Surface Specialists - Tub Repair and Refinishing Experts

How are we different from other restoration franchises?

Surface Specialists® is among the largest bathtub refinishing franchise providers of surface restoration services in North America. Since 1981, our bathroom remodeling franchisees have been providing real value to their clients, and enjoying huge opportunities for profitable growth.

Our primary difference from the competition is that our franchise locations are trained to provide bathtub refinishing and so much more! Most bathtub refinishing franchises only teach refinishing. Why would you want to put all your eggs in one basket?

Surface Specialists® trains our bathtub refinishing franchises how to complete a multitude of different bathroom remodeling services so you don't have to rely on only one service for your source of income. Some additional services include surface and structural repairs, acrylic bath liner installation and tub to shower conversions.

Franchisee Spotlight

As a franchisee of SSSI I have only one regret; not doing it sooner!

Looking at doing a Home Improvement franchise and after some research I came across Surface Specialists Systems and liked everything I saw and read about it. I had talked with several other franchise systems in the cost range and felt our Franchisor, Dan Kaplan, was very sincere and easy to talk with and the work sounded intriguing and interesting to me as well which was exactly what I was searching for. After a few phone conversations we arranged a meeting and after I spent half a day in the field with them, I knew it was the right move.

I have had a great experience in the three years I am operational and have found a great partner in Dan and the home office staff. They have provided great training foundation and continual encouragement with technical support and top-notch materials provided at very reasonable pricing. Dan works very hard to promote our franchises and is understanding a successful life is more than the sum of your annual earnings. He takes a very direct interest in our success and is very supportive with advice and is constantly proving/showing he really cares. I say in all honesty if you think you can handle the type of work we perform daily do not hesitate; you will be glad you did!
