Proud Veteran Business Owners

Bob Kennedy Army Veteran owner Surface Renew

To say Surface Renew is veteran friendly is an understatement. The founder, Bob Kennedy, is a US Army veteran. As of 2019, four veterans fill key leadership and logistics positions at Surface Renew: 1 Army vet, 1 Marine vet, and 2 Air Force members.

Two important things that carry over well from the armed services to our bathtub refinishing business is, 1) Respect, and 2) Extreme attention to detail. Our Arkansas bathtub refinishing process, like the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) of the military must be followed to a “T”, every time, all the time to achieve the best possible results.

Those military type procedures form the core backbone of our service that provides our customers with outstanding results. Learn more about Bob in his own words on video.


Even though this is a bathtub refinishing blog we do many other refinishing services too.


Sam Grey Veteran Trainer at Surface Renew

Sam Grey, Veteran Trainer

Before any of our service technicians enter your home, our MARINE veteran, Sam Gray, has put them through Surface Renew’s version of boot camp! They get an intense crash course in our chemicals, processes, procedures, and company values.

Sam personally oversees them as they train in our shop and then eventually under his close supervision on the job. There is no weekend training course that can instantly produce a quality tub refinishing technician. Like military basic training, not everyone makes it, but those who do are the best in this business!

That’s why in addition to a great refinishing process, our veteran led military style training and SOPs offer you and outstanding service experience and great results.

Fast Dependable Service

Tub and tile refinishing is much faster and lower cost than traditional “tear out and install new” remodels. Bathtub and tile refinishing, as well as our numerous other services, save our customers up to 90% over replacement; and most projects are complete -from start to finish- in only 1 day instead of weeks to months later!
