F.A.Q.

Here are some common questions about our services.

Getting Started

How is my price determined?

By a scheduled estimate with a sales representative. Each job is taken independently into consideration with a standard base pricing that will be discussed in person. It is of extreme importance we do not overlook any areas to ensure the quality and longevity.

Do you have samples of your work?

We currently do not have a showroom, however, we have sample cases with over 50 colors and 3 different finishes. Our estimates are free of charge. We also have a few locations with product displayed.

  • Baum’s Music Store 2908 Eubank Blvd. 87112
  • Sun’licious Tanning Salon 11200 Montgomery Blvd. Suite 15 87111
Are you licensed and insured?

Unique Stone Resurfacing™ division of Euro Painting, Inc. has all the state required business licenses as well as liability insurance and workers compensation insurance for employees.

What are the care instructions?

DO use only non-abrasive, liquid cleaners or mild soap and water. Your refinished surface can be easily wiped clean with a damp cloth or sponge and mild detergents or general purpose cleaners, such as Fantastik®, Formula 409®, Windex®, Glass Plus®, Mr. Clean® Top Job, Lysol® Disinfectant Foam, Pledge® Multi Surface, or Lestoil

DO rinse thoroughly and use a soft sponge to wipe down the surface.

DO NOT use any liquid or powder cleansers that contain abrasives, bleach or strong acids, such as cleaners for tile, grout, ceramic stove tops, toilet bowls, etc.

DO NOT use steel wool, brushes or abrasive sponge pads!

DO NOT use your countertop as a cutting board. Although cuts and scratches can be repaired, it will require the service of Euro Painting, Inc., which is an extra expense. DO NOT allow any cleaners to remain on surface for an extended period of time before thoroughly rinsing.

Bathtubs

DO NOT use any type of suction mounted accessories such as soap dishes, shampoo and conditioner holders, and, most importantly, suction type bathtub mats. These products will pull on the refinishing 24 hours a day, and over time they might ruin the coating of your bathtub or tile.

DO NOT bathe animals in the bathtub. Their claws are very sharp and can scratch the refinished surfaces. If you must use the bathtub to wash your pet, put a soft rubber pad or bathtub mat over the surface and be very careful. Remember to remove the bath mat after each use.

Do you offer a warranty?

All refinished surfaces are warranted for a period of three years, against bubbling, peeling, discoloration or other failure of adhesion of the refinishing materials. A five year warranty can be purchased for an additional $100.00.

Does refinishing have an odor?

Our new epoxy countertop finishes contain solvents which are necessary to make the finish hard and durable. We use special ventilation fans to exhaust odors and smells from the work area. Dissipation of the odor depends on a variety of factors including temperature and amount of air moved. Generally, most of the odor dissipates within few hours as the finish cures creating a long lasting, beautiful finish!

How long has Euro Painting been in business?

Euro Painting, Inc. has been a premier contractor since 2001.

Can you fix chips, knife marks, burns and scratches?

Chips, knife marks, burns and scratches can be repaired during the preparation stage of the refinishing process. All surface damage is cleaned, sanded, filled, and sanded smooth before refinishing.

What makes your refinishing process superior?

The combination of diligent preparation, our bonding agent and cutting-edge coatings sets us apart from all other refinishers. The original surface is always completely cleaned and surface scratches and chips are filled and repaired. Next the surface is treated with our bonding agent, which generates a bond between the current surface and the new coating.

Do I need to prepare anything before the technician arrives?

Yes. Any leaking faucets and loose tile or grout should be repaired before we can refinish. You should remove any soaps, shampoo, razors, toothbrushes, curtains, shower rods, hanging caddies, pictures, etc. from the area. Any item you can move with your hands should be removed.

Bathtub Resurfacing

What will my tub look like after bathtub refinishing?

Our Liquid Porcelain finish on our resurfaced bathtubs comes out looking new again! High gloss finish with an eye catching new shine.

How long will bathtub refinishing last?

Our LiquidPorcelain finish has a life span of 15 years plus! As long as the care instructions are followed. Kohler, American Standard, and Lasco don’t recommend harsh or abrasive cleaners; neither do we!

Can porcelain be repaired?

Porcelain bathtub surfaces can be repaired. Old, impossibly dirty and chipped bathtubs can be reverted back to their original glossy state. Porcelain repairs require skilled techniques as the area must be properly cleaned, filled and sanded to match the old surface.

Can you refinish plastic or fiberglass bathtubs?

Plastic and fiberglass bathtub refinishing is similar to the process of repairing and resurfacing porcelain bathtubs. First, the surface must be chemically cleaned to remove any soap scum, mineral deposits, or body oils. Next, all cracks and chips are filled and sanded smooth. Then Euro Painting, Inc. proprietary bonding agent is applied to ensure that the new finish adheres to the old surface. Finally, eight layers of acrylic enamel are sprayed sequentially to restore the original luster of the tub.

Will the surface of my tub be slippery after it’s been refinished?

The new porcelain finish on your bathtub is not any more slippery than the surface of a new acrylic bathtub. However, we do offer non-slip finish for the bottom of the tub if you would like extra protection against slipping.

Countertop Resurfacing

How long will refinished countertop last?

With proper care, refinished countertops can extend the useful life of your countertops to 15 years or more. Our bonding agent creates a chemical bond between old and new surfaces, assuring you a long life for your refinished countertop.

How durable are refinished countertops?

We use the most industrially cutting-edge coatings available. These finishes are intended to stand up to daily use and do not require unusual care. However, like any laminate, tile or granite surface, a refinished surface can be chipped or cut if it is mistreated. But we can repair and return a refinished countertop to like new.

Do refinished countertops look painted?

If you choose to refinish in Natural Stone finish the new surface will resemble the stone look. Glass finish will resemble the granite and Satin finish its just unique. Most people will have a tough time telling any difference between our refinished countertop and a newly installed countertop. We are that good!

Payment

How much do I have to pay to get started?

We required 50% down payment prior staring the project and the remaining 50% at the completion of the project.

Can I pay with a credit or debit card?

Yes you can. However there will be 3% credit card processing fees added to an invoice.

How do I go about making payment?

You can pay with cash, check, bank transfer, credit card or debit card.
