Access Bath Systems is a South Bay-based family business  The company was created in response to frequent requests for easy access in the bathroom.  Owner Doug Martes has run a bathtub & tile refinishing company for more than 21 years, and saw the need for an affordable answer to bathroom remodel for accessibility.  Refinishing customers would frequently ask about options for elderly or handicapped relatives.  Bathroom remodels can be costly, and many seniors are on a fixed income.  So Mr. Martes decided to devise an answer, and designed the EZ-Step process.  Technicians cut down cast iron, steel or fiberglass bathtubs to create a walk-in shower. In addition to the EZ-Step shower, Access Bath Systems offers grab bars, seats and hand held shower heads as well as complete ADA compliant bathroom and home renovation.  Access Bath offers a full line of bathing units and custom tile construction to accommodate different levels of user ability without the “institutional” look. This is the idea behind Access Bath Systems, finding affordable answers for accessibility needs.


Martes Refinishing was established in 1989, servicing Southern California businesses and homes. In the beginning, it was just Doug and Mary Martes, a husband and wife team. Doug refinished and repaired tubs, tile, sinks and counters of all substrates. Mary began running the administrative side of the business part time, but now it is her full time occupation. Over the years, as the business has grown, numerous technicians were added to the workforce, enabling Doug to focus on bathroom remodeling. Now, the business is established as a professional, reliable vendor for large property management companies, real estate offices, apartment complexes and individual homes.
