Welcome Back to Sharp Refinishing!

Who We Are and What We Do

We are Jim and Debbie Sharp, the husband-and-wife team of Sharp Refinishing, a small family-owned and operated bathtub refinishing company established in 1980 and officing out of Grapevine, Texas. 

Although most of our work is residential and performed on-site in homes, we also do a fair amount of commercial work.

Unless you were personally referred to us or found us on Angie's List, you probably came across our website through a Google search.  As consumers ourselves, we know how daunting it can be to try to choose a service company of any kind just based on a website, so to help set your mind at ease, please take the time to read a few of our testimonials, then call 817.481.3670 or email us to talk about your specific refinishing needs.  We personally answer all phone calls and emails, and look forward to serving you!

Since 1980, we've been serving Dallas and Fort Worth (DFW) and its surrounding areas including Grapevine, Southlake, Colleyville, Flower Mound, Roanoke, Coppell, Trophy Club, and Keller, by specializing in refinishing a variety of surfaces and fixtures.  Here are some quick links to get you to the specific area of refinishing in which you're interested.

What makes us different from other refinishing companies?

Being a small family-owned and operated business, and not a franchise, makes us different from other refinishing companies.  Our last name is part of our company name, and we put it on the line every day!  We have a vested interest in our success, and that means doing it right the first time, every time.  We have seen SO many refinishing companies come and go over the years.  They were the ones who either subcontracted out their work, or just worked "at it", refinishing part-time, making it like a hobby instead of a business, never fine-tuning and perfecting the skill. 

You know the old saying:  practice makes perfect.  We refinish nearly every day of the week, all year long, and have for the past 35+ years.  My husband, Jim, and our associate, David, are the only ones who do the refinishing.  Work is never sub-contracted out to anyone else.  I (Debbie) am Jim's wife and the office manager, the one you will speak to when you call.

Other than this website, all of our business comes from personal referrals.  We aren't the cheapest or the most expensive out there, but we are the best in what we do.  From the high quality refinishing products that we have found and chosen to use, to the meticulous care we take with every single job, you will never be disappointed with our work. 

Just take a look at our long list of satisfied customers.  In addition to this list of testimonials, you will see another separate list of testimonials on Angie's List, a consumer-driven service reporting agency.  Our highly-rated customer reviews on Angie's List  have won us the Super Service Award for the last 6 years.

How Much Does it Cost?

We list our prices on our website because we want you to have a general idea of what your costs will be.  Using our pricing as a guideline will help you to determine if refinishing will meet your needs.  If you want more information, call us at 817.481.3670.

Every job is unique to us, and we bid them each individually based on a variety of parameters, including (1) job location, (2) scope of job, and (3) repair work needed prior to refinishing.

What areas do we service?

Although we are located near the areas of Grapevine, Southlake, Colleyville, Flower Mound, Roanoke, Coppell, and Keller, we service the entire DFW metroplex and surrounding areas from Dallas to Fort Worth and all points in between!


How to Get a Q-U-I-C-K- Estimate

The quickest way to get an estimate is to send us a digital picture with your camera or phone.  Sending us pictures via email at Debbie@SharpRefinishing.com helps us greatly in determining a cost range for refinishing and/or repairs, which eliminates a trip for assessment - and saves time in receiving your bid and scheduling the work.  When emailing for an estimate, please include your zip code and how quickly you need the work to be completed!

On all pictures, please send an overall picture of the tub, sink, shower, countertop, or wall tile you're wanting refinished, as well as a close-up of any damage.  On the close-up, get close enough so I can see the damage, but far enough away so I can gain perspective of the size and location of the damage in relation to the rest of the area.

For cultured marble or oversized fiberglass and acrylic bathtubs:  When sending pictures of a cultured marble or oversized fiberglass or acrylic tub, please include measurements for length, width, and depth, because unlike standard 5' porcelain bathtubs, they can be any size or shape.

When taking these measurements, do not dip down into the tub.  Instead, just take your tape measure and measure straight across the tub from front to back for length; side to side for width; and lastly, for the depth, measure from the outside of the tub starting at the floor and go straight up vertically to the top of the tub. 

With pictures and these 3 measurements, we will be able to give you a good ballpark bid to see if it fits into your budget. 

For porcelain, fiberglass, and acrylic bathtubs: Although some porcelain, fiberglass, and acrylic bathtubs can be odd-sized or oversized, the most common type are just 5 foot rectangles, so the cost for refinishing is $350.  However, because porcelain tubs are the most common type found in almost every home and usually lasting for many years before needing to be refinished, they can come to us with everything from just a minor blemish to a grayed-out bottom because they have been used so much.

Because of those variables, the most helpful image will be the one of any damage in or on the tub, whether that is just a chip, a rusted-out area near the drain, or a grayed-out bottom.  Pictures of damage will enable us to give you a range for repairs, which can range from $25-$150, depending on the severity of the damage.

For bathroom countertops:  Most countertops are the same depth and usually have a 4" backsplash, so the only measurement we usually need to determine a price for refinishing a countertop is the length and the number of bowls in each countertop.


Care Instructions

A professionally refinished surface looks, feels, and cleans like brand new, so be sure to use only mild, non-abrasive products without bleach when cleaning, because as with any new surface, the finish or shine can be dulled or damaged by abrasive cleaners or bleach. 

Most liquid and foam 'green' cleaners will work, but read the label to make sure they do not contain bleach or abrasives.  We recommend Lysol Bathroom Cleaner, Simple Green Free & Clear, or even a wet soapy washcloth.

For optimal results, maintain a non-silicone caulking around all refinished surfaces, especially bathtubs.  We recommend Loctite's Polyseamseal Ultra (found at Lowe's), or DAP's Kwik Seal caulk (found at Home Depot). 

Do not leave soapy bottles on the bathtub ledges.  Do not allow children to play with metal toys in the tub.  Do not use a suction mat in a refinished bathtub, and if you use a non-suction mat, you must remove it after each use to avoid moisture build-up between the mat and the tub, which can lead to peeling.

Warranty Information

We warranty our refinishing work for 3 years against bubbling and peeling due to workmanship or product defects.  If there is a problem with the product itself or the workmanship (application of the product), it will show up within a week of refinishing, and it is very rare.

There are only three warranty exclusions - bubbling or peeling due to chipping, moisture entrapment, or unrepaired leaks.  Here’s why: 

Bubbling or peeling due to chipping:  A refinished surface can chip just like a non-refinished surface, so if your refinished surface does get chipped (from dropping something in the tub, or children's toys breaking the seal, for example), keep the area as dry as possible and contact us to schedule a repair (charges will apply).  Timing is especially important if the chip is below the waterline, because water can eventually work its way beneath it and cause the refinished surface to bubble and peel.

Bubbling or peeling due to moisture entrapment:  Setting and leaving items like wet or soapy bottles, jars, washcloths, or soap on a refinished surface can cause moisture to get trapped between these items and the refinished surface, causing it to bubble and then peel when picking up the item.  We recommend a shower caddy or soap dish. 

Never use a suction bath mat on the bottom of a refinished tub.  If you use a non-suction mat, you must take it up after each use to avoid moisture entrapment.

Bubbling or peeling due to unrepaired leaks:   Constant dripping or leaking water on a refinished surface, especially near the drain, may cause it to eventually bubble and finally start to peel.  Don't let a leaky faucet go un-repaired.
