About Us

Surface Renew is all about value.

Our clients find the most value in our services by opting for cost effective tile resurfacing instead of expensive replacement.

Surface Renew Inc. is a specialty tradesman company that began in April, 2004 and is based in Maumelle, AR. Services include repairing, resurfacing and refinishing bath tubs, wall and counter tile surfaces, showers, sinks and counter tops.

Tile resurfacing is a cost and time effective alternative to replacement. We resurface your fixtures with a hard and durable surface. These new surfaces come in a variety of modern colors and textures of your choice. Repaired and refinished surfaces are ready to use that same day.

Bob Kennedy, Owner

Bob Kennedy, Owner of Surface Renew Founded by Bob Kennedy, a local Arkansas resident who had invested in a 26 unit apartment complex.

Like most property owners, Bob was taking steps to improve the property. Because creating a better living environment for his tenants was his primary goal.

Bob shares his personal experience prior to going pro:

“One thing that came with the property was UGLY bathtubs. The cost to replace them was beyond my reach so I began looking for alternatives. I found 6 refinishing companies in the area and called them all.  Only 3 called me back; just 1 actually showed up for the job and he didn’t want to do my tubs because they were too much work. 

I HAD to do something with these tubs and was frustrated I couldn’t find an expert to help me.  So I did more research and found a company that would take me and one other person for an entire week of classroom AND train me on how to do this process. 

My extensive training opened my eyes to the many benefits and refinishing services I could offer residents and investors in Arkansas. In addition, I learned about resurfacing tiles, plastics, bath sinks & vanities, kitchen counter-tops, and even flooring.

It was then I saw a huge market need to fill with prompt, professional service in Arkansas. With the right equipment and chemicals coupled with my thorough technician training I could save investors, home owners, property managers, hotels, and anyone else with a bathroom or kitchen lots of time and money!

As a property owner/investor myself, I can understand the needs of businesses in the rental business. Empty units do not bring in rent money. As property managers we need our units to look NEW and CLEAN without spending a fortune every time a tenant moves out AND the unit needs to get ready to rent NOW!”
