The "infamous" Temple University crew
This is most of the "Infamous" Temple University crew. 1st. Sargeant Tom Cavileer (second from right) ran the show but everyone did their part (Even Charlie showed up). They did 204 entire bathrooms in 21 days with 0 defects. They liked our work so much our next university was St. Joe's with over 540 rooms. All this while also doing the Trump Marina, Trump Plaza and all our our residential customers.
Check out our movie cameo!Find us in the movie "The Town" starring Ben Affleck and Blake LIvely. We refinished two ancient tubs and a pedestal sink. They wouldn't let Charlie be a co-producer, but they were grateful for the fast turaround and great refinishing job by our Boston techs.
Why not just tear out and replace the tub?When you factor in the plumbing costs to remove and reinstall a tub, plus the landfill for the old tub and initial tub cost for the new tub, it comes to almost $2000. You're also without your bathroom for a week and it comes with a big dusty mess! You can refinish, also called reglazing, for a fraction of the cost. Most standard tubs can be brought to a "like new" condition, with a 5 year warranty, for under $450! It can all me done in one day, and you can use the tub the very next day!
Bathtub refinishing is the process of restoring the surface of a worn, damaged bathtub to a like new condition. This process typically involves repairing any damaged areas, prepping the surface and applying a new finish

I dealt with Charlie over the phone and he is a character, but sent Manny to my house when he said he would. The finished product looked brand new. Had a minor problem and Charlie was quick to send Manny back to fix. Problem was my fault , but Charlie wanted to make sure I was happy. I would recommend this process and this company to family and friends.

We needed to get 3 bathtubs and the surrounding tile refinished from blue to white in 4 days. I spent 30 minutes listening to answering machines and then called Eastern Refinishing. I was transferred to a guy named "Charlie" who seemed very knowledgable and scheduled the work for thursday. Sure enough, 2 men arrived at 10:00 and went to work. One of them seemed to be deaf and did little talking however their work spoke for them. Within 5-6 hours the bathrooms were completely transformed right down to the caulk being replaced. Needless to say we were quite impressed. The bathtubs looked like new. I would recommend these people for ANY refinishing that you need done.

By: Dane Stanton
If you are searching for tips on how to properly bring feng shui in the bathroom in your home you may become exhausted before you find what you are looking for. The reason for this is in large part due to the fact that it is hundreds of years old and when these basic principles were born, there were no such things as bathrooms indoors and especially in your house.
This doesn't mean that it is impossible to bring it in the bathroom because it certainly is if you follow the basic ba gua map that is the foundation of adding feng shui to any space. There are some tips that have been created by modern day masters that can help you balance out the energy in your home.
Common Bathroom Fixes
There are many issues that cause problems when trying to incorporate feng shui in the bathroom and these are generally due to the location of the bathroom. A bathroom that is located above the front door for example, will generate negative energy and compromise the fire energy, which can be devastating to health and prosperity.
While a bathroom that is located next to the front door can have the effects of draining the entire house of positive energy before it has even had the chance. These are common problems are often have common solutions so let's look at a few of the things incorporating feng shui in the bathroom fixes.
So you have a bathroom that is located above your kitchen or front door and this is proven to be a very negative force in the energy for the house. In order to correct this and properly bring feng shui in the bathroom chances are you are not going to renovate your house because of this issue.
The good thing is that you don't even have to tear out walls because in order to rectify this situation and bring feng shui in the bathroom, all you have to do is place a round mirror on the ceiling above the toilet. This will reverse the downward flow of water. It is also suggested to hang a crystal in the center of the room and place earthy objects such as plants to stabilize energies within the bathroom.
Incorporating this in the bathroom when your bathroom is located near the entrance of your home can be reversed by hanging a large full length mirror on the outside of the bathroom door. The purpose of this is to deflect away the positive energies from the bathroom so they won't be drained with the downward pull of the water from the bathroom. It is also helpful to keep the toilet lid closed as well as the drains when they are not in use.
