"When I began to look for a franchise opportunity to complement my established home remodeling business, Get A Grip instantly stood out from all others as a quality organization. The leadership team is terrific, the technical training is excellent, and the products are top-quality. Most of all, I appreciate the ongoing communication and support I receive from Get A Grip. It's an organization I'm proud to be part of, and has enabled my business to thrive and my customers to be highly satisfied."

Get A Grip Pittsburgh
John Dezelan

"Upon becoming acquainted with the Get A Grip team, both of us commented on how rare it was, in our experience, to come across a whole group of people so willing to share their expertise in such a patient and professional way. From start to finish, our training was positive and thorough. Since Get A Grip of Albuquerque works in the business, the entire team is highly knowledgeable about all aspects of the industry. The responsiveness of the Get A Grip team along with their high performing products, which impress our customers time and again, are priceless assets to our franchise."

Get A Grip of Greater Cleveland
Bill & Michele Raeder

"Purchasing one of the fastest growing franchises in the U.S. has been a great experience. The staff and owners made this an easy decision; they are always available to answer any questions I have whether I'm in the office or on a job site. Their hands-on training for my technicians out in the field made my job easy as an owner. Get A Grip's product is far superior to our closest competitor's and practically sells itself. Our clients are sold on Get A Grip and so am I."

Get A Grip of Southern Nevada
Michael Galarsa

“It has been an opportunity of a lifetime and my business is growing more and more each day. While having unbeatable products has definitely played a major role in the growth of my business, I know that I would not be where I am today without the support and dedication I have received from GET A GRIP’s corporate office in Albuquerque. The GET A GRIP team is truly a family and I am fortunate to be a member of it.”

Get A Grip Phoenix
Velda Wood

"Get A Grip has been a wonderful place to work for me because I have always enjoyed making old thinks look new again, and the great pride and satisfaction I get from my finished work. I have been with the company since March of 2009 and always knew that one day I would become a franchise owner. In October of 2011 I was fortunate enough to buy out the previous owner and take over my own business! Since then I have acquired many new happy customers and look forward to making many more."

Get A Grip Acadiana
Daniel Crossley

"After months of watching a new [Get A Grip] franchisee succeed so quickly I was sold! Get A Grip without a doubt dominated the resurfacing industry with their up-to-date technology and unbeatable products, and I am beyond pleased to be a part of the Get A Grip team both here locally and nationally. I have been in business for 4 years now and am the most sought out resurfacing company in the deep south. There is nothing that comes close to what can be offered and proven when it comes to kitchen and bath resurfacing-cost, product, superiority or longevity wise not to mention the limited down time before use again."

Get A Grip Florabama
Rob Johansen

About Get A Grip of Florabama and owner Rob Johansen as 2011 Vendor of the Year, Mobile Bay Area Apartment Association: I cannot remember the last time a new Associate Member joined the MBAAA and hit the floor running to the extent this one did. Staring a new business in a market is grueling and time consuming of its own accord, but this new business owner did not let that keep him from jumping right in, from day one, and making himself available in any conceivable way to help make our apartment association grow and prosper. From volunteering on committees to toting heavy stuff to lending a helping hand and kind word wherever he saw fit - he has been there. Not to mention all his other attributes. He makes himself available any time he is needed by his fellow board members, or his customers, not only for business but for personal needs as well. Everyone agrees that you could not find a kinder man. He genuinely cares and that is reflected in all of his actions.

Everyone at the corporate office in Albuquerque is very helpful in anyway we need. I’ve enjoyed working with these great folks – they’re like family! We are looking forward to many years together.”

"I just had my bathtub and kitchen counter resurfaced and love the results. I was impressed with the care in preparation for the application. They protected all my furniture and appliances (in the whole room!) with plastic and paper. With other contracts in the past I've had splashes and globs attached permanently to things where they didn't belong. The finished products were great, too, and the workers are very nice and hardworking people. I can easily recommend them."

Steph Tietjen

 
"Highly recommend this company that gives good service and they have a very professional staff. We used their service before when we decided to resurfaced our kitchen counters, and they did an excellent job. We returned because they took great care of our counters that last time, and this was five years ago. We highly recommend Get-A-Grip to anyone, and if you have apartment homes for rental, this is the company you want to use. Hard to go wrong when you have a professional company and staff that can do the job right the first time and at a great price!"

Tac Bonney

 
"I recently had my kitchen counters resurfaced by Get A Grip and WOW, what a difference this company has made in our home! Not only is the product beautiful (you would swear it is granite), but the service was timely, proficient and worthy of every practical penny!"

