• David Ramos of Bay Area Coatings has been refinishing tubs, showers and tile for us for several years now.  We own a very busy San Francisco real estate staging company; we need great work at reasonable prices, and we need it fast!  David’s service is always prompt and courteous, and the quality of his work is sensational.  We can’t imagine using anyone else for this kind of work.  On top of everything, David just happens to be a really nice, informative, professional and honest guy.  We highly recommend him!

  • Bay Area Coatings just refinished 3 tubs and enclosures. Wow was I surprised at how awesome they look. From 42-year old tubs with black spots, chips, stains, etc to sparkling brand new gorgeous bathrooms. What a huge difference it made and saved us a ton of money by not having to replace the tubs. I recommend this company to all my friends and family. Great, honest and reliable work done by John and his team. Thank you!

  • I didn’t know there was an option other than replacing a completely yucky tub until we chanced upon Bay Area Coatings – Bathtub & Tile Refinishing and they made a pretty stained bath look brand new. We were remodeling a condo before putting it on the market and needed to seriously upgrade the bathroom. We had Bay Area Coatings (owned by David Ramos) come in and fix the tub. Afterwards, our contractor put a ladder in the tub to paint and it caused the refinishing work to chip. Although he didn’t have to, David sent his guy back out to touch up the flaws without additional cost.

  • I think you probably don’t need me as a reference.  Your work speaks for itself!  IT IS EXCELLENT!  YOU ARE AN ARTIST! I think your price was a bargain for what you did, since I don’t have to change tiles, etc.  I’M VERY PROUD OF THIS BEAUTIFUL TUB!

  • My bathtub is 70 years old and it needed some professional sprucing up. These guys did a fabulous job. Now it looks new again and if it could speak for itself it would beam with pride and boast about it’s appearance. This company works hard to satisfy it’s customers and offer a quality product.

  • I just wanted to say that I love my “new” bathroom. David and his team did a really good job and I couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out. I can’t stop looking at it, it looks brand new and everything is so shiny and clean!! Highly recommended.

  • I got an original quote from the general manager for two fiber glass tub refinishing. Because the job cannot be done per the original job description, the general manager voluntarily lower $205 from the final charge. The job was done beautifully. I am happy for the job done and the company’s honesty.

  • There are many who aspire to cash in on bathtub and tile recoating. But when we needed a shower and bathtub done as part of a remodel project, we searched for a knowledgeable vendor who could come in, do an effective job, and allow us to move on with other work.  Bay Area Coatings fit that requirement. They are dependable, know their business, and the job was done right.

  • Bay Area Coatings did a great job on our two horribly dated. David and is employees were very professional and everything happened on schedule. The end result was bright, smooth and very modern looking. We couldn’t be happier and would recommend them highly to anyone.

  • Bay Area Coatings was a great call for updating our 1985 condo. They refinished our kitchen countertop tile, kitchen sink, shower tiles and shower floor pan – it made a HUGE difference, made everything look clean & modern. Our kitchen tiles looked out of date (cream with black grout) and after the refinishing they are a great all-over almond color with no black grout showing. The shower pan was stained, and the shower tiles were old-fashioned-looking (gold flecks) with stained grout – they refinished to a beautiful solid white all over.
    So much more cost-effective than re-tiling or getting a new sink, etc. The refinished coating is not as tough as tile or the original porcelain would be, so just be a little more gentle with them (don’t cut with a knife directly on the tile, don’t throw a heavy skillet into the sink, for instance). But you can’t beat the look or the price, so it’s a small price to pay.David & team are very professional – in & out in just a day or two, and I felt totally comfortable having them in the house while we were out. They locked the door, didn’t let the cat out, and cleaned up – couldn’t ask for more.

  • Had my kitchen sink recoated in May 2010. In February 2011 I noticed areas that were chipping away. Contacted David over the phone, email and voice mail to come and look at the sink because my warranty would expire in May 2011. He continues to avoid me and any negative problems. Has promised to come here but never shows. Not happy with customer service and have reported him to Better Business Bureau.
    April 2011-Update David returned my calls and scheduled a day to relook at the kitchen sink. It’s then that he explained that he was out of town for personal reasons. He noticed that the sink needed to be touched up but he offered instead to redo the entire sink at no charge. The sink looks brand new and I’m very happy.

  • Used Bay Area Coatings for a tub recently that had two chips. I received a call the morning of the appt telling me that my service person would be about four hours late. Ok, not a problem, but not a good start. Once he got there, he went straight to work prepping the tub area, filling in the chips, and then resurfacing the tub. The fumes from the spray(acrylic?) paint can be overwhelming at times, but that’s why he brings a fan with funnel to suck out all the air to the outside. The entire process takes half a day, then you let it dry over night, and the service person comes back the next day to take care of the final touches. Overall, the tub looks shiny and new. You cannot tell where the two chips were and I’m satisfied with the job. I’m curious how long the shine will stay for. If it still looks like this in 3 years, I would bump my star rating up to four. The 5-year “warranty” is not formally documented, but I trust the owner will uphold his promise if anything goes grossly wrong.
