When it comes to bathroom remodeling, claw-foot tubs are one of the most popular decor items available today. These tubs add charm, appeal and sense of luxury. But what if you found an old and rusted one, what would you do? Who would contact? The people at Southern Refinishing are experts in these iconic tubs and so many others things that will enhance you home décor.
Southern Refinishing has more than 40 years experience offering residential and commercial work. They refinish materials such as marble, cast iron, plastic and fiberglass and can update floors, countertops and pedestal sinks.
“Refinishing is taking something that is old, dingy or out dated and giving it the breath of life again,” says Lesley Dickerson, president of Southern Refinishing. “It’s taking something that still has many good years left and making it look as good as it did the day it was made. It’s saving homeowners the time and cost of replacement.”
Their residential work can be found all throughout the region with many satisfied clients. Their commercial work is prestigious, too – the company has done work at the Bourbon-Orleans Hotel and the Ritz-Carlton, as well as the naval bases in Belle Chasse and Mississippi.
The most unique thing they have refinished is the pelican sign that’s on the Crescent City Connection bridge, which you can see if you’re driving to the West Bank from New Orleans.
“We did it back when Governor Blanco was in office, very proud moment for us,” says Dickerson. ”It’s always nice to see it when we are on our way home from a long day. It reminds us why we do what we do.”
