We believe it’s important to know the people you are hiring so here is some information about us and our company. Southern States Refinishing is a local family-owned business since 1980. We are born and raised in North Georgia. John Dykes started his career by helping his mom with her cleaning company, Southern States Cleaning. He learned how to refinish and repair bathtubs along with other skills on how to run a business. A few years later he started his own company selling clawfoot tubs and fixing bathtubs for residential and commercial areas around North Georgia. That is where the name “Southern States Refinishing” came about. Over time we noticed customers asking if we knew how to do decorative concrete and our opinion on what to do with their concrete floors. We decided to take this opportunity to learn everything we could about concrete floors such as epoxy, polished concrete, acid stain and dyes, garage floor coatings, and overlays. After doing a lot of practice using samples and even working on our own driveway, basement, and garage we were ready to provide our new skill in the community. Since then we have been providing these services for homeowners helping them increase their homes re-sale value and giving them a concrete floor that is much more appealing than the boring plain floors they once had. We also have done larger concrete jobs for commercial facilities such as the Chemence Medical in Alpharetta, a Fire Station in Gwinnett, Anytime Fitness in Dawsonville, and other well-known areas around North Georgia. Our team currently consists of John Dykes, his daughter, Arica, and his son-in-law, Connor. We couldn’t be more proud of where Southern States Refinishing has taken our family and we thank you for helping us achieve the American Dream.
