"The work was done as described. It was a very professional job and looks better than the new ones we looked at before deciding to refinish. It was a good choice."
came back the next day to do the follow-up work and insert the no-slip pad. The work is guaranteed and we received a follow-up phone call to see if we are satisfied. We are, and I would recommend this outfit to anyone who needs this kind of work done.

Bathtub refinishing

Over time, the bathtub can begin to show signs of wear with stains, scratches, a dull finish or other ugly marks. Bathtub refinishing is an option that can return a bathtub or shower enclosure to like-new appearance.

OK - terminology issue here. The "shower pan" is a collection liner than underlies the shower floor itself, and is designed (if built and plumbed right) to trap any leakage from the shower floor and route it to the same floor drain pipe. Example image here, copper in this case - 

http://indigochreblog.files.wordpress.com/2012/12/img_0835.jpg

It sounds like your are saying the shower floor or base unit failed - likely a fiberglass or plastic shower, which commonly fail due to incomplete support under them. This can be repaired if fiberglass, but is not usually done unless just microcracking, as it is hard to find an expert - usually you have to have a car body fiberglass specialist or a surfboard repair expert do it, and the color will not match perfectly unless you get a new gelcoat over the entire base unit. Cost about $300-500, ASSUMING the material can be repaired - true fiberglass can, thermoplastic can sometimes be welded but anyone's guess how long it will last without cracking again, plastics like PVC can rarely be fixed so they will hold someone standing on them. Any sort of repair is likely to crack again, because you have done nothing to remove the cause of the cracking which is standing on a base that is not fully supported over its full extent. Some cheepo or desperate plumbers try injecting non-pressuring type expanding foam underneath to improve the support - this does a great job of supporting it but unfortunately supports mold, so starts stinking in short order as a rule.

The normal fix is to remove and replace it, because once it is out there is no sense in putting a damaged one back in for the small increment in cost. Removing it means taking the shower wall liners or the bottom row or two of tile out so you can get the new base unit into place (because they overlap it), then replacing them. So, the $3000 range indicated is indicative of this type of job, which typically runs from a very low of around $1500-2000 for an identical base unit, to more typically $3-5,000 depending on whether a shower enclosure or tile walls. Of course,when the new one is put in, it is CRITICAL that it be fully supported - this means rubbing plumbers rouge or similar marking substance on the bottom, test fitting it, and then lifting it out and checking that all the stiffener ribs and support pads made contact with the pan, and making adjusments as necessary until it has full contact, then standing in it and rocking back and forth to check for any points not making full contat and fixing them.

The $10,000 plus numbers you got must have been for entire shower replacement down to the joists and studs, and the $30,000 range number would be typical for a full bathroom remodel with new shower or shower/tub and doors and surround, wall finishes, vanity, sink, toilet, and flooring and door.

Okay, so I am not a big fan of bathtub
Austin Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
and, in general, it's also expensive, but it had to be done. I think this company did a good job.
One tub had significant rust (2" x 9") beneath the drain. The second tub had chips and holes in the enamel and a small amount of rust around the drain. The sink had rust around the overflow holes and the drain.
I give the company an "A" for their service. The tubs and sink are beautiful. They are almost too nice-looking to use. The bottom of the tub I use daily does feel gritty in places, but I don't think bathtub resurfacing is a perfect art. You can't see the gritty spots. You only feel them. The tubs look new, and the work is guaranteed for 5 years.

I had started by going to Tile and tub remodeling, and had some quotes. Prices for a complete tear down are high. I found
Austin Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
and had Christian give me a quote. Wife and I were satisfied with the price. Realize this is to resurface your existing tile and bathtub. We agreed on the price and work was scheduled. Christian contacts me by phone and email and kept me updated on any time changes. Christian pointed out that the fumes are harsh and I needed to be out of the house as well as my pet's. My wife and I were ok with this in
Austin Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
of the small inconvenience we be able to save much. This process cleans the exiting tile, tub and grout. The finish seals any existing hairline cracks on the tile and etc,. Once the work was complete the tube and tile walls glittered with a clean white look. I would also recommend that you may want to add a bathtub floor surface which consists of a sand like material rolled to bathtub floor which you do to prevent slipping. don't skimp on this, my wife says it is much better then keeping those rubber floor mats inside the tub. The bathtub and tile are easier to maintain then ever before. My wife remarked that the walls and tub are now so much easier to maintain. Also never use a abrasive such as comet or anything that can dull the finish. Scrubbing Bubbles works just fine. Finish is all white and look great. Also our savings account is happy. Again, listen to Christian the fumes require you to be out of the house. I had a window cracked open for about a day to force the fumes out of the house. A very small inconvenience, but a terrific savings.
thank you,

had an opening and was able to do the job a week before we'd scheduled.
Austin Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
did the work, I liked working with him, although I just removed the drains and got out of his way. The finished work looks great. I've never had this done before, and since this is in a rent house, I hope to get 5+ years out of the refinish. Ultimately, the bathrooms need a full remodel.
Happy with the company, a good experience.

Vicktor did an excellent job of

the tubs and sinks in two bathrooms and returned to address a few issues after the first visit. We ran into some problems in scheduling the follow-up visit, but ultimately I was pleased with the outcome. Since we have a third bathroom, the delay in the follow-up work did not cause too much inconvenience.

This was scheduled for a Friday afternoon after 12:30.
Austin Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
called around 2:00pm saying he was on his way and apologized for the delay. Since I had blocked out the whole afternoon it was no problem.
He arrived and promptly went to work. The bathtub looks like new and it is 30 years old. He completed the job and cleaned up in a shorter time than I had anticipated.

We dealt with
Austin Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
. We got this service as an "Angie's List Big Deal", so I'm not sure what the regular price was.
Austin Bathtub Refinishers Provider Name Locked
showed up when he said he would, and called me when he was just a few minutes away, as we requested. The whole job took between 3 and 4 hours. The tub he refinished was installed in 1947, white porcelain, and was slightly pitted and dull due to years of bleach and Ajax scrubbing. The bottom was not smooth and was uncomfortable to sit in. The refinish job left the tub bright white and very smooth with a nice shine. We would recommend
