In 1971, nestled in the hard working town of Indianapolis Indiana, Eastern Refinishing Inc. was founded. In the early years, while our company was developing, the bathtub refinishing, reglazing, resurfacing industry was in its infancy.
Back then, there were no official training schools to learn our trade and there were no official vendors or suppliers who were developing products for our industry; as such, the need for Eastern Refinishing to develop its own techniques was necessary.
Throughout the 1980's the bathtub refinishing was primarily considered a "do it yourself" industry. Most applicators were regular household painters or handymen trying to satisfy their clients’ needs. That is, the need to refinish a fixture quickly, rather than replacing it. In fact, compared to the technology implemented today, bathtub refinishing in the 1980's used crude and primitive products and techniques. Most refinishers simply used an epoxy coating available at industrial paint stores, others used automotive or marine coatings.
The end result was inconsistent quality and rampant repairs. In almost all cases, the coatings used would yellow, stain, discolor and lose their gloss. There was no specialized HVLP spraying equipment for our industry, so most jobs were applied by brush or roller and looked "unprofessional". However as a pioneer in bathtub refinishing, Eastern Refinishing continued to search for and develop alternate means and products to improve the refinishing process. In fact, I can honestly say we have tried literally hundreds of products over the years. One advantage that Eastern Refinishing offers is that we test all our products "in house", an industry first, thru the use of our Quality Control dept. which is managed by Levi Weppler. As such, you can be assured that we always use proven materials and techniques.
Eastern Refinishing today enjoys a reputation for providing the highest quality work and providing customer service that is second to none.
However, our work is not done, as Eastern Refinishing continues to strive to meet the demands and challenges of the 21st century. All Eastern Refinishing employees and technicians undergo a rigorous training program and schooling in the skill of professional refinishing. In addition to using skillfully trained personnel, we also implement the highest quality refinishing coatings and products. To achieve this, Eastern Refinishing has worked with the industry's leading manufacturer, Hawk Research Labs, Wood Dale, Illinois to develop a complete proprietary line of professional refinishing products. Utilizing our proprietary Acrylic urethane Coating System, Eastern Refinishing has taken longevity to new levels by being able to offer 5 year warranties on all our tubs. In fact, you can expect extended refinishing life span of between 10-12 years with proper care.
Categorically our competitors cannot offer performance characteristics as we do. Our refinishing systems are designed to deliver gloss and durability ratings exceeding automotive finishes by 20%. In addition, our coatings are highly chemical, solvent, and acid resistive and are UV stabilized, so they will not yellow, stain, or dull prematurely with use. For these reasons, you can count on Eastern Refinishing to provide the finest quality workmanship.
