If you took all the tubs, tile, countertops and sinks we ‘recycled’ by refinishing instead of throwing them away, we effectively kept over 2,145,000 cubic feet of ‘waste’ out of landfills. That’s the equivalent of over 186 loaded pickup trucks each day!

Miracle Method Surface Refinishing celebrates 34 years of Green Remodeling and continues to grow in sales and number of locations at a record pace. Its growth is not only good for business, but it also means that a record amount of old bathtubs, sinks, tile walls and kitchen countertops are kept out of landfills making Miracle Method a significant contributor to a Greener Environment.
Every spring, Earth Day is celebrated, but remodeling without demolition has been an obsession since the company was founded 34 years ago. When a Miracle Method Surface Refinishing technician refinishes an existing tub, tile surround, bathroom vanity or kitchen countertop, he is keeping those fixtures out of a landfill.
Traditional home remodeling is a major contributor to overflowing landfills across the country. According to the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), a home remodeling project can generate between 70 and 115 lbs. of waste per square foot. By contrast, new home construction generates only 3 to 5 lbs. of construction waste per square foot.
To explain the difference Miracle Method made in 2012, Chuck Pistor, President of Miracle Method Surface Refinishing, describes it this way: "If you took all the tubs, tile, countertops and sinks we ‘recycled’ by refinishing instead of throwing them away, we effectively kept over 2,145,000 cubic feet of ‘waste’ out of landfills. That’s the equivalent of over 186 loaded pickup trucks each day!”
Going Green isn’t the only reason Miracle Method’s residential and commercial customers use the company’s surface refinishing process, it also saves them money. “Surface refinishing can save up to 75% over replacing bathroom fixtures and kitchen countertops,” says Pistor. The fact is an ugly bathtub no longer needs to be replaced just because it’s not easy to clean or because it’s the wrong color. Scratched and burned kitchen countertops can also be refinished to look like new and quality surface refinishing can add up to 15 years of life to most surfaces.
Miracle Method is the nation’s largest surface refinishing network with 127 offices and for 34 years has been committed to the finest quality and providing customers with a beautiful, durable and affordable green remodeling option.
