Bathtub reglazing contractors NJ?
I was wondering if there was anyone out there with positive or negative recommendations re bathtub reglazers in the Union County NJ area.
We are having a terrible time finding contractors for this. There is literally only one listed in our local phone book. He seems ok (a local guy, not a chain, but supposedly in business for 20 years mostly doing apartment complexes), but we cannot find any information on him anywhere. We know how important it is to check such a company out (and we are very leery of this anyway, but aren't seeing other good solutions), but how do you get reviews/references, verify time in business, etc? (Obviously, we can ask the contractor for refs, but that is of limited value.) They are not listed with the BBB. The state has recorded no complaints against them, which tells us something, but not a lot.
When I look for other refacers, it turns out that they do not serve our area. It seems strange that in this densely populated area there are virtually no contractors for this. (There are lots of companies who do liners, but that's probably not doable in our case, or at least wouldn't come out well.)
I know that replacing the tub is in some ways the best solution, but it would involve over $20K in costs and put our only upstairs bath out of commission for, potentially, months.
