Bio
A system to put a hard surface topcoat on porcelain bathtubs and sinks became the foundation of the company that one day would become known as DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen. Under The Dwyer Group umbrella, the company grew nationally as Worldwide Refinishing Systems Inc. As the company focused more and more on remodeling kitchens and bathrooms, and it became known as DreamMaker in 1999. When DreamMaker President and CSO Doug Dwyer bought the company from his family in 2003, the company expanded its services, moving beyond resurfacing and refinishing to become a full-service interior remodeling company.
