Installed new surface on countertops using the "Miracle Method", which puts a new hard polymer surface, that looks like a new solid surface, on top of existing kitchen countertop surfaces.
The end result was good, and the price was much cheaper than new countertops. Also, new countertops would have meant the walls would have been damaged when the old countertops were removed, meaning new ceramic backsplash would have been needed. The Miracle Method is a 3 day process, and the whole area needs to be separated from the rest of the house with dust curtains and ventilated with large fans to keep dust and odors in the kitchen and sent outside. The only problem was that the original finish incorporated a new (for the installers) additive to add reflective and copper highlights (which we had selected), and this additive was defective (not waterproof). So within 6-9 months the tan countertops were getting white from the water damage. The Miracle Method people made good on their 100% guarantee and came back and redid all the surfaces with a new surface coating so the original damaged surface was replaced with a new surface (without the copper highlights), which so far appears perfect and waterproof. Through it all they were very friendly and professional, and in the end we have a brand new look to our kitchen.

It was very pleasant and easy to make an appointment with Jonee for a free in-home estimate of the work we wanted performed. Paul came out to our home to give us our estimate within the appointed time period. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional, and he answered all of our questions. We decided to have the job done right on the spot, and an appointment for service was confirmed 2 weeks hence. Patrick showed up at our home exactly at the appointed time. Right from the outset he provided a very positive impression. He was very friendly and professional in his demeanor. He went right to work and had everything covered and masked in no time. Patrick was very fast, efficient, thorough, detail-oriented, and professional. Though the job was projected to take 1 and 1/2 days, it took Patrick approximately 7 hours to complete. The finished product looks even better than I had hoped. It was a pleasure working with Miracle Method of SW Houston, and we would certainly utilize their services again. We would also highly recommend them to friends and neighbors.

Bathtub with repair
QUOTE: Owner Jonee Barnett gave an excellent description of Miracle Method bathtub resurfacing and withing 15 minutes emailed a detailed proposal including 5-year warranty.
SERVICE DATES: When I accepted the proposal she scheduled the first and second appointments immediately (2 and 3 days out).
MIRACLE METHOD: Does not affect plumbing. Does not use acids. A franchise operation covering USA.
WORK: Technician came on time on day 1 and laid down drop cloths before starting work. He put plastic sheeting over all areas that needed protecting. He installed a blower with a 1-foot-diameter air duct that went from bathroom out a window to pull fumes out of the house. Co-owner Paul Barnett came over to inspect a small corroded area, which he showed was caused by a low quality foam gasket installed 13 years ago by the homebuilder. He replaced the defective gasket with a sturdy rubber one. The tech filled in the dime-sized corroded area with fiberglass. Then the tech sprayed the Miracle Method bonding agent and acrylic coating. On day 2 the tech buffed the surface and installed the non-slip coating. At the end, he cleaned up the work area.
WARRANTY: 5 years. Expected life 15-20 years according to Jonee. Warranty says to use Scrubbing Bubbles or 409 to clean tub and avoid abrasives and chlorine products.
The Barnetts run a well-oiled operation of the highest quality.

Fiberglass tub/shower unit & bathroom counter
The resurfaced my fiberglass tub/enclosure, resurfaced my faux marble countertop and another countertop. Looks like new, very professional work and at a fraction of the cost of replacing tub, enclosure and 2 countertops.
They weere very helpful, coming to my home to estimate the job and show me finishing options. The tech arrived promptly and was finished with all the work in a timely manner. They are very careful about protecting carpeting, walls, etc.

Master shower & bathtub
They refinished my kids bathroom bathtub as well as the master shower and tile. They also replaced the shower door. After about 2 months, the shower pan shifted and the seal broke on the refinshing. I called them and they came back out to repair. They said this happens sometimes and it was covered in full. No other payment required.

Thank you for transforming 3 different apartments for me! All 3 kichens look fabulous. And the bathtub you refinished for me looks brand new. When I need more refinishing done, I know exactly who to call. You did what you said you were going to do & you finished in the time frame you specified. I am definitely a happy customrer!
My fiance and I just recently purchased a 1991 custom Perry home that had not been updated since it was built. Before moving in we elected to have a complete remodel of the house from the ceiling to base boards and everything in between. We knew it was going to be a large project and were watching our budget very carefully. A major concern for us in the remodel was the cost to replace the dual sink cream colored cultured marbled countertops in both the master bath and secondary bath. Also, needed was a regrouting of both the master shower and secondary bathtub surround. However; the biggest financial concern was the replacement of 150 square feet of grey flat edge laminate countertops to a granite countertop. After talking with our contractor who recommended Miracle Method and seeing what they could do online, we were very intersted in what they could do for us. Let's just say I was amazed as are all our fmaily and friends who witnessed the total transformation in our bathrooms and kitchen. The technicians took care to protect all the paint work on the walls and cabinets, the new tile flooring, the new travertine backsplash, and the new fixtures from the overspray. They performed all the work in a timely manner and left the house clean. The total cost for all the work was less then the cost to just replace the kitchen counter and unless you knew that the counter had been refinished, it's hard to believe it's not solid surface. And the bullnose edge is what sold me all together. I highly reccomend Miracle Method and Jonnee and her crew. They are absolutely amazing and definately Miracle workers, and I would proudly share my before and after pictures of the amazing transformation in our bathrooms and kitchen. Many thanks and smiles!!

