying is completed.
If something is damaged in a tub or on a countertop, can it still be resurfaced?
YES! if the damage is just cosmetic, meaning it is not a result of a structural issue, those can be repaired and resurfaced and no one would ever know it had been fixed!
NO, if the damage is structural. Meaning, if something underneath or behind a tub has caused the cracking or buckling due to lack of proper support, those problems need to be addressed in a different way before resurfacing can take place.
What is the furthest distance we go to contract work?
Anything outside knox county, there is a $35 trip fee. Anything outside of an hour radius of Knoxville TN, the price is subject to the distance of customer needing work completed.
What type surfaces does your material cover?
Wood, fiberglass, metal, laminate, ceramic, porcelain, cast iron and more!
What is the material made of that is used in this process?
Epoxy, tinted to color of choice and a Gel coat product for all top coats. Epoxy is an industrial adhesive, it will grab hold of any surface and give a strong base to apply any type finish on top. Gel coat is just as industrial! It is used on automobiles, boats, aircraft as their top coats for weather, water and dirt protection.

I could not be more thrilled with the resurfacing that Jesse (Resurfacing Solutions) did for us. Our house was built in 1986 and was still in its original state with country blue countertops. We looked into total countertop replacement in the kitchen and it was going to be OVER TWICE AS MUCH as resurfacing. Jesse (Resurfacing Solutions) came in and added a bar top to the kitchen island and resurfaced the entire custom kitchen and 2 bathroom sinks…… again….. for less half the total redo. Jesse’s (Resurfacing Solution’s) professionalism and work ethic are top-notch. He made sure everything was done as if it was for his own house. The look of our kitchen and bathrooms are totally transformed now….. everyone that has seen it loves it. Its beautiful, durable and just amazing. I’m thrilled with the loos of my new kitchen. We will defiantly call Jesse (Resurfacing Solutions) when we need anymore work completed.
Amazing job by Jesse! Could not be more pleased with the finished project and Jesse is awesome to work with! Thank you!!

Resurfacing Solutions resurfaced our bathroom vanities to look new. After 15 years, they seem like new tops. I was very impressed with the finished product and how quickly they were completed. I would highly recommend Resurfacing Solutions for updates to your home!
Thank you so much for the incredible job you did on my bathroom. The change is amazing! I’m so thankful I saw your website and called you. It was such a pleasure doing business with you. I have recommended you to all of my friends and co-workers!
Jesse is one of the most professional contractors I have ever worked with. I had 2 bathroom sinks, fireplace tile, and jetted tub tile resurfaced. They look great and the cost was less than half of what it would have cost to replace them. He also built a new mantle which also looks terrific.
We love the outcome of our master bathroom sinks and countertop after having it resurfaced by Resurfacing Solutions. It not only updated the look of our sinks but the whole bathroom. The process was quick, clean and saved us a lot of money.
