Born in Santa Monica, owner Tom Bralley has always lived and worked in Southern California. He attended UCLA, where he studied math, science and the arts. After graduating with a degree in music, he combined the precision of the sciences with the creativeness of the arts and began his professional career in decorative painting and finishing.
Tom quickly became firmly established in the community for consistently delivering the highest quality of workmanship to every client. After dedicating years to the painting profession, Tom saw the opportunity to use his painting expertise and his knowledge of color to expand into the specialty field of restoring, sealing and finishing vintage terracotta tile.
B Sealed was born through past experience and through a new vision. Tom became an innovator in restoring valuable and historical pieces. The business has now grown to include the restoration of not one, but a variety of surfaces. And through all the growth, Tom continues to follow his original credo: “Always offer the highest quality; Satisfy the customer at all costs.”
From his humble beginnings as a painter, Tom’s passion and expertise in sealing is now sought worldwide. Yet, his creativeness, his energy and his joy are still derived from the gratitude of his customers that continue to acknowledge that “his workmanship is impeccable and his service outstanding.”
Tom Bralley has done stone work indoors and a large deck outside that needed a fresh look. We’re very happy with the result.
With many thanks for a terrific job – from beginning to end!
Once in a while, one is fortunate enough to know and work with a professional who is exceptional. It is my pleasure to write a letter of reference for Tom Bralley and B Sealed….
With natural stone floors and marble kitchen counters, it is essential to keep them clean and properly sealed. I have found B Sealed to be extremely efficient in their work product, PLUS they do the little things to leave the house perfect!
Tom’s overall knowledge of various surfaces is apparent and appreciated. He is always enthusiastic and wants the best results, which I really appreciate. I trust Tom and his people in our home… I am glad we have the relationship that we do.
I highly recommend Tom Bralley and B Sealed. I can be reached directly at (310) 274-1442 should additional information be required.
Your firm did a superlative job, coming in as promised on budget, on schedule. The total cost was about $7,000 over a time frame of six weeks with various, subsequent activities.
We remain impressed at the wide range of proven capabilities offered by yourself and your men, from the repair of furniture up through blending and re-staining to match previous coloration and even the complete cleaning, re-coloring and sealing of tile floors and courtyards on these premises.
Whitewashing of the massive bookcases in our living and family rooms has emphasized their importance as major pieces within this structure. These were among the truly “big” jobs on-site in addition to your undertaking repair and re-staining of literally dozens of antique pieces we have collected all over the world during the past forty years.
The artistic sensitivity consistently demonstrated in handling rare works: 5th Century India sculptures, 15th Century Indochina bronzes, 18th Century Chinese work is greatly appreciated. Your men were quiet, well-mannered and very talented. That you personally planned and supervised everything was of very real importance to us.
Again, many thanks, Tom. All best wishes.