Goodbye Pink tile and tub!
Jonee, Paul and the service crew were great throughout the process of changing the dated pink tile/tub/sink in my guest bathroom to a lovely Kohler White. We also did a sink in the study bathroom - brown to white. All of it looks gorgeous!

Bathroom Counter Tops
Miracle Method has done 3 of my bathroom counter tops in 3 different colors. They were awlful and old before they came to my rescue. I love all 3 and I am hoping to do my kitchen counter tops very soon also. Thank you Miracle Method!
Very Responsive & Professional
We initially hired Miracle Method to repair and refinish our bathtub back in April 2009. We hired someone else to do the job previously and in a very short period of time the finish started to bubble up and rust was coming through. The guy had gone out of business in this time period and the company he got the franchise through would not stand behind the work or product and help us out. We decided to hire Miracle Method because they seemed so professional and had such good reviews from former customers. Miracle Method was a bit more expensive than the other surface refinishing companies but at this point cost was not our main concern. We wanted the bathtub fixed right. We were very pleased with the finished product. The bathtub looked brand new. A few days after they had finished the bathtub my dog was frightened by thunder and jumped into the bathtub and scratched it. I was concerned that the resurfacing material was not setting up like it should since the dog was able to scratch it. I called Miracle Method and they came out to look at the tub and the technician buffed the bathtub to try and buff out the scratches. We did not use the bathtub again until sometime in 2010 to bathe our infant son. There appeared to be rust coming through on the surface of the bathtub. I contacted Miracle Method of Houston SW about this matter the first week in April 2011. Jonee contacted me the same day and had a technician out to our home and the matter resolve all in less than a week. Miracle Method is a company that not only stands behind their product but they also really do care about their customers and wants them to be happy. We would definitely recommend Miracle Method of Houston SW for any surface refinishing needs.
Am extremely pleased with my refinished bathroom counter tops, tub & surround, shower & new shower door, and tile repair. Jonee, Paul and the technicians are the BEST! Thanks for a great job.
Miracle Method resurfaced the countertops in my bathrooms - which were 25+ years old. They look fantastic!! Very professional, courteous and ON TIME. Have told everyone I know what a fantastic job they did and plan to use again!!
My kitchen has been transformed & the counter tops look perfectly amazing. Master bath sinks & counter were refinished at the same time, and also turned out great. Planning to have the shower enclosure & bath pannel done in the next few weeks to complete the new look. Never imagined that such a quick & relatively inexpensive process can make so much difference. Jonee & the company employees who so easy to work with too. Would rate 6* if I could, thank you Miracle Method!
Happy Miracle Method customer
I just happened to be looking at a local magazine just when I needed Miracle Method so desperately. Jonee, Paul and Patrick were so polite and accurate in description before and after the process. Two bathroom counters and the kitchen countertop were done beautifully and I highly recommend their services. My home is 28 years old and I have been the only owner. They have brought it up to 2010!!!!! I love it.
Miracle Method was simply amazing; we had shower, two vanities, wall,partial floor plus a new shower door installed. It was a wonderful transformation of a twenty year old bathroom. There professionalism from quote to completion was appreciated, it was a pleasure to do business with these folks. We have four more bath areas that are just outdated. We will definitely call the wonderful people at Miracle Method when we are ready. Thank You So Much
Our cast iron bathtub was refinished and looks spectacular! Better yet, everyone was courteous, professional and on time. They even alerted us to a potential problem with the plumbing we were not aware of. Would most definately recommend! And they're pet friendly, not minding our overly exhuberant dog. C. Hart 08/09/2010
Miracle Method refinished our master shower and guest bathroom shower. Both showres look better than brand new. I would highly recommend using this company. You will be glad you did! Kathy D 05/04/2010
What an awesome company to do business with. From the initial meeting with Jonee to Patraick coming out and completing the work they were professional and very reassuring through the process. I would highly recommend this company to anyone look in to restore old sinks, showers or counters. Great Job!!! Pat Francis 02/05/2010
Good professional service. Tub refinishing absoluting outstanding, likewise tile surround. Countertop work was good. Floor refinishing fine, but has minor flaws. I recommend that others consider removing baseboards(planning on replacing them) before fllors are refurbished so that the work extends to the walls. Overall, courteous prompt service. Value for money. Dave 01/30/2010