Triana Martinez

 
"Thank you for what you did to our kitchen counter. It is absolutely wonderful! This is my second time using Get A Grip and I can't praise you all enough for the great service, professionalism, and quality of workmanship! Excellent. Thank you, from our family to yours."

Susan Parr

 
"We had a great experience with Get A Grip. The tub was a mess…probably 50 years old, had been painted, and the paint was wearing off exposing the old rust stains that the paint was meant to cover. Thomas from Get A Grip was prompt, easy to work with and a pleasure to have in the house. He worked the better part of the day; he removed all the old paint, prepped the surface and applied the new finish. That was six months ago and all continues to hold. I managed to ding up a couple of spots with a ladder and called Get A Grip for help. Thomas came out, fixed the dings FOR FREE and it looks like new. Very happy."

Joanne and Stephen Myers

 
"I work at an apartment community that has been here for over 30 years and we are in the process of doing some new renovations. We were first using another resurfacing company but soon switched because we did not like the customer service. We have been using Get A Grip for about three years and love their work. They have turned our countertops and cabinets into new and they look great! They have great customer service! When we have a crazy request or timeline, they are quick to respond. We get many compliments on our countertops and cabinets and we always recommend Get A Grip!"

Sabrina Ariaz

 
"I am a manager for a large apartment community and we use Get A Grip to resurface our countertops, bathtubs and enclosures. I have been a community manager for a very long time and have never used any other resurfacing company besides Get A Grip. They do a wonderful job and all their employees are very helpful and knowledgeable. I always recommend Get A Grip when I get the chance."

Elka Medina

 
"Get A Grip has always been a professional resurfacing vendor that we will continue to use due to their quick response time, flexibility, quality craftsmanship, and great pricing!

Copper Ridge Apartments

 
"We just moved into a house with tacky bathroom counter tops from the 1970's. Get A Grip came out within a very reasonable amount of time to do an estimate and were able to schedule service within a week and a half. Our tech arrived on schedule and finished both areas in under 2 hours - amazing! The finished product is truly amazing. Not only does it completely cover up the ugly original finish - it also filled in the gashes in the sink. I would highly recommend Get A Grip if you don't want to spend a ton of money but want something that looks nice and will last."

Jennifer Herring

 
"Our fiberglass shower was in great shape but very worn to the black part in sections due to years of cleansers and rubbing. Thanks to Get A Grip it now looks like the whole unit was replaced. It looks fantastic. We also have a wet bar with some irreplaceable detailed tile that some had chips worn in them. The tile chips were filled in and colored perfectly. We highly recommend Get A Grip."

Estie Shirley

 
“Overall, the initial visit and then the follow-up were great. Technician arrived on time, answered any questions I had about the process. Listened to my concerns and then proceeded with the tub resurface. Everything was done nicely and returned to original working order.”

Maria DeOre

 
"We decided to update our bathrooms. Our tub was resurfaced in a different color, and the tile walls were spray coated in a Get A Metallic design. It only took two days and we have been very happy with the results, and have received many complements from visitors. We are very happy!"

Thomas McCalmont

 
"I called and had a tech come out to see whether the tub and shower could be resurfaced. They can resurface fiberglass, but not if it contains acrylic. I didn't know, and it turned out the tech had to try a chemical on a little spot to confirm there was no acrylic there. On the appointment day, a different tech came. He did the first step, which is an acid etch, to clean the surface. Once that was done, it looked good enough that they did not need to apply the coating. The tech was very helpful in pointing that out, instead of applying the coating and charging me for it. As a result, I saved about half of the estimated cost. The tub and shower pan look very good now."

Keith Almquist

 
"Everything was smooth from start to finish. Everyone I dealt with was pleasant and professional. Installer was prompt and neat, and even went over counters a second time to get exactly the look I wanted."

Julia Tyler

 
"They did an excellent job. They were on time, professional, and did better than we expected. I can't say enough good things about this experience."

Drew Cawthon

 
Realtors/Brokers:
"I want you to know how pleased we are with the quality of workmanship you and your technician provided. The bathrooms are outstanding. What a difference your work made. Your technician was professional and most definitely an asset to your business. Thanks again. I will refer others to you."

Irma Ramirez - Tom, Broker

 
"Thank you again for bringing lunch to our group and for the professional presentation of the services Get A Grip, Inc. Resurfacing can provide to our client base. While I am sold on your product and excellent service, it is gratifying to see that our agents were also impressed and will be happy to recommend the company to their clients as well. The list of companies we choose to endorse is relatively short, and all have a great reputation and a history of excellent customer service. We are happy to include Get A Grip, Inc. on that list!”

