As a home owner of a 65 plus year old home for over 30 years, my husband and I have had our share of home repair and improvement projects as you would expect, but it was when our son moved away to college that we decided to take on our next project. While renovating the two upstairs bedrooms, in a last-minute decision, I decided to refinish the floors. The first-level floors had been professionally sanded @ 20 years earlier. The house was a construction site, plastic on all the doorways and the dog had to stay with friends. Not something I wanted to repeat.
I took on the task of sanding them myself. Working on 1 small room at a time, and just needing to get a ‘tooth’ on the nearly finish free floors - Why rent a sander??? So, on my hands and knees, belt sander in one hand and palm sander in the other, off I went, creating a lot of dust in my wake. The whole time, mumbling under my breath ‘There’s got to be a better way’.
Funny how sometimes your passion finds you or you find your passion. In this case, it was a serendipitous late-night, random internet search where I met my passion. I found that better way. In 2013, New Life Floors, LLC was born. I wanted to give people an alternative to traditional sanding. Have your floors lost their finish or are starting to? Do you like the current color? Are the floors in good shape otherwise? No gouges, deep scratches or holes? Sand-free may be the way to go. It is cheaper, faster and cleaner.
In 2014, I took an epoxy floor training class where I became intrigued by all the crazy and vibrant colors available. After spending time playing around with colors and techniques, Epoxy By Design was born. This new division resurfaces floors, table tops, counter tops and bar tops with versatile epoxy.
In 2017, I became a certified Countertop Epoxy installer. This training also included their revolutionary FxPoxy flooring system.
In 2018, the company was rebranded and launched The Surface Restoration Company, which truly represents my undeniable passion and gift for taking ANYTHING and making it look stunning and new. I am on the forefront of the epoxy movement. I am not only committed to having the surface look amazing now but also maintaining that amazing look years later.