The previous owner put a hole throught the sink, plus multiple cracks. Paul did a fabulous job and it looks like new. I will definately use again and recommend them highly. Kelly 01/17/2010
Paul, Jonee and Carl were very professional in every way. I had my oversized tub and stand up shower done (they are 30 years old) and they look better than new. I would highly recommend Miracle Method of SW Houston. Paula Lee 10/12/2009
I had this done over three years ago the the tub/shower still look as good as new. I use only Formula 409 per their instructions on cleaning. I could not ask for better service and quality product. And I have recommended to others. Joyce 10/08/2009
I had an excellent experience with Miracle Method of Houston, SW. They were able to make myiron kitchen sink look new again. Thanks to them I get to keep my favorite sink for many more years. Maureen H. 09/30/2009
5 year Angie's List Super Service Award Winner. What some of Angie's Listmembers are saying about our work:
C.S. 08/13/2013 Patrick Murray, our resurfacer, was on time, clean, professional and provided recommendations for future services that his company could provide. He explained everything he was doing and what additional products he would need to complete the job (we needed a couple of plumbing items). My tub looks brand new!
S.P. 05/13/2013 Refinished kitchen counter top and first floor bathroom counter. Paul explained the process clearly and completely and provided me with some options. The work was scheduled promptly and the technician did a wonderful job. He was polite and professional and answered my questions without hesitation.
F.S. 05/08/2013 They resuface my fiberglass tub/enclosure and a faux marble countertop and another countertop. Looks like new, very professional work and at a fraction of the cost of replacing tub, enclosure and 2 countertops.
J.F. 12/17/2012 Cut out the side of the tub for easy access for my elderly mother. Refinished the opening to make it look like it was made that way. Added nonslip coating to the floor of the tub. Added 2 grab bars. Contractor was friendly, helpful and timely. Finished work looks great.
T.A. 01/03/2012 Refinished tub and tiles around it - They also added material so the water wouldn't sit on the side of the tub. It was great - They were prompt and informative. the person who did the tub was on time and did an excellent job. He was responsible about closing the doors so our dog didn't get out. The results were fantastic. They also gave us a quote on doing the kitchen counters which I will do after some other work is completed in our house. This was a great experience with some very professional people.
A.G. 12/27/2011 Resurface the tile in the master bath. They did an awesome job! The tile looks brand new. We are completely satisfied and would highly recommend them.
F.B. 11/09/2011 I had two bath tubs that had begun to retain water and began to rust and I thought the only way to correct the problem was to completely pull out each tub and surrounding marble and ceramic tile. I had heard bad stories about the tub refinising process but I was ill informed. It could be very easy to be taken advantage of but not with Miracle Method group. They came to give a visual estimate and always showed up when they said they would. They explained what would and wouldn't work for my situation and I flet completely at ease. I can only tell you that I'm completely delighted at the outcome.
J.L. 09/06/2011 Jonee came out to verify my problem and explain the remedies available to me. My bathtub is the original that came with the house (1983) and had never been refinished before. I had a rusting spot around the overflow which I wanted corrected before it rusted through. The costs were carefully explained to me for each item. I chose to have the bathtub refinished, some regrouting on the seams of my walls and the drain kit replaced. The process took two days, as previously explained. Mike arrived at the time indicated. He was personable and answered all my questions. He used venting to minimize the chemical smell. He cam ebac kthe next day at the time indicated and finished the job. I am very pleased with the finished product. Look like new.
D.S. 07/28/2011 report work done 12/19/2005 Very professional owner and crew. I've used this Miracle Method twice. Once to resurface and tub and to re-color a bathroom. The second time was to resuface another tub. Both times they took care to cover unaffected surface areas and minimize dust. Before moving into my home at the end of 2005, I hired them to change a sunflower yellow bathroom (yellow tiles everywhere - floors, walls, tub surround, countertops, backsplash). they sprayed over with white as as of July 2011, the coating has held up well, they also resurfaced a tub and that has held up too. A couple of years ago they came over again to resurface a second tub. While working on that, they touched up the first tub for free. I'm truly happy with the workmanship and the quick and easy makeover.