Carla Weaver, Property Manager
Country Club Apartments

 
Residential/Homeowner:
"All I can say is WOW! Over the past 20 years, I've had several projects "refinished," but they all looked like a nice spray paint finish or a plastic-like coating. I was a little hesitant to try it again, but after coming to your showroom and seeing a sample of the product, I thought I'd try one more time. The sink looks amazing, beautiful and very porcelain! I'm so glad that this product is available. I have another sink identical to the one that was finished in my outside kitchen. I'll be calling you in a few weeks to get it done."
Betty Dixon
 
"Just wanted you to know how beautiful my countertops look! Your technicians did a great job, they represent Get A Grip very well. I will highly recommend your company."
Josie Bunch
 
"Wanted to thank you for my beautiful resurfaced shower. I have tried so hard to take care it for the last 25 years, but the finish was actually scrubbed so much that it started to lose the finish. I was amazed after it was finished. Looks like new! Words just can't explain how I feel every time that I look at my shower. Your product is amazing and your team is not only highly skilled but the customer service attitude is like the good old days when people gave it their best."
Amanda Tinsley
 
“Thank you and your crew for everything. The new look is amazing and I am most grateful for Andy's professionalism and kind attitude. He did a great job and I can’t tell you enough how wonderful my new countertops look. The only change that I would make is to have it done sooner. Get A Grip does and extraordinary job and their products are superb. I would recommend them to anyone who is thinking about making a change to their countertops and any other type of work that Get A Grip does. Many thanks to you all.”
Dave Lepori
 
“I just wanted to let you know how nice the re-surfacing turned out. Your technician did a great job in a really short period of time. The tub & surround simply look new. And it didn't even look new when we moved in here 18 years ago. And I also really like the glossy white finish. The product looks to be far superior than the finish that was applied in April/2005, as you said it would. The coating is also much thicker than the original. It looks like it should last a good long time. Your technician is a good guy and represents your business well."
Marybeth Marcinkovich
 
 
"I am so pleased with the surface on my bathtub – no slipping! Your tech was so courteous and kind. I will tell others about your good work. Many thanks!"
Aleatha Scholer
 
“Just a short note to say thank you for the recent resurfacing of our kitchen counters. From our visit with Gary to the gorgeous finished product done by David, we couldn’t be happier with the whole experience. We appreciate the professionalism and friendliness of your staff.”
Jerry & Deborah King
 
“I had my kitchen counters resurfaced by your technician. I wanted to let you know that I love the look and how pleased I was with the service. Your technician was personable, responsible, and did an excellent job. Needless to say, I will gladly refer others to your service (as I have already done). Thanks again to your excellent staff for their help and the excellent job.”
Phyllis M. Denton
 
“I was so glad that I tried Get A Grip resurfacing. It changed the entire look and feel of our bathroom in an afternoon with no remodeling and for a fraction of the cost. We have another bathroom and kitchen that we’ll definitely resurface with Get A Grip and would recommend anyone do the same.”
Chris & Angela Tobey
 
“After visiting several other establishments we ended up at yours and agreed that your method might be the one that we were seeking. I would not hesitate to recommend your company to others seeking to have their countertops and sinks resurfaced based on the performance of your technician.”
Anthony R. Salazar
 
“Ten years ago we had our tub refinished by your company. When we needed our shower pan refinished, we immediately thought of GET A GRIP. We are very pleased with the results and will recommend your company and services to our friends.”
Jack & Amanda Roberts
 

“I got my countertops refinished and the cost was a fraction of the price of putting in new countertops. They look like Corian countertops now. GET A GRIP did an incredible job. I’m selling my house soon so this just added value to the selling price of my house.”

Bennie Walker, Jr.
 
“This is my second home in which I have had my bathroom vanities and kitchen countertops resurfaced by GET A GRIP. I can get the look and feel of stone or granite without spending a fortune. Everything looks great and is very easy to clean.”
Andrea Colliage

Edith Jonas
 
“We had GET A GRIP resurface our 45-year old kitchen Formica countertop, bathroom vanity and fiberglass shower. Their Eurostone technique finish is fantastic and extremely durable.”
Jim Rospopo
 
“I’m writing to thank you so much for redoing my bathroom sink and tub. It looks great and saved my tons of money on buying new. I appreciate your kindness and business practices.”
Joyce Herrmann Harte
 
“Had my bathroom counters done last year and they look great.”
Nettie Richter
 
“We saw GET A GRIP at a trade show, and were thrilled that you could resurface countertops. We now have a new look, and in just one day. I would never hesitate to refer you to anyone.”
