About SurfaceFXinc, Santa Barbara's Surfacing Specialists

Why Are We Unique?

owner and president, Michael Rottapel

Surface FX had its beginnings almost 30 years ago in Santa Barbara when its owner and president, Michael Rottapel, then a biology major at UCSB and working part time in the construction industry, was hired to waterproof and remodel an underground house.  That first job led to a relationship with a division of Beatrice Chemical and ultimately a career change. 

Michael formed a company that went on to develop more relationships with a variety of construction industry manufacturers and over time he became known as the "go to guy" for putting his clients together with the right products to solve their construction related problems.

Today that small company has evolved into a 5000 square feet show room and distribution center that represents almost 20 different major manufacturers.
