“I want to take this opportunity to thank you for a job well done. The ceiling tile process you used 8 months ago on over 80,000 square feet of tile has received many compliments and still looks marvelous.
Because of an inferior filter that we eventually replaced, the original 5 foot square tile in our administration building obtained a dark, dirty grey color within the first few years. We have attempted many times to find a process to clean the tiles to obtain the white appearance it once had. We tried washing, dry cleaning, painting, and many glued or skin processes, but none were satisfactory. Because of our failures, we decided to replace the tile, but found that the 2-inch thick existing tile was no longer available and we would have to obtain a lesser quality product at much higher prices than anticipated. We were fortunate to see your process prior to spending much more money than need be.
Because of your process, the ceiling in our building now looks as good as it did 12 years ago, and will remain that way for many years to come. We no longer worry about it turning grey because it is now washable.
Thanks again for a job well done. I hope you are very successful in your business because you have service that is greatly needed. You cannot only be proud of the savings that you provide but also the quality of work you give.”
-W. Tom Richards – Superintendent of Maintenance
“Your company recently applied their re-skinning process to our existing Silok ceiling tiles at the Becton Dickinson facility in East Rutherford. N.J. These ceiling tiles had been in place approximately seven years and were badly soiled. The area involved l2,OOO square feet of office space that was being renovated for our R&D Marketing, Advertising and Sales departments. The application was performed satisfactorily and on schedule. The results were very pleasing and served to provide us with a very acceptable solution to what may have been a difficult and expensive situation. We favorably recommend both your company and the re-skinning process and would not hesitate to use your services again should the need arise.”
-R.F Perez – Facilities Staff Planner
“This letter is an acknowledgement of the professional manner in which the work was performed by Acoustic Enterprises, Inc.
Over the past few years we have tried six different companies processes to clean our 2′ X 5′ cloth faced tile, none of which were satisfactory.
Don Harrison did one office at his expense so we could inspect the finished area. After the refacing process was approved Don set up a work area and completed refacing over 197,000 sq. ft.
Please feel free to use my name as a reference.”
“Acoustic Enterprises, Inc. is a small, woman-owned business based out of Colorado. The process that will be used to refurbish ceiling tiles (VACU-BOND) is a patented process, so no other vendor can offer this service without being in violation of the patent. The cost per square foot is reasonable. Refurbishing the ceiling tiles ($2.00 per square foot) is less costly than ordering new ceiling tiles (anywhere from $2.88 per square foot to $5.00 per square foot). Also, the ceiling tiles refurbished through this patented process are easily washable (with any damp rag), thus extending the life of the aging ceiling in the headquarters building.
Acoustic Enterprises, Inc. supplied me with a list of references. All comments regarding the company (very professional, very conscientious), its work crew, and the finished product were positive. All references did pilot projects, and stated that if they had the necessary funding, they would have had Acoustic Enterprises, Inc. continue throughout the rest of their facilities.
This small business is looking for a way present their product in the Portland metropolitan area. Successful completion of a project for a federal agency in the area will allow for Acoustic Enterprises, Inc. to establish a market in Portland.
Office Facilities was looking for a way to maintain the ceiling in the headquarters building. Full-scale replacement of the ceiling would cost quite a bit more (see comparison above), as well as be very wasteful. We will be re-using all of the ceiling tile in the building, thus promoting an environmentally friendly process.”
-Paul Ratkovic – CFM, FMP
“Our association with your firm began in 1983 when you reskinned in excess of 132,000 square feet of our 5′ x 5′ ceiling tile. This provided us the appearance of a brand new ceiling while saving over $200,000.00 as opposed to our planned replacement cost.
We have especially appreciated your sense of urgency, concern and complete honesty in handling our account.
Your continued improvements in product and process have been shared with us to further improve our ceiling appearance. Your dedication to customer satisfaction continues to be one of your outstanding attributes.
Please feel free to contact me anytime you would like to show our ceiling as an example of your work. Also, do not hesitate to use my name as a reference.”
-Lewis K. Hyer – Manager/Corporate Facilities
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your company for your past and present prompt attention to our ceiling tile problems in The Denver National Bank Building. The work you have done for us over the last two years has kept our tennants in attractive areas while extending considerable savings to us over replacing our ceiling tiles.
We appreciate your continued efforts in trying different methods of your “reskinning” process to reduce our costs on ceiling tile maintenance and increasing the attractive life of our tile.
If I can be of assistance to you or your potential customers as a reference, or offer information on procedures and results with your “reskinning” process, please contact me.”
-Robert M Guthrie – Building Engineer
“We were quite pleased to see the results of the recent “re-skinning” job your company performed on our ceiling tiles on our Cedar Level area. It looks great. We were also happy to see the work completed as promised on schedule, with no complaints on the construction cleanup. Since there was considerable savings as compared to replacement, we were very interested in the end results. Those questions have been answered and the results speak for themselves. We are pleased with everything. It is a great service and it looks good.”
-Bob Connors – Director Property and Admin Services
“The ceiling tile project went great. Acoustic Enterprises Inc. are an A-1 quality outfit. Their level of professionalism and commitment is superb. The relaminating process works perfectly. They also clean the grid as the tiles are being resurfaced. The owners, Don and Jacque were always there for each part of the process. Their patented process sells itself.
Other benefits we saw were that when ceiling tiles are down, the contractor noted flaws in the attic such as an un-attached heater duct/plenum, missing grid supports and the slow water pipe leak in Basilyn’s office. This info is passed on to the maintenance officer for later repair. The only waste generated was the excess edge of fabric that is cut from each ceiling tile.
Gary Poulsen and Mike Beres inspected the ACT-400 division area this morning about 7:30am and were extremely satisfied with the results. Many people from the ACT-610 branch came to see the ceiling tile re-skinning process on Friday afternoon.”
-Jay Repko – FAA
“We received your shipment of resurfaced tile today. This completes the work called for in our contract to resurface 105,000 sq.ft. and to purchase 1000 tile for our inventory. I would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for the professional manner in which the work was handled. Please pass on my thanks to Dan and Dale for their efforts. We feel that they did an outstanding job, the proof of which is in our ceilings. Please feel free to use me as a reference. I would be glad to show off our white ceilings.”

“Its no secret that PMSC is recognized as the growth machine in the insurance industry. Its no wonder that they have the ability to keep in step with our nations growing technology on environmentally friendly products and services. Mr. Ray Ross and Mr. Roy Neeley both play a key role in the operation of our Blythewood facility, and are responsible for seeking out the Denver based company that was brought in to refurbish our existing ceiling tile.
As a women owned business Acoustic Enterprises Inc. developed and patented a process for resurfacing acoustical ceiling tile that offers building owners and managers a wide range of benefits. The process is done on site with their VACU-BOND® machine, whereby a new surface is applied to existing, soiled & stained ceiling tiles, using various surface materials such as, washable vinyl’s, or commercial fabrics. All materials used are class A fire rated. The patented VACU-BOND® process is providing beautiful new ceilings in buildings that will endure for many years to come, it is costing consumers less, and it is having a tremendous impact on conserving our environment from further destruction now and in the future.
PMSC realizes that using innovative technology to save our environment is an important issue. Millions of square feet of ceiling tile are dumped into dwindling landfills around the country every year. Acoustic Enterprises, with the help of everyone, has a goal to reduce this unnecessary waste substantially with their resurfacing process.
POLICY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS CORPORATION is proud to be among the leaders in Corporate America that is devoted to using technology that works in cleaning up our Environment. Acoustic Enterprises’ patented ceiling tile process makes a statement on the future of our buildings and our environment.”
