Entrance areas and stairwells from parking garages take a serious beating and typically do not receive the same level of attention as other common areas throughout your building. This is often the first finished space observed by those visiting your facility and a fantastic opportunity to create an amazing first impression!
For Ms. Adkins project we started with the walls & floors. The floors had layers of old wax over heavy soiling in the grout lines. After stripping and repairing the tile & grout, we utilized our RETROGLAZE process to seal grout lines and re-glaze the floor tile. All grout lines were repaired and received Grout Color Infusion to give them a fresh new look. We then detailed and touched-up all painted surfaces, cleaned the glass and polished stainless fixtures, storefronts, doors and thresholds.
Give us a call to schedule a no cost and no obligation survey of those areas you feel could use a little love.
My apologies if it seems I am bragging, but what an amazing start for 2019! A quick thanks to all of our clients, both new and existing for making January an incredible month for our company! Our acquisitions of Integrity Stone and Plasterkraft have produced results far greater than expected, and I am so thankful for the additions of John Jackson, Brad Bruce and Matthew Mitchell to our leadership team. Their combined experience, talents and energy are elevating our game to incredible heights! We amped-up our game in the field also, with the addition of 4 new technicians that each bring unique skills and fresh perspective to our overall service offering in Kansas City. January also brought us new opportunities for regional expansion into other markets, national distribution of our RETROSHINE products and a stronger than expected boost for our RETROCARE and restroom programs. I am so proud of our team as all have stepped up to position us for a very successful 2019.
RETROCHEM Inc will soon be opening a downtown Kansas City RETROPROS office in the historic Scarritt Arcade Building located at 818 Grand.
Our new base of service operations will bring us closer to clients & projects, while serving as a live training ground for historical renovation of most every architectural hard surface imaginable.
This incredible Root & Siemens designed building was constructed in 1906 and listed on the Historical Register in 1971.
We are very excited and can't wait to begin moving in just after the holidays!

During our work on the Norman School Lofts Historical Renovation, we spent a lot of time in the Midtown Home Depot on Linwood Blvd in Kansas City and got to know several of their staff members pretty well. During one of our visits, I struck up a conversation with a very friendly and helpful cashier by the name of Victoria. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that she had attended school at Norman as a young girl. I shared this experience with our team and they came up with the idea of using leftover reclaimed materials to create a special gift to Victoria for being so kind and helpful. Using wood from original doors, fixtures and floors, our team crafted a one of a kind cutting board and with approval from Kevin (Store Manager) we presented it to her.

Repair & Restore Instead of Replace!
The first of our specialty service programs is a micro-remodel solution for commercial restrooms. This program offers a flexible, tenant friendly and cost-effective restoration alternative to replacement of the 8 most common hard surfaces (entrance, walls, floors, counters, fixtures, partitions, ceilings & mirrors). Clients pick & choose services for areas needing the greatest attention. The result is an itemized estimate that best fits your priorities and budget.
We then develop a schedule that allows restrooms to stay open and available for use during normal hours of operation, with work typically occurring after hours. Each day, at the same time, our quality control person will visit the site and evaluate progress to insure we are on schedule and providing the best quality of work possible. Our client knows in advance when QC will occur and is always welcome to participate in these daily inspections. A daily progress report with key areas of interest and recommendations is then copied to our project team leader, the customer and our RETROPROS management team. This eliminates surprises and supports a pro-active approach to completing the project as efficiently as possible.
Earlier this year we soft launched this program and the response has been amazing! More information will be made available as we update our website and complete our program spec sheets. As always, we sincerely appreciate the opportunity to serve and know you are the reason for our continued success.
We will always do what we say, own our work and make you look good!
