A former service engineer-turned-entrepreneur from Brundall has become the first person to offer an independent hard surface repair and restoration service in Norfolk.
Stephen Yaxley started Surface Repair Solutions with help from Broadland District Council’s business support team. He fixes chips in worktops, marks on floors and furniture or cracks in baths and basins, and can also add colour and replicate patterns to help the repaired areas blend in.
Mr Yaxley works with both domestic properties and businesses and has already secured a contract with a large holiday park on the coast, as well as work with local building developers.
“People who have damaged their bath think they need to get a new one, but that wouldn’t just mean the cost of a new bath, it would mean getting someone out to plumb it in,” said Mr Yaxley. “I am repairing not replacing. It’s green because it means things aren’t going into landfill.”
