I moved into an older condominium building and have done some major renovations over the years. Thanks to Better Solutions, I not only saved money but also the headaches and mess of a bathroom renovation in an older building.
I started with having a brilliant blue bathtub re-finished and was so impressed with the job that Austin did, I immediately asked him to schedule a return visit and refinish the tiles around the tub area. At the same time, I was surprised to learn that they could also refinish countertops and we scheduled that as well. My bathroom now complements the other rooms in my condo and I couldn’t be happier.
Both Austin and Fraserm took due care and attention with their preparation by covering existing cabinetry and flooring then cleaned up at the end of the day, leaving nothing for me to discard or clean. I also want to thank Keith and Linda for the follow-up phone calls and emails to ensure I was happy with the results and offers to answer any questions I may have.
Thank you Better Solutions – a job well done!

Everyone in the Better Solutions team seems happy, and a customer like me can see why. They possess the entrepreneur’s dream, a “unique competitive advantage.” Their in-house service costs no more than the inconvenient one it replaces but is much easier to schedule, is delivered without fuss or mess or invasive fumes, and (thanks to the skill of well trained staff) produces a beautiful result the vendor can afford to warranty for a good long time.
Now that I can again enjoy the sight and feel of my claw-foot bathtub, I’m happy, too – but in fact I enjoyed every stage of my business relationship with Better Solutions, from the friendly response to my first phone call to the moment when Fraser Davies had finished buffing the tough new surface to a shine that would rival that of any factory-fresh fixture. Fraser’s preparation and clean-up were meticulous, and not only did he work hard and well but he was punctual, polite, considerate, thorough, perceptive, hard-working, and fun to be around.
Having had this job done twice before, I’m pleased to have found a real industry leader in Vancouver and to learn that the refinishing capacity of Better Solutions includes tile, countertops and stainless steel. “Refuse, re-use, recycle” is a household rule, but conserving rather than discarding sometimes takes a lot of know-how (and R&D). A business can truthfully advertise a better solution when it brings materials, techniques, tools, and customer relationship savvy together around a fourth sustainability R – “restore.”

Thanks to Better Solutions, Fraser and Austin for saving us $6,000 on our bathroom renovations. By simply refinishing the tiles in the shower and around the tub, we not only saved money but all the headaches that go with a major reno. Along with the shiny “new” tile job, we updated the flooring, fixtures and lighting and now our beautiful bathroom looks like it should be in a show home!

I recently moved into an apartment and needed to update the bathroom sinks and vanities (one solid marble slab counter top and sink combined style) as they were outdated and cracked around the drain and basin areas. I was totally amazed at the transformation the refinishing did the bathrooms!
In just 1 day, I had remodeled and updated my bathrooms from ugly to beautiful without having to remove any existing counters and cabinets.
The end result was even better than I had expected. Also, Better Solutions Ltd. proved to be very professional and efficient in getting the job done as well as the clean up. I certainly recommend refinishing over remodeling to anyone and wouldn’t hesitate to do it again in the future.

Better Solutions is the best way by far!
We pondered the idea of refinishing the 3 bathrooms of our heritage home for many years. Cost and time were always the factor that seemed to keep pushing the idea away.
Now, with Better Solutions, we were able to give our bathrooms a new look and feel that will last for many years, saving us thousands of dollars. Both Fraser and Austin were a pleasure to deal with. They were courteous, on time, and very proficient.
We recommend Better Solutions as an alternate and environmentally friendly choice to extensive remodeling and a excellent way to save your vintage tubs and tiles.
