Largo, FL (PRWEB) February 2, 2010
Remodeling a home often means a large amount of construction waste. According to the EPA, this amounts to a whopping 136 million tons of waste annually. It also makes up 20% of the waste in landfills.
Go Green Reglazing, a woman-owned and family run business, is out to make a difference, saving the planet one restoration at a time.
The Largo based company is the first professional reglazer in the Tampa Bay area to use insta-DRI™, a revolutionary, 100% non-toxic reglazing process for kitchen and bath remodeling. Go Green Reglazing combines technological innovation with good-for-you-and-the-earth practices. All their reglazing processes are independently Certified Green by The Institute for Green Business Certification, Inc. (IGBC) to insure the health, safety and well-being of the customer and employees.
The insta-DRI™ process is 100% zero-VOC, non-toxic and safe. Fixtures are instantly dried with a high powered UV light, allowing the bathroom or kitchen to be used immediately. "It's fast and safe for you, your pets and the environment," added Ms. Pataki. "Plus there's no waste to be hauled away and dumped into landfills. Very few reglazers in the entire country have this technology. Go Green Reglazing is proud to be one of the first in Florida and the only one on the Gulf Coast offering insta-DRI™ reglazing to both residential and commercial customers."
The new reglazing process, the first of its kind, can revive porcelain, acrylic, fiberglass and wood bath and kitchen fixtures. "Most people think they have to tear out and replace their old bathtubs or kitchen countertops when they're worn, chipped, or the wrong color," Ms. Pataki said. "insta-DRI™ creates a new finish that dries instantly so you can use your bath or kitchen as soon as we're done. The surface looks and feels like porcelain, is super easy to clean, lasts for years and saves consumers up to 80% of the cost of total replacement. It saves the landfills from broken fixtures and demolition debris, some of which is toxic. Best of all, because reglazing seals the surface, there's no need for grout or caulking, which virtually eliminates not only unhealthy mold and mildew but also time spent scouring and scrubbing. And less work and more time is always great news for busy homeowners!"
A pioneer in ECO-friendly refinishing services, Go Green Reglazing (aka "GGR") is the first and only reglazing company on the West Coast of Florida to offer an independently certified, completely green, affordable alternative to "tear out and replace" remodeling. Go Green Reglazing's advanced, non-toxic refinishing technology restores damaged, out-dated bathroom and kitchen fixtures, tile, vanities, cabinets and countertops. Insta-DRI™ dries in seconds and leaves no lingering chemical odors, which can create respiratory problems. Surfaces are ready for immediate use, and the amount of unnecessary and harmful waste polluting local landfills is significantly reduced or eliminated completely.
"We are deeply committed to preserving the natural environment," Go Green Reglazing's President Terezia Pataki stated. "GGR (Go Green Reglazing) meets this commitment through a combination of technologies to refinish kitchen and bathroom fixtures instead of replacing them. We make every effort to save precious natural resources involved in manufacturing, transporting and installing replacement parts."
Go Green Reglazing's eco-friendly, no and lo-VOC processes address everything from a simple change of color for a bathtub or kitchen countertop to repairing chipped, worn or damaged bath tubs and sinks. "We've saved tubs and other fixtures that the homeowner was convinced were beyond repair, including rusted tubs. When we were done, they said they couldn't tell they weren't brand new. People are so happy with the process, they often refinish the entire bathroom or kitchen - floors, sinks, vanities, countertops and cabinets! It's so much more affordable and you end up with an updated kitchen or bath at a fraction of the cost, time, and without the mess of replacement."
Granite and stone kitchens have become popular with home remodeling but are expensive and time-consuming. The process of quarrying, manufacturing, and delivering the natural stone adds to the carbon footprint of the homeowner and the industries involved. Go Green Reglazing has a Green solution to those problems: MultiStone Accents, natural stone and granite look finishes for kitchen countertops that are part hi-tech, part artistry. MultiStone Accents come in a variety of patterns and colors. Each pattern is created much like a painting on canvas, painstakingly hand applied, resulting in a unique, highly durable, solid surface look. Like all Go Green Reglazing finishes, MultiStone Accents finishes can be quickly and economically repaired in the event of a chip.
"Green remodeling makes sense," says Pataki. "Refinishing with certified green products saves you money, time, your health and the health of our planet. It's good for everybody. There's no waiting, no downtime, no mess. You get a new look for your kitchen or bath and feel good about saving the environment. It's like having your cake and eating it, too!"
Go Green Reglazing offers a five-year written guarantee against fading, peeling or cracking. Using the simple care and maintenance recommended by Go Green Reglazing, a Go Green Reglazing refinished surface should last up to 20 years. For more information, visit http://www.gogreenreglazing.com.
