Obviously we do this work for a living but that does not mean we do it only for the money. Income is the exchange for work well done, a natural consequence of doing things right. If you do each bath with the purpose of getting it perfect – as though it was one’s own, you always feel good about your business, you get recommended on to others and you earn a living. In my experience a job well done is always the most effective and reliable form of promotion.
Bath restoration is a science and an art. The science contains technology, how skilfully the technology is applied is the art. It requires concentration, patience, understanding, good perception, experience, care, a purpose to get it right, endurance and a willingness to keep grafting under difficult conditions. As a job it is not everyone’s cup of tea.
You may find this site excessively informative, straight up and gritty but I just want to put you in contact with the field of bath restoration so you know what it is all about to help you decide what to do.
I personally run the bath resurfacing business in the Western Cape and in fact do some of the hands-on bath resurfacing work myself here. Yes perhaps by now I should be sitting at a desk but I enjoy travelling around resurfacing baths, meeting customers and seeing the smile on their face when I am finished the job. I also feel it is important to continue to improve our service and technology and the best place to do this is out on the road doing the actual work.
